World goes insane over ‘milk guy’ at game five

Betts, the likely American League MVP, was just 4-for-19 in the World Series heading into Game 5, but his sixth-inning home run off Kershaw gave Boston a 3-1 lead.

David Price proved his post-season mettle, Steve Pearce homered twice and Boston beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 on Sunday to finish off a one-sided World Series in five games.

The Red Sox won a franchise record and Major League Baseball best 108 games during the 162-game regular season and continued that domination in the World Series to win a fourth title in 15 years.

Red Sox starter David Price, who pounded his chest upon leaving the field after the seventh, went seven-plus innings, giving up a run on three hits and two walks.

The Red Sox lost that game, but they rebounded in Game 4 and rolled over LA in Game 5 to clinch their fourth title since 2004.

The petition has been filed two days after Verma moved the court challenging the similar action against him by the government. The feud between the CBI's top two - Alok Verma and Rakesh Asthana - escalated with each accusing the other of corruption.

Pearce gave Boston a 2-0 lead they would never relinquish with a two-run blast in the first and added a solo shot in the eighth.

"Top to bottom, a complete team effort, " J.D. Martinez said of the Red Sox domination in October. "And when I came in it, was having fun and laughing, everyone was together and talking baseball".

And then there was Price, who after years of playoff failure was pure money in his last three starts, including the jubilant clincher.

"We're a bunch of grinders", said Pearce, who was dealt in June when the Jays officially began their fire sale.

"No, no, I don't", he said before Game 5.

Machado's three home runs and 12 RBIs rank second among players in this year's postseason, but most of his production happened early.

Boston never looked back from that damaging first inning: the Dodgers' bats that went cold for deep stretches of the series were ineffective once again on a balmy Los Angeles evening. "And I think that goes very well with us as players, when if he's not panicking, why should we?" Only the Yankees (27) and Cardinals (11) have been more successful, and Boston is now tied for third with the Athletics. At one point, they were down 4-0, but Pearce helped start a rally in the eighth and ninth innings.

By the end of 2018, Palka was a White Sox fan favorite with 27 home runs - a new team rookie record for a left-handed hitter.

That all came after he started Game 2 and pitched in relief in Game 3.
