Machado's first World Series one to forget for Dodgers

Machado's first World Series one to forget for Dodgers

"It's one of the worst experiences as a fan ever".

A June acquisition from Toronto, Pearce had three homers and seven RBIs in the final two games.

Having also lost the 2017 final to Houston, the Dodgers' wait for a first World Series since 1988 continues.

All in all, the Red Sox were the better team and deserved the championship in every way.

His Cora-nation came Sunday night, when the Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5. They acquired Yu Darvish from the Rangers a year ago. This year, he was the one addressing his players in the visitors locker room.

"I don't know because that's not up to me or a decision I can make right now", he said. They rewarded his confidence with a franchise-record 108 wins during the regular season, followed by a fairly dominating march to a title.

But Pearce wasn't the only unexpected hero for Boston in the postseason. Boston didn't have a setup man; they had rovers.

"Prior to (removing Hill from the game), before the top of the seventh was going on, it was a long sixth for us".

He got to the plate one time in Boston's sweep of the 2007 World Series, putting down a sacrifice bunt for a team led by David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and Manny Ramirez.

"He's one of those guys who carries the team without all the recognition", Betts said.

"First of all, they gave me a chance". "I never had a manager that was like rah, rah, screaming at guys. And I think that goes very well with us as players, when if he's not panicking, why should we?"

While he certainly made it look easy from April to October, Cora said that was not always the case. Dave Dombrowski, who is celebrating his first title as an executive since he won with the Florida Marlins back in 1997.

"I didn't say anything that anyone didn't know", Sale explained. "We believed in ourselves, we believed in him and we went out and executed".

"It's something we talked about before [Game 4]". They simply got beaten by a better team. They did it in the offseason.

And the 35-year-old said the success at Dodger Stadium would be hard to top. To have Steve Pearce homer twice while powering the Red Sox offense to glory just might get you a lunch with a noteworthy producer.

"Dave did an outstanding job. And I'm definitely glad that the time came and we moved past it". "It's wonderful", said Cora. Prior to the start of the Fall Classic, Cora spoke about what it meant for him to represent Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

Boston owner John Henry, who also owns Liverpool, declared the side the best in the franchise history, not that it softened the blow for the Dodgers of losing to one of the great sides. "That would be great".

Cora again turned Dodger Stadium into his personal party room. "I started locking it in, put on my headphones to get in that mode". "He said 'Keep an eye on me". He tapped his heart several times to Red Sox fans behind the first base dugout while walking to the bench.
