Donald Trump Blames Dodgers' Dave Roberts for Blowing World Series Game

Total domination is complete.

The well-travelled journeyman wound up as the World Series MVP on Sunday night after hitting two home runs that sent Boston over the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5.

The Red Sox will give the ball to Chris Sale on Sunday as they look to close out the World Series. He later had a solo home run in the eighth.

"It is fantastic how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through nearly 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever (s) who get shellacked".

Kershaw allowed four runs and seven hits - three of them homers - in seven innings.

The Red Sox exploded for five runs in the ninth inning.

This is the ninth championship for Boston, tying the Red Sox with the Athletics for third most all time. Alex Cora became the first manager from Puerto Rico to guide a team to the title. He continues to be a big contributor for the Sox since being acquired in June from Toronto.

When spring training opened in February, no player had more to prove than David Price. To their credit, they fought back and won a baseball game.

The Red Sox also beat two 100-win teams to get to this stage, knocking off the Yankees (100 wins) in the American League Division Series and the defending champion Houston Astros (103 wins) in the American League Championship Series.

We'll update with more 2018 World Series Game 4 ratings later, but for now here's a stat to tide you over: last night's game drew a 24.7/47 in the LA market, which was actually up 6% from how the comparable baseball match-up of 2017 did. Only their rival, the Yankees, had more wins en route to winning it all, winning 125 games in 1998.

He began aggressively, throwing strikes on his first six pitches, and the Red Sox were ready.

But once Dodgers manager Dave Roberts took out starter Rich Hill with one on and one out in the seventh and 91 pitches on the board, the Sox started their rally back.
