Dodgers Outlast Red Sox in Record-Setting Game 3 of the World Series

Source: Boston Globe

LOS ANGELES Red Sox manager Alex Cora threw his pregame plans in the air in the 12th inning of Game 3 of the World Series on Friday night/Saturday morning. He sent Game 4 starter Nathan Eovaldi out to pitch, wagering the righthander could hold the Los Angeles Dodgers down long enough for his team to find a way to win.

The gamble almost worked. The Sox took the lead in the 13th inning and were one out away from putting the series in a headlock when the Dodgers scored on an error to tie the score.

That was only the start of the drama. One of the most memorable games in World Series history finally ended in the 18th inning when Max Muncy homered to beat the Sox, 3-2.

It was the longest World Series game by inning and time 7 hours and 20 minutes. The game ended at 3:30 a.m. in Boston.

1. Saw an 18-inning game once. The first of a doubleheader. All total 27 innings in a day.

Started about 1 and lasted to midnight. Even all the first string players had gone home. Don't know what the record is. This was when LA was in the old Pacific Coast League.

3. I was at the Astros/Dodgers 22 inning game many moons ago.

I was hoping to see the Dodgers lose this one as well but nnnooooooooooooooooooooo.

Rooting for the Sox but I'm nervous now.

5. For me it was LA/Expos 22 innings in 1989

We had an 10 year old kid with us so we left somewhere around the 17th inning. I think they were still battling by the time we got home, over an hour later.

Im pulling for the Sox, too, but a 3-0 lead would have sucked all the drama out, so I can deal with an LA win. Their end is inevitable (fingers crossed...)

6. I love extra inning games

The longest I ever attended was at Angels stadium about 10 years ago, I think it was against the A's. It lasted 18 innings and they lost 2-1, one of those crazy games like this where both sides kept getting close but then would be turned back. By the end of the game the people that were left had all moved down to the seats behind the dugouts, it was almost like being at a high school game so few were there.

7. That should do interesting things to the pitching.

18 inning games are nightmares for managers.

8. Boston's relief pitcher, Eovaldi was a most spectacular workhorse

After six remarkable innings pitching, his 96th pitch was 96 MPH! Bummer he doesn't get a do-over on his 97th pitch.

9. Wish the Red Sox sucked as bad as B's timing last night

 

But, I now realize it was a master plan to wear out the Sox pitchers.

Tonight, it is going to be 2-2

And you Red Sox fans will be going Boo Hoo
