Fall classic: Wild trip for Boston infielder Nunez in Game 3

LOS ANGELES CA- OCTOBER 27 Eduardo Nunez #36 of the Boston Red Sox goes down goes down after being struck by Austin Barnes #15 of the Los Angeles Dodgers during the 13th inning of Game 3 of the World Series against the LA Dodgers at Dodger Stadium on O

But what was most remarkable about the game, beyond all the records that were broken, and even that it brought the Dodgers back into the Series at 2-1, was the pitching performance of Nathan Eovaldi, the Red Sox righthander acquired in July from the Rays, even in a losing effort.

And Kinsler knows he was in large part responsible for helping them dig out of it.

The Dodgers got a home run from Joc Pederson in the third inning but were heldscoreless over the next 10 innings by Red Sox starter Rick Porcello, alongwith a string of eight relievers. Couple that with a sense of new life for L.A. after narrowly avoiding falling in a 3-0 hole and this Series could very well be all tied up after the final out Saturday.

He became the youngest Dodgers pitcher to throw six or more scoreless innings in a World Series game since Johnny Podres in 1955.

His follies began in the Boston 13th when, with Nunez batting, Brock Holt took off from first on a pitch that bounced.

Boston can put the brooms away, after Muncy's strike meant Los Angeles won 3-2 avoid a clean sweep and keep the World Series alive at 2-1 heading into Saturday's (other) game. Once again, the play left Nunez face down on the ground. Puig followed with his grounder up the middle and a stumbling Kinsler made a sidearm sling that bounced way wide of first.

"Those last nine innings or so just kind of blended together". With two out, a runner on second and the Red Sox clinging to a one-run lead, Yasiel Puig hit a slow roller toward Kinsler.

"I just wanted to have another good at-bat", said Muncy, who had a pair of hits and scored twice.

But the Red Sox couldn't close it out.

His options for Game 4 include Pomeranz, ace Chris Sale on three days' rest or a total bullpen game with a bullpen that has pitched 20 1/3 innings in the first three games.

Game 3 of the World Series was the longest World Series game by both innings and time of game, and it ended at 3:30 a.m.

"Awesome, he's a great kid, not because he plays for me and we run together", Cora said. The Sox now lead by 2 -1 with another game tonight in L.A. We expect Richie to come out with some fire like he always has. "Considering where we're at, down 2-1, home crowd behind us, I think there's a little bit of momentum on our side, yeah".
