Red Sox Beat Dodgers to Win World Series
Boston claimed its second title in five years — and fourth in 15 — capping a franchise-record 108-win season by beating Los Angeles 5-1 in Game 5. David Price pitched a dominant seven innings, while Sox sluggers lit up Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw with three home runs. Unlikely hero Steve Pearce, a 35-year-old recent addition to the team, earned an MVP trophy by hitting two HRs yesterday and batting .333 in the Series. Meanwhile, the Dodgers’ championship drought has now lasted 30 seasons.
