What a game!!!
AB just saved the game.

Benny Baseball just bailed out Kimbrel!

Reddick made a great catch to rob Betts and Boston of the runs that would have locked up the game. Benintendi made a great catch to lock up the game. Along with bailing out Kimbrel and Cora.

Just my opinion here but the call was blown. Based on the replays Betts definitely reached into the stands after the ball. Once the ball crosses the fence the fans are allowed to "make a play" for it. The only thing here though is that they can NOT interfere with the players glove and replays also clearly showed Betts glove being impeded from what was going to be a great catch. (I'm of the opinion Betts would have caught the ball) Were I the umpire I would have ruled it as a ground rule double. NO homerun but NO out either.

We'll just have to disagree on this one.  No pictures or video that I have seen showed Betts definitely in the stands. MLB network did a great illustration on it .

IMO the call was correct. No angle showed the ball over the fence but it looked like the ball was going to land in Bett’s glove. No one can guarantee he would have made the play but it sure looked like it would have been caught.

It’s going to suck rooting against Beni and the Sox if they advance and the Dodgers advance.

Redemption for David Price.
I've never been a fan of his - but I saw how excited he was last night when Bennie made the great catch.
He told Cora after the game he wanted the ball tonight.
Guess he corralled his post season demons - what a great pitching display he put on.

Kimbrel looked much, much better.

Go Sox - sure wish they were going to play close enough to make a game.
(I made one of the games in St. Louis in 2013 and what a thrill to see a World Series game)

Yes - last night's game was one of my favorite ever post season games.
The defensive gems by both teams were something to behold.
And Bregman is unbelievably good at 3rd base.

I’m shocked my wife doesn’t have a hidden camera set up to watch me during games. I will be jumping up and down, waving runners around third and who knows what other antics. My pit bull hides when I watch baseball. Guess she gets nervous cause I am so tense and overly animated.

Well Cora does continue to start Kinsler over Holt.......so yeah I would call that a bad decision.  :)

Bats are doing fine as it is. 8 runs scored last night and 5 of them off of Kershaw alone.

Meanwhile..........9 wins down and 2 more to claim their ninth WS title.

Awful nice of Roberts to make completely idiotic pitching decisions again tonight. This loss is squarely on him and so was last night for pulling Baez when he was absolutely owning folks.

I was worried before the postseason about the Sox middle relief pitching.
They've been great and Cora's decision to use a starter for an inning late in the game has paid off.

They've been over performing for sure. I keep waiting on the Matt Barnes implosion. Kelly has been impressive, finally pitching to his expectations. I've noticed Cora stayed away from Hembree and Workman(now out of lineup).

Workman isn't even on the WS roster now. He had the one appearance in the LDS? Or maybe it was early in the LCS and flat out stunk. But good news is he was replaced not by Stephen Wright, which would have been the smart choice, but instead by Drew Pomeranz. Who it so happens stinks just as bad.

Wow.......I sure thought it would be JD on the bench tonight since he has a tender ankle. Instead Cora is using him in LF while Betts stays in RF and Holt is playing 2nd base. Cora is playing with fire here imo. We can NOT afford to lose JD to an injury tonight and risk losing him for the rest of the series. I guess Cora is trying to go for the throat tonight and put LA down 3-0 in the series, which would make a comeback by them highly unlikely. Only ONE team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in a post season 7 game series and ended up winning that series. And we all know WHO that team was.  ;)

definitely not the move I would have made. but then again I wouldn't have pinch hit Nunez for Devers the other night either.

Cora has had the "go for the jugular" mentality all season. I hope this pays off.

Maybe he's thinking with the righty Porcello on the mound that Roberts is gonna have an all lefty lineup and JD won't see much action in left  😉

Someone has to sit. Can't be Betts.
If Martinez has a tender ankle - certainly can't sit JBJ (he can cover too much ground).

As I said in the other thread - more surprising to me is Moreland batting in the 3rd hole.
I guess his hamstring is better.

The lineup I saw posted for the LAD's has three lefties batting in the #1,3, and 5 holes, plus a switch hitter

JBJ leaves 15 minutes early on a steal, Vasqy gets a single on a ball that rolls to wall. JBJ might have scored, but definitely should have been 2 on 2 out with pretty ricky bunting.

can't make base running errors like that in the world series

Good Lord - this is going to be a costly loss for the Sox - if they can't figure out how to get some runs.
Eovaldi has now thrown 70+ pitches.
Puts Boston in bad shape for Game 4.

Cora scewed up pinch hitting Benintendi in the 9th.
No Benny, no JD, no Devers for most of the extra innings.
