Mookie Betts lauded for feeding homeless after World Series Game 2 win

Right-handed pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, who shined in six innings of relief despite getting slapped with the loss, said Kinsler apologized to him for his mistake.

Until the 97th pitch of an outing that was among the most unusual in World Series history, until the 561st pitch of an epic endurance test that sprawled across the night for 18 innings, he finally got beat.

The Red Sox had taken advantage of an errant toss by Dodgers reliever Scott Alexander to take a 2-1 lead, with Brock Holt drawing a leadoff walk and coming around to score thanks to an eventful sequence by Eduardo Nunez, who ended up on the ground in pain at home and at first. Puig reach first on a wild throw by second baseman Ian Kinsler that allowed Max Muncy to score from second base.

Walker Buehler, a 24-year-old rookie right-hander, will be the center of attention when he starts Game 3 for the Dodgers in Friday's late-afternoon twilight against Rick Porcello. "I feel awful. I feel bad for Nate [Eovaldi]".

Fresh from starting and winning on Wednesday night at Fenway Park, lefty David Price came out of the Red Sox bullpen to pitch the ninth.

"There's a lot of stuff that went on, but it's simple: Keep the big boy in left field and have Jackie play left-center and center field, help (Martinez) out", Cora said.

The Dodgers were also closing in on victory at one point.

That said, the Red Sox feel like the team that will be at a disadvantage.

At the time of Max Muncy's game-ending solo home run in the 18th inning, Game 3 officially set the record at seven hours, 20 minutes total.

"That's why I always said, we're in a good place right now baseball-wise".

Game 3 was the 12th World Series game to go 12 innings and the fourth World Series Game to go 14 innings, CBS Sports reports.

"It's a little sore, but I feel fine", Nunez said afterward.

According to Baseball-Reference, Friday's 18-inning contest surpassed Game 2 of the 2014 National League Championship Series, played by the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants.

One of the craziest games in World Series history would not have been as insane if not for the most inexplicable moment of a never-ending night. No one was surprised this game took a long time.

At 36, Kinsler's hardly the player he was in his prime, but the former Gold Glover has always been one of the league's best defenders at second base. If Bradley hadn't hit a home run to tie the game in the top of the eighth, this game had 1-0 written all over it.

"Standing room for Game 6 at least $700", Mullarkey said.
