No decision on Martinez in Red Sox lineup; Betts not at 2B

The Red Sox now lead 2-1 in the best-of-seven series, with Game 4 set for Saturday. The latter would be the more aggressive play, but the Red Sox can afford to play it safe knowing they'll be going back to Boston with a chance to win it all if need be. Cora offered no answers after Game 3, and fans and media alike still were in the dark roughly four hours before first pitch Saturday night. I feel behind 3-0 and I wasn't able to execute that last pitch. It was the longest game by time of game in postseason history.

Boston went ahead in the 13th when Brock Holt scored from second on a bad fielding exchange between Dodgers reliever Scott Alexander and second baseman Enrique Hernandez.

But the Dodgers, chasing their first World Series title in 30 years, needed a record 18 innings and a record seven hours 20 minutes to avoid being pushed into a 0-3 series hole from which only one team - the 2004 Red Sox in the American League Championship Series - have ever escaped.

Muncy drew a leadoff walk from Eovaldi, and moved to second when Nunez - yes, him again - tumbled into the stands after catching a foul pop. Max Muncy hit a ground-rule double with two outs in the tenth inning, only for Machado to pop up and strand him in scoring position.

"Had the last out in my glove and couldn't get it over there". But second baseman Ian Kinsler's wild throw on a two-out grounder by Yasiel Puig in the 13th let Los Angeles score the tying run.

We got the "Machete" star as he was leaving the Stadium, and the way Danny sees it. he got 2 games for the price of 1.

So yeah, scoring first is the No. 1 ingredient in their recipe to success.

Buehler, who a year ago watched Game Two of the World Series between Los Angeles and the Houston Astros from the Dodgers Stadium stands, had a much different view on Friday and was the man in the spotlight tossing seven shutout innings.

Primo's Donuts has donuts complete with the Dodgers' logo for those looking for a sweet treat to match a sweet victory.

"There's some guys that we wanted to stay away from today, namely (Ryan) Madson, Julio (Urias)", Roberts said.

With the Red Sox least effective starter on the hill, L.A. managed just a solo home run from Joc Pederson on a flat changeup.

"We didn't have any more players, so I didn't have any choice", he said after the game. "But we're ready to come back tomorrow". "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".
