Notes on the 3rd Game of the 2018 World Series

Boston’s 1-4 hitters were 0-28 with two walks. The Dodgers had runners on in 5 of the extra innings; the Sox had runners on in 6 of the extra innings. And, the Dodgers used 1 pitcher to get through the 7th, while Boston used 4. But then LA used 4 pitchers for their last 5 2/3rds innings, while Eovaldi was pitching the last 6+ innings.

Watching the game, in extras the Dodgers especially were swinging big, swinging for the homer, I thought, and it did wind up winning the game for them. It would’ve been nicer if Muncy had won it in the 15th. By the 18th, there was such a sense of weariness, almost, that it was hard to get extremely excited about Muncy’s homer. Maeda’s play to get the runner at third was the defensive gem of extra innings. That play seemed to snap Maeda on track and, given how things turned out, put LA on the path to win.
