The Boston Red Sox have won their fourth World Series championship in 15 years, after a 5-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday night.
David Price delivered a dominant performance, giving up only three hits into the eight inning.
Boston’s offense was just as potent, with multiple players hitting it out of the park. Steve Pearce notched two home runs, his third in just two nights. Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez also homered off of Los Angeles ace Clayton Kershaw.
Alex Cora enters the record books as the first Puerto Rican manager to lead a team to a World Series title. Cora is the fifth first-year manager overall to win a title.
The one-sided World Series win comes after a historic 108-win regular season from Boston. It was a particularly bitter loss for Los Angeles, who lost game seven of last year’s World Series in the same ballpark.
