Read What Dodgers Players Said About Return to World Series
10/21/2018 4:11am

The Los Angeles Dodgers are headed back to the World Series for the second consecutive season after dispatching of the Milwaukee Brewers in seven games.After the game, we caught up with many of the teams players and coaches as they reflected back on the season, celebrated their monumental achievement, and looked ahead to the World Series against the Red Sox on Tuesday night.Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts:Roberts on advancing to the World Series for the second straight season:I cant say enough about our players, our coaches, the front office and most importantly the fans. They supported us through thick and thin and we fed off their support.Roberts on winning the NL pennant:Every single person has their finger prints on this season and for us, our goal is to bring a championship back to Los Angeles. Our fans deserve it. We deserve it, and thats our only goal.Roberts on winning Game 7 of the NLCS:Chris Taylor, Yasiel Puig, Walker Buehler, everyone has got their fingerprints on this game and this season and my hats off to everyone over there Brewers.Roberts on Yasiel Puigs home run that put the Dodgers ahead by four runs:I was praying like heck it had enough backspin to get out of here. Everyone was pulling for Yasiel.Roberts on pulling Buehler, pitching Kenley Jansen in the 7th and Clayton Kershaw in the 9th:Ryan Madson gave us some good innings. I just felt right there, Kenley Jansen could bridge that gap and I wanted this moment to be for Clayton Kershaw.Roberts via ASAP Sports on getting back to the World Series:Im just so proud of our guys for enduring this roller coaster of a season. A lot of people had their hand in this. And for us to just continue to lean on each other, depend on one another and stay the course, it says a lot about the focus, the toughness of this team. Coaches, training staff, baseball ops, scouts, and so many people got us to this point. So Im just really proud of this entire organization and look forward to giving ourselves a chance to bring the championship back to Los Angeles.Roberts via ASAP Sports on Chris Taylors catch:I think thats probably it. You get the MVP in Christian Yelich and hes competing and Julio Urias leaves a pitch up with two strikes and Yelich puts a really good swing on it. At that point in time I thought the game was tied. But CT Chris Taylor gets a great break on the ball, and really a game-saving play. Once the game is tied anything can happen. The momentum shifts. But that was certainly a signature play at the time.Roberts via ASAP Sports on returning to Boston for the World Series:Im looking forward to going back to Fenway. Obviously for me personally I have a lot of fond memories of the Red Sox and Fenway Park. To be wearing another uniform going in there playing for a World Series Championship is going to be special for me. But, yeah, I think that the fans -- its great for baseball. Two storied franchises going head-to-head. Its going to be a great series.Dodgers Pitching Coach Rich Honeycutt:Honeycutt on how the bullpen performed:You cant say enough about these guys all year they battled. Thank goodness we were deep enough to get through some injuries, but now we have some guys healthy and every night they stepped up.Honeycutt on returning to the World Series:Doc Dave Roberts set the tone a couple years ago. We saw it when we went to Washington in 2016 NLDS. Team comes first. Everybody is about the team doing whatever it takes. From Rich Hill last night. Woody Alex Wood. Kenta Maeda. All of our starters doing whatever it takes to help us win and you saw it again with Kersh Clayton Kershaw tonight.Dodgers Utility Player Chris Taylor:Taylor on his leaping catch in the fifth inning:I knew it was in the gap and I was just trying to run hard and get to the spot. I had to change my route and go back towards the fence a little bit. Im just glad I caught it.Taylor on returning to the World Series:It feels just as sweet as it did last year. Unbelievable. Its been a long road for us and it feels good to get another opportunity. Hopefully, well come out on top this time.Dodgers outfielder and NLCS MVP Cody Bellinger:Bellinger on his second inning home run:I was looking for a pitch up, two strikes, just trying to put a good swing on it, and luckily it went out of there.Bellinger on playing the Red Sox in the World Series:Thats going to be a pretty special series.Bellinger on advancing to the World Series in each of his first two season:Its a blessing to be a part of this team. I had a lot of guys tell me its not this easy, so Im enjoying this 100 percent.Bellinger on Chris Taylors fifth inning catch:I think the most important part of the game today was CTs catch in left field. That definitely changed the whole game for us.Dodgers Outfielder Yasiel Puig:Puig on his three-run home run in Game 7:I never expected that ball to be a home run I was so excited because there was two people on base. Thank God that ball kept going and it was a home run.Puig on playing the Boston Red Sox in the World Series:Its an amazing team. The best team in the AL American League and the best team in baseball with 108 wins. But now, theyre going to face us and the best team is going to win. I still feel that way about Dodgers winning, but you never know. Ive never played in Boston before. Its going to be cold.Dodgers Game 7 Starting Pitcher Walker Buehler:Buehler on if he had nerves before his start:There has to be. I think thats the nature of the beast. Third time third postseason start is the charm and this being my third time, I think that helped for sure.Buehler on how he felt he pitched:I feel good with it. This one worked out a little better than earlier in the series.Buehler on if he was okay coming out of the game in the fifth inning:Were 25-men deep and thats how you win in the World Series.Buehler on what its like going to the World Series:Thats the expectation here every year, obviously its a little more special for me never being there, but we hope to do this a few more times.Buehler on Chris Taylors fifth inning catch:The Taylor catch was unbelievable. I dont know many people who can play shortstop to start the season and then go to the outfield and make that catch.Dodgers Closer Kenley Jansen:Jansen on the season as a whole and returning to the World Series:We all stick together. We never quit. We had one goal in mind and we fell short last year. We just kept playing. JT Justin Turner went down. Kersh Clayton Kershaw went done. Me included went down. A lot of guys went down, but everybody had their fingerprints on this and we never quit and here we are celebrating.Jansen on entering the game in the seventh inning and not pitching the ninth:Before the game Doc had a conversation with me and told me they might go the same route as they did in 2016 NLDS against Washington Nationals. It doesnt matter if Im closing or not, just put me in the game when you need me. He brought me in in the seventh I got my job done, Kersh Kershaw picked me up and here we are celebrating.Jansen on looking ahead to the matchup with the Boston Red Sox:Play 27 outs. Thats the best team in the game right now. We respect that, but we know that were good. We have to go out there and compete and try and get that championship.Dodgers Catcher Austin Barnes:Barnes on how his season went as a whole and getting back to World Series:Its an awesome feeling. This whole year was full of adversity. We were a third place team in September and we never lost faith in us and we want to thank the fans for never losing faith in us either. It was an up and down ride, but we got back and hopefully were going to win it this year.Barnes on Game 7 and how he was able to take over as starting catcher for most of the NLCS:Personally I didnt feel great at the plate, but to contribute with my defense and help this team try and win and get to the World Series is all you can ask for.Barnes on how Walker Buehler looked:His stuff is unbelievable. Hes been pitching big games for us all year. From 163 to Game 7 tonight. All of our starters pitched big games for us.Dodgers Third Baseman Justin Turner:Turner on returning to the World Series:This is an unbelievable feeling to be standing here right now. At one point 10 games under .500, at one point in third place in the division in September. Weve played with our backs against the wall all season, here we were again tonight, Game 7 backs against the wall again and we found a way to get it done.Turner on what he and the team learned from being in a Game 7 in the World Series last season:Win every pitch and win every inning. We wanted to get to him Chacin early. We knew they were going to run to their bullpen right away. We got behind when Christian Yelich hit that solo homer in the first, but we grinded, we saw their bullpen guys in all seven games. We got some big swings by Belli Bellinger and by Puig to give us a cushion.Dodgers Shortstop Manny Machado:Machado on going to the World Series for the first time:This is awesome. Theres no better feeling than coming here and winning. We had this goal since I got here and we finally made it here.Machado on what his emotions are after winning Game 7:It feels awesome. Theres no better feeling than winning the pennant. Weve worked hard for his. Weve got four more games left.Machado on the NLCS series with the Brewers and how the Milwaukee fans treated him:We never took anything for granted. We knew we were playing a very good ball club on the other side and it was going to be a grind. We did everything possible: we played the little game, we hit the longball, like we had all year, and were just happy we came out on top like always.Machado on his full count bunt in the second inning:You dont really want to know what I really want to say right now. Were trying to do anything to win. He quick pitched me so Im going to drop one down. I know it was a little ballsy but anything to win. It came out perfect because Belli Bellinger came up next and hit that big, big homer to put us on top. I knew Belly was due. He was due for something. I just needed to get on base for him and pass the baton.Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw:Kershaw on returning to the World Series:I appreciate these moments. Its pretty fun. You might never get to do it again. Its hard to take something like this for granted.Dodgers relief pitcher Alex Wood:Wood on winning the NLCS in seven games:It was a total team effort. Its been a really complete series when you put all the games together it was a lot of fun against a really good Milwaukee Brewers team. Thankfully we won Game 7 and will now get ready for the Red Sox here in a couple days.Wood on warming up three times, Kenley pitching the 7th and Kershaw closing:You never know whats going to happen in a Game 7. Kenley makes quick work of the inning he threw. Claytons got the ninth. Then I got up three different times, you never know whats going to happen so you just have to be ready for every minute of the game.Dodgers relief pitcher Ryan Madson:Madson on going back to the World Series:Im very lucky to be here and fortunate that they brought me over. I really appreciate it.Madson on pitching 1.2 scoreless innings of relief:I look around and see Kershaw is out there and Kenley, and they picked my name Its such an honor. I dont take it lightly. I put everything into every pitch. I take it one pitch at a time, I know its a clich, but thats what I do.Madson on watching Kershaw pitch the ninth inning:I dont think Ive ever had a better feeling. When you see Clayton Kershaw in the bullpen with 100 pitches under his belt and ready to go in to the game, I dont think theres a better feeling.Photo Credit: Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

Lakers, Rockets Brawl as Lebron Loses Home Opener
10/21/2018 1:37am

A fight erupted in the fourth quarter of LeBron James home debut with the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on Saturday, as Chris Paul, Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo were all ejected in a feisty contest that ultimately saw the Lakers fall 124-115 to the Houston Rockets.The Lakers may be 0-2, but they showed some fight--literally. LeBron James Says to Expect Greatness Ahead of Home Debut 498136121, CThe fight erupted after Ingram shoved James Harden, with Paul and Rondo getting into a heated discussion that boiled over into punches being thrown by Paul and Rondo. Ingram, who had already received a technical foul, decided to run into the scrum and deliver a punch of his own to guarantee his ejection. LeBron James Suffers Defeat in Lakers Debut 498136131, CThe Rockets led 109-108 when the fight broke out, with a shade over four minutes remaining in the game. The ensuing two technical free throws gave the Rockets a crucial three-point advantage, and Houston relied on Harden to outscore the Lakers 15-7 following the fight. Debut Day for LeBron James with the Lakers in Portland The night, though, started far more positive, with celebrities packing the stands and a crowd charged up during introductions. James and company faced the Houston Rockets two-headed monster of James Harden and Paul, with James making his highly anticipated regular season home debut dressed in LAs iconic gold jersey.James scored the Lakers first two points of the game, but the Lakers had already dug a seven-point hole before the 33-year-old netted his first official basket at Staples Center for the home team.494568341, CThe first quarter laid the groundwork for Hardens big night, with the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player tabbing nine points in the opening 12 minutes before pouring in 14 points in the second quarter for a halftime total of 23 points. The Southern California native ended the night with 36 points to lead the pack.Thanks in part to contributions from Ingram, Josh Hart, Kyle Kuzma, Rondo and, of course, James, the Lakers nullified the eye-popping output provided by Paul and Harden early. Paul went into the break with 19 points, seven assists and four rebounds.Still, the Rockets never truly pulled away, and the two teams were tied eight times, with 14 lead changes in the first 24 minutes. The Rockets held a four-point edge at the break.James led the Lakers in scoring at the intermission with 11 points, three rebounds and three assists, while Rondo added nine points, four assists and three rebounds before the break.498114511, CThe third quarter continued the back-and-forth seesaw of the first half, with six lead changes in the penultimate quarter. Paul took the scoring lead from Harden momentarily, and the former LA Clippers point guard scored nine points in the period to lead all scorers with 28 points and eight assists with 12 minutes remaining in the contest.The Lakers, meanwhile, spread the scoring out and had six different players scoring in double figures before the end of the third quarter--led by James 18 points at that stage.For the second game in a row, an unlikely opponent off the bench caused damage to LAs hopes of getting its first victory of the 2018-19 season. While Nik Stauskas had killed the Lakers off the Blazers bench of Thursday, Gerald Green assumed that role for the Rockets.After three quarters, Green was 5-5 from the field for 13 points in 15 minutes off the Rockets bench.The fourth quarter featured the Rockets building a six-point lead almost immediately, but a flagrant foul on James Ennis III for wrapping his arm around Harts neck helped the Lakers cut the Rockers momentum on the scoreboard.Lakers coach Luke Walton pointed to that Flagrant 1 foul as possibly leading to the fight minutes later. Hart, after the game, said he thought that Ennis should have been ejected, and Walton said the same.At the five-minute mark, though, the Rockets only led by a single point, but then a basketball game turned into a fight. Paul was ejected from the game with 28 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds. Ingram hit the showers with 12 points, four rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes, while Rondo left the floor with 13 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds.Down the stretch, however, Harden managed to put the ball in the bucket and claim victory for the visitors. The MVP finished with 36 points, seven rebounds and five assists in the victory, while James ended his Lakers home debut with 24 points on 9-22 shooting from the field, five assists and five rebounds.Notes: Ball finished the night shooting 4-8 from three-point land and 14 points to lead all bench scorers on both teams. With suspensions to Rondo and Ingram likely, Ball should slot into the starting lineup.Photo Credit: Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.

Dodgers Celebrate NLCS Win
10/21/2018 1:11am

The Dodgers are headed to the World Series for the second time in a row. They celebrated in the locker room after their win against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018.

Dodgers Beat Brewers to Advance to 2nd Straight World Series
10/21/2018 1:27am

The Dodgers are going back to the World Series.Christian Yelich hit a first inning homer to give Milwaukee the lead, but the Dodgers responded with home runs by Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig as they beat the Brewers, 5-1, to win the National League Championship Series four games to three.Ahead of the winner-take-all Game 7, I wrote that whichever team took a two-to-three run lead would advance to the World Series. As such, when a precious lead is achieved in these do-or-die games, everything else dissolves and as the world appears to steadily slow on its axis, the arduous counting of outs begins.Saturday morning started with the Dodgers waking up from the nightmares of a Game 7 loss at the hands of the Houston Astros in last years World Series.However, the sun would rise, a new day would come, and the opportunity to erase and exorcise some of those demons was at hand.27 outs left.After a scoreless first inning from Milwaukee starter Jhoulys Chacin, Yelich put the Brewers in front when he turned on a 98.5MPH fastball from rookie Walker Buehler for a solo shot.498125321, CYelich clipped me, said Buehler of the homer. Its a decent pitch. Its hard to hit that ball there. Thats why hes a good player.It was the second home run of the postseason from the presumed NL MVP, and it sent the sellout crowd at Miller Park into a frenzy as Milwaukee was seeking just their second ever World Series appearance, and first since moving to the National League in 1998.Milwaukees vaunted bullpen was ready and waiting, so as the Dodgers headed to the plate in the top half of the second inning, they knew they needed to answer the bell and silence the crowd.24 outs left.Similar to a WWE wrestling villain, Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado led off the second inning to a chorus of boos that drowned out any and all thoughts from players, to fans, to writers on deadline in the press box.Just days earlier, when asked why he didnt run out a groundball to first base in Game 2 of the series, Machado toldFox Sports reporterKen Rosenthal, I dont hustle. Its not in my personality. Im not the type of player thats going to be Johnny Hustle.Whether or not Machado becomes the second coming of Pete Rose Charlie Hustle not Johnny, is yet to be seen, but Machado did do his best impression of the Cincinnati Reds legend when he took everyone by surprise by laying down a full count bunt for an infield single.498125201, CWere trying to do anything to win, said Machado between champagne showers in the clubhouse following the win. He quick-pitched me, so Im going to drop one down. I know it was a little ballsy, but anything to win.Manny Hustle went from home to first in 3.96 seconds on the bunt single, the fastest he was clocked making that trip all season long.Not only did Machado wisely play small ball to get something going, but also the move paid dividends when Bellinger followed with a 424-foot home run that put the Dodgers in front, 2-1.498125251, CI was looking for a pitch up, two strikes, just trying to put a good swing on it, and luckily it went out of there, said Bellinger who was named the MVP of the series. It felt great. I honestly couldnt do it without the guys around me supporting me the whole year it feels pretty special.Machado believed Bellinger was due, and was ectastic to be on base for the big blast.I knew Belly was due. He was due for something. I just needed to get on base for him and pass the baton, he said. It came out perfect because Belli came up next and hit that big big homer to put us on top.Bellingers blast was his first of the playoffs, and fourth of his career after he hit three home runs during his NL Rookie of the Year campaign during the 2017 regular and postseason.I know how lucky I am to go back to the World Series two years in a row and how hard it is, said Bellinger. So to be a part of this team is pretty special. With that said we still have four more to go.When Walker Buehler headed back to the mound for the bottom of the second inning, he was clinging to a slim one-run lead and needed to continue to throw zeroes in order to help his team reach the World Series.The stress and pressure alone is enough to turn any other 24-year-old into a deer in headlights, but not Buehler, not this rookie.Despite entering the game with a record of 0-1 and a 6.75 ERA in the postseason, Walker Buehler became just the third Dodger rookie to start a winner-take-all game in franchise history, joining Joe Black Game 7, 1952 World Series vs. Yankees and Fernando Valenzuela Game 5, 1981 NLCS vs. Montreal Expos.After the home run to Yelich, Buehler was unflappable, surrendering just the one run, on six hits with no walks and seven strikeouts in 4 and 2/3 outstanding innings.I just tried to be myself and be a little more creative than I had been and it worked out for us, said Buehler of his start. This one worked out a little better than earlier in the series.Buehler exited the game with two outs and the tying run on second base in the bottom of the fifth inning. Julio Urias came on in relief to face Yelich who crushed a 94MPH fastball to left field where Chris Taylor who started the game at second base made a leaping catch, falling into the warning track to keep the Dodgers in the lead.498126521, CYou could feel the tension in the fans. The tying run on second...it was all built up, and it was so loud in the outfield that communicating with Bellinger was difficult, said Taylor of his game-changing grab. I knew it was in the gap and I was just trying to run hard and get to the spot. I had to change my route and go back towards the fence a little bit. I was just happy I made the play.So was everyone wearing Dodger blue.I think the most important part of the game today was CTs catch in left field, said Bellinger. That definitely changed the whole game for us.That Taylor catch was unbelievable, added Buehler. I dont know many people who can play shortstop to start the season, second base to start the game, and then go to the outfield and make that catch.12 outs left. Remember to breathe.As the Dodgers batted in the top of the sixth inning, with the worlds best reliever in Josh Hader now out of the game, each pitch seemed to take an eternity. Each runner on base, either a dire threat, or the hope of a city stuck in a 30-year title drought.Yasiel Puig stepped to the plate, with the knowledge and understanding of all this. Since joining the Dodgers in 2013, hes appeared in more postseason games than any other player in franchise history with 53. He knows how badly the City of Angels wants a championship he too yearns to host the Commissioners Trophy himself.Puig himself proclaimed the Dodgers would win the World Series last season. He did it again after they won their sixth consecutive NL West Division at the end of September. Accurately predicting the Dodgers would dispatch of the Atlanta Braves in the Division Series and eliminate the Milwaukee Brewers in the Leage Championship Series before advancing to the World Series and celebrating in the streets of Los Angeles in November.So with the weight of that prediction firmly on his strong shoulders, Puig stepped to the plate to stare down Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress, the same pitcher who surrendered the game-winning home run to Justin Turner in Game 2.Puig swung out of his shoes on a 95MPH fastball to start the at-bat, looked at another for a ball, and then crushed an 83MPH curveball for a line-drive, three-run homer that put the Dodgers ahead 5-1.498126831, CI never expected that ball to be a home run, admitted Puig after the game. I was so excited because there was two people on base. Thank God that ball kept going and it was a home run.It was easily the biggest home run in Puigs six-year career, and it sent the crowd from a rabid Miller Park mob, into a silent study hall, and put the Dodgers on the precipice of their 11th World Series appearance in franchise history.Nine, eight, seven each out felt like a life-or-death proposition. Each reliever out of the Dodgers bullpen that recorded an out felt the collective exhale of Dodger fans across the globe, and the progressive groans of the Brewers fans in the building.We had a hard time getting anything going today, more than one runner on a base in an inning, just couldnt get it going, said Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell. We werent able to put together rallies, multiple hits, and get things going. And credit to them for how they pitched tonight.The team that scored first in the series lost five of the seven games. The team that hit a leadoff home run in the final two games went on to lose the game. Baseball is random, that much we know, and whatever we thought we knew was turned on its head over the span of seven games.Six, five, fourKenley Jansen, an All-Star closer that had his season in doubt after an irregular heartbeat sent him to a Denver hospital in early August, mowed down Milwaukee hitters like he was a machine.Before the game, Doc had a conversation with me, and told me they might go the same route as they did in 2016 NLDS Game 5 against Washington Nationals, said Jansen. It doesnt matter if Im closing or not, just put me in the game when you need me. He brought me in in the seventh, and I got my job done. We just had to play all 27 outs.Three outs left.The constant reminder of the mantra, all hands on deck, was apparent throughout the game as the tantalizing possibility that the Dodgers three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw would ride out of the bullpen on his white horse and send the Dodgers back to the World Series as he did in Game of the NLCS in Chicago last year.Possibility became a reality when the 2014 MVP ran out of the bullpen to take the mound in the bottom of the ninth with the World Series on the line.I look around and I see Kershaw is out there and Kenley, I dont think Ive ever had a better feeling, said reliever Ryan Madson who pitched one and two-thirds of scoreless relief. When you see Clayton Kershaw in the bullpen with 100 pitches under his belt, and ready to go in to the game, I dont think theres a better feeling.Kershaw started the bottom of the ninth with 44,907 in attendance waiting and praying on bated breath. He faced second baseman Travis Shaw to start things off. Shaw grounded out to second base.Two outs left.Next up was Venezuelan powerhouse, Jesus Aguilar, who the night prior had three hits, two doubles and three RBI in Milwaukees Game 6 win. Kershaw struck him out on six pitches.One out left.Fate inevitably has a way of placing the exact people it wants in the moments that hold the most magnitude.So with the Dodgers so close to advancing to the pinnacle series of their sport, it was fitting that someone who once went to the World Series and lost, only to go back and win it the next year, would face the man on the mound hoping to do the exact same thing that the player he was now facing had done.Former Royals third baseman, and 2015 World Series Champion, Mike Moustakas, stepped into the box. He had singled against Kershaw in Game 1 of the series, but was 0-for-3 against him in Game 5. Kershaw dispatched of him on six pitches as well.I appreciate these moments, said Kershaw after he was mobbed by his teammates on the mound. Its pretty fun. You might never get to do it again. Its hard to take something like this for granted.In victory, the Dodgers became the first team since the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals to win a Game 7 of the LCS on the road, and won their 23rd NL pennant, tied with the Giants for the most in NL history.I cant say enough about our players, our coaches, the front office and most importantly the fans, said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. They supported us through thick and thin and we fed off their support.The Dodgers were once ten games below .500 on May 16, and last place in the West division, facing the looming possibility that they might not make the postseason, let alone return to the World Series.Thankfully, the hangover cleared, and the Dodgers returned to their dominant self, finishing 30 games above .500 from that point on, finishing with 92 wins and their sixth consecutive division title.This is an unbelievable feeling to be standing here right now, said Justin Turner, whose return to the lineup from a broken wrist suffered in spring training helped complete the turnaround. At one point 10 games under .500, at one point in third place in the division in September. Weve played with our backs against the wall all season, here we were again tonight, Game 7, backs against the wall again and we found a way to get it done.The role of underdog is unfamiliar for the Boys in Blue, they have always been the Goliath in the proverbial matchup with David. Nonetheless, when they face the Boston Red Sox 108 wins, and the best team in baseball all year long, they will be a substantial longshot.Its an amazing team. The best team in the AL and the best team in baseball with 108 wins, said Puig of the Red Sox. But now theyre going to face us, and the best team is going to win. Ive never played in Boston before, its going to be cold.It was 102 years ago the last time the Dodgers and Red Sox met in the World Series when Boston defeated the Brooklyn Dodgers behind a 14-inning outing by pitcher Babe Ruth in 1916.Im looking forward to going back to Fenway, said Roberts who like Red Sox manager Alex Cora has won both jerseys. Obviously for me personally I have a lot of fond memories of the Red Sox and Fenway Park. To be wearing another uniform going in there playing for a World Series Championship is going to be special for me. Its great for baseball. Two storied franchises going head-to-head. Its going to be a great series.The last time Los Angeles won the World Series was in 1988, where ironically, they were the dark horse against the 104-win Oakland Athletics,who hadthe bash brothers, the best starting rotation, and the best closer in the game.So maybe its not a coincidence that on this date, October 20th, 30 years ago, today, theDodgers defeated the As, 5-2, to win the 1988 World Series, the last championship they won.Heres hoping history repeats itself.Up Next:The World Series begins at Fenway Park in Boston on Tuesday night 5:09PM PT.If you cant view the embedded videos, click VIEW THE FULL MOBILE SITE at the bottom of this page.
