The Red Sox fell to the Dodgers, 3-2, in Game 3, a 7-hour-20-minute game, the longest in postseason history. A ridiculous amount, really, until Friday night melted into Saturday morning.

The game went 18 innings, the only World Series game ever to do so, clobbering the previous record of 14 innings shared by three different games.

Dodgers: After the game, the team said its starter would be announced later.

Evoking memories of Kirk Gibson's winning pinch-hit homer in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series, Muncy came within feet of ending it in the bottom of the 15th.

The first display of fortitude from Nunez came in the 13th inning when Dodgers' catcher Austin Barnes rolled up on Nunez's bad right ankle on a ball in the dirt. "I want to stay in, '" Eovaldi said from the field after the game.

"That was incredible", Cora said.

Nearly lost amid Muncy's late inning fireworks was a superb performance from Dodgers rookie starter Walker Buehler who pitched a seven inning gem. "Next thing I know they are laying out trays of food".

He's improving but also he needs to improve the defensive phase. "First of all, as I said after the match, we were wrong", Sarri said.

Gruden is basically blowing things up in Oakland, and there's a belief that Derek Carr could be the next big piece to go. The fourth-year receiver has 22 receptions for 280 yards and a touchdown in six games for the Raiders this season.

The speaker said he was seeking legal advice and would announce Saturday if he recognises Rajapakse as the new prime minister. Speaking to jubilant supporters outside his Colombo home, Rajapakse called on Wickremesinghe to step down.

Having already worked the eighth inning in each of the first two games, and having been set up to start Game 4 on Saturday, Eovaldi came out of the Sox bullpen for the 12th inning.

After two losses in chilly Boston battling Fenway Park's quirky features, the Dodgers were back home in warmer, friendlier surroundings trimming the Red Sox lead in the best-of-seven series to 2-1.

The Red Sox almost got another run in the 15th against Kenta Maeda, the Dodgers' sixth reliever.

One pitch later Nunez was sprinting down the line, beating out an errant toss to first by Dodgers pitcher Scott Alexander to allow Brock Holt to score the go-ahead run.

As they typically do after long games, Mookie Betts and his family got catered food and were hanging out at a friend's house in the Copley Square area. Whether they're facing Rich Hill (who was scheduled to be the Dodgers' starter until a potential late audible by the team) or whatever relievers Dave Roberts calls on, Boston obviously needs more from them.

Kinsler was hit with an error, as Dodgers infielder Max Muncy scored from second and Puig reached first.

So what about the Red Sox's Game 4 starter? When Muncy saw Nunez in the seats he tagged and went to second.
