He emerged as baseball's leading heel.

Through his first 20 games, he was hitting.284/.304/.567 with three home runs, but what was more surprising was that he also had three triples.

At least some of his Dodgers' teammates took exception to his act, but what were they going to do? "I understand you're watching the World Series, but there was a huge tragedy that happened and people will say what they want to say". You've played that card extremely well.

This was the second straight year that the Dodgers made a trade in July that didn't yield the desired results.

The 18-inning saga ended with the Dodgers' only win of the series. Pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland stunned the Dodgers with a three-run home run in the seventh that started Boston's comeback in Game 4. The right-hander won his starts in the first two rounds of the playoffs but was very bad in his two World Series starts, allowing nine runs (eight earned) in 3 1/3 innings. He was close. Four days later, with nine strikeouts in six shutout innings to finish off Houston, he helped the Red Sox to the pennant.

Pitcher David Price and batter Steve Pearce were the match-winners on the night, with Pearce hitting two home runs to complete a one-sided World Series.

For a long time, Price had been known for his playoff shortcomings, having never won a game. But if that's how you're looking at the Dodgers' season, you're looking at it wrong.

This one will mean a whole lot more.

While Price rewrote his own October legacy, Kershaw was unable to do the same as he fell to 1-4 with a 6.06 ERA in postseason elimination games. The Dodgers did rally for a pair of runs in the bottom of the ninth.

"He's incredible in the clubhouse, and obviously he's an incredible talent", said starter Rich Hill. I knew it was challenging with everything that goes on there. "You never know where the game will take you", Pearce told reporters. The Red Sox won 108 games this season, 16 more than LA.

"All year when it didn't look so good, our guys stuck together, stayed the course and believed in one another and put ourselves in a chance to win a championship", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.

Pearce added the coup de grace in the eighth, touching up Pedro Baez with one final swing. By the time Kenley Jansen stopped that streak with a scoreless top of the ninth, it was too late.

Price said winning the World Series was the whole reason he came to Boston.

"This was a tough one for us tonight, it really was", Kershaw, who now will need to decide if he will exercise the opt-out clause in his contract, said. "They can win a few more". They will have to decide whether to bring Roberts back, after consecutive failures to break the club's thirty-year streak without a title. "That's what our team is about we show up every single day".
