brilliant 2018 season on Sunday night with a 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles
Dodgers to claim the ninth World Series title in franchise history.The Red Sox
wasted no time getting on the scoreboard in Game 5 Jason

, as Steve Pearce took Clayton Kershaw deep for a
two-run home run in the top of the first.David Freese trimmed the deficit to 2-1
with a leadoff home run for the Dodgers, but that was all the offense they could
muster as David Price allowed just two more hits over seven innings to pick up
his second victory of the series.Solo home runs from Mookie Betts in the sixth,
J.D. Martinez in the seventh and another shot from Pearce in the eighth extended
the lead to 5-1. Joe Kelly and Chris Sale slammed the door by striking out the
side in the eighth and ninth, respectively.It's the fourth World Series title
since 2004 for the Red Sox, who won an MLB-best 108 games during the regular
season before posting an 11-3 record in October.Here was the scene on the field
after Sale struck out Manny Machado for the final out:Boston Red Sox

postseason as he battled a stomach issue, but the adrenaline was clearly pumping
in the ninth, and his slider was absolutely filthy.The World SeriesMVP honors
went to Pearce, who went 4-for-12 with a double, three home runs and eight RBI
in five games.Boston Red Sox RedSoxM-V-Pearce! M-V-Pearce! M-V-Pearce!

Pearce told reporters. "You never know where the game will take you. And I've
gone through a lot in my life or in my career to be here, and I couldn't be more
thankful."The 35-year-old was acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays on June 28,
and he posted an excellent 141 OPS+ with seven home runs and 26 RBI in 50 games
with the team.A number of players from the Boston Celtics took to Twitter to
congratulate the newly minted champs:Jaylen Brown FCHWPOLETS GOOOO RedSox!!!!!!

B67motpiXgKey pieces such as Craig Kimbrel, Nathan Eovaldi andPearce will reach
free agency this offseason, so the Red Sox have some work to do from a roster
standpoint, but this team is well-positioned to make a serious push to defend
their title.For now, the celebration continues. The Baltimore Orioles aren't
bringing back manager Buck Showalter after聽the team experienced one of the worst
seasons in the history of Major League Baseball, according to Ken Rosenthal of
The Athletic.Buck Showalter will not be back with the #Orioles in any
capacity http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-drew-butera-jersey ,
sources tell The Athletic.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) October 3, 2018Two
years after guiding the Orioles to an AL Wild Card berth, Showalter's group
finished with a pathetic 47-115 record. It was the worst season in Baltimore's
history, and the first time they registered 100-plus losses since 1988.The 2018
season was filled with a ton of embarrassing feats. The Orioles became the first
team since the 2003 Detroit Tigers that failed to win a minimum of 50 games.

the Los Angeles Dodgers.advertisingOn top of that, slugger Chris Davis appeared
in 128 games and finished with a .168 batting average, the worst in MLB history
for qualified hitters. He had a -3.2 WAR, which is almost impossible for any
player to register in this era of baseball. Credit: Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY
SportsShowalter guided the Orioles to a surprise playoff appearance in 2012,
when they finished with a 93-69 record. It was their first trip to the playoffs
in 15 years, but the O's were dispatched by the New York Yankees in five
games.Two years later, Showalter led the Orioles to 96 wins and the AL East
division crown. The Orioles swept the Detroit Tigers in the ALDS to reach the
ALCS http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-whit-merrifield-jersey ,
but the Kansas City Royals swept Showalter's group. However, he was named 2014
AL Manager of the Year.advertisingShowalter's tenure in Baltimore ends with a
record of 669-684, but keep in mind that he led them to four winning seasons and
three playoff appearances. Showalter brought new life into a long-time losing
organization, but the Orioles had no choice but to start making changes after a
very, very porous season where nothing went right.But given the three AL Manager
of the Year awards on his resume, Showalter should earn consideration for other
managerial openings. He joins John Gibbons (Toronto), Jeff Banister (Texas), and
Paul Molitor (Minnesota), as 2018 managers who were let go by their respective
teams.advertising
