It seemed as if the game would go on forever. The Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers kept battling into the early hours of Saturday morning.Finally , Max Muncy put an end to the drama. He homered in the bottom of the 18th inning, driving a pitch from Boston relief pitcher Nathan Eovaldi over the left-field wall to end a seven-hour, 20-minute game. It was the longest game in World Series history, both in innings and time.The home run gave the Dodgers a 3-2 victory in Game 3, allowing Los Angeles to narrow the World Series gap to 2-1.Game 4 is scheduled to start at 8:09 p.m. ET on Saturday and will be televised by Fox.Joc Pederson homered in the third inning to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead Friday, and Jackie Bradley Jr. belted a tying home run in the eighth inning.The Red Sox took the lead in the 13th inning on a walk by Brock Holt, a stolen base and infield hit by Eduardo Nunez. The Dodgers ended up tying it with two outs in the bottom of the inning on an infield hit by Yasiel Puig and a poor throw by Ian Kinsler as he attempted nail Puig.Kinsler had lost his balance after making the pick up, and Puig appeared to be no more than halfway down the line. If he had steadied himself, it seemed that Kinsler had the time to throw Puig out. But it didn't work out that way.The Dodgers will attempt to level the series with Rich Hill likely on the mound, but Red Sox manager Alex Cora was not ready to announce his starter after the game."How do you say it," Cora said. "TBA."As Cora's postgame press conference wore on, he said "it most likely will be a lefty."Nathan Eovaldi kept the Red Sox in Game 3 with his excellent relief pitching.Jae C. Hong/Associated PressEovaldi pitched remarkably in relief, coming in at the start of the 12th inning and throwing 97 pitches and keeping the Red Sox in the game. "Nate was unbelievable tonight," Cora said. "You can't ask for more of an effort than he gave tonight. He was basically perfect."Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was equally effusive about Eovaldi. "Even though he did it to us, Eovaldi was remarkable," Roberts said. "He was unbelievable for that team."As good as Eovaldi was to finish the game, Los Angeles starter Walker Buehler was equally impressive at the start of the game. He pitched seven scoreless innings, giving up two hits and striking out seven without allowing a base on balls.The likely starter for Boston seems to be either Game 1 starter Chris Sale or Eduardo Rodriguez. Sale would be pitching on three days' rest, and that could be risky because he has struggled with shoulder issues in the second half of the season.Rodriguez pitched to just one batter Friday night, and he has been limited in the postseason. However, Rodriguez was 13-5 in the regular season with a 3.82 earned-run average, and he struck out 146 hitters in 129.2 innings.Drew Pomeranz, who was added to the roster prior to the World Series Marcell Ozuna Jersey , could also have a chance to start for the Red Sox.SportsCenter SportsCenterMax Muncy almost had a walk-off in the 15th.Three innings later, he had one for real. #SCtop10 FCY3QG0xIDPredictionThe Game 3 loss seemed quite costly for the Red Sox. While they still lead in the World Series, Cora used Rick Porcello to start the game, and he pitched 4.2 innings. Game 2 starter David Price pitched 0.2 innings, and Eovaldi pitched for more than six.Cora has to scramble to find a starter for Game 4, and his bullpen is depleted. Meanwhile, Rich Hill should be the Dodgers starter, although the team tweeted that Saturday night's starter was still to be determined..The pendulum was swinging toward the Red Sox after the first two games, but it appears to be going toward the Dodgers following Friday's marathon.Look for Los Angeles to win Game 4 and square this suddenly remarkable World Series. The Tigers scored a season-high nine runs en route to a chaotic win against their divisional rival."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Detroit Tigers AnalysisDetroit Tigers Prospect NotebookDetroit Tigers Game ThreadsDetroit Tigers NewsDetroit Tigers PodcastsDetroit Tigers RecapsTigers 9, White Sox 7: DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACKNew,26commentsThe Tigers scored a season-high nine runs en route to a chaotic win against their divisional rival.EDTShareTweetShareShareTigers 9, White Sox 7: DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACKRick Osentoski-USA TODAY SportsToday, the Detroit Tigers struggled immensely on the mound and defensively, allowing seven runs to their divisional rival White Sox. Of course, this team never ceases to entertain, so they scored nine runs of their own despite entering the day with the worst team slugging percentage in all of baseball. Tigers win, 9-7.Surprisingly, this game was not very exciting for the first five innings, so let’s start there. Tyson Ross got the first eight batters out before allowing a single to Ryan Cordell in the third inning, but didn’t get into any legitimate trouble until the fifth inning, when he allowed one run after back-to-back-to-back singles from Tim Anderson, Wellington Castillo, and Yolmer Sanchez.Ivan Nova Miles Mikolas Jersey , meanwhile, found himself in jam after jam early in this game. In the first inning, Nova got Josh Harrison and Nicholas Castellanos out before allowing a two-out double to Miguel Cabrera (happy birthday, Miguel!). He quickly got his way out of that jam, however, by striking out Niko Goodrum. In the second inning, Nova once again got two quick outs but then allowed a single to Gordon Beckham (who entered the day with zero singles to date this season) and a double to Grayson Greiner to make the game 1-0. In the third, Nova once again allowed a runner to reach scoring position, as Castellanos hit a one out line-drive double, but Nova once again wiggled out of the jam. From there, Gordon Beckham knocked his second single of the season in the fourth and stole second base to set up Grayson Greiner for his second RBI of the day, this time a single.Now to the good stuff. The sixth inning looked like it would be an easy inning for Tyson Ross: after all, he got two quick outs by striking out Yoan Moncada and making Jose Abreu fly out. Unfortunately for Ross, a Niko Goodrum error at first base extended the inning, and former top prospect Eloy Jimenez promptly proceeded to knock his third career major league home run to give the White Sox a 3-2 lead. The chaos continued from there: Tim Anderson singled then stole second base, making it to third on a throwing error from Grayson Greiner. He then scored due to a third fielding error, this one from Gordon Beckham. 4-2 White Sox. Yolmer Sanchez flew out to end the inning.Of course, the Tigers fought back in the bottom half of the inning. Niko Goodrum, Jeimer Candelario, and Dustin Peterson teamed up for back-to-back-to-back singles to tie the game 4-4 (Goodrum scored and Candelario advanced to second on a wild pitch by Nova). Unfortunately, Ron Gardenhire left Tyson Ross in one batter too long, as Ryan Cordell untied the game with a solo shot, his third career home run , to start the seventh.But of course, the Tigers fought back again in the bottom half of the inning. Kelvin Herrera hit JaCoby Jones to start the inning and a Nicholas Castellanos double scored him, with Castellanos making it to third on the throw home. 5-5. Then, a Miguel Cabrera single scored Castellanos. 6-5. From there, Niko Goodrum knocked yet another double (advancing Cabrera to third), Jeimer Candelario was intentionally walked by Herrera, and Peterson hit into a force out that scored another run to give the Tigers a 7-5 lead. Peterson stole second base shortly after for his first career stolen base, but Herrera got Gordon Beckham out to end the inning immediately afterward. Then it was the White Sox turn. They fought back once again thanks to a Yonder Alonso double and a monster home run from Welington Castillo off of Victor Alc谩ntara— shout out to Grayson Greiner for calling for that slider. Alc谩ntara proceeded to load the bases before he was relieved by Drew VerHagen, who struck out Yoan Moncada in a crucial situation after Moncada worked a full count. Nevertheless, after the top of the eighth inning, the game was knotted up 7-7.But of course (noticing a pattern?), the Tigers fought back again in the bottom half of the inning! Carson Fulmer entered the game for the White Sox, and Grayson Greiner led off the inning with a single (his third hit of the game), and then JaCoby Jones was hit by a pitch for the third time in two days. Fulmer then proceeded to hit Josh Harrison with a pitch (he must have forgotten Harrison is batting .121 on the season) to load the bases with nobody out. From there, back-to-back sacrifice flies from Nicholas Castellanos and Miguel Cabrera gave the Tigers a 9-7 lead. From there, Shane Greene entered in the ninth inning and earned his ninth save in nine opportunities after, of course, Niko Goodrum ended the game with a diving basket catch.So, yeah. That game was a doozy. The wildest thing? The Tigers still didn’t hit a home run despite scoring nine runs and notching 14 hits. They also had four errors in this game. But guess what? They’re back to .500, baby.
