On Aug. 10, he struck out three times and then hit a walkoff home run to win the game 1-0, the first time the White Sox ever won 1-0 on a walkoff home run.

Cora became the first manager from the island to guide a team to a championship.

Clayton Kershaw #22 of the Los Angeles Dodgers reacts during the first inning against the Boston Red Sox in Game Five of the 2018 World Series at Dodger Stadium on October 28, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. He then showed he was truly over what he called "the hump" with a strong six-inning outing and a win in Game 2 of the Series.

"I didn't say anything that anyone didn't know", Sale explained. I've got three days now to think about all that stuff before anything happens.

Price won his third consecutive postseason start, two in this World Series alone, after not earning a victory in any of his previous 11 playoff starts.

After defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-1, in Game 5, the Red Sox blared Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" inside their clubhouse, prompting a singalong among players as the champagne showers commenced.

"Prior to (removing Hill from the game), before the top of the seventh was going on, it was a long sixth for us". Palka was the first White Sox player with three triples in his first 20 career Major League Baseball games since Frank Thomas (who didn't hit his first home run until his 25th career game).

For Boston, starter David Price was brilliant.

That all came after he started Game 2 and pitched in relief in Game 3.

"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.
