On Oct. 28, 2018, the Boston Red Sox won the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Red Sox didn’t have the easiest time winning the World Series. The Red Sox beat the New York Yankees in four games, beat the Houston Astros in five games, and then beat the Dodgers in five to win the World Series. The Red Sox had many players struggle, but many players thrived as well. The main player who struggled at first, but then came back clutch, was David Price. Price, who was born in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and went to Vanderbilt University, struggled in his first game against the Yankees with only 1.2 innings pitched, three hits against, three runs against, two walks, and three earned runs. After this game, Price played lights out and won the Red Sox some crucial games. Another player who struggled was Mookie Betts, who was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and committed to University of Tennessee Knoxville, but never attended. Betts was a stand-out player on defense and contact hitting, but only had one home run in the entirety of the playoffs. The players who really stepped up were Steve Pearce, Nathan Eovaldi, and J.D. Martinez. Steve Pearce was clutch in the World Series with multiple winning and tying RBIs. Eovaldi was also clutch on the mound for the Red Sox with a 1.61 ERA. Then J.D. Martinez, who was great all year, helped the Red Sox get runs with three home runs and 14 RBIs. As a Red Sox fan, it was great to see the team win the World Series. They beat the Yankees in the first round, which is all that really matters. The Boston Red Sox are your 2018 World Series champions!
