Another year, another World Series celebration at Dodgers Stadium by a team that wasn't the Dodgers.
It didn't last long as Kershaw gave up a two-run home run in the top of the first inning, and the Red Sox took a lead they would never give back.
Pearce struck again in the eighth with another homer before pitcher Chris Sale closed off the game in the following inning.
Alex Cora became the seventh different manager to lead the Red Sox to a World Championship. Only the Yankees (27) and Cardinals (11) have been more successful, and Boston is now tied for third with the Athletics.
All that stood between the Red Sox and a sweep was an 18-inning loss in Game 3, the longest World Series game ever. The other team to win more than Boston is the Seattle Mariners, who won 120 games before losing in the 2001 American League Championship Series.
Trump Agrees With then-Senator Obama's Illegal Immigration Assessment
However, Trump pointed out that his push for strict border enforcement is very similar to things that famous Democrats have said. Trump said that he is willing to deploy military to stop people from coming to the USA illegally. "Here's just one simple fact".
Following Game 4, Roberts said Hill had told him before the seventh inning to "keep an eye on me". A lot of people thought that we were going to go one way, and we signed Mitch, which I thought it was a great move right away. "You never know where the game will take you".
Price got the word from Cora coming off the field after Saturday's Game 4 win, and immediately shifted into his pre-start mentality.
A post-season that started with questions about his future in Boston ended with lefty David Price leading the way to a World Series trophy.
He had a rough go of it - 0 for 8 with an RBI (a groundout) - in his first two Major League Baseball games before breaking out in game one of an April 28 doubleheader at Kansas City.
Kershaw allowed four runs and seven hits - three of them homers - in seven innings.
While he certainly made it look easy from April to October, Cora said that was not always the case.
Powerball numbers drawn for $750M jackpot
No one has won the Powerball jackpot since August 11, when a man from Staten Island, New York, won $245.6 million. The drawing comes on the heels of a near-record $1.5 billion Mega Millions drawing earlier this week.
Boston went 7-1 on the road in the postseason and 10-0 overall when scoring first.
Pearce is headed to free agency, but after the thump he provided against left-handed pitching this year, the Red Sox should be hot on his trail. They will have to decide what to do with Clayton Kershaw-the ace whose diminished fastball velocity now almost matches that of his slider-particularly if Kershaw opts out of the two years and $65 million remaining on his contract. "I think we were extremely fortunate to get him at the time that we did".
This was the sixth consecutive year the Dodgers were in the postseason, but it wasn't quite as straightforward to get back to this point. Reliever Joe Kelly (4.39 ERA in regular season) pitched in all five games, throwing six scoreless innings, with 10 strikeouts.
"I can't say enough about what Clayton - what our guys did", manager Dave Roberts said. "But the World Series is a bucket-list thing".
This isn't the first time the Red Sox have taken a not-so-subtle dig at the Bombers in the postseason.
