Boston Red Sox Return to Fenway Park With World Series Trophy

But the biggest boppers at the top of Boston's lineup?

The much-maligned David Price completed his redemption tour in dominant fashion, tossing seven-plus innings of one-run ball while striking out five. Chris Taylor flied out and Austin Barnes struck out.

After losing to Houston in Game 7 past year by the same 5-1 score, the Dodgers became the first team ousted on its home field in consecutive World Series since the New York Giants by the New York Yankees at the Polo Grounds in 1936 and '37.

Puig then crushed a 92 miles per hour fastball deep into the left-field bleachers, raising his arms in triumph while Rodriguez slammed down his glove in pure frustration.

The Dodgers, who were beaten by the Houston Astros in last season's World Series, hit back right away when David Freese crushed a leadoff homer to get Los Angeles on the scoreboard.

Los Angeles trails 3-1 in the best-of-seven series.

That was quick! Steve Pearce tags Clayton Kershaw for a home run and it's already 2-0 Boston. And to be here right now is a dream come true, " Pearce said.

Kershaw took off his glove and showed little emotion as Pearce finished his trot.

Families, friends and team employees stayed on the field at Dodger Stadium for a couple of hours after the final out, soaking in the afterglow. Some videos showed the team singing Frank Sinatra's New York, New York and Tupac's California Love in the clubhouse.

Pearce is the first position player to win World Series MVP with 50 or fewer regular season games for the winning team in his career. "Let's celebrate like champions". Only six teams have accomplished the feat in the best-of-seven World Series, although the Chicago Cubs did it just two years ago.

"I'm not hopeless, I'm hopeful", Morales said. I think we've all been waiting for this. The Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians are at 10/1 to win the World Series.

Though some fans were enjoying their first championship parade, many others, like 23-year-old Derek Safford, were veterans. He's always had a reputation as a solid hitter, although mostly against left-handed pitchers.

The Red Sox made one change to their lineup: Rafael Devers starts at third base instead of Eduardo Nunez. Solo homers by Mookie Betts in the sixth inning and J.D. Martinez in the seventh quieted the Los Angeles crowd.

Fans started cheering when the buses arrived and roared when catcher Christian Vazquez got off the second bus holding the trophy.
