The Boston Red Sox captured their ninth World Series title Sunday night taking Game 5 in LA , 5-1.
David Price was dominant as the Red Sox roughed up Clayton Kershaw and first baseman Steve Pearce was maned MVP
Pearce, a 35-year-old journeyman and career platoon player who had played with eight different clubs in his 12 year career can now add World Series MVP to his list of career highlights.
Pearce hit homers on Game 4 and again Sunday night in Game 5 making him only the third player in World Series history to hit home runs in back to back games.
The other two are guys you may have heard of, Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth.
The Red Sox are clear favorite to repeat as World Series champs in 2019 after a 108 win regular season and a roster stacked with young talent included likely AL MVP Mookie Betts.
