Steve Pearce, Mitch Moreland and Rafael Devers have pushed the Boston Red Sox within one victory of their fourth World Series title since 2004.
The trio combined to drive in eight runs over the final three innings of the Red Sox's 9-6 comeback win over the Dodgers in Los Angeles. The outcome gives the Sox a 3-1 lead in the Fall Classic and a chance to close it out Sunday at Dodger Stadium.
The Dodgers led 4-0 until Moreland came off the bench to belt a three-run homer in the seventh, one inning after Yasiel Puig launched a three-run blast. Pearce knotted the score with a solo shot in the eighth and delivered a three-run double during Boston's five-run ninth. Devers furnished the go-ahead, pinch-hit single to give the Red Sox their first lead in 26 innings.
Kike Hernandez cut into Boston's lead with a two-run homer in the ninth off Craig Kimbrel.
The Red Sox did nothing against Dodgers starter Rich Hill, who surrendered just one hit and left with a four-run lead in the seventh.
Neither team scored until Justin Turner came home on a throwing error by Christian Vazquez, who was trying to complete a double play. Puig followed with a three-run blast off Eduardo Rodriguez, who carried a two-hit shutout into the sixth.
Joe Kelly worked two innings of relief to get the victory. Dylan Floro was the loser.
