Eovaldi had been scheduled to start for the Red Sox, but he threw 97 pitches in relief as one of nine pitchers they used. He knew immediately upon contact that with one crack of the bat, his Los Angeles Dodgers were about to even this World Series at two games a piece. After blowing a lead the Dodgers never blow, the Boston Red Sox are one game from shoving Los Angeles into the void.
However, despite one dramatic turn after another on the field and Max Muncy living the dream with that walk-off homer well after midnight PT at the bottom of the 18th, the ratings for Fox did not hold out as long as the fans on Friday.
Eovaldi earned recognition and praise from all sides, as several Dodgers noted his special performance.
But the Dodgers, chasing their first World Series title in 30 years, needed a record 18 innings and a record seven hours 20 minutes to avoid being pushed into a 0-3 series hole from which only one team - the 2004 Red Sox in the American League Championship Series - have ever escaped. They'll be bragging about staying up to watch the entire game.
Let me play, too: The only players who didn't see action? But just keep in mind to call their Game 4 victory this: The kind of comeback from which champions are forged.
Price is coming off a strong start in Game 2 against the Dodgers and before that an even stronger start against the Astros in Game 5 of the ALCS.

The victor or winners would also have a one-time cash option of $428.6 million - a prize that's still more than alright. The prize was $50,000, but because the player also bought the Power Play option, the ticket is worth $100,000.
Boston Market, a Beantown-founded restaurant that proudly bears its name in red, white and black letters is going blue for the World Series - at least in Los Angeles. "That was kind of defeating at that point, but I was able to get back and get another shot". After he was pulled, closer Kenley Jansen gave up a tying home run to Jackie Bradley Jr.in the eighth, and the game went on and on. Pitch count down. He pitched (in Game 3). "But for him to go that deep in the game was really impressive".
Clayton Kershaw, a three-time NL Cy Young Award victor with a.163 career batting average, pinch hit in the 17th inning and lined out.
The Dodgers trail 2-1 in the best-of-seven Series. Xander Bogaerts, who had a clutch knock in the ninth inning, is batting.105 (2-for-19).
The Dodgers' first run Saturday came courtesy of a Boston error, just as L.A. tied Friday's 18-inning marathon in the 13th on an error.
After throwing six pitches in relief the night before, left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez largely stymied the Dodgers until giving up Puig's homer in the sixth.
Rodriguez threw 93 pitches and became the first pitcher to start a World Series game on zero days' rest since Firpo Marberry for the Washington Senators in 1924.
