Yadier Molina’s two-run homer in the seventh
Fans of the Boston Red Sox will experience familiar emotions Wednesday when their team parades through the city for the fourth time since 2004.While some fanbases go through stressful championship series Mike Matheny Jersey , Red Sox supporters have experienced 12 victories in 15 World Series contests during their recent title runs.The latest championship side to come out of Boston never appeared to face much stress over five games against the Los Angeles Dodgers, even when the National League champion won an 18-inning Game 3.Over the course of five games, the Red Sox produced plenty of memorable moments, with a handful coming in Games 4 and 5, when they snatched the momentum away from the Dodgers for good on their way to clinching the series.The 2018 World Series was supposed to start off with a pitcher's duel between Boston's Chris Sale and Los Angeles' Clayton Kershaw, but the Red Sox lineup had other thoughts.Andrew Benintendi and J.D. Martinez set the tone for the series with a pair of RBI singles in the first inning off Kershaw, who lasted four innings.Just as the Dodgers pulled themselves back into Game 1, Eduardo Nunez delivered a three-run home run in the seventh inning to seal the victory.MLB MLBNOON TIME.#WorldSeries IFWyZwsix1In Game 2, the Red Sox did the majority of their damage at the plate in the fifth inning, with Martinez's two-run double highlighting the rally.MLB MLB.JDMartinez14 is a hitting MACHINE. #WorldSeries nDc3GxKnkVDavid Price silenced the Dodgers lineup in the second game at Fenway Park, as he gave up three hits and two earned runs over six innings in the first of two terrific starts.Although the Dodgers came out on top in Game 3 , the 18-inning marathon still produced some memorable Red Sox moments.In the 13th inning, Nunez stole the spotlight, as his short single in front of home plate started a play in which Brock Holt scored.FOX Sports FOXSportsBOSTON SCORES IN THE 13TH!Brock Holt scores on an Eduardo N煤帽ez grounder to give Boston the lead in the 13th inning!

What a catch going into the stands! qCmYWp0LByA day after falling short in Game 3, the Red Sox found themselves down by four runs after a Yasiel Puig home run, but a three-run shot from Mitch Moreland and solo home run off the bat of Steve Pearce changed the course of the series.MLB MLBMitchy to the MOON. 馃槺#WorldSeries DnptDcV2n5Rafael Devers came up with the most important hit of Game 4, as his single scored Holt and gave the Red Sox a 5-4 lead.CBS Sports HQ CBSSportsHQRafael Devers comes up HUGE for Boston.

It was a shot at Aaron Judge, who left Fenway Park after Game 2 of the ALDS by blaring the Yankees anthem outside the locker room.Cut4 Cut4Playing quot;New York, New Yorkquot; in the clubhouse?The RedSox have ZERO chill. xvonvEJ7gr Few starters in baseball have needed as little cushion this year as St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Miles Mikolas. Monday night’s 11-6 victory in Atlanta upped his record to 16-0 when receiving two or more runs of support.Mikolas gets the call Sunday when St. Louis tries to bolster its National League wild-card playoff hopes with a series sweep of the San Francisco Giants in Busch Stadium.St. Louis leads Colorado by 1 1/2 games for the final wild-card spot. The Cardinals also edged within two games of Milwaukee for the first wild-card and are 4 1/2 games behind the Chicago Cubs for the NL Central lead.Article continues below ...Mikolas (16-4, 3.01 ERA) has been perhaps the best value signing of the offseason. Skepticism abounded when the Cardinals (86-69) inked him to a two-year, $15.5 million deal after three successful seasons in Japan. After all, Mikolas looked like bottom of the staff material while posting a 6.44 ERA in10 starts in 2014 with Texas.But Mikolas has surprised the skeptics, averaging just over six innings a start and making every turn in the rotation. He has fewer walks (29) than starts (30) and could lead the NL in wins if he winds up on the upside of his last two starts.“I’ve been fortunate than when I pitch, we have great offense and we’ve put up runs and we play great defense and everything has come together ,” Mikolas said to after his victory in Atlanta. “It’s been a great season for me.”Mikolas will make his fifth career appearance against San Francisco, although it will be his first as a starter. He has no record and a 1.69 ERA in 5 1/3 innings.St. Louis pulled out a dramatic 5-4, 10-inning victory Saturday over San Francisco to move one step closer to its first playoff spot since 2015. Yadier Molina’s two-run homer in the seventh inning erased a 4-2 deficit and Tyler O’Neill’s tape-measure blast with two outs in the 10th supplied the Cardinals their 11th walk-off win of the year.San Francisco (72-83) has nothing left on its plate beside contractual obligation and statistical incentives. The Giants have battled the Cardinals hard in the series’ first two games, but their bullpen has let them down, as has often been the case this year.Rookie left-hander Andrew Suarez (7-11, 4.24 ERA) takes the ball for San Francisco, looking to build on two straight quality starts. Suarez picked up a 4-2 win on Monday night in San Diego, working 7 2/3 innings and allowing two runs and four hits with three walks and four strikeouts. This will be his first career outing against the Cardinals.St. Louis second baseman Kolten Wong, who left Friday night’s game after seven innings after he suffered cramps in both hamstrings, could be available for Sunday’s game.
