    This is the longest game in postseason history in terms of time played with so far 17 innings and more than 6 hours of play...

    After 3 games now the Boston Red Sox are up 2 games to 1, this 18 inning game was played in LA and the next two games are Dodgers home games as well played in LA...They need to win those next 2 home games, since the Yankees didn't make it to the world series I'm hoping to see the LA Dodgers win it all...

    Red Sox vs. Dodgers score: Max Muncy ends longest game in World Series history with Game 3 home run

    The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Boston Red Sox 3-2 in Game 3 of the 2018 World Series on Friday night. It was an 18-inning affair that doubled as the longest game in World Series history. As a result, the Red Sox now lead the best-of-seven series by a 2-1 margin. The two sides will play again in Los Angeles on Saturday.

    But before we learn whether or not the series will last that long, let's focus on what happened Friday -- and, well, into Saturday. Here are 11 things you need to know about Game 3.

    It took until the 18th, but Max Muncy ended the game with a walk-off homer against Nathan Eovaldi, who was nearing 100 pitches in relief. In the process, he made some history:

    Earlier in the game, in the 15th, Muncy had nearly ended the game on a long flyball that went foul.

    With one swing, Muncy seemed to breathe new life into the Dodgers' championship hopes. We'll see if it they remain.

    Eduardo Nunez has been critiqued throughout the postseason for a lack of production and poor defense. He's making up for it in this series, including with a crucial Game 1 home run.

    In Game 3, Nunez came to the plate in the top of the 13th and was upended during the at-bat when Austin Barnes attempted to retrieve a ball. Brock Holt was able to advance to second. It looked like Nunez was injured and may have to exit -- which would've been an issue, considering the Red Sox had exhausted their position player supply.

    Soon thereafter, Nunez hit a grounder to the pitcher and raced to first in an attempt to reach on an infield single. He was safe no matter what, as the ball got away, but remained down once more. Again Nunez stayed in. Perhaps the fact that Holt had scored the go-ahead run helped ease whatever pain he was in at the time.

    No one expected Nunez to play a big role in this series. Yet he continued to do so in the bottom half of the frame. Nunez made a running grab on a pop-up from his shifted position, causing him to go into the stands. That allowed Max Muncy to advance to second, and he'd soon score on an error by Ian Kinsler that would've ended the game had it been an out.

    Rather, the game roared on, ensuring that Nunez's heroics would soon be overshadowed.

    Speaking of unlikely heroes, the Red Sox bullpen started its long night in the fifth, when Rick Porcello departed after 4 2/3 innings. Porcello had allowed a run at that point, but the Dodgers wouldn't add to their total in the frame.

    Rather, Eduardo Rodriguez escaped the fifth. Then Joe Kelly, Ryan Brasier, Matt Barnes, David Price, Craig Kimbrel, Heath Hembree, and Nathan Eovaldi -- who was originally scheduled to start Game 4 on Saturday -- combined to keep the Dodgers off the board over the ensuing nine-plus frames. Obviously Eovaldi gave up a run (unearned) in the 13th and then another (earned) in the 18th, but the Red Sox bullpen essentially threw a hidden shutout.

    Despite the final result, Eovaldi in particular deserves kudos for essentially throwing his start a night ahead of time.

    It will take a miracle for the Dodgers to win the World Series this year. The Red Sox are a JUGGERNAUT.
