The Boston Red Sox had all but skittered away their 2-0 World Series lead.After dropping a 3-2 decision in 18 painful innings in Game 3 Tyler Anderson Jersey , they were trailing the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 after six innings Saturday. The Red Sox appeared to have lost their way on offense, as 38-year-old left-hander Rich Hill had dispatched them with ease through six innings.In the seventh, manager Dave Roberts decided Hill had done enough and that he could turn the game over to his bullpen. That decision may be questioned throughout the winter, as the dormant Boston bats came to life. They scored nine runs over the final three innings and pulled away for a 9-6 victory to give the American League champions a 3-1 lead in the World Series.The Red Sox and Dodgers will meet in Game 5 on Sunday at 8:15 p.m. ET, and the game will be broadcast by Fox.World Series ScheduleTuesday: Boston 8, Los Angeles 4Wednesday: Boston 4, Los Angeles 2Friday: Los Angeles 3, Boston 2 (18 innings)Saturday: Boston 9, Los Angeles 6; Boston leads 3-1.Sunday: Red Sox at Dodgers , 8:15 p.m. ETOctober 30 (if necessary): Dodgers at Red Sox, 8:09 p.m. ETOctober 31 (if necessary): Dodgers at Red Sox, 8:09 p.m. ETAll World Series games will be televised by Fox.Live Stream:Fox Sports GoSportsCenter SportsCenterMitch Moreland hits a NO-DOUBTER to bring the Red Sox within 1.(via MLB)HZZKcJemLA Pinch hitter Mitch Moreland got the Red Sox started with a three-run homer in the top of the seventh inning, and Steve Pearce followed up in the eighth inning when he launched a solo shot over the left-field wall in the eighth inning off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen.While the Red Sox were getting their offense going, hard-throwing reliever Joe Kelly blanked the Dodgers in the seventh and eighth innings.The Red Sox came through with their biggest inning of the World Series in the top of the ninth. Brock Holt got the rally started with a double down the left-field line, and Rafael Devers gave the Red Sox a 5-4 lead with a base hit up the middle.After Mookie Betts walked and Andrew Benintendi followed with an infield single, Pearce laced a double up the right center field gap that cleared the bases. Xander Bogaerts drove in Pearce with a base hit.Closer Craig Kimbrel came into close down the game, and while he got the job done, he gave up a walk and a two-run homer to Kike Hernandez."It was a great night all the way around Chris Rusin Jersey , and a great team win," Pearce told Fox reporter Ken Rosenthal. "It's a dream come true. It's a cool feeling to do something special, but we have one more game to go."Clayton Kershaw will get the ball for the Dodgers in Game 5.Charles Krupa/Associated PressThe fifth game was going to have the same look as the series opener. Chris Sale was scheduled to be on the mound for the Red Sox, and Clayton Kershaw will pitch for the Dodgers.However, after their Game 4 win, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that he was going with David Priceand that Sale would pitch Game 6 if the series goes back to Boston.Sale pitched 4.0 innings in Game 1, and he allowed three runs on five hits. He struck out seven and walked two, and one of the hits that he allowed was a home run to Matt Kemp.Kershaw gave up seven hits and five runs in Game 1 while striking out five and walking three.Price has pitched 6.2 innings in the World Series and has allowed two runs on four hits while striking out five and walking four. Price started Game 2, came out of the bullpen in Game 3 and warmed up during Saturday's action.Game 4 was pristine through the top of the sixth inning. Eduardo Rodriguez had held the Dodgers to two hits. However , the Dodgers broke through in the sixth when the first run was scored on an errant relay from catcher Christian Vazquez to first base. Yasiel Puig followed with a three-runhomer deep into the left-field seats to give the Dodgers what appeared to be a comfortable margin.However, that's when the Red Sox showed that their bats still had plenty of life, and they barged through what appeared to be a tiny crack and turned it into an eight-lane highway.The Red Sox were the best team in baseball during the 162-game regular season and have been throughout the playoffs. They have a chance to make it official if they can win one more game. PredictionThis has been a difficult World Series to predict, and while it appears the Red Sox have all the momentum after scoring nine runs in the past three innings to secure a 3-1 lead in the World Series, it would be wrong to count out the Dodgers.Kershaw may not be the dominant pitcher he was two or three years ago because he has lost velocity, but he is at home in a game his team must win.Price has been sharp in his past two starts and should pitch well here. Whether it will be good enough to bring the Red Sox the World Series title is questionable.The Red Sox will battle hard and may take a lead in the game, but the Dodgers' desperation should will out and send the World Series back to Boston for a sixth game.The Dodgers will win Game 5. Rob Carr/Getty ImagesThe Philadelphia Phillies are reportedly likely to be major players in the free-agent market during the upcoming offseason.According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, the Phillies are "expected to go hard" after Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado once they hit the open market.Heyman noted that while Harper is unlikely to be traded prior to Tuesday's non-waiver deadline, the Phillies are viewed as a team that should consider making a run at him due to their reported interest in signing him during the offseason.Per ESPN'sTim Kurkjian Jon Gray Jersey , the Nats are exploring Harper's trade value since they trail the Phils by 5.5 games in the NL East.Machado was already moved, as the Baltimore Orioles dealt him to the Dodgers on July 18 for a package of five prospects.The 25-year-old Harper has had an up-and-down year, as he is hitting just .220 but has 25 home runs and 62 RBI.He was named an All-Star for the sixth time this season, and he won the National League MVP Award in 2015 when he slammed a career-high 42 homers.Machado, 26, is in the midst of his best MLB season.The four-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove Award winner is hitting .314 with 26 home runs and 70 RBI split between the O's and Dodgers.Harper and Machado are set to become two of the most highly sought free agents in recent memory provided they don't re-sign prior to the offseason.The Phillies are ahead of schedule in their rebuild, as they own a 58-48 record, which is good for a half-game lead over the Atlanta Braves in the NL East.Due to the Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks' strong records, the Phils are just percentage points ahead when it comes to a wild-card spot Adam Ottavino Jersey , however.Trading for Harper would be a significant risk since he could leave during free agency for nothing, but it is also a move that could make the Phillies true World Series contenders this offseason.If they opt against making a deal for Harper, the Phillies can still accelerate their rebuild even more and potentially become an elite team should they land Harper and/or Machado prior to the 2019 campaign.
