LOS ANGELES— Exhausting and then exhilarating for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Max Muncy’s home run leading off the bottom of the 18th inning finally ended the longest World Series game in history early Saturday and gave Los Angeles a 3-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox that drew the Dodgers to 2-1 in the best-of-seven matchup.
“You’d look up and see 18th inning and like, holy cow,” Muncy said. “There was no give up.”
While the Dodgers mobbed Muncy at home plate, the Red Sox will rue one that got away.
