Game 5 is Sunday at Dodger Stadium, where the Red Sox can close out a spectacular season with their fourth title in 15 years.

Weeks after the Boston Red Sox knocked the New York Yankees out of the postseason, the team celebrated their World Series win against the Los Angeles Dodgers by trolling their longtime rivals.

A championship parade will be held for the Red Sox in Boston Wednesday morning.

Price was superb over seven-plus innings, two nights after pitching in relief. In Game 2 Price pitched 6 innings only allowing 3 hits and 2 earned runs while striking out five batters.

Center fielder Mookie Betts leads off, followed by left-handed-hitting Andrew Benintendi in left field, first baseman Steve Pearce and right fielder J.D. Martinez in the cleanup spot.

Losing pitcher Clayton Kershaw surrendered four runs and seven hits over seven frames.

Pearce is the first position player to win World Series MVP with 50 or fewer regular season games for the winning team in his career.

After Pearce arrived at second and Martinez was intentionally walked, Martinez used his hands to make a heart and mouthed "I love you!" to Pearce. The Red Sox lost one game to the Yankees in the ALDS, mauled them, 16-1, the next night, and won the series in four.

It's crunch time for the Dodgers and their fans.

Freese hit an opposite-field drive to right on a 91.7 miles per hour fastball that went 402 feet.

Working on a one-hitter with a 4-0 lead, Rich Hill had just set down Eduardo Nunez swinging for the first out of the seventh inning. Then the Sox retaliated by playing the song ― also a tradition on the loudspeaker after Yankee home games ― when they eliminated the Yankees in NY.

Given the talent level of the Boston roster and Dombrowski's flexibility to improve it, the Red Sox should be in contention for another one of these celebrations one year from now.

For the Red Sox and their fans, it was the flawless postseason.
