Old Walker Buehler tweet goes viral during World Series

When your scheduled starting pitcher for Game 4 of the World Series ends up being the losing pitcher in Game 3 the night before - or in this case, the morning of - what do you do for a starting pitcher in Game 4?

It was the first game-ending home run in a World Series game at Dodger Stadium since 1988, when a hobbled Kirk Gibson won Game 1 in the ninth inning againstthe Oakland Athletics.

Kenta Maeda walked the first two Red Sox to start the 15th and didn't allow a run. It came when Ian Kinsler threw away what could have been the final out of a Red Sox victory in the 13 inning. Muncy, who also reached on a leadoff walk, moved up when Nunez, of course. went into the stands catching a foul pop for the second out. Someday, the luck will turn for the city of Beantown, and a lot can happen between now and the Red Sox winning their fourth game of this series.

Muncy homered to left-center on a full-count pitch from Nathan Eovaldi, jolting the remaining fans to their feet at 12:30 a.m. One of those was in the 1916 Series between the Red Sox and Brooklyn Robins, who later became the Dodgers. Buehler allowed only two hits and no walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out seven, throwing a career-high 108 pitches in the effort.

Twice before had Series games lasted 14 innings - Mets-Royals in 2014 and White Sox-Astros in 2005.

Jackie Bradley Jr. rewarded Alex Cora's trust in him with a game-tying homer in the eighth inning.

As Muncy's towering shot off Boston reliever Nathan Eovaldi sailed into the left field bleachers the capacity crowd let out a mighty roar but the Dodgers will have little time to savor the hard-fought victory with Game Four set for Saturday. Pinch-hitter Eduardo Nunez got flipped on his back by catcher Austin Barnes as he chased Scott Alexander's wild pitch.

His options for Game 4 include Pomeranz, ace Chris Sale on three days' rest or a total bullpen game with a bullpen that has pitched 20 1/3 innings in the first three games. "This whole year has been a surreal experience that it's hard to put into words". It is the only World Series game to go 18 innings.

Game 4 is Saturday, with Rich Hill scheduled to start for the Dodgers.

Since the Red Sox were out of position players, Nunez stayed in the game and hit a weak dribbler toward the first base side.

He was on the verge of returning for the start of this season when the Rays announced near the end of spring training that he had loose bodies in his elbow and needed surgery.
