LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Kenley Jansen gave up Jackie Bradley Jr.’s dramatic tying homer in the eighth inning Friday night Fernando Rodney Jersey , the Los Angeles Dodgers‘ bullpen apparently had failed at a crucial time in another World Series.As it turned out, Game 3 wasn’t even half over.LA’s up-and-down bullpen shook off the disappointment of Bradley’s quiet circling of the bases and provided several hours of redemption in an epic 18-inning affair.The Dodgers’ eight relievers pitched 11 collective innings of five-hit ball in the longest World Series game ever, largely shutting down Boston’s powerhouse offense after rookie starter Walker Buehler dazzled the Red Sox with seven innings of two-hit excellence.“The way that our guys, our pen, got the outs that they needed, they did a heck of a job,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “So you look at tomorrow, after playing 7 hours and 20 minutes, our pen is in pretty good shape.”Jansen still blew his attempt at a six-out save in his third major World Series failure of the past two years. Bradley’s homer set in motion the events that led this game all the way into Saturday.But the Dodgers’ vaunted closer shook it off to pitch a perfect ninth.His successors largely shut down Boston’s powerhouse offense, hanging in while the Dodgers’ bats went 10 innings between runs. After giving up one weird run in the 13th on Scott Alexander’s throwing error, Los Angeles’ relievers eventually yielded just one hit in the final five extra innings.Los Angeles’ bullpen threw 170 pitches — a pittance compared to the Boston bullpen’s 222 pitches, and a possible advantage in Game 4. Most of LA’s bullpen can throw again on Saturday night, since none of the eight relievers threw more than two innings or Kenta Maeda’s 36 pitches.“There’s some guys that we wanted to stay away from today, namely (Ryan) Madson, Julio (Urias),” Roberts said. “But for those guys to give us big outs and pick us up when we needed it, it’s kind of a signature of our ballclub. Had our backs against the wall many times, and for us to persevere, and it wasn’t how we scripted it, but it was a big win for us.”Late in the season during which the “bullpen game” entered baseball’s lexicon and relievers became arguably more important than ever, Boston and Los Angeles set a new postseason record in Game 3 by using a combined 18 pitchers.Both bullpens were outstanding, and both minimized the damage when both teams scored unusual runs in the bizarre 13th inning.Maeda might have produced the biggest single inning from LA’s bullpen in the 15th after Eduardo Nunez singled and Bradley walked. Maeda fielded Christian Vazquez’s bunt and boldly spun and threw to third, forcing out Nunez by inches — and then Maeda struck out Sandy Leon and Mookie Betts to quell the threat.Alex Wood , the starter coming out of the bullpen, got the win by pitching out of trouble in the 18th after Leon drew a leadoff walk. Game 2 was the first time the Los Angeles Dodgers led the Boston Red Sox at any point of the series. Boston played one full inning with the Dodgers up 2-1 before answering back with three runs of their own to put them up 4-2.In Friday night's Game 3鈥攖he longest game in World Series history鈥攖he Dodgers put even more pressure on the Sox, going up 1-0 in the third inning. Boston didn't answer back until the eighth inning, with a solo homer by Jackie Bradley Jr. tying the game at 1-1 and sending the third tussle of the 2018 World Series into extra innings.The Sox were finally able to notch a second run in the 13th inning, but the Dodgers responded with a run of their own to level proceedings. The marathon of a game, which lasted more than seven hours, went to the 18th inning. That's when Los Angeles' Max Muncy had a walk-off homer to give his team an epic 3-2 win and cut Boston's series lead to 2-1.The most exciting game of this World Series, Game 3 showed off both teams' pitching abilities on a night where each squad sent nine different pitchers to the mound. The Red Sox pitchers totaled 15 strikeouts and two earned runs, while their Dodgers counterparts answered back with 19 strikeouts and two earned runs.While L.A. stepped up from its three-hit Game 2 performance with 11 hits in Game 3, Boston had a little more trouble at the plate, hitting only seven鈥攊ts lowest total of the series.Game 4 InfoWhen: Saturday, 8:09 p.m. ETWhere: Dodger Stadium, Los AngelesTV: FoxLive Steam: Fox Sports Go Game 4 PreviewWith Games 3 and 4 back-to-back, the pitching lineup was unknown until Friday afternoon, when it was announced Nathan Eovaldi would start Game 4 for the Red Sox and Rich Hill would be in for the Dodgers.However, the situation changed as Boston stretched into the 12th inning of Friday night's game. Eovaldi was brought out to relieve Heath Hembree from the mound and pitched six innings. He struck out five and allowed three hits on 97 pitches before giving up the homer that won the Dodgers the game.David J. Phillip/Associated Press/Associated PressOn Saturday afternoon, the Red Sox finally released their starting pitcher for Saturday night's game. Left-handed Eduardo Rodriguez will be the first player since 1924 to start a World Series game on zero days' rest, according to SportsCenterEduardo Rodriguez will become only the 6th pitcher in World Series history to start a game on 0 days rest. The last guy to do that and win?Orval Overall ... in 1908. kvZCL2QJAQWhile Rodriguez has played frequently in the postseason, he has not played for very long鈥攚ith his most pitching in one game coming in 1.2 innings against the New York Yankees in the division series. Additionally, Rodriguez has not started a game in the postseason yet and hasn't pitched more than 3.7 innings since September 13.Rodriguez had an ERA of 3.82 in the regular season, and in the 4.1 innings he has played in six different postseason games, he has allowed three earned runs. Along with that, he has allowed two hits and a homer while walking three and striking out five.Rodriguez has struggled giving up runs , which could prove to be problematic for the Sox. In the month of September, Rodriguez gave up 15 earned runs in 25 innings played.Here's a look at how Dodgers players have fared against Rodriguez in their careers:Brian Dozier: 4-for-9, 2 HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 3 KDavid Freese: 1-for-2, 2 BBEnrique Hernandez: 2-for-2Manny Machado: 6-for-33, 2 2B, 4 BB, 6 KCorey Seager: 1-for-3, 2B, RBI, KChris Taylor: 1-for-1Justin Turner: 0-for-3, KHill has also been confirmed as the starting pitcher for the Dodgers despite some doubt. Hill was initially slated as Game 4's starting pitcher; however, after Friday night's 18-inning game, the Dodgers said their starting pitcher was "TBD."Yianni Kourakis YianniKourakisDave Roberts says they were toying with an 鈥渙pener鈥?but decided to stay with Rich Hill for game four ufVe4FfJ1EDuring the regular season, Hill boasted an ERA of 3.66 and led the Dodgers' pitchers in wins with 11. He has started two games in the postseason and closed the Dodgers' 7-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 6 of the National League Conference Series.In the two games he started and won against the Brewers and the Atlanta Braves, Hill allowed only three earned runs and seven hits through 9.1 innings. He struggled to hit the strike zone, though, allowing eight walks while striking out nine.Against Boston, however, the 13-year veteran has found more success. Here's a look at how some of the Red Sox players have matched up against Hill in their careers:Mookie Betts: 1-for-1Brock Holt: 0-for-1, KIan Kinsler: 1-for-7 Glen Perkins Jersey , 2 K, 2 BBJ.D. Martinez: 2-for-9, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB, 5 KMitch Moreland: 0-for-2, 2 KEduardo Nunez: 4-for-9, 2B, HR, 2 RBI, KSteve Pearce: 3-for-11, RBI, KHill has 12 strikeouts compared to three walks and 11 hits. This does not bode well for a Sox team that struggled to get anything going at the plate during Friday's game.Hill's experience and stronger numbers lean toward a favorable matchup for the Dodgers. While both teams exhausted their bullpens on Friday night, the Dodgers were able to rest Hill and have him ready for Saturday night. Rodriguez, on the other hand, pitched one out鈥攁 strikeout鈥攊n the fifth inning of Game 3. With Rodriguez's track record for playing fewer innings and Hill's team-high 11 regular-season wins, the Dodgers look like they may be able to tie up the series 2-2 on Saturday night in Los Angeles.Game Prediction: Dodgers 5, Red Sox 3
