>> It's not over yet, but this year's World Series is already one for the history books. The Boston Red Sox could win it all Sunday night after staging an unlikely, dramatic comeback in game four. But some say it was actually Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts who handed Boston the victory.
Roberts making the controversial decision to pull starting pitcher Rich Hill in the seventh inning, despite Hill only giving up one hit. Hill's departure was then followed by an epic bullpen collapse, Dodgers relief pitchers blowing the team's four-nothing lead. LA ultimately losing 9 to 6 and falling behind three games to one in the best of seven series.
Roberts taking heat not only from sports writers, but even President Donald Trump who tweeted. It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose and dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of the Dodgers, and brings in nervous relievers who get shellacked, 4 run lead gone.
Managers do it all the time, big mistake. Roberts looked surprised when told by a reporter after the game that Trump had weighed in. He shrugged off the criticism by saying quote, that's one man's opinion. The Dodgers collapse followed their thrilling victory the night before in which they won 3-2 in 18 innings, the longest World Series game in history.
Sunday night's game five will feature a clash of left-handed aces, with Boston's David Price battling the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw.
