Oct. 23 (UPI) -- The Boston Red Sox never trailed, but had to hold off the Los Angeles Dodgers for a win in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday at Fenway Park in Boston.
Boston's dagger came on a three-run home run from Eduardo Nunez in the bottom of the seventh inning. Nunez walked up to the plate to face Dodgers reliever Alex Wood with two outs in the frame. He took Wood deep to left field for a 373-foot shot with an exit velocity of 107-mph, according to Statcast. The bomb gave Boston a four-run lead, which it would not surrender.
