This was the longest game to go down in World Series history. Tied 2-2 at the bottom of the 18th inning, #18, Max Muncy, stepped up to the plate and hit a walk-off home run to win the game 3-2. In the series overall, the Dodgers were now down 1-2. Committed and ecstatic fans lit up the stadium and most stayed for the entirety of this lengthy game. The Dodgers did not give up nor quit, as they fought their hearts out for each of the 26,400 seconds. Their perseverance, grit, strength, and determination definitely showed up throughout the entire course of the game, especially toward the end when they brought home the win. Winning this game gave the Dodgers some momentum, as they were confident and pumped up going into the fourth game of the World Series. Their team demonstrated an example of determination at its finest. No matter the time it took, or how the previous games ended, the Dodgers proved their strength and ability to come back when unexpected. Although the Red Sox fought hard the next night and ended up on top, winning the World Series, the Dodgers never gave up despite their continuous losses. This tough loss will encourage and motivate the Dodgers to work hard during training and come back next season as 2019 World Series Champions.
