Coming off the longest game in postseason history, everyone wanted to see something different in Game 4 of the World Series. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox provided them exactly that on Saturday night.

Eduardo Rodriguez and Rich Hill battled it out in a pitcher’s duel for much of the game. In the sixth inning, Los Angeles jumped out to a 4-0 lead and seemed to pull away with the game. Unfortunately for Los Angeles, poor managerial decisions and bullpen implosion cost them dearly.

In the ninth inning, Boston’s bats woke up and put the finishing move on Los Angeles with a five-run inning. Los Angeles attempted a comeback in the bottom of the ninth, but it wasn’t quite enough. After losing a grueling heartbreaker in Game 3, the Red Sox rebounded hours later with an incredible victory.

Here are the winners and losers from Game 4 of the World Series.
