The 2018 World Series was the championship series of Major League Baseball’s 2018 season. The 114th edition of the World Series was played between the American League (AL) champion Boston Red Sox and the National League (NL) champion Los Angeles Dodgers. The Red Sox beat the Dodgers in five games to win their fourth World Series title in 15 years dating back to 2004, and their ninth in franchise history. This was the second World Series match-up between the two franchises, after the Red Sox defeated the Brooklyn Robins (later known as the Dodgers) in five matches in 1916. The show was sponsored by the Internet television service YouTube TV and officially known as the 2018 World Series introduced by YouTube TV.
The Series was televised in the USA on Fox. Steve Pearce won the World Series Most Valuable Player Award, while Alex Cora became the fifth first-season manager and first director from Puerto Rico to win the World Series. The Series was noteworthy for its third match which went to 18 innings, a World Series record.
The 2018 World Series has been the first since 2000 to comprise two teams that had reached the postseason in the previous calendar year. Moreover, the Red Sox became the first team to win two World Series exactly one century apart, since they had defeated the Chicago Cubs in 1918, although the Dodgers were the first group as the 2011 Texas Rangers, and the first NL team since the 1992 Atlanta Braves, to shed successive Fall Classics.
