But the veteran first baseman hit the game-tying home run in Game 4, and put the Red Sox on the scoreboard with another home run in the first inning of Game 5. Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez each added solo shots as the Red Sox bats doomed Clayton Kershaw to his 10th career postseason defeat.

I've been through a lot in three years since I came here, this is why I came to Boston. He might be remembered as the scapegoat for the Dodgers' failure, and he is indeed the easy target: the mercenary who was brought in to win a title and who did not, and who wasn't around long enough for anyone to get attached.

Pearce, a journeyman who has played for every team in the American League East division, had three home runs and eight RBI in five games. Not by a 35-year-old journeyman.

Kershaw, who now has the choice to opt out of his Dodgers contract, was left with yet another postseason disappointment. David pitched a great game.
