That's what Red Sox manager Alex Cora dropped on the way out of a postgame press conference after a 9-6 victory over the Dodgers moved his club to within a win of copping a World Series title.

"We'll sit down tonight and decide and somebody will start, " Cora said, "probably a lefty".

"We're in a good mental space right now". Obviously he's been throwing the ball well.

Los Angeles trails 3-1 in the best-of-seven Series. Sale has struggled with velocity loss and faltering command in recent starts, and of course he dealt with shoulder issues throughout the latter half of the season. His teammates often mention how impressed they've been with the left-hander pitching at less than 100 percent. A hint, I said. "I'm excited for the opportunity".

Joe Kelly was the victor after tossing two shutout innings.

Game four was only 3 hours, 57 minutes, but had at least as many dramatic twists. It's kind of been, I guess, the motto. He'd made his big league debut earlier in the year, pitched a little in relief and was left off the post-season roster.

Once J.D. Martinez went down swinging for the third out, the crowd of 53,114 erupted and Buehler, usually unemotional, let out a roar and exhorted the fans to get even louder.

"It was an wonderful game", Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig said. "He's not staying back".

"I felt good the whole time". He's actually not attacking pitches in the zone. "I feel awful. I feel bad for Nate [Eovaldi]".

They said that despite repeated warnings of security risks, the US President refused to give up his personal phones. He also reportedly exchanged numbers with French President Emmanuel Macron.

With that said, it sounds like Cora's decision is just as much strategic than anything else. He was back in the lineup for Game 4 and was 1-for-4.

Bellinger started a sensational, inning-ending double play from center field, catching Nunez's pinch-hit fly and then firing to catcher Austin Barnes a few feet up the third-base line.
