On Sunday night in Los Angeles, the Boston Red Sox and baseball’s highest payroll, won their fourth World Series since 2004.  They did so with a high priced pitcher on the mound and an AL East journeyman at the plate.

The Red Sox took a 2-1 lead in the first inning and never looked back.  David Price went 7 innings allowing only 1 earned run on three hits while striking out 5.

35-year-old Steve Pearce took home the World Series MVP award.  He went 2-4 with 3 RBIs in Game 5.  This came after going 2-4 and driving in 4 runs in Game 4.

Now, in addition to his MVP award, he’s the owner of the Dodgers and the Mayor of Los Angeles.

Pretty big week for Steve Pearce.
