BOSTON (AP) — The World Series champion Boston Red Sox have returned to Fenway Park, carrying the championship trophy they won a night earlier.
A caravan of buses arrived at Fenway on Monday night, less than 24 hours after the Red Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 to win the World Series in five games, giving the organization its fourth title since 2004.
A couple hundred fans and about a half-dozen TV cameras were waiting for the team.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — An 18-inning loss in Game 3 of the World Series couldn't wear out the Boston Red Sox. A four-run deficit late in Game 4 definitely didn't faze them.
This plucky powerhouse just kept getting big hits to move to the brink of another championship.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Boston's bench is a big reason why the Red Sox are one win from their fourth World Series title since 2004.
With the Red Sox regulars being held in check by the Los Angeles Dodgers, it was pinch-hitters Mitch Moreland and Rafael Devers who came up with huge at-bats as Boston rallied for a 9-6 victory Saturday to take a 3-1 lead in the Series.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on Game 4 of the World Series (all times local):
Steve Pearce hit a tying homer in the eighth and a three-run double in the ninth, and the Boston Red Sox rallied from a four-run deficit in the seventh inning for a 9-6 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night and a 3-1 World Series lead.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora has shuffled his lineup for Game 2 against the Houston Astros, putting infielders Ian Kinsler and Rafael Devers and catcher Christian Vazquez in the starting lineup for the first time in the AL Championship Series.
NEW YORK (AP) — Becoming the first player to hit for a postseason cycle earned Brock Holt a return to the Boston Red Sox bench.
Ian Kinsler was back at second base Tuesday night for Game 4 of the AL Division Series against the New York Yankees and left-hander CC Sabathia.
NEW YORK (AP) — Austin Romine never expected to replace Aroldis Chapman as the Yankees' closer.
A backup catcher, Romine was leaning on the dugout railing and watching New York get blown out by Boston in Game 3 of the AL Division Series when bench coach Josh Bard walked up to him in the eighth inning.
"Can you throw?" Romine recalled Bard asking.
"I can try," the seven-year big league veteran replied.
NEW YORK (AP) — Brock Holt had one thing in mind: He was swinging for the fences.
After all, the game was decided long ago. And everything else went Boston's way all night, so why not this?
A look at what's happening around the majors today:
NEW YORK (AP) — Fans have been waiting for another one of these rumbles: baseball's most-bitter rivals set to tangle again, this time as 100-win heavyweights in the playoffs.
Munson vs. Fisk, Pedro vs. Popeye , A-Rod vs. Varitek and earlier this year Brock Holt vs. Tyler Austin .
BOSTON (AP) — Any disappointment Jackie Bradley Jr. had about the replay review that turned his home run into a double disappeared soon after Brock Holt walked up to the plate.
The Red Sox pinch-hitter drove a tiebreaking double off the Green Monster on the first pitch after Bradley narrowly missed a homer, and Boston beat the New York Mets 5-3 on Saturday. Rick Porcello earned his 10th straight interleague victory and helped the Red Sox lower their magic number to four.
BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox became the first team in the majors to clinch a playoff spot this season, rallying on pinch-hitter Brock Holt's go-ahead home run in the seventh inning to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-2 Tuesday night.
The Red Sox assured themselves at least a spot in the AL wild-card game while reaching the postseason for the third straight year. The AL East leaders began the night with an eight-game lead over the New York Yankees.
BOSTON (AP) — The Red Sox became the first team in the major leagues to clinch a playoff berth and did not celebrate.
"Any time you make the playoffs and give yourself a chance to be that last team, it's a pretty special thing," Brock Holt said. "We're excited by that, but we've got more work to do."
Holt pinch hit in the seventh inning and hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in a 7-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night that guaranteed Boston no worse than a wild card berth.
BOSTON (AP) — Once the Boston Red Sox were done hitting line drives all around Fenway Park, they started thinking more about one that knocked David Price out of the game.
Mookie Betts homered early and had a two-run double in Boston's 11-run seventh inning as the Red Sox rallied for a 14-6 victory over the Miami Marlins after their hottest pitcher was injured Wednesday night.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Brock Holt took advantage of a rare opportunity.
Holt belted a pinch-hit tiebreaking homer, Rick Porcello threw seven impressive innings and the major league-leading Boston Red Sox beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 Tuesday night.
Sandy Leon also went deep for Boston, which improved to 86-35. The Red Sox increased their total to 168 homers, matching their number from last year when they hit an AL-low 168.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Down five runs in the third inning? Hardly a challenge for the Boston Red Sox, who quickly wiped out the deficit with a display of patience and power.
Xander Bogaerts and Andrew Benintendi each hit three-run homers, Brock Holt connected in a six-run sixth inning and the Red Sox overwhelmed the Baltimore Orioles 19-12 on Friday night.

Boston announced after the game it had acquired Ian Kinsler from the Angels to fill in for injured second baseman Dustin Pedroia.
DETROIT (AP) — Boston Red Sox second baseman Brock Holt left Friday night's game at Detroit in the fourth inning with what appeared to be a right knee injury.
Holt stayed on the ground for a while at the end of a wild play. He appeared to be hurt when the Tigers' Jeimer Candelario slid safely back into second. Holt was eventually able to get up and walk off the field.
BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox rolled through the pre-All-Star game portion of their schedule piling up wins. Now, they'll have a few days to sit back, relax and enjoy their historic start.
Xander Bogaerts homered in his first at-bat a day after hitting a walk-off grand slam and drove in two runs, leading the Red Sox past the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 on Sunday to enter the break with their best record since 1949.
BOSTON (AP) — Xander Bogaerts hit a game-ending grand slam with one out in the 10th inning, and J.D. Martinez hit his major league-leading 29th homer to carry the Boston Red Sox to a 6-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.
Martinez increased his major league-leading RBI total to 80 with a solo shot and red-hot Mookie Betts extended his hitting streak to 12 games with three singles to raise his majors' best average to .362 for Boston.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Brock Holt and Jackie Bradley Jr. each delivered a sacrifice fly in the 12th inning, and the Boston Red Sox limited the Baltimore Orioles to five hits in a 2-0 victory Monday night.
A pitching duel between Dylan Bundy and Steven Wright was ultimately decided long after both starters departed.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Seems the best-hitting team in the big leagues can win with pitching and defense, too.
Brock Holt and Jackie Bradley Jr. each delivered a sacrifice fly in the 12th inning, and the Boston Red Sox limited the Baltimore Orioles to five hits in a 2-0 victory Monday night.
Though the Red Sox lead the majors in runs and batting average, they managed only four hits through 11 scoreless innings in this one.
HOUSTON (AP) — As Andrew Benintendi walked to the plate in the seventh inning, Red Sox teammate Brock Holt predicted to manager Alex Cora that the outfielder would go yard.
Turns out, Holt tends to make that kind of bold claim two or three times a game. He was 1 for 1 on Saturday, though.
Benintendi and Christian Vazquez homered during a three-run seventh inning that lifted Boston over the Houston Astros 5-4 on Saturday night.
HOUSTON (AP) — Dustin Pedroia has been scratched from Boston's game against the Houston Astros on Thursday night because of a sore left knee.
He was scratched about 20 minutes before first pitch and the team says he is day-to-day.
Brock Holt moved from right field to second base to take Pedroia's place and Blake Swihart was inserted into the lineup to play right field.
BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox star outfielder Mookie Betts is out of the lineup for the second straight game because of tightness on his left side.
"We do feel that probably tomorrow might be a day that he will come back," manager Alex Cora said Monday morning before Boston's series opener against Toronto at Fenway Park. "I prefer to stay away from him for probably two days. If everything is going this way, there's no need to push him. Makes no sense."
BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts returned to the starting lineup after missing 15 games with a broken talus bone in his left ankle.
Bogaerts was activated from the 10-day disabled list Friday. He started at shortstop and batted fifth against Tampa Bay.
Bogaerts missed more time than initially expected. Boston manager Alex Cora said he wasn't going to rush the 25-year-old, an All-Star two years ago who was batting .368 with nine RBIs at the time of his injury.
