A 22-year-old CT man climbed a light pole early Monday morning in Boston, punched the light fixture several times, and shattered it, in the midst of intense celebrations over the Red Sox World Series win, police said.

His two stellar World Series starts - having also started Game Two - also put to rest any questions about his ability to perform in the post-season. He hit a solo home run in the top of the eighth, tying the game at four after Los Angeles had a 4-0 lead. He pitched under pressure through most of Game 5 until Mookie Betts homered in the sixth, one inning before J.D. Martinez went deep. He is just the second pitcher age 38 or older to post three World Series starts in which he's allowed just one earned run, including two past year.

It's the fourth World Series title for the Red Sox since their 2004 championship ended an 86-year drought.

Beck said while watching the loss was one of his least favorite experiences, being at the World Series with his sons was one of his best. By the time they were done decimating the Dodgers' bullpen, six Red Sox had combined for seven hits - four for extra bases.

Pearce was an instant hit with Boston, stroking a double against CC Sabathia at Yankee Stadium on the first pitch he saw after the deal.

While the crowd of 54,367 was stunned, Freese woke up fans in the bottom half.

In a series of home run tweets, the account celebrated the World Series victory by clapping back at the peanut gallery, singling out a few non-believers who tweeted their doubts on Opening Day.

Freese hit an opposite-field drive to right on a 91.7 miles per hour fastball that went 402 feet.

By then, Red Sox fans had started planning for the April 9 home opener against Toronto, when the championship flag will be raised over Fenway after Boston opens with an 11-game trip out West.

Boston went 7-1 on the road in the post-season and 10-0 overall when scoring first.

Given the talent level of the Boston roster and Dombrowski's flexibility to improve it, the Red Sox should be in contention for another one of these celebrations one year from now. The Red Sox defeated excellence en route to their coronation.
