The Boston Red Sox won Game 4 of the Best-of-7 series with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Red Sox won 9-6 over the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California.

The Red Sox now have a 3-1 lead over the Dodgers. They will attempt to end the series on Sunday night. If not, they will attempt to end the series on Tuesday night back in Boston, Mass. at Fenway Park.

“I’ve never been on a team where you just get punched in the face and then come back tomorrow and act like they are totally fine,” Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez said. “It’s impressive.”
