    Alex Cora announces David Price is starting Game 5

    Alex Cora, Dave Roberts and players from both the Red Sox and Dodgers are set to speak prior to tonight's Game 5 of the World Series.

    Los Angeles is speaking now, with Boston set to take the podium at 5:30.

    The Red Sox hold a 3-1 lead in the series after last night's wild 9-6 victory. Boston trailed 4-0 before tying the game in the eighth inning on Steve Pearce's solo home run and exploded for five runs in the ninth before hanging on to win.

    The Red Sox, who won a franchise-record 108 games this season, are in search of their first World Series title since 2013 and fourth since 2004. The Dodgers, who lost in seven games to the Houston Astros last October, are in search of their first title since 1988.
