Video: Jackie Bradley, Jr. crushes an eighth-inning home run to tie Game 3

Manny Machado isn’t the only one who wishes his single off the wall in the sixth had actually been a home run. Down 1-0 with two outs in the top of the eighth inning, Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley, Jr. crushed a 2-0 pitch from Kenley Jansen to tie the Game 3 of the World Series 1-1:

It’s the first postseason home run to come off Bradley’s bat since Game 4 of the ALCS, and the third he’s hit so far this fall. According to MLB Stat of the Day, all 10 RBI he’s collected in the playoffs have come with two outs — and this was no exception. The Red Sox didn’t seize the opportunity to add to their total, however, as Christian Vazquez pounced on a cutter from Jansen and popped out to second base to end the inning.

The Dodgers, meanwhile, are still looking for their first win of the World Series. They took an early lead in the third inning of Game 3 when Joc Pederson collected a solo shot off of Rick Porcello, and appeared to hold the upper hand as Walker Buehler set down seven shutout innings.

Andy Slater of Fox Sports 640 South Florida reports that Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna recently suffered a facial injury after his wife allegedly hit him with a soap dish. The incident apparently happened a few weeks ago.

Slater says that Ozuna reported the incident to Miami police and that Ozuna’s wife, Genesis, was arrested and charged with domestic battery. She subsequently pleaded not guilty and was given a stay-away order. Presumably more legal proceedings are in the offing.

The injury itself doesn’t sound serious, but the matter certainly is.
