through the streets of boston. the red sox completed a 4—1 series win over the la dodgers on sunday to claim their fourth championship in 15 seasons — after an 86—year drought. players rode on duck boats, and displayed the championship trophy. following boston's win in la, the red sox chairman tom werner spoke to the bbc‘s chris mitchell. it was an historic season for the red sox. the team that won 108 games in the regular season. but then we had to go into the tournament and in the tournament they beat the new york yankees in new york and the houston astros, who were at offending baseball champions last yearin offending baseball champions last year in houston, and then to beat the dodgers, who were the national league champions in los angeles. it is very hard to win on the road. and you have to beat three excellent teams and we had a remarkable season and an even better place to season. cycling, and the route for the 2019 giro d'italia was announced on wednesday. the first of the year's three
grand tours will include a record 46,500 metres in climbs. that's 2,000 more than this year's race. it all starts on saturday 11th may with an individual time—trial which starts and ends in bologna. it's the first of three time—trials in next year's race. there's also a hilly time—trial from the adriatic coastal town of richone to san marino. that'll test the climbers on stage nine before the first rest day. the 102nd edition of the giro will also include seven summit finishes — before finishing in verona on second june. but will it include the reigning champion? or will he be targetting the tour de france instead? good question. i think we are all going to sit down in december and work out exactly who is doing what. like i said in there, if i am not bear time to defend my title, then there will be one of my teammates —— not there trying to defend. try to do not there trying to defend. try to d o exa ctly not there trying to defend. try to do exactly the same thing. either way it is an important race for the
team. it is a 10th anniversary of tea m team. it is a 10th anniversary of team sky. i think it would be really important to target the chirat italia as well. on to cricket, and pakistan beat new zealand byjust two runs in the first twenty20 international in abu dhabi. pakistan batted first after winning the toss, and mohammad hafeez top—scored with 45 as they made 148 for six from their 20 overs. sarfraz ahmed weighed—in with 34. that left the black caps chasing 149 to win — and they made a great start thanks to opener colin munro who top—scored with 58 off 42 balls. but, apart from ross taylor — who hit an unbeaten 42, no—one else really got going. new zealand were restricted to 146 for six as pakistan squeezed home by two runs. the second match is on friday in dubai. you can get all the latest sports news at our website — that's bbc.com/sport. but from me and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye. hello there.
