The Dodgers and The Rays are Neck & Neck after Game 2 of the World Series
Posted on October 22, 2020, 4:23 am
Last night the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers, 6-4, in Game 2 at Globe Life Field in Arlington. Now the two teams are neck and neck for the title. And it’s looking like it’ll come down to game 6 or 7 till it is clear who’s taking the series home.
Both games thus far have delivered breathtaking home runs, 100 mph fastballs and two teams that appear to be soaking up every single moment on Major League Baseball’s biggest stage.
Coming into the game, Brandon Lowe got things started for Tampa Bay with a solo shot in the first inning. Then, after Joey Wendle delivered a two-out, two-run double in the fourth, Lowe added a two-out, two-run homer in the fifth to give the Rays a 5-0 lead.
The Los Angeles Dodgers got one back in the bottom of the sixth on a Will Smith solo shot, then another in the eighth on a deep homer to center field by NLCS MVP Corey Seager to make it 6-4. LA had a chance to score another in the frame after Justin Turner doubled with no outs, but a Max Muncy flyout and a great snag by Wendle on a screamer from Smith allowed Aaron Loup to close out the inning by striking out Cody Bellinger.
Aaron Loup retired the first two outs of the ninth, then Castillo came in and struck out Taylor to get the save and end the game.
Game 3 is slated for tonight, at 5:08PM.
