Good morning, everyone! Hope your Wednesday is going well.
The Dodgers took Game 1 of the World Series last night, besting the Rays by an 8-3 final score. Clayton Kershaw got the win with his six innings of one-run ball (a homer from Kevin Kiermaier) and eight punchouts. Cody Bellinger and Mookie Betts both homered for Los Angeles; Betts also stole two bases, Corey Seager walked three times, and Chris Taylor and Max Muncy had two hits apiece. The Dodgers were 5-for-14 with runners in scoring position.
On the Tampa Bay side, Tuesday was a rough outing for Tyler Glasnow. Glasnow faced 23 batters in 4 1⁄3 innings and allowed six earned runs on three hits and six walks. Glasnow fanned eight in his outing, and made a bit of (infamous?) history along the way..
Tyler Glasnow is the first pitcher with 8+ strikeouts and 6+ walks in a #WorldSeries start since Steve Carlton (6 BB, 10 SO) in a Game 2 win for the #Phillies over the #Royals in 1980. @MLBNetwork— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) October 21, 2020
Game 2 of the World Series is tonight at 7:08 PM CT. Tony Gonsolin will go for the Dodgers, opposite of the Rays’ Blake Snell.
Any takeaways from Game 1? Any predictions for Game 2?
Have a great day!
