2020 World Series Game 1: Los Angeles Dodgers v. Tampa Bay Rays Photo by Kelly Gavin/MLB Photos via Getty Images

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 13 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..

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!
