World Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Two Photo by Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday. The World Series takes a pause today, and that series is now tied at a game apiece after Wednesday night’s Rays win.

Entering Game 2, Rays second baseman Brandon Lowe was 6-for-56 in the postseason, and that was after he batted .269 with 14 homers during the regular season. Lowe broke out of that slump on Wednesday night, hitting two home runs and driving in three. Rays third baseman Joey Wendle drove in Tampa Bay’s other three runs.

The Dodgers did hit three home runs of their own on Wednesday, with shots from Chris Taylor, Will Smith, and Corey Seager; Taylor’s home run was the only one off Blake Snell. Snell worked 4 23 innings, allowing two runs with nine strikeouts.

Game 3 of the World Series will be Friday night.

In Cardinals news, Yadier Molina is seeking a two-year deal, per his agent. We haven’t heard any chatter surrounding Adam Wainwright, and Kolten Wong has an option that needs picked up as well.

Questions for your Thursday:

  1. Would you give Yadier Molina a two-year contract?
  2. What are the chances that all three (Molina, Wainwright, and Wong) return to St. Louis in 2020?

Have a good day!
