World Series 2020: Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB World Series Preview

The Los Angeles Dodgers (43-17) now hold a 1-0 series lead over the Rays, and that Game 1 win was a complete team effort. They had a mix of slugging and small ball to run up the score, putting up eight runs in bunches. Both Cody Bellinger and Mookie Betts hit home runs, while the bottom half of the batting order strung together key singles to produce a four run fifth inning. Pitcher Clayton Kershaw got the win with six innings of pitching with only one earned run.

In Game 2, the Dodgers will give the ball to pitcher Tony Gonsolin (2-2). He’s a second year player who has an outstanding career 2.60 earned run average, but this is his first ever postseason and he lost his only start to Braves in the Championship series. Can he tune out the pressure and bring the heat?

The Tampa Bay Rays (40-20) put up a fight in Game 1 of the World Series even if it didn’t go their way. Centerfielder Kevin Kiermaier hit a home run and drove in two runs on two hits, but he was the only Ray to have more than one hit. Additionally, the Rays batters only managed to draw one walk the entire game. The Braves managed to frustrate the Dodgers in the last round by working the count for long at bats, and that can lead to more walks. It’s a strategy the Rays should consider.

The Rays turn to starting pitcher Blake Snell to help them rebound in Game 2. Snell has had an excellent season and very good postseason, with a 3.38 earned run average this October. The bigger question will be if the hitters can step up at the plate and produce runs early.
