I hope you didn’t jump to any conclusions or assume the Dodgers would run away with the World Series after Game 1. The Rays weren’t going to curl up in a ball and concede defeat that easily, you know.

A day after dropping the series opener, Tampa Bay bounced back with a strong 6-4 win in Game 2 on Wednesday night. With Blake Snell on the mound, the Rays evened up the Fall Classic to make it a best-of-five the rest of the way.
You want some takeaways from our baseball crew? You got it:
  • Snell dominated early: Tampa needed to find a way to slow down the Dodgers’ explosive offense, and former Cy Young winner was up to the task. Snell didn’t give up a hit until the fifth inning — a two-run home run to Chris Taylor — and things unraveled a bit from there, but his early dominance provided the Rays with stability out of the gate and they jumped out to a 5-0 lead
  • Lowe had his breakout game: Brandon Lowe was an abysmal 6 for 56 (.107) this postseason heading into Game 2 but he finally busted that slump with a big night on Wednesday. Lowe went 2-for-4 with two home runs in the victory. With a little momentum behind him, Tampa may have another impact hitter in the lineup… and they’re gonna need all the bats working against LA
  • The Dodgers’ youngsters are struggling: LA continue to use Tony Gonsolin and Dustin May as openers/relievers during this postseason and the young arms continue to struggle. Both had rough nights — Gonsolin gave up a run in 1 1/3 innings of work while May gave up three runs in 1 1/3 innings. They now have a combined ERA of 7/02 in just under 17 innings this postseason.
