The Dodgers are just One. Win. Away.
The boys from LA were just a Game 7 victory away in 2017, were trounced in 2018 by the Red Sox and didn’t make an appearance in 2019. But the past is the past and the future is now, and they have a chance to send the Rays packing with a Game 6 win Tuesday night.
The hope rests in the arm of Tony Gonsolin, who has been largely underwhelming this postseason for the Dodgers: In his first World Series start, in Game 2, Gonsolin went 1 1/3 innings — on two days’ rest — allowing one run on a home run, walking a batter and throwing 29 pitches (16 for strikes).
The Rays are countering with Blake Snell, who was pulled a little early in his Game 2 start. Snell allowed two runs on two hits and four walks but struck also out nine over 4 2/3 innings. Now, facing elimination — where the Rays have been twice already this postseason — they’ll turn to him to help pull out a win that will force a Game 7.
Can the Rays reach back into their black bag of devil (ray) magic and pull out the win? Or can the Dodgers exorcise demons of Fall Classics past and capture that elusive World Series ring?
