Game 2 Recap

The series is even now at one apiece with the Rays closing out innings strong in this game 2 and now that have the last say batting at the bottom of the inning heading into game(s) 3 and 4. Here is some recap and reactions that I had from the game last night:

  • The Rays made it clear early that game 2 was going to be different with Brandon Lowe ’s home run as the second batter of THE GAME! Lowe wasn’t finished there as he later hit a 2-run homer in the top of the fifth and put the Rays at 28 total home runs in a postseason (that’s the most by any team… ever in a postseason). Oh and Lowe is the only Rays player with 2 HR in a single World Series game.
  • Snell’s first inning was only 10 pitches and he held a no hitter all the way until the 5th Snell was super impressive with 9 strikeouts including 3 that ended innings. If the series goes to a game 6 or 7, I’d make sure that Snell is rested because the Dodgers just didn’t have answers to his sinker.

  • What a hit by Taylor to end Snell’s no-hitter and the shutout that had been happening to that point in the bottom of the fifth to give the Dodgers a breath of air at the bottom of the 5th making it 5-2 instead of 5-0.
  • Isn’t it a little wild when one team hits 3 home runs and loses a baseball game? Well that happened to the Dodgers who could just not A) Get people on base throughout the game and B) Could not bring in the people on base when they were there. They’re going to have to find a better way to convert against a very deep Rays’ bullpen that get’s Charlie Morton ready to deal next game.

  • Next game you have Charlie Morton who is a seasoned postseason vet facing off against Walker Buehler who looks to provide a better matchup than Gonsolin did on Tuesday against this Rays lineup.
