Tampa Bay Rays
It took a few innings for Los Angeles to break through against Tyler Glasnow in an eventual 8–3 victory in Game.
Cody Bellinger opened the scoring in the World Series after closing the scoring in the NLCS against Atlanta. He homered off Glasnow to put the Dodgers up 2–0.
Kevin Kiermaier struck back the next inning with a solo home run to momentarily get the Rays back into the game before LA scored the next six runs.
Kevin Cash stuck with Glasnow for too long. He threw 112 pitches and gave up six runs before giving way to Ryan Yarbrough.
Yarbrough threw nineteen pitches before it became apparent the Rays’ deficit was too large to overcome. The left-hander should still be in line for a Game 4 start.
Game 2’s starter will be Blake Snell. In four postseason starts this season, Snell has given up eight runs in twenty-five innings (2.88 ERA).
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers will start with Tony Gonsolin in Game 2 and mix and match from there.
Gonsolin pitched twice in the NLCS, the first time as the Game 2 starter, when he pitched well before running into problems in the fifth.
He also piggybacked on Dustin May in Game 7 and threw forty-one pitches in two innings.
He may be a one-inning opener. He may go through the lineup once for Dave Roberts here after just two days of rest. Much will depend on how effective he is.
The Dodgers’ lineup, however, has built up some momentum, whomever it will be charged to support in this game.
Bellinger looks more comfortable at the plate now than he’s ever looked before in postseason play. Mookie Betts had a couple of hits, including his first postseason homer, and reached base three times.
As the Dodgers continue winning, though, the price keeps shooting upward. We may need to to find a different angle in which to play this one.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction: under.
The total for Game 2 ticked up half a run, as compared with Game 1.
I would feel better about playing an under with Snell on the mound over Glasnow but I suppose I could be influenced by some hindsight bias there.
Still, both teams are well set-up in the pitching staffs after Game 1. The Rays have their best relievers available to back Snell. The Dodgers will likely use Dustin May, Julio Urias and Brusdar Graterol.
I would think three runs will be enough to win this game and so I’m going to play the under on a friendly total.
