“Snellzilla” was unleashed in Game 2 of the 2020 World Series, but can the Rays follow it up?
As the saying goes, momentum is your next day’s starting pitcher, and Blake Snell stomped all over LA in the Rays’ 6-4 Game 2 win on Tuesday night. Snell notched nine strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings, reminding the Dodgers that they can certainly match their pitching, arm for arm. With a 1-1 World Series tie right now, the vibes are positive for Tampa Bay.
There’s also more good news for the Rays: Brandon Lowe did a little yard work in Game 2, raking in three RBIs on the strength of two homers. If Tampa Bay wants any chance at taking a series lead in Game 3, then they’ll need more offense from Lowe and the rest of the Rays to match the bats of the Dodgers, certainly not an easy task, but if Game 2 was any indication, it’s doable.
The matchup for Game 3 is a doozy, too, with the Rays sending Charlie Morton to the hill. The Dodgers are countering with Walker Buehler, in the makings of a classic pitcher’s duel. (It probably won’t work out that way. It never does.)
The Dodgers and Rays meet in Game 3 of the 2020 Fall Classic tonight. Here’s what you need to know:
