Tonight could be the night a champion is crowned in Major League Baseball. Game 6 of the World Series between the Dodgers and Rays is tonight inside Global Life Park in Arlington.
LA leads the series 3 games to 2 after Clayton Kershaw won his second game of the series 4-2 in Game 5. Neither team has been able to win two straight in this series, the Dodgers have won the odds and Tampa’s won the evens.
The Rays will send Blake Snell to the hill while LA counters with Tony Gonsolin. Snell pitched 4 2/3 in Game 2, giving up 2 runs on 2 hits while striking out 9. Gonsolin took the loss in Game 2. He only threw and inning and a third, surrendering a run on a Brandon Lowe leadoff homerun.
LA sent six different guys to the hill in Gonsolin’s last start. Expect more of the same with a bullpen game tonight for the Dodgers. LA’s looking for their first championship since 1988 and would get it with a Game 6 win.
