ARLINGTON, Texas – Mookie Betts came to the Dodgers to make a difference in the World Series With a mad run to plate he put Los Angeles on top

Kershaw was warming up in the bullpen when Julio Urias knocked out Willy Adames to end it and ran alongside his teammates to celebrate on the pitch – with many players and coaches still wearing face masks at the end of a season that unfolded in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic

Los Angeles had failed twice in the World Series in the previous three years and Betts were on the other side two years ago with the Boston Red Sox, who prior to this season traded the 2018 AL MVP to Dodgers They then granted him a $ 365 million extension over 12 years until he turned 40 in 2032.

Betts’ 3’s 2-second sprint was just enough time to beat first baseman Ji-Man Choi’s throw, pushing Los Angeles to 2-1 moments after Rays manager Kevin Cash pulled out the ace from the left-hander Blake Snell despite a dominant performance in 5 1/3 innings

Powerful Tampa Bay rookie Randy Arozarena extended his playoff record with his 10th homerun in first straight corner rookie Tony Gonsolin, first of seven Dodgers pitchers The Rays have never had another runner beyond second base as the Los Angeles reliever pen gave rescue-dependent Tampa Bay a taste of its own medicine
