The Tampa Bay Rays were largely dominated in Game 1, and recovered well Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers (6-4) to return to the Californians after two World Series games. Carried by two home runs from Brandon Lowe, the Tampa Bay Rays returned to the Los Angeles Dodgers after winning Game 2 of the World Series (6-4) on Wednesday night in Arlington, Texas. Completely dominated in the first meeting on Tuesday (3-8), the players of the Florida series this time took the lead from the first to the last bat with a home run from Lowe in the first half.
Pitcher Blake Snell hurt him a lot for California hitters, who made 118 home runs in the regular season. On Wednesday, they had to wait until the fifth round to register one thanks to Chris Taylor. But the hole was already made. Meanwhile, Joey Wendle and Brandon Lowe had also scored home runs for Tampa Bay. With an attack found, the Rays beamed the second success in the history of the franchise in the World Series after the one achieved in 2008 against Philadelphia (defeating 4 games to 1 in the end). A recent home run by Will Smith for the Dodgers allowed the Californians to close the gap, but the Los Angeles franchise never managed to catch up. The two teams will be able to take advantage of a rest day before returning to the field on Friday, to match 3. The crowd at half mast for match 1 Dodgers victory to start the world series did not fascinate the viewers: according to figures published on Wednesday, so only 9.2 million people at the game. A small historical audience: the previous “record” was held by Game 3 in the 2008 series between Philadelphia and … Tampa Bay. Last year, 12.3 million viewers watched Game 1 between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros.
