Clayton Kershaw beats Tampa Bay Rays again as Los Angeles Dodgers move one win away from Series

As Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts strolled to the mound with two outs in the top of the sixth inning, a chorus of boos rained down from the crowd at Globe Life Field. Even though this was Game 5 of Major League Baseball’s first neutral-site World Series, Dodgers fans have overrun the stadium, and they let their feelings be known: They did not want Roberts to remove Clayton Kershaw from the match. Roberts did not abide, and as Kershaw strode off the mound, it was to a sound too often unfamiliar to him in October: cheers. If ever there was a postseason to […]

Los Angeles Dodgers take game 1 of World Series

Going into his Game 1 World Series start for the Los Angeles Dodgers versus the Tampa Bay Rays in Arlington, Texas, Kershaw’s pedestrian 11-12 career playoff record and 4.31 ERA is nearly two full runs worse than his 2.43 career ERA and unheard of 175-76 record. His career 5.40 World Series ERA in five prior starts and his October struggles follow Kershaw 12 months a year every year, and will until the future Hall Of Fame lefty exorcises his playoff demons. It didn’t matter that the 32-year-old winner of three Cy Young Awards, one MVP and five league ERA titles […]

Tampa Bay Rays take game 2 against Astros, lead 2-0

Two games in a row now, the difference in the Tampa Bay Rays defeating the Houston Astros in the ALCS has come down to one play. The Rays, as anybody who has watched them this campaign know, make plays. The Astros, in what sealed their fate in Game 2 on Monday, did not. One play — one throw in fact — was what spelled defeat for the Astros this time. Jose Altuve shorted a throw to first base in the first inning. Yuli Gurriel couldn’t dig it out. An easy third out turned into another opportunity for the Rays with two runners on base. And […]

Tampa Bay Rays rely on bullpen depth in another one-run win to open ALCS

After his team locked up yet another one-run victory by beating the Houston Astros 2-1 in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Sunday, Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash wouldn’t attribute that success to anything but bullpen depth. “Our analytical guys might think they’re lucky or fluky, but, no, I don’t think that,” Cash said after the Rays improved to 16-5 in one-run games this season, including the playoffs. That .762 winning percentage in such contests is the best of any team in baseball history, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. After the Rays overcame an early 1-0 deficit, Tampa Bay […]
