In the MLB World Series:
The Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4 last night to even the World Series at one game each. Tampa Bay second baseman Brandon Lowe hit two home runs, a solo shot in the first inning and a two-run homer in the fifth. Rays starting pitcher Blake Snell struck one nine Dodgers in four and two-thirds innings and didn’t allow a hit until he gave up a two-run home run in the fifth. Tampa Bay’s bullpen held off an attempted comeback by Los Angeles in the eighth inning to complete the victory. Game 3 of the neutral-site World Series will be held at the Texas Rangers’ new stadium Friday night.
