Rays Win Game 2 as Snell Records 9 Ks, Lowe 2 HRs
The Rays take Game 2 of the World Series by a score of 6-4. Blake Snell struck out nine batters and Brandon Lowe hit two opposite-field home-runs! The second home-run being on an 0-2 count with two outs in the fifth inning off Dustin May. Snell ran into some trouble in the bottom half of the fifth inning after getting out Cody Bellinger and AJ Pollock. Kike Hernandez walked and Chris Taylor took Snell deep to cut into the lead. Mookie Betts walked and Corey Seagor singled. Kevin Cash made the decision at that moment it was time to pull his starter. Nick Anderson, Peter Fairbanks, Aaron Loup, and Diego Castillo had a job to do out of the bullpen. Nothing new for this Rays squad. Loup struck out Bellinger looking to end the eighth inning in a two-run game with Justin Turner on third. Very impressive. The Rays needed this one, no doubt about it. With Tony Gonsolin on the mound for the Dodgers, this was a game to take!

The Dodgers take a 1-0 series lead after beating the Rays 8-3 in Game 1 of the World Series. Clayton Kershaw recorded eight strikeouts in six innings. Tyler Glasnow allowed a two-run shot by Cody Bellinger after walking Max Muncy in the fourth. In the fifth inning, Glasnow walked Betts and Corey Seagor back-to-back to start the inning. Kevin Cash kept him in too long and that was the turning point of the game. Oh yeah, by the way, Betts is a good at baseball.

Kershaw Deserves Cy Young Over Phils Aces
Continuing a debate posed on the 97.3 ESPN FM facebook page in September, I believe Clayton Kershaw should be named the 2011 National League Cy Young Award winner at 2 PM on Tuesday when the announcement comes down from the Baseball Writers' Association of America.
