Justin Turner honked a dinger to tie Duke Snider for the most postseason dingers in the history of the Dodgers franchise, Walker Buehler and his tight pants gassed the Tampa Bay bats, and Los Angeles took home a victory in Game Three to open up a 2-1 advantage in the 2020 World Series.
That was yesterday. Today is not yesterday.
Ryan Yarbrough will toe the rubber for the Rays on Saturday as Tampa looks to again square the series. He’ll be opposed by talented young lefty Julio Urias, who will get the start for Los Angeles. The dueling lefties on the mound to start will surely mean both Dave Roberts and Kevin Cash will be using their vast platoon-advantage depth early, which will leave both managers in position to make the strategic moves late in the game that could help decide the series.
That’s fun to think about. Let’s hope it’s close enough this time around to actually matter.
First pitch at Globe Life Park Field Stadium Coliseum Arena Dome of the Fans is set again for 8:08 PM ET, so tune in accordingly.
