The Dodgers much more disciplined hitters than TB. More prepared to make the pitcher throw strikes and then do the team thing to get on base/hit in runs + hit the long ball as well. TB just seem like they're trying to blast their way to the W in every game(as evidenced by the huge strikeout numbers).

Still in it though, but a bit more of an all or nothing approach.

Not sure why the experts were second-guessing Dave Roberts on replacing Kershaw with May even after he got 4 or 5 outs

He did a pretty good job as a reliever. I would've left him in (May, that is.)

Yeah, it was the right call. Both bullpens have been used a lot so it's smart to preserve arms where they can. If it goes to a game 7, might see Kershaw again, for example.

Snell doing his job beautifully. Now the TB hitters need to do their part and convert some of those base runners.

Danger time here, with Seager leading off.

I get the feeling Hamish McLachlan studied Joe Buck's commentary when he got a job with Channel 7

They have the same style: endless verbal diarrhea about a player's back-story, their families and other irrelevant bullshit and then summarising the previous 30 seconds of action with faux-gravitas as they go to an ad.

Always talking about something other than what's immediately occurring.

Feel free to get in the present moment and call the game!

Surely the TB manager has just gotta say ~ "hey guys, for the love of christ, just take a little off it and get the barrel on it"...ridiculous amount of fanning going on.

Hoo boy!

Lucky.

Turner gave that a decent tonk. Just needed one more Vita Brit for breakfast.

Thought it was 4-1 for a sec there.
