Dodgers dominó 8-3 a Rayas de Tampa Bay / Dodgers defeat Rays, 8-3, in Game 1 of World Series

El abridor Clayton Kershaw trabajó seis sólidos episodios, tuvo el respaldo de dos jonrones, el primera base Max Muncy y el guardabosques Cody Bellinger remolcaron dos carreras cada uno y los Dodgers de Los Ángeles vencieron 8-3 a los Rays de Tampa Bay en el primer juego de la Serie Mundial.

Con la victoria, los Dodgers consiguen ventaja de 1-0 en la serie del Clásico de Otoño que se juega al mejor de siete.

En la primera Serie Mundial que se juega en un campo neutral que ha funcionado como «burbuja» debido a la pandemia de coronavirus, Kershaw (1-0) con su serpentina puso en ventaja a los Dodgers.

Una multitud de sólo 11.388 personas (debido a la restricciones por la pandemia del coronavirus) asistió al «Globe Life Field», la gran mayoría vistiendo la playera de los Dodgers.

El abridor permitió dos imparables, un jonrón y una carrera, dio un pasaporte y retiró a ocho por la vía del ponche.

The reasons for the Dodgers’ cool, unfiltered confidence this October, the reasons they believe this is finally the year they’ll hoist that piece of metal, were put on display in their 8-3 win in Game 1 of the World Series at Globe Life Field on Tuesday.

Want dominant pitching? Clayton Kershaw held the Tampa Bay Rays to one run and two hits over six tidy innings. What about a power display? Cody Bellinger, sore shoulder and all, cracked a home run for the series’ first two runs. Think dynamic baserunning is important? Mookie Betts, the Dodgers’ new table-setting weapon, wreaked havoc on the basepaths to ignite a four-run fifth inning.

The Dodgers blended those elements together to take 1-0 series lead, three wins away from their first title since 1988, on the 32nd anniversary of the night that last championship was clinched. Game 2 is scheduled for 5:08 p.m. PDT on Wednesday.
