The Dodgers beat the Rays on Tuesday night to win the franchise’s first World Series title since 1988.
The Los Angeles Dodgers outlasted the Tampa Bay Rays in a tightly contested Game 6, winning 3-1 on Tuesday night in Texas to claim the franchise’s first World Series championship since 1988.
Los Angeles fell behind early in Game 6 after Rays left fielder Randy Arozarena hit his record 10th home run of the postseason in the first inning.
But in the bottom of the sixth inning, a one-out single by Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes chased former AL Cy Young winner Blake Snell from the game. And following a double by right fielder Mookie Betts and a wild pitch by Rays reliever Nick Anderson, the Dodgers found themselves tied 1-1. One pitch after allowing Barnes to score, Betts scored the go-ahead run on a fielder’s choice.
Los Angeles never looked back.
