Los Angeles Dodgers take lead again in World Series.
The Los Angeles Dodgers won their third game in the Major League Baseball (MLB) World Series and took the lead for the second time in the final series. Against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Dodgers clearly won 6-2 on Friday night.
Pitcher Walker Buehler was the outstanding player, as he allowed the Rays just one run and three hits in the first six innings. Four victories are necessary for the title. For the Dodgers, the best team in the regular season, which has been shortened significantly due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it would be the first World Series triumph since 1988.
The World Series is played this year in Arlington, Texas, near Dallas, at Globe Life Field, with a reduced stadium capacity, in front of around 11,000 spectators. The MLB is the first of the major US leagues to determine their mastery in front of fans. The final series and playoffs in the NHL and NBA, took place in remote venues and there were no spectators.
For Tampa Bay, rookie Randy Arozarena set a home run record in the ninth and final inning. With his eighth overall in the play-off, he is now level with Nelson Cruz (2011), Carlos Beltran (2004) and Barry Bonds (2002).
The home run was also his 23rd hit in the play-off, with which Arozarena improved Derek Jeter’s rookie record (1996). Breaking news – Los Angeles Dodgers take the lead again in World Series.
