first pitch, Monsey, fastball high and outside.
Muncie is another big piece of the top of the order in the cleanup spot.
Again, he's hit three home runs in the entire postseason.
Blake Snell through just 11 or 12 pitches in the first inning.
You hear me back and the first pitch.
Two months he's in for strike.
Rosa ran a striking out.
Oh, that's unfortunate.
Isn't it, though? 11 That's again.
I saw Rosie ran a strikeout.
You did hit a home run earlier this game.
I was very unfortunate.
It looked like a piece he could just launch into left field that flat out on the 21 months he swings, It's just out in front of the plate.
Blake Snell Throw the first in time.
He called off Sandino and a nice field play and throw from Snell, and he has retired his first four batters on four pitches per batter.
We'll see if Dylan Floro comes back in the top half of the 30 Probably well.
He just threw three pitches and struck out of Rose Arena.
Now it's Will Smith, the designated hitter.
Will Smith, batting 1 43 in this world.
Siri's he He was great for the Los Angeles Dodgers last Siri's against the Atlanta Braves.
He hasn't really gotten anything going to say the least.
You know, um, he's put the bat on the ball, but unfortunately, it hasn't been able to fly far.
So 10 to count on Smith.
And again, that one is blowing outside Tuo Will Smith with the hitter's count.
So you need behind the plate tonight.
You need now another guy that hasn't been hitting well in this playoff.
Siri's Smith takes strike one on the outside corner, and Ben, wasn't it interesting that they Kevin Cash Boogeyman Choi up at in the one spot? He did that a lot last season in the regular season, but to do it in Game six, it's a It's a clutch move.
But as the 21 is a curveball in for strike two beautiful movement again from Snell, then the count is even at two apiece.
Now's movement tonight has been unbelievable.
His fastball around 96 his curveballs around 78.
Um, you know so much movement on that curveball.
Such a hard hit, the pitch or to hit to to putting a miss.
He struck him out on the fastball.
Blake Snell has retired his first five batters faced and 80% of them on strikeouts got him swinging at the high fastball.
Now it will be Cody Bellinger.
Yeah, it's not typical of this Dodgers lineup to start off a game like this.
The smell struck out four people tonight already bet Seeger turns struck out the side in the first inning, and then Smith just now.
Wow, four of the five batters he's faced.
What a night so far for Blakes.
Now let's see if he could keep it up here.
Bellenger Technically bound you glad sorry Bellenger to strike one Snell through 1.
2 innings pitched again.
The four K's no hits, no walks.
Bellenger cutting a miss on the outside slider.
Oh, to belt Lake Snell is breezing through the Dodger lineup.
I'm so glad I got to see Blakes.
Now get this Siri's See boots.
Siri's extended to at least six games so we could see him twice.
You know, he's such a phenomenal pitcher.
Had a great last season.
This season was cut short but had a great season this season and and on the Otero cutting, Um, it's from Bellinger.
He swung at that ball that wasn't even close to being a strike, but it's Nell strikes out five of his first six batters.
He is untouchable through two innings.
Do up for Tampa Bay in the top half of the second or the third.
Margo Meadows singled in his first at bat and Lao walked in his first at bat.
Raised on top one. Nothing.
This is rarely seen from this Los Angeles Dodgers lineup.
You know you, you know, innings into the game and it's always, you know, a 30 score or two years score.
The past few games, it's flip flop.
Today, it's one nothing.
Tampa Bay Rays leading the Dodgers.
So, um, it's just very interesting, you know, usually joining you on the broadcast.
Um, the Dodgers jump off to a little lead early, but here it's just flip flop, and that's great for Tampa Bay Rays fans.
And for fans that want to see a seven game Siri's, it's everybody also left two runners stranded in any number one and two with 1st and 2nd 2 outs.
It was meadows and loud that were left in the first thing.
And then the second cure Meyer and Show I left stranded with Rose Arena striking out on three pitches.
But they're getting baserunners.
Just need to follow through.
And something with low pitch.
Um, snails got a low pitch count.
Um, smells showing that Cy Young material tonight.
Yeah, and if you never know, later tonight, Charlie Morton is the probable starter for Game seven, if necessary.
But if they need him in the bullpen and a big emphasis on the need, he will come in.
But the way this is going right now, Blake Snell is trying to take this one into at least five innings.
And I really hope Kevin Cash heard you on that on the emphasis of Need Kevin Cash as well as Dave Roberts.
Especially this being a world.
Studies have really emphasized the bullpen and how important it's been, you know, relieving glass now in the first game.
Yes, that was necessary early on, relieving Morton early on, um, relieving, relieving, relieving.
That's what Kevin Cash was done throughout this series.
But I would love to see him, um, put Snell in for a little bit longer due to this amazing to start tonight.
Big game on Saturday.
The Paul Bunyan Trophy, Michigan State and Michigan Little Brother.
Michigan State fell to Rutgers last week to possession.
Lost Michigan with a commanding win over the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
PJ Flex Boys taking the loss and now Meadows steps in. He will face.
Let's see the picture.
Dylan boats Alex would coming in and he throws a first pitch ball blowing outside.
So floral throws three pitches and they say you're done.
Going back Thio football Specifically the NFL The How did you see the Los Angeles Rams take down the big bag Bears the other night? That was amazing.
Coming from Los Angeles.
A team I really root for now, The 11 Meadows a cutting a Miss Alex would is spending no time between pitches and unlike council, and that's a big difference.
It was smart to bring him in because Gonsouland was taking at least 10 seconds in between pitches.
He does a little bop right before he checks on second base and Meadows, a cutting amiss on another, outside ball in the dirt.
The meadow strikes out on four pitches, back to back strikeouts from Flora and wood.
And now it will be Brandon loud more, only 13 outs into this game.
And this game has been on for over an hour.
So it's right to point out the Gosselin the right to point out Gosselin taking his time during pitches.
Brandon Loud takes a first pitch ball.
That fastball in the lower outside corner of Lao walked this first plate appearance tonight.
Yeah, the 10 allow grounds This one and would comes over, makes the play toss the first in time.
Brandon Lao still without a hit.
This Siri's that wasn't a home run and would retires the first two batters he faces on six pitches.
But now Manuel Margo, right in the middle of the lineup.
He's been one of the hotter hitters, Tampa Bay and postseason.
It was a lot of talk about Margo's moved to steal home, but it was definitely the right thing to Dio.
It was actually a brilliant move.
You don't It was great baseball, like we read it perfectly.
Just the result was unfortunate can't base it all off the result.
But now, first pitches lowing in from Alex would a sinker.
I would agree with that, although taking the hands or taking the bat out of the hands of Kevin Kerr Meyer in that position, you know he did it.
He did have a good opportunity to steal home and be safe.
Unfortunately, the outcome was not that he was safe.
But, you know, it was a good opportunity when the 10 was lowing in on Margo the 20 is in for strike one sinker 92 21 Manuel Margo's lines this one into center field.
Bellenger on the run.
He makes the grab and right center so Alex would retires.
Three raised batters on 10 pitches in the third.
We go to the bottom half of the inning.
Do up for the Dodgers.
Chris Taylor, A J.
Pollock and Austin Barnes 789 hitters for Los Angeles after Snell retired first.
If you go back to what you said about leaving runners on base, the razor hitting 1 84 with runners in scoring position this postseason, why the all the Dodgers air here in 3 54 with runners in scoring position and two outs.
So a lot of the Dodgers runs are converted on two outs.
Like we noted previous to the street, Your prior to the street and the bottom of the lineup has been no breeze through through this postseason and specifically in the world. Siri's.
We've seen a Jaak Peterson home run saw that gained five.
Austin Barnes had another home run and that this Dodgers lineup, top to bottom, has been so sharp and consistent.
But Mookie Betts had a big game one.
He's been the leadoff hitter every game. So far.
He has continue to struggle at the plate and through 15 outs, there have been 11 strikeouts, five recorded by Snow.
I only think we've seen a few balls in the infield, saw the Blake Snell out the little do inker from Munsey.
That's keeping the ball out of the field, is what the picture just have been doing.
Including God, who? Four K's.
Yeah, even a Rose Aranha who rarely strikes out.
Um, as we've noted, he's been red hot hit a home run this game hit, tons of friends proposed in.
He struck out this man as well.
With two men on, you have to see if Rob Lowe is on into this game.
I I went to a Dodger game once and sat right next to Rob Lowe, so it was pretty cool.
Yeah, he's awesome.
Really funny, really funny.
I haven't seen a lot of Rob Lowe recently.
I even went to take my senior portrait, and Rob Lowe took his portrait at the place I went to, so there was like a wall of fame.
So a lot of Rob lower in my life recently.
Very weird, I'm sure.
Rob Lowe when he heard Braden lower on the loudspeaker on the P A announcer.
He's saying that right, because there's a Brandon Loewen innate low.
But Nate Lows on the postseason roster for Tampa is Chris Taylor steps in, watches, ball one low and going back to that David freeze picture that you just saw then what a world Siri's against, I believe Texas, right? That was an incredible Siri's amazing performance by David.
For 10 Taylor hits this one into left field.
The Dodgers have their first hit and first base runner of the night It is Chris Taylor from the bottom of the order now.
A. J. Pollock, the left fielder.
Tonight, Chris Taylor is usually plays either left or second, but it is.
Pollack who got the call tonight and left is all like one perform in this Siri's.
That curveball hung in there.
So Choi holds on Taylor at first base.
Now there were 12 in the first inning and 12 in the second inning.
First pitch in for strike, one the outside corner and runner on first is Taylor.
After the leadoff single second pitch, he suffering Blakes now Blake Snell.
We'll just toss one back lightly to Troy.
Check on Taylor.
Out of curiosity, Who's the biggest fan favorite at the Trop? Tropicana Field? Is it G man toy? It probably.
Usually it's probably cure Mayer with the girls, but Troy probably to the general, is the old one.
Taylor are Pollock will file this one off.
Taylor has got some speed.
So it's good that he checked.
He checked in on him at first base.
Just let him know.
You know I'm there.
I see you always good to check in.
Snell will throw back again.
But this light throws doesn't really wanna waste any of that throwing arm on pic offs.
Brendan Loud playing a little bit his position.
Go to Pollak, fouls that one off the backstop.
He'll stay in there.
Oh, to it remains Blake Snell taking a while now, he We'll look back at first.
He'll step off, and so will a J Pollock or mhm long sequence of nothing there.
Brendan Loud, still playing just to the right of bag number two, as Snell will throw back the first again, that's the third time.
Yeah, this polecat bat Snell has just lobbed onto Choi.
Let's see what Snell does here.
He checks on Chris Taylor.
That's a bull outside.
Taylor's definitely taking up a lot of Snell's head right now.
The chances go up significantly when you have a runner in scoring position and nobody out compared to just a runner on first.
And I like this shift on Pollack Pollack.
It's a majority of his, um, majority of where he hits it is to third in shortstop majorities.
I like the ship a lot.
12 Pollock rips.
This one is topped by Joey Wendell.
Beautiful play in the hot corner from Joey Wendell for the first out in the bottom half of the inning.
It was a nice ripped from Pollock, and staying put at first base is Taylor.
Joey Wendell played that one perfectly.
Flashing the leather.
Now we go to the nine hitter catcher Austin Barnes.
That's in for strike 1 95.
Upper right hand corner of the strike zone No. One.
This is a closed roof in Arlington tonight.
It's in them mid to upper forties.
Every, 39 outside, 74 inside.
I wasn't too bad, considering I'm not older than I thought it would be in Texas at the moment.
But you know it is.
Seasons are changing, and it's a good thing the Cowboys playing doors as well.
But I don't think they wanna play in any venue right now is or play it out.
Delivers Theo one.
Barnes takes strike two.
Our Barnes's and crazy about that call.
Or maybe he was just making small talk.
Snell's 02 pitches swung on grounded third.
Wendell charges throw the first on the run.
Choi was off the bag but came off to make the tag in a great play from Wendell for the second out.
But the runner on second now, Chris Taylor, did advance.
Go back to the top of the order. Mookie Betts.
This is a situation, or you could definitely come out of this slump.
He's had the two straight plays.
Go to Joey Wendell.
That is a tough throw to make the fact that he just got it in the air on the run.
That's all you gotta do.
Choi knows what he's doing at first base, plus the fact that Barnes was pretty well, oh, out of the baseline, it looks like not sure what He was not sure what he was trying to pull their, but Taylor does advance to second, and a single in the outfield from bets will score. Taylor.
Let's take strike one again.
Upper right hand corner.
That's where Snell hit, painting the corners early on that struck out in his first at bat on five pitches, snow through 12 in the 1st 12 in the second.
He's thrown 11 in this inning.
If he gets bets here, would be the perfect 12 12 12 through three.
Sure, that's never happened in World Series history.
Snell looks at second twice the 01 fastball high.
Mookie Betts is Facebook's Blake Snell quite a bit throughout his career, especially when he's with the Boston Red Sox and the A L East.
Something interesting about Mookie, I remember him saying earlier today Came out.
I thought I was going to be a Red Sox for life.
Now on with the daughters signed a humongous, humongous, um extended contract, one of the biggest in MLB history behind Mike Trout's 430 million.
I think it was $530 million.
12 year contract.
The 11 Mookie Betts takes well to stop by Zunino on the low curveball.
Chris Taylor stays put it.
Second ball bounces just behind home plate.
It's easier for us and you know to stop Taylor. Tasty. Good.
Leadoff second, 2 to 1 in for strike two right down the middle of 95.
Fastball in the county squared.
If Corey Seager on deck, who's a big home run hitter, smell the to to cut the miss.
He got bets again. Mookie Betts.
So for two with two strikeouts and Blakes now has thrown three shutout innings in style.
Mookie Betts swings under that one.
Do up for Tampa Bay in the top half of any Number four.
It will be Williard amiss.
Or excuse me, Wendell Adamis and Cure Meyer and Blake Snell.
Every single out that has been recorded, besides to out specifically that dribbler off of Max Muncey's bat have been strikeouts.
Just got We've got a important email, C.
Yeah, no problem.
Your unit three exam score will be reinstated.
Developing story in my world.
Joey Wendelin Adamis, both struck out on their first at bat, Will be the first to headers to face whoever is pitching for Los Angeles.
Roberts pulled Dylan Floro after striking out of Rosa Rain on three pitches.
And then he put in Alex would.
And then I'm just looking up.
You know, the Rays pitching staff and usually pitchers air around 6364 even 65 at times.
But when I'm looking at, you know some of the pictures on the Tampa Bay Rays, it's kind of incredible.
You see Blake still at 65 Charlie Morton at 66 and Tyler Glass now at 68.
So tall pitching staff, including Ryan Ryan.
You're at 65 Well, and if you see Aaron Slager C is also about 6 10.
He's not on the world.
Siri's roster, but he is the tallest player in MLB right now.
Also played his college baseball.
Indiana University is a Hoosier.
Solid three innings.
He's thrown under 40 pitches.
Now it's Alex would still on the mound for Los Angeles.
First pitch toe.
Wendell right in there for strike one.
Joey Wendell swings with the second pitch line right to Justin Turner.
Joey Wendell made a catch on a line out the bottom half of the third.
Now Justin Turner does it to Joey Wendell.
Here's Willy, a Domus at a tough go at the plate in the playoffs and a Dominus one.
You know, one thing that I'm really noticing about him is he's not a gap to gap hitter.
He's just a big, you know, Pull it.
Pull, approach, you know, hitter, somebody that's just trying to pull the ball for a home run.
He's gotta be a gap to gap hitter, somebody to try to get on base.
That's something I think you should really learn.
How toe do Um, Anatomist took strike one and then fouled off the next one and the 02 a domus for the chopper.
Foul cash played in the Little League world.
Here's the 02 Domus swing and a miss at a high fastball.
He's over two with two K's.
Alex would his second strikeout of the night so would quickly retires Wendell in the Dominus. Now it's care.
Meyer, who doubled in his first at bat but was stranded at second in any number two cash, was, is the first.
Oh, now again, Alex could with the quick pitch to cure Meyer, Alex Wood is just really interrupting everything.
But wait till while for that C 01 care, Meyer swings and fouls this.
I've never seen anything like this.
The intensity from Alex would the quickness there's no time for they can't imagine what Kevin Cash was doing over there with looking at the lineup card after that.
A Dominus miserable at that Oprah to with two case tonight.
So, yeah, we'll see if he gets out of that lineup.
Jim, A cure Meyer fouls off Theo, too, and now time for Alex would to deliver another quick pitch.
Pierre Meyer cutting the minutes.
Alex Wood is dominant, so care Meyer strikes out on three pitches.
Quick, top of the fourth, and now Blake Snell returns to the hill for Tampa Bay.
It's the 234 hitters do up for the Dodgers.
Seeger Turner Month.
See Seeger and Turner both struck out in the first standing, and then months he It's a lead off the bottom of the second, a little tapper in front where Blake Snell through it the first.
We go to the bottom of the fourth quick game so far.
Low scoring now. Kevin Cash.
The only human in the history of baseball to play in the Little League world.
Siri's a College World Series and now manage a world.
Siri's played his college ball up in Tallahassee with the Florida State Seminoles.
I say up in Tallahassee from where I am, and it's not not the football town it used to be, but did get a big win over U.
A few weeks ago.
Here's a fun fact right here for new Tampa Bay Rays fans.
Five of the last six teams down 32 in the World Series of Gone to Force a Game seven.
So that's a good trend for the race tonight.
Let's see if they could can continue on with that trend.
By the way, G Man Choi is now the heaviest leadoff hitter in postseason history of £260.
The previous high for World Series game was Benny Agbayani at 2 25 in 2000, and the previous time for any postseason game in general was actually former Tampa Bay Ray, who was a big piece last year.
Obviously, you'll Garcia weighing 2 50 for the Brewers earlier this month in the 2020 postseason.
So G Man Choi making history Not necessarily a good thing, not necessarily a bad thing.
