    Dodgers have to be tight as hell after last night. Jansen may be done as a closer period. You have to think tonight's game is a legacy game for Kershaw. Save for last time he hasn't had a lot of success in the post-season. Not all of it was his fault but if he doesn't pitch well tonight his legacy may be as a great regular season pitcher but a dud in the post-season. But Clemens and Maddox weren't great post-season pitchers and their legacies are secure. But the Dodgers haven't won a title with Kershaw.

    Great situational hitting (not over swinging) by Tampa that last inning. I hope the team I am fond of can learn from this.

    Last night I looked at the box score and a single error was given to Taylor. This morning it had been changed to Smith. Apparently, the official scorer reasoned that a single error could be awarded if Arozarena only advanced one base. My question is this. Shouldn't there have been two errors awarded? Arozarena would not have attempted to score if Taylor had fielded the ball cleanly. But subsequently, Arozarena fell and would have been out or at least in a pickle if Smith had fielded the throw cleanly. Further, if Arozarena had been in a rundown and a player had thrown wildly allowing him to score, there clearly would have been another error awarded. I think two errors are in order.

    4 misplays in total
    1) Taylor kick
    2) Muncy wide throw
    3) Smith wiff
    4) Jensen not backing up play
    Huh? Huh-uh. Oh yeah, uh-huh.

    In times of stress, players often summon their inner little leaguers.

    The big question tonight is whether Playoff Kershaw makes a reappearance.

    Seager havoc creates a run in the first.

    Some wildness by Glasnow and good Dodger base running makes it 2-0 Dodgers quickly.


    Rays can get to Kershaw. We’ll see how it plays out.

    3-0 Dodgers now on a Joc Pederson blast.


    Glasnow looking not quite ready for prime time.

    Lol umpire just gave Kershaw a strike call about a foot above the zone. Struck Wendle out.

    Good god we need automated balls and strikes.
