Rays 6 - Dodgers 4 (Series Tied 1-1)
The Dodgers comeback efforts came up short Wednesday night as Tampa Bay tied the series up. After the Rays took a commanding 5-0 lead in the top half of the fifth, the Dodgers responded in the bottom half. Chris Taylor (YD ’11) delivered with a two-run home run to cut the lead to 5-2. Will Smith (Brewster ’15) would add a solo home run in the sixth inning for Los Angeles. The Rays bullpen however was able to protect the lead, including three combined innings of relief from Peter Fairbanks (Hyannis ‘13/’14) and Aaron Loup (Falmouth ’08.) Thursday will be an off-day for the teams before they resume with Game 3 Friday night. Walker Buehler (YD ’14) will take the mound for Los Angeles in the pivotal game.
