World Series Top Plays: Game 2

October 21, 2020

Game 2 of the 2020 World Series featured another bevy of blasts, a top-notch pitching performance in fewer than five innings, and the Tampa Bay Rays evening up the Fall Classic at 1-1.

Here are the top plays from Game 2 of the 2020 World Series between the Rays and Los Angeles Dodgers.

Lowe wastes little time 

Rays second baseman Brandon Lowe smoked a home run off of the Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin with a 3-1 count in the first inning for his second homer and third RBI of the postseason.

Tampa Bay had their first lead of the series, and in due time, just their second ever World Series victory.

Snell dealing early

The Rays' Blake Snell brought his filthiest stuff in Game 2, helping lead Tampa Bay to the W.

Snell struck out nine through four and two-thirds innings, including back-to-back strikeouts of Max Muncy and Will Smith.

Fan has a perfect catch

A down the line foul ball from the Rays' Manuel Margot will surely make quite the souvenir.

Wendle finds the gap

With two outs in the top of the fourth, Tampa Bay second baseman Joey Wendle sent home two with a sharp-line drive into right-center field.

Lowe layers it on

Lowe blasted his second homer of the night in the fourth inning.

Taylor spoils Snell's no-hitter

Dodgers shortstop Chris Taylor gets the Dodgers' first hit of the game with a two-run, 398-foot homer on a 2-1 count, cutting the Rays' lead to 5-2.

Smith slices Rays' lead

A solo blast into left field in the sixth inning from LA's Will Smith made it 6-3.

And with it, Smith was the youngest catcher to homer in the World Series since the Kansas City Royals' Salvador Perez in 2014.

Seager sends it deep

Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager went deep in the bottom of the eighth, cutting Tampa Bay's lead to 6-4. 

Unfortunately for the Dodgers, it wasn't enough, as the Rays evened the series at 1-1. Game 3 is on Friday.
