Rays Win Game 4 Via Costly Dodgers Error(s)

Jonathan Grant | October 25th, 2020

Sometimes, in sports, it’s better to be lucky than good. The Tampa Bay Rays were both good and lucky on Saturday night as they evened up the World Series with the Los Angeles Dodgers at two games apiece. Out of the gate, it looked like the Dodgers were going to run off and leave the Rays, with Justin Turner hitting an early solo home run and then Corey Seagar doing the same. Randy Arozarena reduced the deficit by half in the fourth inning, and from there the real fun started as both teams traded run back and forth for a while.

It was his ninth homer of the postseason, and he would not stop playing a role in the outcome of this one. In the seventh, the Rays tied the game up at six apiece only to see the Dodgers ease back ahead via Seagar’s single. That had them up 7-6 going into the ninth, where everything fell apart. With two outs and two strike, Brett Phillips, an unsung player for even the Rays, singled into center. The ball was booted, allowing one run to get in. Arozarena, the undoubted MVP of this whole run, never stopped once he saw that, having started from first base, and when the ball eventually came in, it looked like he was going to be dead to rights. However, catcher Will Smith also booted the ball, allowing Arozarena to score and handing the Rays an 8-7 win. Sometimes it takes some luck, doesn’t it? The series is now tied at 2-2 heading into a crucial Game 5 to come on Sunday night.
