Home Sports Top Sports Kershaw hands Dodgers 3-2 World Series lead. He took the mound on Sunday (Monday in Manila) with the Los Angeles Dodgers shaken, and Kershaw steadied his team with a gritty performance, plus one particular delivery home that will long be remembered.

The Dodgers and Rays were looking to make things interesting on Saturday night in Arlington. Los Angeles was going into this one fighting for a big lead in the World Series while Tampa Bay was doing everything they could do even We might just have a World Series CLASSIC on our hands tonight!

The LA Dodgers have secured the World Series after taking down the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 6 of the best of seven series.

Today's championship is the seventh in franchise history and the first title won since the Dodgers defeated the Oakland Athletics back in 1988.

With Tampa Bay needing a win to keep the series alive and into a Game 7 decider, things took a turn for the worst when Rays manager Kevin Cash pulled pitcher Blake Snell with his side leading 1-0 in the bottom of the sixth.

The decision was torched by baseball fans and pundits, with widespread disbelief expressed over Cash's match-defining call.

Immediately after Snell was pulled, Mookie Betts stepped up and the Dodgers piled on two runs to turn the game on its head.

Hundreds in Australia to be screened for HIV after testing fiasco

  Hundreds in Australia to be screened for HIV after testing fiasco Officials in Victoria have contacted 243 guests who went through the state's hotel quarantine system and had a finger-prick glucose level test between March 29 and August 20. Used by diabetes sufferers, the devices should not be used by more than one person and Safer Care Victoria has admitted that it has put people at a 'low risk' of contracting several deadly viruses. 'The health of past quarantine residents is our immediate concern, so arranging screening for them is our absolute priority,' Safer Care Victoria CEO Ann Maree Keenan said.

The Dodgers ’ last World Series victory came in 1988, highlighted by Kirk Gibson’s famed home run in Game 1 against the Oakland A’s. This is the first title for the Dodgers under the ownership of a group that includes investors Magic Johnson, producer Peter Guber and Billie Jean King.

Clayton Kershaw wasn’t as dominant in his game 5 start against the Rays, but the Dodgers ace gave the club exactly what was needed after a nightmare the night before. The veteran left-hander tossed 5.2 innings pitched, allowing 5 hits and 2 earned runs while walking 2 and striking out 6 on 85 pitches.

The likes of celebrity sports analyst ESPN's Stephen A Smith led the outcry as the Rays saw the World Series slip away.

The end of a frustrating championship drought for LA — and perhaps just the start for Betts and the Dodgers.

Betts bolted from third for the go-ahead run on Corey Seager's infield grounder in the sixth and led off the eighth with a punctuating homer, and the Dodgers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 in Game 6 to claim their first championship since 1988.

MLB's analytics revolution led to more home runs — but it's striking out with many who love the game

  MLB's analytics revolution led to more home runs — but it's striking out with many who love the game Crash Davis was right: Strikeouts are boring. They're also having a toxic impact on the viewing experience. Having retreated from watching baseball regularly in recent years, particularly since I moved away from an MLB city to one that instead has an NBA team, I watched more this year because of the shortened schedule, the joy of seeing sports return during the COVID-19 pandemic and the Reds’ involvement in the expanded postseason. I was astounded to see how much the strikeout has taken over the game.

The Dodgers had played 5,014 regular season games and were in their 114th postseason game since Orel Hershiser struck out Oakland's Tony Phillips for the final out of the World Series in 1988, the same year veteran lefty Clayton Kershaw — the three-time NL Cy Young Award winner who won Games 1 and 5 of this Series — was born in nearby Dallas.

Kershaw was warming in the bullpen when Julio Urias struck out Willy Adames to end it and ran alongside teammates to celebrate in the infield — many players and coaches still wearing face masks at the end of a season played out amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Los Angeles had come up short in the World Series twice in the previous three years. And Betts was on the other side two years ago with the Boston Red Sox, who before this season traded the 2018 AL MVP to the Dodgers. They later gave him a $365 million, 12-year extension that goes until he turns 40 in 2032.

The Dodgers can finally get their first World Series title since 1988 if they come away with a victory on Tuesday night against the Rays.

Regardless of how this World Series ends, the final at-bat of Game 4 will live on in infamy — long-remembered by one team and not soon forgotten by the other. Rays' Randy Arozarena scores the winning run against Dodgers as his teammates celebrate in Game 4 on Saturday. (Associated Press).

Betts' 3.2-second sprint was just enough to beat the throw by first baseman Ji-Man Choi, pushing Los Angeles ahead 2-1 moments after Rays manager Kevin Cash pulled ace left-hander Blake Snell despite a dominant performance over 5 1/3 innings.

Randy Arozarena, the powerful Tampa Bay rookie, extended his postseason record with his 10th homer in the first off rookie right-hander Tony Gonsolin, the first of seven Dodgers pitchers. The Rays never got another runner past second base as LA's bullpen gave reliever-reliant Tampa Bay a taste of its own medicine.

About 2 1/2 weeks after the Lakers won the NBA title while finishing their season in the NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida, the Dodgers gave Los Angeles another championship in this year when the novel coronavirus pandemic has delayed, shortened and moved around sports seasons.
