Rays Edge Out Dodgers In Thrilling Game 4

The Tampa Bay Rays have evened the World Series 2-2 after a wild 9th inning that was capped off by a game winning single by Brett Phillips.

Tampa Bay avoided the daunting 3-1 deficit while eclipsing their record for wins in a world series after winning just one game against Philadelphia Phillies.

Game 4 saw both teams hit a combined 25 hits which was well above the previous peak of 16 hits in game 1 of the series.

L.A superstars Mookie Betts and Cody Bellinger were held hitless throughout the match, going for a whopping 0-9.

The game was a tight knit contest with a run being scored each inning excluding the 2nd. It wasn’t until the 9th when the Rays made their strike and changed the course of the series.

Kevin Kiermaier hit a broke bat blooper to make his way to first after Kenley Jansen had recorded the first out.

Jansen proceeded to walk Randy Arozarena who has been scorching all postseason. It was then the unlikeliest of heroes in Brett Phillips who arrived.

Phillips hit a base hit down to center. Kiermaier was able to score and tie the game but a series of errors allowed Randy Arozarena to make his way home despite stumbling on the 3rd base to home plate line.

The Dodgers were mere seconds away from securing a 3-1 lead with a chance to close out the Rays but they added game 4 to their long list of postseason blunders.

Tyler Glasnow of Tampa Bay and Claytom Kershaw of L.A are on the mound for game 5 this Sunday, where both teams look to secure a series clinching 3-2 lead.
