Cody Bellinger and Mookie Betts put on a show in Game 1 of the World Series between the Dodgers and Rays, providing home runs, stolen bases and highlight-reel catches.
Their contributions in LA’s 8-3 win demonstrated why the club is going to be so difficult for Tampa Bay to beat four out of seven times. They combined to go 3 for 8 with two home runs, two stolen bases and a walk. Bellinger robbed a home run in the ninth inning to cap the display.
The Rays will trot out Blake Snell in Game 2 on Wednesday, hoping to limit a Dodgers lineup that on paper dwarfs what they have to offer. Snell holds a 3.20 ERA this postseason and is certainly capable of tossing a scoreless five innings.

Both LA and Tampa Bay have well-rested bullpens in terms of late-inning options heading into Game 2; the wide margin in Game 1 kept top relievers from entering.
That likely means quick hooks for Snell and projected Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin.
