Dodgers are a smaller favorite over the Rays in Game 2 than they were in Game 1
Wed, Oct 21st 9:02am EDT
The Dodgers are favorites in Game 2 despite what appears a pitching mismatch in Tampa Bay's favor. Los Angeles is sending Tony Gonsolin to the mound, and it is anyone's guess whether he will just be used for a couple innings in an opener-type role or if manager Dave Roberts will try and extend him for four or five innings. Either way, Gonsolin has been roughed up for seven runs over 6.1 innings in two combined appearances this postseason. The Rays will counter with lefty Blake Snell who has pitched to a 3.96 ERA in four starts this postseason. The Rays are 2-2 in Snell's four postseason starts.
