With their Game 1 win, the Los Angeles Dodgers have seized control of the World Series against the Tampa Bay Rays at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.
The Dodgers took Game 1 8-3 on Tuesday night behind Clayton Kershaw's strong start and home runs from Mookie Betts and Cody Bellinger. Betts, acquired from the Boston Red Sox in an offseason trade, also stole two bases in the game.
The Rays, who struggled with timely hitting in the American League Championship Series, went 2-for-5 with runners in scoring position in Game 1, but will need to create more opportunities as the series moves forward.
