Julio Urias will begin the top of the ninth, with the Dodgers up two runs, but Blake Treinen has begun to warm up. The bottom half of the Rays' lineup awaits.

Five scoreless innings for Blake Snell, who has struck out nine batters, has allowed one baserunner, has thrown 69 pitches and has been nothing short of dominant. But the Dodgers trail by only a run. The Rays' offense is letting them hang around.

Dave Roberts was hoping for a five- to six-inning start from Tony Gonsolin tonight. It began with a high-stress, 25-pitch first inning that saw Alex Wood warm up. Gonsolin was fortunate to get out of it with only one run.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Dave Roberts said yesterday that Tony Gonsolin, pitching on a normal five-day schedule for the first time all month, will function as a traditional starting pitcher tonight. But Rays manager Kevin Cash is prepared for him to be much less than that. Everyone except Walker Buehler, Clayton Kershaw and Julio Urias are available out of the Dodgers' bullpen.

The Dodgers are one win away from the championship, in a Texas ballpark they have claimed as their own. It sounded like this ...

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Clayton Kershaw had two on, none out and only a one-run lead in the fourth. He has since retired five consecutive batters (and one highly aggressive baserunner). He's through 5 with 83 pitches, and the Dodgers have a 4-2 lead.

Max Muncy is locked in in a way he hasn't been all season. That homer was his first in 11 days, but he's now batting .412/.545/.647 in the World Series.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Clayton Kershaw needed 50 pitches to get the first 9 outs, and it's going to be really interesting to see how Dave Roberts pieces this game together. Blake Treinen, Brusdar Graterol and Kenley Jansen have appeared in the last two, and Pedro Baez faced 7 batters last night. Walker Buehler, Tony Gonsolin and Dustin May might all be options.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

A very rare misjudgment from Mookie Betts, trying to cut the ball off rather than playing it off the wall and ultimately giving Yandy Diaz an extra base with a triple.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Tyler Glasnow has set a World Series record with three wild pitches in this game, and he has only completed three innings. The average exit velocity against him tonight is 102.8 mph. With an off day tomorrow, I can't imagine he'll face Mookie Betts again.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Corey Seager has 19 RBIs this postseason. The only man with more: David Freese, with 21 in 2011.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dodgers pieced together a couple of runs and forced Tyler Glasnow to throw 34 pitches less than 20 hours after one of the worst losses in World Series history. Probably important.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Corey Seager said today that he makes it a point to forget what happens in games as soon as he leaves the field. He believed the team was operating similarly coming off Game 4. Then his 22nd hit in 62 at-bats this postseason gave the Dodgers an immediate 1-0 lead.
