Rays down Dodgers behind Lowe’s breakout performance

683

Going into last night’s Game 2 of the World Series, Tampa Bay’s Brandon Lowe was hitting just .107 in the postseason. He was 6-for-56 and struggling. Manager Kevin Cash was even questioned about leaving him in the No. 2 spot in the lineup. Cash simply said, “I’m going with my guy.”

Going with his guy certainly paid off last night as Lowe smashed home runs in the 1st and 5th innings, driving in three runs and helping Tampa Bay even the Series at 1-game apiece by downing the Dodgers 6-to-4.

Lowe says it felt great to get the bat on the ball for a change…

Lowe’s offensive onslaught backed up a solid game on the mound by Blake Snell. The left-hander threw 4-and-2/3rds innings of 2-run ball with 9-strikeouts. Snell says they had a good plan going into the game…

Manuel Margot collected a couple of hits while Joey Wendle drove in three runs for Tampa Bay. Manager Kevin Cash was proud of his guys all the way around…

Both teams will have a day off to think about Game 3, which will be tomorrow night at 5:08 on FOX as Walker Buehler goes for Los Angeles against Tampa Bay’s Charlie Morton.
