Seahawks lose to Arizona in colossal collapse in the desert

520

The Seahawks squandered an opportunity in the desert and fell in overtime to Arizona 37-34 last night. Seattle gave up 13-point leads twice in the game as the Cardinals came back to tie it on Zane Gonzalez’s 44-yard field goal to send it into overtime and then won it on Gonzalez’s 48-yard kick in the extra session.

Of course, the play of the game and maybe the play of the year came midway through the second quarter. Seattle was driving at the Arizona three-yard line when Russell Wilson tried a pass to the right sideline to Chris Carson. The ball was intercepted by Budda Baker and it looked like he’d return it 98-yards for a pic-6. But somehow, D.K. Metcalf chase him down and tackled him at the Seahawk’s 8-yard line.

Coach Carroll says it showed the heart and speed of his second-year wide receiver…

Dodgers down Rays 4-2 and are a game away from World Series Title

Los Angeles scored two-runs in the first inning with two outs on RBI-singles by Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger. They made it 3-nothing in the second on a solo home run by Joc Pederson.

The Rays closed the gap in the 3rd on an RBI-triple by Yandy Diaz and RBI-single by Randy Arozarena. But it was all Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers from there as Max Muncy added an insurance solo homer in the 5th.

Kershaw earned his second win of the Series, going 5-and-2/3rds, allowing 2-runs on 5-hits with 6-strikeouts and 2-walks. He said it felt good to help his team get the win. Kershaw surpassed Justin Verlander on the all-time strikeouts list for post-season pitcher. His bullpen of May, Gonzalez and Teinen held Tampa Bay scoreless the rest of the way to preserve the victory.
L-A manager Dave Roberts was particularly pleased with how his bullpen came through.

The two teams will have a day-off today before resuming the series with Game 6 tomorrow night at 5:08 when Blake Snell takes the ball for Tampa Bay against the Dodger’s Tony Gonsolin. You can watch all the action on FOX.
