What a finish.

The announcers talking about how the Dodgers has their bullpen set up better. But Jansen is not good any more. The two strike calls he got against Phillips that were balls worked against him in the end.

Dodgers have scored 25 runs in four games. Have hit the Rays starters and their better bullpen guys. And yet they are tied against the light hitting Rays. Amazing.

But the LA catcher never caught the ball - just as bad an error as the LA centerfielder

It’s like Jim Fregosi keeping going to Mitch Williams.

one of the best WS games I've seen.  All those innings with runs scoring and lead shifting, then the ending

TBH, the stakes were quite the same, but Game 6 of the 75 WS and 86 WS had that sort of shifts of momentum, but this I think had more lead changes

This game, particularly the ending, makes me think MLB has staged the World Series in order to increase viewership & tv/ad revenue

Maybe the viewership will pick up. I think most people expected a Dodgers rout.

Heard someone say one of the runners could have been out if they were enforcing the base paths rules like they did on Trea Turner last year

Me too.  But it's better for baseball if those calls are always safe.

Wow, that was a ballsy move.  I kind of think he made it.  Weird no challenge.  What's the call if they tag the helmet as it leaves the head?

Looked like he tug the hand just before it got there.
