Game One. First half a little bored since there weren’t runs for either of the teams. The first two runs were for Bellinger who did a home run with one in base putting the score 2-0 in favor of the Dodgers. In the top of the 5th, Kevin Kiermaier made a solo home run, the score is 2-1. At the bottom of the 5th Mookie Betts made a run. Dodgers take a three to one lead. Smith, Taylor, and Hernández runs batted in, making the Dodgers continue with a 6-1 lead. Mookie Betts made a solo home run, the score is 7-1. After that, Justin Turner made the eighth run of the Dodgers in this game (8-1). In the 7th inning, Tampa wakes up. Brosseau and Kiermaier runs batted in one run each of them, but it was too late. Dodgers won 8-3.

Game Two. Tampa started very well. In the 11 pitch, Brandon Lowe made a solo home run. Rays were 1-0 leading. Top of the 4th, Wendle makes a double, allowing two more runs for Tampa (3-0). 

In the next inning, Brandon Lowe made his second home run of the night, but there was a player in the base. Rays continued the lead 5-0. Five innings and the Dodgers didn’t have runs. Taylor finally made a home run with a player in base putting the score 5-2. Choi steals the base to the home plate and the play was well planned. Tampa still leads 6-2. Bottom of the 6th, Smith with a fly ball to left field scores a solo home run (6-3). Corey does the same thing, another fly ball home run. The score ends 6-4 Tampa winning.

Game Three. Justin Turner made a home run in the first inning (1-0). At the bottom of the 3rd Seager and Turner scores a run thanks to Muncy. 

Dodgers lead 3-0. Cody Bellinger scores the fourth run, and Pederson the fifth (5-0). In game three Dodgers didn’t make a run in the first half, this time the same thing happened, but with the Rays. Adames’s batting broke the pattern putting the score 5-1. Austin Barnes made his first home run of the postseason and the Dodgers take a 6-1 lead. The last run was a solo home run for Arozarena. The game ended 6-2 winning the Dodgers.

Game Four. This was one of the greatest World Series games ever. 

Justin Turner did it again, a home run in the first inning (1-0). The second run for the team was a Corey Seager solo home run (2-0). Arozarena in the bottom of the fourth not only made a home run (2-1), but outfielder set the record for most home runs ever hit in a single postseason. Seager does the third run (3-1). The outfielder Hunter Renfroe made another solo home run, and the score is (3-2). At the top of the 6th, Kike Hernández delivers a single to left and the Dodgers take a 4-2 lead. Lowe swings a fly ball to center field making a three-run home.

The Rays finally take the lead in the game 5-4. In the next inning, Kevin Kiermaier does a solo home run, Tampa still leading the game 6-4. Corey Seager do it again, drives in two- runs and Los Angeles takes the lead again 7-6. And now the most amazing part of the night. Reserve outfielder Brett Phillips notched a game-tying single in the ninth off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, and Randy Arozarena was also able to score on an error by center fielder Chris Taylor and then a mishandled throw by L.A. catcher Will Smith, who was also later charged with an error. The series is tied 2-2 after an unreal ending.

Game Five. In the 10 pitchings, the shortstop Corey Seager’s hitting allowed a run (1-0). The same thing happened again, but with Bellinger this time. Dodgers still leading the game 2-0. In the second inning, Joc Pederson made a solo home run(3-0), making the Rays pitcher not looking too good. Bottom of the third, Kermaier makes a run, putting the score 3-1. Thanks to Arozarena’s batting, Diaz makes another run (3-2). Max Muncy made a home run, and that was the last run of the game. 

The score end 4-2. Dodgers win the fifth game.
