Tampa Bay ran off the edge on Saturday and won the second World Series 4: 2 victory over Houston’s Astra in the 7th match of the San Diego League Series in San Diego.
The Rays, with the best AL record in the shortened regular season, is 40-20. there was a danger of joining the 2004 The Yankees as the only team in baseball history to lose the top seven in a series after leading 3-0. The Astros achieved one victory and left the Boston Red Sox as the only team to complete such a return.
Tampa Bay’s only previous appearance in the World Series came in 2008, when the Rays dropped to the Philadelphia Phillies in five games. They will meet the winner of the National League Championship Series 7 game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.
Although the Rays had given up games 4, 5 and 6, they had reason to trust their 7-game pioneer Charlie Morton. Morton is the most experienced team player with 13 seasons in the main event. He won Game 7 of the ALCS and World Series 2017. – when with Astra, from all teams.
He looked sharp on Saturday, working five and two-thirds, and allowing two to hit and six. Randy ArozarenaThe October star, the sporty October star, knocked out two-race player Lance McCullers Jr. in his first run, giving him the seventh turn of the home season – the most rookie.
Catcher Mike Zunino added a solo solo in the second inning and made a sacrifice in the sixth run. This was very important after Astros scored twice in the eighth Carlos Correa single.
The Rays also took part in the division series winners’ game, after the removal of the Yankees, despite the huge pay gap. The Yankees spend more on player pay than any other team, and the Rays took 28th place out of 30 clubs this year, overtaking only Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
However, they thrive on having a deep list of players with specific strengths, masterfully used by manager Kevin Cashas, who often changes rankings and pitchers to get the right match. Rays’ airtight defense repeatedly robbed Astra’s shots at the beginning of the series, and their timely shots gave them enough insult to win.
Rays’ victory preserves the unpleasant scene of Major League Baseball when Astros is met at a league show event. Astros won the World Series in 2017, but an MLB survey in January confirmed it players stole signals from opposing catchers from a TV monitor in home games during the regular season and after the season, warning strikers to an approaching pitch by knocking the trash near the bottom.
The scandal outraged many fans and players, and although Astra’s organization was fined and drafted – and the former CEO and manager were suspended and then fired, Astra’s players were not penalized for agreeing to work with MLB. research.
They made it to the extended season despite a regular season record of 29-31, but could not beat the Rays and their former teammate Morton.
