Tony Gonsolin will start for the Dodgers in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday versus the Rays.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts made that announcement after Tuesday night's 8-3 Game 1 win. Gonsolin struggled as a spot starter for Clayton Kershaw in Game 2 of the NLCS against the Braves and also got roughed up in relief in NLCS Game 7, so he figures to face a possible quick hook on Wednesday. Julio Urias and Dustin May will apparently be available to piggyback. Walker Buehler is on tap for World Series Game 3.

Max Muncy finished 2-for-4 with a walk, two RBI, and two runs scored in the Dodgers' World Series Game 1 defeat of the Rays on Tuesday.
Muncy took a grounder to the face during pregame warmups, but he brushed it off and drew his 16th walk of the 2020 postseason in the bottom of the fourth inning just before teammate Cody Bellinger yanked a two-run homer to open the night's scoring. Muncy then tallied an RBI on a fielder's choice in the bottom of the fifth inning and drove a run-scoring double to the fence in right-center field in the bottom of the sixth.

K. Kiermaier - CF
Kevin Kiermaier hit a solo homer in the Rays' World Series Game 1 loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Kiermaier's fifth-inning shot to right off a hanging Clayton Kershaw slider gave the Rays their first run of the night and snapped a stretch of 13 consecutive outs by Tampa Bay hitters. It was the center fielder's first hit since he took a pitch off his left wrist in Game 3 of the ALCS against the Astros. Kiermaier also added an RBI single in the top of the eighth inning Tuesday at Globe Life Field, though the Rays ultimately fell 8-3.

Cody Bellinger homered Tuesday as the Dodgers beat the Rays in Game 1 of the World Series.
It was a one-out two-run homer to center field in the bottom of the fourth inning, off a first-pitch 98.2 mph down-and-in fastball from Rays starter Tyler Glasnow. That is the fastest pitch that Bellinger has turned around for a home run in his four-year major league career, and he celebrated by foot-tapping his teammates rather than going with the hybrid jump-high-five move that caused him to temporarily dislocate his shoulder in Game 7 of the NLCS against the Braves. Bellinger is the second player ever to hit a go-ahead homer in Game 7 of an LCS and another go-ahead homer in Game 1 of a World Series. The other: David Ortiz in 2004.

Tyler Glasnow was charged with six earned runs over 4 1/3 innings as the Rays lost Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday versus the Dodgers.
Glasnow tallied five strikeouts over three scoreless frames to begin the outing, but he served up a two-run homer to Cody Bellinger in the bottom of the fourth and then the wheels fell off completely in the bottom of the fifth. The lanky right-hander wound up throwing a career-high 112 pitches while issuing six total walks and surrendering three hits. 54 of those 112 pitches were balls -- the most balls by any pitcher in any game this year, regular season or postseason. Glasnow is the first pitcher with six-plus walks in a World Series game since Edwin Jackson walked seven as a member of the Cardinals in Game 4 of the 2011 World Series.

Clayton Kershaw allowed just one run and struck out eight batters over six scoreless innings in the Dodgers’ World Series Game 1 win over the Rays on Tuesday.
Kershaw entered the Game 1 outing with a career 4.31 ERA in the postseason and a career 5.40 ERA in the World Series, but he bucked the narrative and turned in a start worthy of his overall Hall of Fame credentials. The only run against him came on a fifth-inning solo homer by Kevin Kiermaier, and he surrendered just one other hit (and one total walk) across his dominant and efficient 78-pitch performance. Kershaw induced a swing-and-miss rate of 50 percent (19 misses on 38 swings), the best of his career. And he probably could have tried for seven, eight, or perhaps even nine innings had the Dodgers not taken a comfortable 8-1 lead in the bottom of the sixth. It was just the second of Kershaw's 29 career postseason starts in which the Dodgers’ offense delivered eight or more runs of support by the time of his departure.

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with a homer, two stolen bases, and two runs scored in the Dodgers' 8-3 World Series Game 1 victory over the Rays on Tuesday.
Betts swiped second and third base after drawing a leadoff walk in what became a four-run bottom of the fifth inning for Los Angeles and then led off the bottom of the sixth with a first-pitch, opposite-field homer to right off Rays left-hander Josh Fleming. It was Betts’ first home run against a lefty in 2020, and it gave the Dodgers a 7-1 lead. He also added a 107.5 mph single in the bottom of the eighth inning for his hardest-struck base hit of the year. Betts is the first player ever to homer, steal two bases, and score two runs in a World Series game.

Max Muncy (head) told FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal that he is "fine" for Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night against the Rays.
Rosenthal provided that update live on MLB Network. Muncy took a ground ball to the face, just below his right eye, while participating in infield practice on Tuesday evening at Globe Life Field, but he got treatment and then popped back out of the clubhouse for a full round of batting practice. The 30-year-old slugger will start at first base and hit cleanup in World Series Game 1 versus the Rays and right-hander Tyler Glasnow.
