After Brandon Lowe busted out in Game 2 of the World Series, the Rays and Dodgers are tied deep in the heart of Texas.

“Sometimes guys, you’ve got to allow them to go through some tough patches,” manager Kevin Cash said. “He will go quiet for a little while, but he can get as hot as anybody in baseball.”

Lowe hit two home runs to the opposite field, Tampa Bay’s bullpen held on late and the Rays beat Los Angeles 6-4 on Wednesday night.

After an off day, Game 3 in the best-of-seven Series matches two big-game pitchers starting on extra rest tonight. Charlie Morton goes for the Rays against Walker Buehler.

Los Angeles was the “home team” for the first two games but will bat first in the next three.
