bad news: the Rays might have to win this 1-0
good news: with Snell pitching like this and a refreshed pen they actually have a chance to shut out the Dodgers tonight

The info about his ERA going way up after the 3rd inning is true, but normally his pitch count is much higher. He didn’t have this kind of efficiency at all during regular season. Looks like his 2018 stuff.

When Pettitte won a 1-0 game over Smoltz in Game 5 of the 1996 WS, all of a sudden he got a rep as a big game pitcher. This is the same situation.

I, and many other kids, went trick or treating at the hodges residence on Bedford avenue in 1969. Mrs. Hodges gave us candy while we tried to peer into the house.
As we crossed the street afterward, Gil himself came running out of the house and hopped into a car parked in front as people cheered.

The great Gil Hodges, charter member of the Boys of Summer. He died far too young.

WTF is smoltz talking about? Why would the dodgers being ahead in the series make Buehler any less anxious or whatever than Morton?

I don’t think you can pull him yet. If he gives up a a couple base runners, he’s out. If he just gives up one base runner, that’s why Cash gets big bucks.
