Dodgers Hold off Rays, Take 3-2 Series Lead

Video Duration:

It wasn't the smoothest ride for the Dodges, but the favorites took Game 5 over the Rays, 4-2. Dave Roberts and company move to within a game of the World Series title. Clayton Kershaw wasn't as dominant as he was in Game 1, but was spotted a 3-0 lead he wouldn't relinquish over 5 2/3 innings of work, including six strikeouts to sit atop the MLB postseason list with 207 for his career. Roberts notably shook-up the bullpen over the final three innings, including opting for Blake Treinen for the save over Kenley Jansen.
