  • Jess.

  • I know you said last night.

  • You thought one inning and one inning in particular was the key to the entire game.

  • Yeah, it was that fourth inning and Clayton Kershaw.

  • He struggled with his command in that any walk, the first two batters, and you kind of felt like Oh, no.

  • Is this kind of?

  • Later in the game, when we've seen Clayton Kershaw in the postseason start to lose and he reared back, he was able to get saw off the hands of Joey Wendell to get a pop fly and then the dirty curveball.

  • I mean, this is the Uncle Charlie we know so well from playing Kershaw to get the strikeout that was out number two.

  • And remember, runners were at 1st and 3rd.

  • There was an air this inning, a stolen base.

  • So much had happened.

  • And that's when Manuel Margo tried to steal home.

  • It was looking at, like, millimeters centimeters, most strikeouts, by the way, via the breaking ball in a single postseason by Clayton Kershaw between a slider and the curveball.

  • Just keeping those Rays hitters off balance.

  • But that's still a home, by the way, man Margo and we're talking this.

  • All the things that had to go right for Clayton Kershaw to not throw that ball to the backstop when maximums he started screaming at him that the runner was going to.

  • Not Bach.

  • I feel like the Rays would have rallied and they would have won this game.

  • Why, Why?

  • Why try that steal, though.

  • At that moment that time, I understand.

  • Back to to the runner at third.

  • He's in a long delivery and wind up, and it's you know, why do that at that moment?

  • Cause there's two outs.

  • You got the bottom of your lineup up and this is the race.

  • This is what they do.

  • They catch you off guard.

  • They do scrappy things.

  • And Keyshawn, I get it.

  • He's thrown out at home, so it looks like What's he thinking?

  • So many things have to happen.

  • You see Max Muncy throwing and screaming clean.

  • Krisha was blinded.

  • This the jumped at Margot got and you've got to remember.

  • I mean, Keyshawn, picture that you're standing there, and all of a sudden you're in your delivery mid delivery.

  • Your teammate is screaming at you.

  • You don't practice this.

  • You just heard.

  • It hasn't been successful since 1955 you just don't see it.

  • Kershaw could have stopped to try to get Margo, which would have been a Bach, and now he scores.

  • Or he could have panicked and then chuck that ball into the stands and he scores.

  • Instead.

  • He throws a strike to home and gets him out.

  • Still, by this much, that's why the Rays do it.

  • So many things had to go right for the Dodgers, and they did.

  • Ultimately, that's why they went so Jess.

  • In other words, Kershaw's mental was on point because he did not panic at all.

  • Pressure did not get to him.

  • We saw in Game four and that crazy ninth inning when Chris Taylor boot the ball.

  • Will Smith dropped the ball like pressure is a crazy thing.

  • You guys know this, right?

  • Jay?

  • We'll get this.

  • You guys have played like pressure, makes people get super tight and do things in that moment.

  • More so than his commander is curveball or a slider in that game.

  • The fact that he was able under that kind of pressure, someone screaming you to get the ball home and get that out is what won that game.

  • Speaking of pressure, Blake Snails on the mound for the Rays.

  • Game six.

  • How does he not?

  • How did it raise?

  • Not let the Dodgers close it out.

  • They have to do two things.

  • J.

  • Well, first, I mean, 99 strikeouts isn't gonna hurt.

  • That's what Blake Snell did in Game two.

  • He was ridiculous.

  • He lit up the strike zone.

  • This is what he has to do.

  • Remember, he struggled coming into this world.

  • Siri's why he had 100 plus pitches in like, three innings because he couldn't throw a strike.

  • He's got the dirtiest slider in this postseason, and when he was able to get the Dodgers ahead because he attacked the strikeout, he had nine strikeouts against the Dodgers offense that it's so top tough.

  • He is dirty when he does it, But the biggest thing is, is the Rays have to get the lead early.

  • So when Blake Snell is able to get those strikeouts to keep the Dodgers offense, he hands it off to the bullpen.

  • That's how Rays win ballgames.

  • Jessica Dave Robertson skippers seem to take Kershaw one out too early, versus one out, too late last night.

  • How important is it, though, to self evaluate what you do as a skipper to make sure that you have in the most success with that ace during the postseason.

  • Did you see him arguing to when he was out on the mound and Dave Roberts came out?

  • I was like, Oh, my Oh, no, This this ain't gonna be good.

  • Like this is not gonna be good.

  • And Justin Turner?

  • I loved it by the way boys got his back.

  • Like Justin Turner is yelling at Dave to and you could tell he's like, I know I shouldn't be yelling at my manager right now, but Justin Turner jumped in like Don't do it, Dave.

  • Don't do it.

  • He did it.

  • He pulls him out.

  • But, Keyshawn, you'd always rather it be an out too early than out.

  • Too late.

  • We've seen.

  • That's the narrative for Clayton Kershaw.

  • Why did you run him back out there?

  • Why did you leave them out?

  • Dave Roberts has heard this story too often.

  • They have so many guys and he ended up ultimately playing it perfectly, handing it off Thio each and every one of them.

  • And then ultimately, Blake trying and being able to close it out.

  • Last thing for you, Jess.

  • Even if the Dodgers do win it tomorrow, Okay, Just for my safety here.

  • Just when the Dodgers wrapping up tomorrow.

  • Game number six, I do think.

  • And I just wanna We'd be remiss if we didn't mention every year there's a breakout star of the playoffs, right?

  • A couple years ago, Steve Pearce was the M V p of the world Siris, for goodness sake.

  • But this time around, this kid Randy, arose.

  • Arena.

  • I have not seen a kid arrive on this stage with number of home runs, the postseason record for hits in a postseason.

  • Tell us something about this guy.

  • I thought he just burst onto the scene and blindsided so many fans he did.

  • I mean, he didn't play a bulk of the season and he was sick.

  • I mean, this is someone that not only has exploded offensively in a way that's been consistent.

  • I mean, it's one thing we've seen.

  • Daniel Murphy.

  • We've seen guys in the past where they just hit a bunch of home runs, but he's got the hits.

  • He has been their offense.

  • I mean, shoot, He gets sniper.

  • Did on his way.

  • Running home barrels over still manages to score in Game four.

  • But, Zubin, I think the biggest thing, if you ask Randy arose.

  • Arena, who his favorite player in baseball is, he has answered.

  • It's Randy arose Arena like he's got a ton of confidence.

  • He's got a ton of swag.

  • He gets it every time they show him in the dugout.

  • His emotion, his energy, everything that he does.

  • I I look at him, is not only being a star that's emerged within this world Siri's, but a young player that's gonna be able to go and showcase.

  • And people now know his name.

  • Know how to say his name right now, By the way, carrying into the future where you can talk about some of these Tampa Bay Rays players but especially Randy arose.

  • Arena the personality.

  • I mean, he has put on a show, especially you can remember the Dodgers.

  • No, this is a guy that can't beat them.

  • They try to give them a curveball.

  • They try to give them whatever it ISS.

  • He still hits it.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.

Jess.
