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.

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.
