Check out highlights from Game 5 of the 2020 World Series, where the Los Angeles Dodgers defeat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-2 to move just one win away from capturing their first World Series title since 1988.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will pitch a bullpen game in Game 6 of the World Series with right-hand rookie Tony Gonsolin getting the start, manager Dave Roberts said on Sunday.

Gonsolin last started for the Dodgers in Game 2 of the World Series, when he allowed one run in 1.1 innings of work with a strikeout and a walk. The 26-year-old was followed by Dylan Floro, Victor Gonzalez, Dustin May, Joe Kelly, Alex Wood and Jake McGee in the 6-4 loss. Of that group, only Gonzalez and May pitched in Game 5.

In this post-season, Gonsolin has a 0-2 record with nine strikeouts and a 1.70 WHIP in 7.2 innings pitched.

Left-hander Blake Snell will start Game 6 for the Rays. He pitched 4.2 innings in Game 2 and allowed two earned runs while striking out nine and walking four Dodgers.
