Folks, we’ve got a World Series.
The Tampa Bay Rays walked off the Los Angeles Dodgers with an 8-7 win in Game 4 after Randy Arozarena scored following a Chris Taylor error to even the series at 2-2.

Brett Phillips slapped what appeared to be a game-tying single off closer Kenley Jansen in the bottom of the ninth, but Arozarena was allowed to score when Dodgers catcher Will Smith had trouble fielding the relay home.
Arozarena hit his ninth home run of the playoffs earlier in the game, setting a new single-postseason record for long balls. Hunter Renfroe, Brandon Lowe, and Kevin Kiermaier also went deep for the Rays in the thrilling victory.
Lowe gave the Rays their first lead of the game on a massive three-run blast in the bottom of the sixth, but the club quickly surrendered the lead back to the Dodgers.
There hadn’t been a single lead change in the series going into Game 4. That changed on Saturday as neither club would retain momentum for very long.
The Dodgers out-hit the Rays 15-10, and both Corey Seager and Justin Turner registered four base hits apiece. Seager hit his eighth home run of the postseason in the third inning and drove in a go-ahead run on a bloop single in the eighth.
The teams will play Game 5 on Sunday with Clayton Kershaw toeing the rubber for the Dodgers and Tyler Glasnow starting for the Rays.
