Dodgers 1 Win From Title After 32 Years And More Than $3.6B
ARLINGTON, Texas -- AP -- Since Orel Hershiser struck out Oakland's Tony Phillips for the final out of the 1988 World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers have played 5,014 regular-season games and 113 more in the postseason in pursuit of their next title. They have spent $3.69 billion in player payroll over 32 seasons.
One more win and that elusive seventh championship will be theirs. Tony Gonsolin starts Tuesday against the Rays' Blake Snell and hopes to keep the World Series from reaching a Game 7 for the fourth time in five years. Walker Buehler would start Game 7 for the Dodgers.
