If it sounds like Dodger Stadium on your television set, it’s not just because the Dodgers, as the home team in the first two games of the World Series, get to control the soundtrack and display their videos on the stadium boards. It’s because Dodger fans have taken over Arlington, Texas. Data compiled by Vivid Seats showed that supporters of the Dodgers outnumbered Rays fans two-to-one at Tuesday’s game.
The 2020 World Series opened with a record-setting performance, and not in a good way.

The Latest on Game 2 of the World Series (all times local): 7:57 p.m. Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts has already gone to his bullpen in the second inning of Game 2 of the World Series. Rookie starter Tony Gonsolin didn’t figure to last long in a bullpen game for the Dodgers, and the 26-year-old right-hander was replaced by righty Dylan Floro after Manuel Margot led off with a walk, stole second and went to third on Joey Wendle’s flyout to center.
