I agree. Chris would have probably thrown home & Muncy would have probably

cut off the throw, which would have left runners at 1st & 3rd with 2 outs. Meadows, another LH hitter was due up next. I assume that LA would have brought in another pitcher. Jansen has been neither good nor lucky in the post-season. Yes, the Rays were fortunate on both singles, but so were the Dodgers on their bloop single in the top of the 8th which gave them a 7-6 lead. The Rays made the plays that they had to make in the bottom of the 9th; the Dodgers didn't. Jansen had his chances with Arozerena with a 1-2 count, but couldn't get him out. And Jensen got the benefit of 2 really close calls when he faced Phillips. The 1st pitch was close & was correctly called a ball. The next 2 pitches were borderline (they could have been called either way) & were both called strikes. Phillips kept his wits about him & got a pitch that was a bit up & that he could hit on the 1-2 count. And Arozerena kept his wits about him when he faced a 1-2 count and took a pitch that was barely outside. The Rays' poise in a high pressure situation really impressed me.
