On Friday, when the Dodgers and Rays tied the best-of-seven series at one game apiece, both teams were wary of letting their minds wander to Game 1 of the World Series. But how will the chemistry in the Dodgers’ clubhouse react if their bats do not come alive against the aces in Brad Boxberger and Corey Kluber? How will the Rays respond if Evan Longoria can’t deliver another home run in Game 1 after he sent the Yankees to the brink with two in Game 5 of the AL Championship Series? And how will the pressure of tomorrow’s Game 1 affect Chris Archer, one of the few Tampa Bay pitchers who has excelled against the Dodgers so far this postseason?

“I’m confident we’ll get into a good groove on Sunday and put some of the issues on the field behind us.” —Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts

Neil Lewis, the Rays’ director of media relations, said Rays manager Kevin Cash would not reveal anything until Saturday morning.

“We’ll be doing our best to deal with the unknown as much as possible until we know the challenge tomorrow,” Lewis said.
