The Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays are tied up 2-2 in the World Series, and Max Muncy is doing his best to give the Dodgers the series lead.
With the Dodgers leading 3-2 in the fifth inning, Muncy demolished a 99 mph fastball from Tampa Bay’s Tyler Glasnow for a solo homer well beyond the right-center field wall. This is an absolute bomb, so it’s understandable why Muncy wanted to get a long look at it.

While that’s Muncy’s first homer of the World Series, the left-handed hitter has been locked in; it was only a matter of time until he went yard.
Max Muncy is locked in in a way he hasn’t been all season. That homer was his first in 11 days, but he’s now batting .412/.545/.647 in the World Series.

Muncy has reached in all three plate appearances on Sunday night, with a single and walk in addition to the massive dinger.
