    I'm playing on TAMPA BAY. I said it out loud seconds before Correa got the game-winning HR last night - "don't let this guy beat you ..." While that was costly, I'm coming right back with the Rays today. Snell hasn't been dominant in the playoffs but he has been solid. He's got a 2.87 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through three starts. The former Cy Young winner now has a 2.57 ERA and 1.10 WHIP for his career in the postseason. Note that Snell has a 1.80 ERA in his lone "day" start in these playoffs and that his ERA was considerably lower than his night ERA, during the regular season. With his team needing him most and a spot in the World Series on the line, I expect him to come through with a gem. To his credit, Valdez has been sharp. However, while the Astros were familiar with Snell, the Rays had never previously seen Valdez and that worked in his favor in Game 1. (Tampa still won.) Now, they're seeing him for the second time in less than a week. I expect them to have some better swings. While Tampa used four pitchers yesterday, Houston used seven. I say the Rays close the deal.
