ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — With two down, the Los Angeles Dodgers delivered time and time again. It still wasn’t enough. All the Dodgers’ runs in a wild 8-7 World Series loss to Tampa Bay crossed the plate with two outs, raising their total to 57 of 94 in the postseason. The 60.6% clip is on track for a postseason record, topping the previous high of 59.3% by the 1992 Atlanta Braves. But for all their clutch hitting, the Dodgers couldn’t make the last pitch they needed to close out Game 4 in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the best-of-seven Series is tied at two games apiece.
