ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dodgers star Clayton Kershaw beat the Tampa Bay Rays for the second time in six days, escaping a fourth-inning jam with a quick reaction throw to cut down a runner trying for a rare steal of home plate, and Los Angeles held on for a 4-2  win and a 3-2 World Series lead.

Mookie Betts and Corey Seager sparked a two-run first inning, and Joc Pederson and Max Muncy homered off long-ball prone Tyler Glasnow. 

Kershaw improved to 4-1 this postseason. After a day off, Game 6 is Tuesday night.
