ARLINGTON, Texas — A day after landing one of the most thrilling wins in World Series history, the Rays aimed to lead the series against the Dodgers in Game 5.

But, Tampa Bay was bested by Los Angeles Sunday night with a final score of 4-2. 

The Dodgers now lead the series. Game 6 is Tuesday night.

The series was tied after Game 4's walk-off win, which played out Saturday night like a scene from a movie. Brett Phillips and Randy Arozarena -- those names will now be etched in the histories of the Rays and the World Series. And, it was hometown hero Phillips  -- and a bit of bungling by the Dodgers -- who played a huge role in setting up Kevin Kiermaier's and Arozarena's runs to home base.

Relive that epic win here.
