Ken Rosenthal said on FS1 late Tuesday that Justin Turner (COVID-19) "insisted upon" being part of the Dodgers' World Series clinching celebration.
Turner was pulled before the eighth inning of Tuesday night's World Series Game 6 win when the Dodgers were alerted that the veteran third baseman had tested positive for COVID-19, but he joined his teammates on the field 20-30 minutes after the final out and even took part in a team photo on the mound. The transcribed television report from Rosenthal: "My understanding from various people is that he was told not to go on the field, or asked not to go on the field. He insisted upon it, the Dodgers insisted upon it, and that is why he was out there. And at one point, he did have his mask off. He was mostly masked, but there was a point during the picture that he did take it off." Rosenthal also stated that "this is not a case of a false positive."

Justin Turner said on his personal Twitter account late Tuesday night that he has "no symptoms at all" following a positive COVID-19 test.
Turner played the first seven innings of Tuesday night's World Series Game 6 clincher before the Dodgers were alerted about the positive test result and pulled him for Edwin Rios. Turner spent the final two innings isolated but then curiously popped out to participate in a celebratory team photo on the mound, at one point scooting closer to his teammates and removing his mask. Perhaps there was a negative test at some point between the seventh inning and the awarding of the World Series trophy, but that seems ... well ... highly unlikely.

Tony Gonsolin lasted just 1 2/3 innings in his World Series Game 6 start on Tuesday versus the Rays.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters Monday that he was hoping to get 5-6 innings out of Gonsolin, but the quick hook came after the 26-year-old right-hander recorded only five outs against the 10 total batters he faced. Tampa Bay mostly failed to capitalize, however, with Randy Arozarena's first-inning solo homer serving as the club's only run of the affair. Los Angeles went on to claim its first World Series title since 1988, and Gonsolin's poor showing will barely even be a footnote. He allowed just seven walks and two home runs in 46 2/3 regular-season innings before yielding nine walks and four homers in 9 1/3 postseason frames.

R. Arozarena - LF
Randy Arozarena finished 2-for-4 with a homer and a single Tuesday in the Rays' World Series Game 6 loss to the Dodgers.
Arozarena belted an opposite-field solo shot off a Tony Gonsolin slider in the top of the first inning to give the Rays their lone run of the night. It was his MLB-record-extending 10th home run of the postseason and sailed 378 feet out to right with an exit velocity of 103 mph. It was also his 14th extra-base hit of these playoff games, tying David Freese's record set in 2011. He's the first rookie ever to drive in a run in four straight World Series games. In the end, though, the Game 6 loss represented the end of the road in 2020 for Randy and the Rays.

Corey Seager was named MVP of the 2020 World Series.
Seager went 0-for-3 with a walk and an RBI fielder's choice grounder in Tuesday night's Game 6 clincher, finishing the series 8-for-20 with two home runs, five RBI, six walks, and seven runs scored. He also won the 2020 NLCS MVP and is now the eighth player in MLB history to earn a League Championship Series MVP and World Series MVP in the same postseason. The others: 2014 Madison Bumgarner, 2011 David Freese, 2008 Cole Hamels, 1997 Livan Hernandez, 1988 Orel Hershiser, 1982 Darrell Porter, and 1979 Willie Stargell.

Julio Urias struck out four batters over 2 1/3 perfect innings to close out the Dodgers' World Series Game 6 victory over the Rays on Tuesday.
Game 6 starter Tony Gonsolin failed to make it out of the second inning, but the one run he allowed -- on a first-inning homer by Randy Arozarena -- stood as the only run that Tampa Bay could manage the entire night. Dylan Floro, Alex Wood, Pedro Baez, Victor Gonzalez, and Brusdar Graterol combined with Urias to deliver 7 1/3 scoreless innings of relief with 12 strikeouts. Urias, at 24 years and 76 days old, is the youngest player to record a save in a World Series clinching game since the Dodgers' own Steve Howe in 1981.

Justin Turner was pulled from Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday against the Rays due to a positive COVID-19 test.
What a strange bit of news to finish off a strange season, one that resulted in the Dodgers claiming their first World Series championship since 1988. Turner played the first seven innings of Tuesday night's clincher before suddenly disappearing from the field -- and from the Dodgers' dugout -- before the top of the eighth. Edwin Rios finished out the game at third base. Look for updates on Turner's status in the coming days.

Blake Snell allowed one run over 5 1/3 innings as the Rays bowed out of the World Series with a Game 6 loss on Tuesday night against the Dodgers.
That above sentence doesn't begin to tell the story. Snell was absolutely cruising, with nine strikeouts, zero walks, one hit allowed, and a pitch count of just 69 through five scoreless innings before he gave up a one-out single to Austin Barnes in the bottom of the sixth. Rays manager Kevin Cash made the decision at that point to lift Snell at 73 pitches, and reliever Nick Anderson would allow both Barnes and Mookie Betts to score. Those were the first runs of the night for the Dodgers, who ultimately went on to win 3-1. The move to pull Snell will probably go down as one of the most criticized decisions by any coach or manager in a championship game.
