The Astros find themselves in a 2-0 hole versus the Rays in the ALCS but they'll look to carve into that deficit on Tuesday night at 8:40 p.m. ET. During the bottom of the first inning, an unsuccessful pass from Jose Altuve to Yuli Gurriel set two runners on base for the Rays. They're also 48-21 in their last 69 games when facing a left-handed starter and even if they don't come all the way back to win this series, I still like them to take Game 3 tonight.
"In all the time I played here, I never played right field", Margot, who played four seasons from 2016-19 with the San Diego Padres in Petco Park, told TBS post-game through a translator.
Margot was OK on the gutsy play, which halted any kind of Astros rally and marked the beginning of what was a superb fielding day for the Rays.
"We respect how talented they are, but they are the team we (took) to Game 5, and we fell short", Rays manager Kevin Cash said ahead of Game 1.
In Game 2, Margot got the defensive play of the day. Tampa Bay now has a commanding 2-0 series lead.

Here's how the schedules line up for the five-game series.
The Astros had runners in second and third base, making this play the game-saver.
The Astros scored first in all four games against Oakland in the ALDS, and they did it again in Game 1 of the ALCS.
Rays right-hander Charlie Morton (1-0) repeatedly pitched out of trouble while hurling five shutout innings. This third game will be key for the Astros as they would not want to find themselves in a 0-3 hole. During the regular season, he had a 2.73 ERA.
