One out was all that stood between the Los Angeles Dodgers and a 3-1 World Series lead against the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday.

After things didn't go their way in a wild walk-off loss, the Dodgers get less than 24 hours to regroup as the two teams take the field tied at two wins apiece entering Game 5 on Sunday at Arlington, Texas.

Los Angeles fell 8-7 in Game 4 after Kenley Jansen blew the save in the ninth inning following a series of misplays on defense. With two outs and two men on, a single off the bat of light-hitting Rays reserve Brett Phillips was bobbled in center field by Chris Taylor, whose throw to the plate was cut off before catcher Will Smith had it get by him to allow Randy Arozarena -- who had done a full somersault after rounding third -- to dive home for the winning run.

"It was like an (imperfect) storm. Just unfortunate," said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. Taylor was charged with an error on the play.

Instead of playing Sunday with a chance to end its 32-year championship drought, Los Angeles will look to keep underdog Tampa Bay from seizing momentum in the best-of-seven series. The Dodgers will send ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw (3-1, 2.88 ERA this postseason) to the mound opposite Rays righty Tyler Glasnow (2-2, 6.08).

Prior to the ninth inning Saturday, the Dodgers seized control of the back-and-forth affair in the eighth when Corey Seager hit a tiebreaking RBI single. He finished with a home run and four hits in the game, as did Justin Turner. All seven of Los Angeles' runs were scored with two outs.

The Dodgers also received multiple home runs from the offense for the seventh straight game.

"We're going to come in fresh tomorrow," said Roberts. "I think we're very resilient. We're playing good baseball. We got beat, but we'll be ready to go."

The Rays could be playing with renewed energy after the way things went Saturday. "I wish I had better words to describe what the club is feeling like right now," said manager Kevin Cash after the miraculous comeback.

Beyond the heroics from Phillips, who wasn't part of the American League Championship Series roster and hadn't had a hit since Sept. 25, Brandon Lowe slugged a clutch three-run home run and Arozarena, Hunter Renfroe and Kiermaier each hit solo shots.

"It's a testament to the way this team is put together," said Lowe of all the different contributors. "It doesn't matter who you have in the lineup to start the game, who is on the bench, everyone can get used at any time and everyone is going to come in ready to produce."

Arozarena's blast gave him sole possession of the MLB record for a single postseason with nine homers, and his three hits in the game have him tied with Pablo Sandoval in 2014 for most hits in a playoffs with 26.

Kershaw and Glasnow matched up in Game 1 of the series, an 8-3 Dodgers win. Kershaw allowed one run on two hits over six innings, striking out eight. He's four punchouts shy of matching Justin Verlander's all-time postseason record with 205.

Glasnow was tagged for six runs on three hits over 4 1/3 innings, walking six and striking out eight.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Tampa Bay Rays

Max Muncy hit a towering home run in the fifth after Clayton Kershaw escaped a jam to protect a one-run lead an inning prior as the Los Angeles Dodgers moved a win away from ending their 32-year championship drought with a 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday night at Arlington, Texas.

Joc Pederson also homered as the Dodgers rebounded from a disastrous walk-off loss in Game 4 just 24 hours prior. Kershaw (4-1) gave up two runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings, striking out six and walking two.

Victor Gonzalez stranded two Rays in the eighth to protect the lead, and Blake Treinen fanned two after a leadoff single in the ninth to record the save and give Los Angeles the opportunity to close out the best-of-seven series Tuesday.

Trailing 3-2 in the fourth, the Rays had a prime chance to get to Kershaw when Manuel Margot walked to lead off the inning, stole second and advanced to third on a missed catch by Chris Taylor on the throw. Hunter Renfroe followed with a walk to put runners on the corners.

After Joey Wendle popped out and Willy Adames struck out, Margot took a chance trying to steal home while Kershaw was mid-motion to the plate, but the left-hander got the ball to catcher Austin Barnes to narrowly beat Margot on the tag for the final out.

Muncy's homer gave Los Angeles a two-run edge. He became the ninth different Dodger to go deep in the series.

In the bottom of the fifth, Kershaw surpassed Justin Verlander's all-time record of 205 postseason strikeouts when he whiffed Kevin Kiermaier to begin the frame.

The Rays' best chance to rally came in the eighth when red-hot rookie Randy Arozarena stepped in with two on and one out. Gonzalez got Arozarena to fly out and Brandon Lowe to line out to end the threat.

Los Angeles got off to a hot start against Tampa Bay starter Tyler Glasnow, who labored in the first inning. A Mookie Betts double and Corey Seager single had the Dodgers up 1-0 just 10 pitches in, and Cody Bellinger made it 2-0 with an RBI single later in the frame.

Pederson homered to lead off the second for a 3-0 Los Angeles lead. The Rays cut their deficit to one on a Yandy Diaz run-scoring triple and Arozarena's RBI single in the third.

The hit by Arozarena was his 27th of the playoffs to surpass Pablo Sandoval's single postseason record set in 2014.

Glasnow (2-3) settled down and allowed four runs on six hits over five innings. He walked three, struck out seven and threw a World Series record three wild pitches.
