Two days after their comeback from a two-game deficit against the Atlanta Braves in the National League Championship Series, the Dodgers opened their third World Series in four years with an 8-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.

Clayton Kershaw was impressive early for the Dodgers on the 32nd anniversary of the team’s 1988 World Series win, limiting the Rays to two hits and a run over six innings. A two-run home run by Cody Bellinger in the fourth inning coupled with a big fifth inning allowed the Dodgers to pull away.

Here are some of the best photos of Game 1 from longtime Los Angeles Times photographers Robert Gauthier and Wally Skalij. In addition, Gina Ferazzi captured the scene at Dodger Stadium, where fans watched the game from the parking lot, and Myung J. Chun caught the action in a bar full of Dodgers fans.
