The MLB learned of the positive test during the game - which the Dodgers won 3-1 to clinch their first World Series victory in 32 years - in Arlington, Texas, and instructed the Dodgers to remove Turner from the contest.

James watched as Mookie Betts made a few key plays late in the game to help the Dodgers to their seventh World Series championship in franchise history.

While it isn't the Dodgers' first title, this World Series capped a most unusual season shortened by a pandemic and completed in a so-called bubble.

"We learned during the game Justin tested positive and he was immediately isolated to prevent spread", Commissioner Rob Manfred said after presenting Los Angeles with the championship trophy.

Clayton Kershaw, who went 2-0 in the World Series, earned the first championship of his storied 12-year career.

The Dodgers win completed a championship double for Los Angeles, whose LeBron James-led Lakers won their first National Basketball Association title since 2010 earlier this month.

"Snell was pitching a great game", Betts said. "I didn't even know Rios was in the game ... that was a shock to me".

They cruised through the regular season with the best record in baseball.

Snell, meanwhile, retired the first six batters he faced before giving off a leadoff single to Chris Taylor in the third, then retired nine more as the Rays preserved their one-run lead through five innings.

"The resilience, the energy, everything that this team's done this year, it's been fun to be a part of", Seager said. "It feels really good".

Roberts, who rattled superstitious Dodgers fans when he declared before the series "This is our year", was vindicated.
