Enough about 1988! For the first time in 32 years, the Dodgers have won the World Series. The seventh title in franchise history. The most tumultuous year of the century in which many didn’t know what was in store, with baseball as an afterthought. No one knew if a Major League season would even take place. But baseball eventually got up and dusted itself off, and in the end, one team was standing—the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are one game away from winning the World Series.
Walker Buehler had yet another outstanding postseason performance. Buehler’s final line was six innings pitched, only allowing one run on three hits while striking out ten batters. The Dodgers gave Buehler an early lead when Justin Turner homered off Rays starter Charlie Morton in the first inning. From then on, Los Angeles cruised to a 6-2 Game 3 win and a 2-1 lead in the 2020 World Series.
The Dodgers find themselves in a semi-familiar place, tied 1-1 with the Rays in the World Series.
Tuesday night showed why Clayton Kershaw is a first-ballot Hall of Famer and why he will have a plaque in Cooperstown one day. It also showed every bit of reason why the Dodgers signed Mookie Betts to a 12-year, $365 million contract extension. In an almost-perfect evening, the Los Angeles Dodgers cruised to an 8-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 1 of the World Series.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to the World Series.
It was a classic pitching matchup of two really good pitching staffs. But, in the end, the Atlanta Braves broke it open, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 1 of the 2020 NLCS.
The Los Angeles Dodgers continue their quest to win the 2020 World Series today by starting a best-of-seven series against the Atlanta Braves in Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.
The Los Angeles Dodgers swept the National League Division Series against the San Diego Padres on Thursday night. While Game 3 didn’t provide the anxiety that Wednesday night did, the Los Angeles offense made it look easy, putting up 14 hits. The Dodgers rode to a 12- 3 victory and now will face the Atlanta Braves in the National League Championship Series.
It wasn’t neat, it wasn’t necessarily tidy. But when all was said and done, the Dodgers got the win, and that’s all that matters.
