The Los Angeles Dodgers are the 2020 World Series champions. I will never get tired of saying, reading, or writing that phrase.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to the World Series.
“I try not think about what might’ve been. ‘Cuz that was then, and we have taken different roads. We can’t go back again, there’s no use givin’ in. And there’s no way to know what might’ve been” – Little Texas
Another season has come to an end, and another year where Dodgers are left wondering what might have been.
The Los Angeles Dodgers were handed a stunning 9-6 loss at the hands of the Boston Red Sox in game four of the World Series on Saturday evening.
It took every bit of 18 innings and seven plus hours, but the Dodgers have finally won a game in the 2018 World Series.
Undeniably, it’s easy to discredit the decisions of the Los Angeles coaching staff seconds after they implode. Two critical bullpen moves during the first two games have played large in both outcomes, putting the Dodgers in an extremely deep hole as the World Series moves Westward. As bad as the decisions may have been, the personnel involved in both of the substitutions was even more puzzling, as the moves were ultimately questioned by everyone who witnessed the game, including supporters of the Red Sox.
After carrying a one-run lead into the fifth inning, the Dodgers eventually lost 4-2 in Game 2 of the 2018 World Series on Wednesday night against the Red Sox. Los Angeles has dropped the first two games of this series in Boston and find themselves in a 2-0 deficit with the series set shifting to Los Angeles.
Despite the Dodgers and Red Sox going punch-for-punch for a good portion of the 2018 World Series Opener, pinch-hitter Eduardo Nunez crushed an Alex Wood slider in the bottom of the seventh inning, stretching the Boston lead to four and ultimately securing an 8-4 victory.
