The Los Angeles Dodgers are one game away from winning the World Series.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to the World Series.
A three-run homer in the top of the sixth by Dodgers’ catcher Will Smith off of Atlanta lefty reliever Will Smith sparked a 7-3 Dodger win and kept the Los Angeles season alive, forcing a Game 6 in the NLCS.
Game 4 started off much differently than Game 3, in more than one way. Game time temperature was about 30 degrees less, with wind gusts up to 22 MPH blowing in from centerfield. The Dodgers also failed to score in their first two innings, and couldn’t muster more than two runs.
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.
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.
The Dodgers swept the Brewers 2-0 in a best two-out-of-three Wild Card series. Manager Dave Roberts and his ballclub moved onto the Division Series with relative ease. There wasn’t really wasn’t any point where the Dodgers didn’t look in control. The bullpen pitched a scoreless six innings in the first game and got nice help from Clayton Kershaw in the second game. Kershaw looked like every bit of his three-time Cy Young award-winning self, pitching a scoreless eight innings alongside an insane 13 strikeouts.
The Dodgers did what they needed to do against the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday night, scoring more runs than them to win the first game of the Wild Card round. But it wasn’t without some issues.
Here we are yet again—the Dodgers find themselves in the playoffs for the eighth straight time. Fans obviously at this point are not content with making it to the postseason, as most eyes are on a World Championship. The new Wild Card rule will make things more difficult and definitely will tense up the nerves.
