Los Angeles Dodgers earned their pass to the World Series in the victory of an eager seventh game against the Atlanta Braves. This team is the only one in the National League to lose the series 3-1 and win the pass to the World Series.
Yesterday both teams made history. It was the first time in history that in the same game two teams started a game seven with a rookie pitcher. For the Dodgers, the starter pitcher was Dustin May, who did not have good participation.
The first eight pitches were ball, having two players on base in the first inning with no out. In the tenth pitching, Acuña Jr. had scored the first run, and still, there were two players on base. After that, they changed May for Tony Gonsolin. In his second pitching, Swanson made a home run, making the second run for Atlanta.
The rookie starting pitcher for the Braves was Ian Anderson. Unlike May, he stayed until his 72 pitchings.
Down in the third inning, the catcher Will Smith did a heat that drove two runs to tie the score 2-2. In the next inning, Ozzie Albies did the fourth run thanks to Austin Riley batting.
Max Muncy had a turn at bat with three players on base, getting a chance to make a grand slam. A very tense moment in the game, but he failed the opportunity.
The fail of Muncy didn’t hurt a lot since in the sixth inning Enrique “Kike” Hernández made a home run tying the score again 3-3. In the next inning Cody Bellinger made another home run putting the Dodgers leading the game 4-3.
The game ended with that score. Los Angeles Dodgers won their pass to the World Series for the third time in the last four seasons.
Corey Seager won the Most Valuable Player of the National League Championship Series. Seager worked his way into the record books with five home runs and 11 RBIs, both of which set NLCS records. He also outscored Davey Lopes and Justin Turner for the most home runs, and RBIs in a single Dodgers postseason.
The World Series starts tomorrow against the Tampa Bay Rays to see who will be the Major League Baseball 2020 Champions
Can the Dodgers finally win a championship? Or will they continue with the bad streak?
