Arlington, Texas – After a 3-1 victory Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers earned their seventh title. To top it off, Corey Seager becomes the first shortstop to win World Series MVP in a decade.
Seager scores with a pair of home runs, 7 runs, and 5 runs batted in, to cap
off an amazing postseason. Further, earning the title of a World Series Champion, Seager said that it was “stuff you think about when you’re a kid.”
The Tampa Bay Rays, who lost the series 4-2, got 3 home runs out of their
powerhouse hitter, Randy Arozarena. Blake Snell, who struck out 9, was
dominant. Conversely, his manager, Kevin Cash, pulled Snell out for relief pitcher Nick Anderson in the sixth inning.
A reporter asked why he replaced Snell. Cash’s reply was “Snell gave
everything that [the team] could have asked for.”
During a post-game presser, Snell said he was proud of putting his team in a
situation to win.
Due to the pandemic, the Dodgers announced their parade faces a delay until further notice. After the Lakers and Dodgers title wins, has this been the greatest year in Los Angeles sports?
