In one of the strangest and shortest seasons in MLB history, the LA Dodgers brought home their 6th World Series Championship. They defeated the Tampa Bay Rays in a final score of 3-1 in Game 6. This was the Dodgers first championship since 1988.

The Dodgers led by series MVP Cory Seager was down 1-0 going into the bottom of the sixth inning. Rays manager pulled pitcher Blake Snell and relied on his bullpen to protect the lead. Dodgers star Mookie Betts hit a double that sparked a two run rally that completely shifted the momentum.

Rays manager Kevin Cash was criticized for pulling his star pitcher Blake Snell. Dodgers star Mookie Betts said ” I’m not sure why, he was pitching a great game.” (nbc) Snell expressed his frustration about being pulled in his post game interview, saying he was “disappointed, upset.”

This was a great win for the Dodgers as an organization. Not only to be recognized as the best team in baseball, but also with the drama that came with this season. Seeing this World Series happen was not only good for baseball, but good for all sports.
