2020 World Series Comes to an End: Here is What You Missed


Clay Holmes, Journalist

The 2020 World Series was definitely one for the history books. It was a back and forth battle between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Tampa Bay Rays. During the regular season the Dodgers had the best record in the league at 43-17. The series was highly anticipated and was worth the watch.

In case you did not get to watch the series, you missed an amazing series of baseball. The Dodgers went 13-5 in the postseason, however the Rays were breaking records. Randy Arozarena broke the postseason home run record by hitting 9 home runs. The World Series is a 7 game baseball series to determine the champion of the MLB. The Dodgers won the series in game 6. LA was the favorite in this series, however the Rays played them very well. Each game was extremely well played and both teams were well deserving of the title. 

However, there can only be one winner and that winner was the Los Angeles Dodgers; winning game 6 of the series and winning the series 4 to 2. Brian Urias was the closing pitcher for the Dodgers that recorded the last out of the game and the series. He struck out the last batter of the 2020 World Series, giving his team the title of best baseball team in the world. 

This series was definitely a fun one to watch and it was a very competitive series. Hats off to both teams but congratulations to LA. This would be Los Angeles’s second sports championship of 2020, the first being the Los Angeles Lakers winning the NBA championship. Congratulations Dodgers, and congratulations to LA.
