The Dodgers had a memorable season and emerged at the most critical time of the year.
They were the best baseball team by a wide margin for three quarters of the season, and were on track to win 110 games or more until mid-August. However, they made a terrible landslide at the end of the month that led them to mid-September.
The Dodgers have lost 16 of the 17 playoff games just around the corner, and do not look like a team that has been able to win a series against a mediocre opponent, not to mention beating the others. championship contenders.
They came out of their slump in the last 10 games of the regular season, but appeared to be on unstable ground as they prepared to face the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL divisional series. They had been swept in two sets of three games by Arizona in their defeat, and Paul Goldschmidt and J. D. Martinez’s power bats became great.
However, Roberts and his team had no problem and eliminated the wild card winners in three consecutive games. The 2016 World Series champion, Cubs, has not found a solution either.
The Dodgers won 11-1 in Game 5 and celebrated the National League title at Wrigley Field. Enrique Hernandez, one of the Dodgers’ role-players, surprised the observers with a three homer performance that included a grand slam in the decisive game.
The Dodgers received clutch shots during the playoffs for a number of key players. Third baseman Justin Turner is .387 with three homers and 12 RBIs, while right fielder Yasiel Puig strikes .414 with one homer, six RBIs and six RBIs.
“This is one of the most incredible teams I’ve ever played,” said Turner, of Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times. “Every night, it’s someone different, something special, you never know what you’re going to see, maybe even someone hit three homers in a decisive match.”
Cody Bellinger and Chris Taylor had two homers and four points, while Logan Forsythe scored .316 with six points.
Starting pitters Clayton Kershaw and Yu Darvish are 2-0, as is reliever Kenta Maeda. Kershaw had problems during the playoffs throughout his career, and although he had no problems in the playoffs, he has a 3.63 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 17.1 innings. Darvish has a 1.59 ERA and 14 impressive strikeouts in 11.1 innings.
If the Yankees survive the seventh game, they will depend on their power against the Dodgers. Aaron Judge hit four playoff circuits to lead the team after scoring 52 during the regular season. Gary Sanchez, Didi Gregorius and Greg Bird made three playoff rounds.
The Astros are led by American League MVP candidate Jose Altuve, who reaches .405 in the playoffs with four homers and seven RBIs. First baseman Yuli Gurriel has a .378 average with 14 hits in the playoffs, while Carlos Correa has three home runs and nine RBIs.
While Saturday’s ALCS winner will have to leave the field to win the title, this team will have two days off before the first game of the World Series.
