The Los Angeles Dodgers aren’t yet able to celebrate their World Series title due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but MLB Network is providing fans with an opportunity to relive their postseason run.
Beginning Saturday morning at 9 a.m. PT, MLB Network will air each of the Dodgers’ 13 wins in the playoffs. Their World Series run began with a sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers in the Wild Card Series, which each team had to play in due to an expanded postseason.
From there the Dodgers advanced to the National League Division Series for a highly-anticipated matchup with the San Diego Padres. The Padres made a push in the NL West, though the Dodgers ultimately pulled away late to win the division for an eighth consecutive season.
Next was facing the Atlanta Braves with an opportunity to win the NL pennant for a third time in the past four years. The Dodgers remained favored in another postseason series, though their quest to win a championship began to slip away when the Braves took a 3-1 lead.
On the brink of elimination, L.A. maintained their same level of confidence and day-to-day focus. That paid off with three consecutive wins for a return to the Fall Classic.
Mookie Betts made terrific catches and Corey Seager carried the offense en route to being named NLCS MVP.
The Tampa Bay Rays awaited the Dodgers in the World Series, having avoided a 3-0 collapse against the Houston Astros. With both teams coming off playing seven games in as many days, navigating pitching decisions was a central theme.
The Dodgers defeated the Rays in six games to join the L.A. Lakers in being crowned champions this season and recreating 1988. Seager became the eighth player to be named MVP of the NLCS and World Series in the same postseason.
