LA Dodgers will face Tampa Bay Rays in MLB World Series
The GIST: Big day in LA yesterday! The Dodgers brought the fireworks and advanced to the World Series for the third time in four years. Happy Monday!
⚾️How was Game 7?: It was nerve-wracking as hell. The Dodgers’ pitchers gave us heartache to start Game 7 of the NLCS, but managed to hold the Atlanta Braves to just two runs in the first two innings.
- It felt like Mookie Betts saved the Dodgers’ season with another spectacular leaping catch, before Kiké Hernández and Cody Bellinger secured the win for the Dodgers with solo home runs. Comeback season, baby!
World Series bound! Who’re they playing?: The Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays are built differently than the Dodgers, with less star power but still a lot of depth. Maybe, just maybe, this will finally be the year the Dodgers overcome their postseason woes and win their first World Series in over 30 years.
- Game 1 starts tomorrow at 8:09 p.m. ET/5:09 p.m. PT. Ride that momentum!
🏈Anything else?: Yes, but you were better off celebrating the Dodgers’ win. On the gridiron, the Rams’ sloppy play led to a 24–16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The Rams need to clean that up before facing the 5-1 Chicago Bears next Monday.
