32 years in the making, LA Dodgers win the World Series Championship title for the first time since the 1988 World Series.

The Dodgers vs. Rays were held at the Global Life Field on Tuesday Night.

The First Strike in the World Series

Randy Arozarena of the Rays started strong by hitting a solo home run in the first. His run left the Rays parked on top with a score of 1-0 until the sixth inning.

Mookie Betts then greeted Nick Anderson with a double, and Barnes scored the tying run on a wild pitch. Betts scored on Corey Seager’s grounder to first baseman Ji-Man Choi, easily beating the throw home.

The L.A Dodgers Victory

Julio Urias pitches 2 ¹/₃ perfect innings, striking out four, and earned the save, marking the second straight postseason series they closed the intense World Game Series.

It was a long wait for both the LA Dodgers and their suffering fans. Tuesday saw their prayers answered with a victory.

“I feel great, no symptoms at all. Just experienced every emotion you can imagine. Can’t believe I couldn’t be out there to celebrate with my guys! So proud of this team & unbelievably happy for the City of LA,” says Justin Turner in a tweet after being pulled from the game due to covid-19.

The chaos and hopelessness of 2020 seemed to be unending but the Dodgers changed that for Los Angeles and instilled a sense of relief city and world-wide for fans.
