The MLB playoffs

The MLB playoffs

Felix Ronchetti, Writer

          The MLB playoffs have started and it is off to a great start. All the MLB teams that made the playoffs play a best out of 3 series. The first 2 series to be concluded was the Astros and Twins and Rays Bluejays. The Astros and the Blue Jays swept their opponents. Later, the A’s swept the Sox when they won their second game 6-4. The next series to be concluded was the Padres and the Cardinals. The first game was taken by the Cardinals, but the Padres came back in game 2 and won 11-9. The series concluded when the Padres won the last game 4-0. The Yankees swept the Indians, the Reds were swept by the Braves, the Dodgers swept the Brewers. The Marlins upset the Cubs when they swept them shocking almost everyone. The next stage is the divisional series, the Padres at the Dodgers, the Astros and A’s, the Marlins and the Braves, and finally the Yankees and Rays. 

The divisional round’s first game was concluded when the Astros swept the A’s after beating them 5-2. The next team to be sent home was the Marlins. They lost to the Braves in 2 games. Next to go were the Padres. They were defeated when the Dodgers beat them in 2 games. The last series is interesting though. It started when the Yankees crushed the Rays 9-3. In the next game, the Rays came back and won 7-5. The Rays also won the game after that when they beat the Yankees 8-4. The Rays are winning the series 2-1. If in the next game the Rays win, then they advance, but of course, they got beat 5-1. Whoever wins the final game wins it all. For most of the game, it was tied 1-1; but then in the 8th inning, the Rays hit a home run to get the lead. They held on to the lead for the rest of the game and are advancing. What a game!!

Finally the world series. In the first game, the Dodgers creamed the Rays 8-3. In-game 2, the Rays came back and beat them by 2, winning 6-4. Series tied 1-1. In the next game, the Dodgers weren’t messing around and beat the Rays 6-2, but the Rays bounced back winning by 1 and tying the series at 2. The Dodgers went into game mode and won the next 2 games. The Dodgers won the world series!!!
