The Los Angeles Dodgers have won the World Series after 32 years, but a truly unfortunate event happened. During the 2nd inning of game 6, MLB receives communication of the result of the buffer made the previous Monday by Justin Turner, third base of the Dodgers.
Turner was on the diamond along with his teammates, scoring a 0-3 with two strikeouts. MLB immediately sends to analyze the swab made by the player on the morning of the game, on Tuesday, and the result arrived during the 7th inning: he was positive for COVID-19.
As reported by ESPN, all players were tested on their return to the hotel with the quick PCR test. None of them around Turner wore masks. Dodgers president Andrew Friedman said: "If someone has committed this lightness it is not good.
The important thing is that the tests are negative and not to spread the virus outside."
Turner was replaced at the beginning of the eighth inning by Edwin Rios. The deductible, at the time of the change, did not specify the reasons.
Turner thus returned to the locker room of the Arlington stadium, following from there with his wife the final stages of the game, which gave the Dodgers the long-awaited MLB title. Turner, at the end of the game, took to the field to celebrate with his teammates and family.
He was filmed by an exclusive video broadcast by Fox Sports which shows him reappearing in the Dodgers dugout. The images show Turner hugging teammates' wives and girlfriends in the Dodgers dogout. All while wearing the protective mask.
Social distancing between handshakes and hugs was not respected even with the comrades. Turner then posed for the usual photos with his companions. We told you about Los Angeles Dodgers which win the World Series after 32 years (since 1988)!
They beat Tampa Bay Rays and throughout Game 6 the victory seemed like an appointment to be postponed. Baseball in 2020 withstood Covid and completed a year to remember. The pandemic was a threat until the very end: in race 6 Justin Turner was removed during the race because he was positive at the last check.
A difficult year, in unrepeatable conditions. Also for this reason it is irrepressible joy for the Dodgers. The 3 to 1 final of race 6 bears his signature. He had arrived in Los Angeles to complete an excellent group and lead them to victory.
She did it. The MVP title goes to Corey Seager, and his offensive stats prove him right. Blake Snell, the Rays 'starting pitcher, produced a stunning performance, silencing the Dodgers' powerful attack for over 5 innings with 9 strike outs.
Almost a masterpiece, but not rewarded by the team that took the point of advantage with a home run than the usual Randy Arozarena in the first inning, but then nothing more. At the first jolt the Rays fell, Snell removed from the mountain the dam gave way.
At the first moment of Snell's difficulty he thought of replacing him to avoid trouble. Instead the troubles have arrived. Mookie Betts was confirmed as the player of the winning moments, he scored the diving pass from third base anticipating the defense, added a safety home run.
Dave Roberts finally brings the Dodgers to managerial success after losing finals in 2017 and 2018, now it's up to Cash to rethink the choices that didn't work. But Tampa Bay has had an exciting season, it deserves only compliments.
Los Angeles was stronger, better equipped and more aware that its time had come. So Los Angeles Dodgers won the World Series for the first time in 32 years, the final of the North American professional baseball league MLB, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 and winning the series 4-2.
So also the MLB season ends, after the NBA and the NHL. Tampa Bay is NHL champion for the second time in history. The Florida franchise, at the 2004 title and at the end of a completely atypical season, now adds that of 2020.
Coach Jon Cooper's Lightning, in the Rogers Place bubble in Edmonton, Canada, win game-6 of the final against the Dallas Stars 2-0 (1-0, 1-0, 0-0), close the series at 4-2 and, as favorites, take home the Stanley Cup, succeeding the St.
Louis Blues, after last year they were sensationally eliminated from the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round of the playoffs. Hedman Mvp Heroes of the day are Brayden Point, at 12'33 "author of the 1-0 in power play with his 14th goal of the playoffs and Blake Coleman, who at 27'01" signed the 2-0 with the first.
So the Stanley Cup goes to Florida. Won 2-0 game-6 of the final against the Texans, ends the series 4-2 and repeats the success of 2004. Hedman Mvp of the playoffs. An anomalous season ended in the best possible way after four and a half months of stop.
