Dodgers Eliminating Giants In NLDS Nominated For Top Sports Moment In 2021 L.A. Sports Awards

Despite tying a franchise record with 106 wins last season, the Los Angeles Dodgers had their streak of National League West titles snapped at eight because the San Francisco Giants put together a historically great year.

After defeating the St. Louis Cardinals in walk-off fashion in the Wild Card Game, the Dodgers and Giants were set for an NL Division Series showdown. It went five games, with the Dodgers emerging victorious in dramatic fashion at Oracle Park.

Their Game 5 win has been nominated for the Top Sports Moment at the 2021 L.A. Sports Awards. Voting runs through Tuesday, March 8, when the Sports Awards will be broadcast on SportsNet LA, Spectrum News 1 and Spectrum SportsNet.

Additional awards that will be selected are Sportsman of the Year, Sportswoman of the Year, Coach of the Year, Executive of the Year, Mayor’s Community Athlete of the Year and Greatest Moment of the Year.

Recent Dodgers winners at the L.A. Sports Awards include Mookie Betts being voted one of the Sportspersons of the Year and manager Dave Roberts earning Coach of the Year in 2020. The year prior, Cody Bellinger was voted one of the 2019 Sportspersons of the Year.

The NLDS meeting marked the first time the Dodgers and Giants faced each other in the postseason. L.A. twice staved off elimination to reach the NL Championship Series a fourth time in the past five years.
