SportsNet LA Reliving 2020 World Series Win With “Timeless Dodgers”

The Los Angeles Dodgers winning their first World Series since 1988 has been celebrated throughout the offseason and will continue on SportsNet LA this week.

The network is using their “Timeless Dodgers” programming to highlight victories from the 2020 MLB postseason, beginning with the Dodgers facing the Milwaukee Brewers in the Wild Card Series. That will be followed by all three games from the National League Division Series.

With MLB playing a shortened season, the league and Players Association agreed to an expanded postseason. It meant 16 teams qualified for October baseball, with each playing a best-of-3 series.

The Dodgers hosted the Milwaukee Brewers, who finished under .500 but secured the second Wild Card spot. L.A. quickly jumped out to a 3-0 lead in Game 1 and went on for a 4-2 win. In a sign of what was to come the remainder of the postseason, Corey Seager provided insurance with a late home run.

Clayton Kershaw was dominant in Game 2, but his effort was largely matched by Brandon Woodruff. The game remained locked in a scoreless tie until Austin Barnes’ RBI single and Mookie Betts’ two-run double in the fifth inning propelled the Dodgers to a 3-0 win.

After sweeping the Brewers, the Dodgers entered a bubble at Globe Life Field for a highly-anticipated matchup with the San Diego Padres in the National League Division Series. San Diego finished with the second-best record in the NL but faced some injury concerns.

That was magnified when Mike Clevinger was removed from Game 1 due to an elbow injury that also required being taken off the Padres’ postseason roster.

The first two games of the NLDS were closely contested before the Dodgers stormed to a Game 3 win and second series sweep. It also included a highlight-reel catch by Cody Bellinger that prompted an exuberant celebration from Brusdar Graterol that upset Manny Machado.
