MLB: Dodgers, access the Playoffs for the ninth consecutive year

While the Dodgers they won a title of World Series in 2020, they were left wanting more. Due to all health and safety protocols in place, the Dodgers were unable to celebrate their title as previous champions. There were no in-person talk show appearances, no champagne showers, no championship parades through the streets of The Angels.

Winning back-to-back titles served as motivation enough for the Dodgers heading into this season, but the lack of normalcy in 2020 certainly fueled their desire to try and win another title and do all the things they couldn’t do last year:

With an 8-4 scoring win over the Arizona D-backs on Tuesday at Dodger Stadium, along with losses to the San Diego Padres and Cicinnati Reds, the Dodgers took their first step in their quest to repeat, securing his ninth consecutive place in the postseason.

The Dodgers are currently two and a half games behind the leader in the West, the San Francisco Giants, who just beat the San Diego Padres, who could not help the Dodgers.

Yet despite securing a playoff spot, the Dodgers’ focus is to win the West for the ninth straight season. That has become more difficult than anticipated, as the Dodgers remain 2 1/2 games behind the Giants with 16 games remaining in the game.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
