After a historic 42-8 stretch in the regular season where they earned their first division title since 2009, the Dodgers’ World Series aspirations came to an end in St. Louis with a Game 6 loss, 9-0.
With Clayton Kershaw on the mound, the Dodgers were confident they would be able to force a Game 7 on Saturday. Unfortunately, nothing went right for Los Angeles as the left-handed pitcher had one of the worst performances of his career. Kershaw uncharacteristically allowed seven earned runs, 10 hits, and two walks in only four-plus innings. Overall, the Dodgers finished with just two hits, two errors, and two questionable throws from Yasiel Puig.
Considering the Dodgers were in last place on June 22, it was an amazing turnaround for Los Angeles. With the entire city behind the Dodgers again, it will be an interesting offseason as the organization will look to improve their chances of making the World Series next season.
