If you had a chance to catch the game last night, I must congratulate you. What a great baseball game to watch, not just for Dodgers fans but baseball fans too. Puig was the hero with his walk off double. What he had to say after the game got everyone excited!
In an interview after the game, Yasiel Puig said: “…see you in the World Series”. Something that everyone was thinking but Puig finally said. The Dodgers are now more than 50 games over .500 and almost 20 games over the D-Backs. Puig’s claim is certainly not far fetched. If the winning pattern continues, the Dodgers will be well into 100 wins and they even have a chance at the best end of season record, ever! All of which must be finished with a World Series championship in order to officially claim it as the best team ever.
Puig’s at bat last night was one of the best that we’ve ever seen from him. He fought off a couple two strike foul balls before finally splitting the gaps bringing home Austin Barnes; the winning run. Puig’s maturity has been so big for the Dodgers this year, and a lot of it can be attributed to the constant mentoring and nurturing from manager Dave Roberts.
Everyone is hoping that Puig keeps his word, and we get to see the Dodgers in a World Series game. 1988 was the last year the Dodgers made a visit to the fall classic, the iconic Kirk Gibson home run played a part in giving the Dodgers a championship. now, 29 years later, the Dodgers are hoping for a similar story. Joe Davis gave one of the greatest end-of-game, walk off calls that I have ever heard. “It’s not a matter of if,
Joe Davis gave one of the greatest end-of-game, walk off calls that I have ever heard. “It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of who and when. Tonight it’s Puig, in the bottom of the ninth!”
