Dodgers: Three Lessons Learned From the World Series Rematch
The Dodgers went to Boston for a three-game series with the Red Sox. It was a rematch of last year’s World Series and felt like a playoff series.
While it wasn’t quite a postseason series, last weekend’s World Series rematch certainly felt like a playoff series at times. The first two games of the series were not very close but the series finale was a closely contested ballgame that went extra innings. It almost brought back flashbacks of game three of the 2018 World Series that went eighteen innings.
The series may not have meant much from a standings perspective, but it was a litmus of sorts for the Dodgers against one of the premier teams from the American League. The Red Sox may be in third place in the AL East, but the Red Sox are still considered one of the top teams in the American League.
It wasn’t a perfect series for the Dodgers but they were able to go to Boston, a place they have not played well in historically, and took two out of three from the defending champs. Here are three lessons learned from the World Series rematch.
