After a few days off, we’re back with the latest matchup in our bracket for the best moment of the 2020 season. As most of the battles have been so far, this last one wasn’t close either.

Chris Taylor’s game-winning throw received a cool 95 percent of the vote on TBLA, where it received 92 percent of the vote over Twitter. Here’s an updated look at the bracket and where it stands. I have a feeling that today’s matchup will be pretty lopsided as well, but who knows!

deliver for LA in the postseason? A number of times. However, arguably his biggest moment as a Dodger came in the bottom of the sixth in game 7 of the NLCS. Trailing a run, Hernández absolutely launched the game-tying homer into the bleachers. On the eighth pitch of the AB, he brought his Dodgers right back into the game. We all know how this game ended..... and it’s largely due to this at bat right here.

Clayton Kershaw moves into second place in strikeouts

Clayton Kershaw is going to retire as the greatest pitcher in Dodgers history. He’s moving up the leaderboards in every category, including strikeouts. On August 20, Kershaw struck out 11, passing Don Drysdale and moving into second place all-time in franchise history in strikeouts with 2,526 currently in his career. He now only trails Don Sutton, who has 2,696 career strikeouts with LA. There’s a chance Kershaw can surpass that number next season.
