Another fairly easy decision....

One side of the bracket is officially done, time to move to the other! Kiké Hernández and his heroic homer in Game 7 of the NLCS won, to no surprise. He received 90 percent of the vote on TBLA and received 90 percent of the vote as well on Twitter. This is the first time we’ve had an identical finish for both polls.

Here’s an update as to how the left side of the bracket is looking.


Cody Bellinger go-ahead homer in Game 7 of NLCS

After trailing the NLCS 3-1, the Dodgers rallied and won two in a row to even the series at three games a piece. The previous matchup involved Kiké Hernández hitting the game-tying home run in Game 7. Well, now we have the go-ahead home run from that game, courtesy of Cody Bellinger. This solo shot gave the Dodgers the lead, and ultimately the series victory.

Will Smith walk-off hit

This won the Dodgers a game, but it wasn’t as important. No offense, Fresh Prince. The Dodgers came back two separate times. They trailed 1-0 entering the ninth inning and rallied to send the game to extras. Arizona jumped ahead again in the 10th, but the Dodgers scored two in the bottom of the inning to walk it off.
