Time to move to the other side of the bracket as we slowly put together our ELITE 8! The last battle featured an incredible game-winning throw by Chris Taylor and a game-tying home run from Kiké Hernandez.

As expected, the super memorable and super clutch moment that took place in the postseason won. It took in 68 percent of the vote on TBLA and 76 percent on Twitter.

Here’s an updated look at the bracket:


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.

Mookie Betts makes clutch double play

With so many amazing moments from the Dodgers’ postseason run, this seems to be one that is often overlooked. With one out in the third inning of Game 5, the Dodgers trailed by two runs. Mookie Betts made this incredible catch in right field, barely catching the ball before it hit the ground. He was too late getting the ball to the plate, as Marcell Ozuna scored... only, he was ruled out because he left third base too early. It was an inning-ending double play, and the turning point of the entire series.
