2021 MLB Playoff Recap

With the conclusion of the World Series, the 2021 MLB season has come and gone. With so many great memories from the season, the World Series ending was nothing short of matching that. To recap who won each round in the American League, the Red Sox defeated the Yankees in the ALWC. The Red Sox moved on to play the Rays in the ALDS and won the series 3-1. To see who would play the Red Sox, the Astros took on the White Sox. The Astros handled the series, to win 3-1. In the ALCS, both teams fought hard till the end, but evidently, the Astros defeated the Sox in 6 games. 

In the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Cardinals on a walk-off home run to win the NLWC. The Dodgers moved on to play the Giants in the NLDS. This was a matchup of two heavyweight teams, who were atop the league all season. The Dodgers pulled away, winning the series 3-2. The Dodgers were aligned to play the winner of the Braves/Brewers series, in which the Braves handled business, winning in 4 games. The Dodgers were set up to play the Braves in the NLCS. Though the Dodgers were heavy favorites to win the series, the Braves won in 6 games, giving them their first World Series since 1999. 

The season’s final games were between the Astros and the Braves. After the first two games in Houston, the series was tied 1-1 heading to Atlanta for 3 games. The Braves won 2 games, making the series 3-1. Hope was still alive for Astro fans, as Georgia sports teams have a reputation for blowing leads as of late. The Braves ended that, by winning the World Series, their first time since 1995. 

The 2021 MLB season has finally come to an end, with 29/30 MLB team fans sad. The regular season starts March 29, 2022. Lots will happen between then and now, but all baseball fans are excited for the season to reset all over again!
