The Dodgers started off their season strong this year, and they managed to keep it that way as the best team in the national league.

Pitcher Clayton Kershaw, often described as the best pitcher in baseball, still hasn’t lost since July.

The team also has an MVP candidate in first baseman and outfielder Cody Bellinger.

And in a game last Tuesday, the Dodgers were down by three in the bottom of the ninth, but came back with a miraculous victory.

As remarkable as this season has been for the team, the question remains whether they will make it back to the World Series.
