2020 Postseason

In the 2020 postseason, the San Diego Padres outlasted the Diamondbacks in the National League Wild Card. The Padres would go on to face Los Angeles Dodgers in one half of the National League Division Series (NLDS), which they defeated them in four games, winning the series three games to one.

In the other half of the NLDS, the Cincinnati Reds defeated the defending champions Washington Nationals three games to one. They now take on the Padres in the National League Championship Series. Unfourtantly the Padres season came to an end as the Reds took down them in five games (4-1), winning and advancing to the World Series.

The Astros would go on to face Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels in the Division Series but fell short as they lost in five games (3-2).

The other half of the American League Divison Series, the Minnesota Twins, didn’t have quite enough juice as they lost to the Boston Red Sox three games to one. In five games, the Boston Red Sox defeated Los Angeles Angels (4-1) to advance to the World Series and face the Reds.
