Arlington, Texas Corrie Seger achieved a rare double in October, becoming the best player in the World Series after claiming the honor of the League Series.
Just like Orel Hershiser did when the Los Angeles Dodgers won their previous World Championship title in 1988.
Seager fought .400 with two homers, five RBIs and six walks against the Tampa Bay Rays, including the sixth game that allowed Mookie Betts to head home from third base with the green light Tuesday night in Game 6. The short star jumped into the arms of a man The second rule, Kiki Hernandez, after Julio Urias beat Willie Adams to end the 3-1 victory, which won the championship.
“To be able to win and to be able to do it with a team like this, it means everything,” said Seager.
Especially after losing Game 7 to Houston three years ago and losing the entire 2018 season while injured.
He said, “It is clearly painful.” “This core has been around for two years now, and to know the feeling of loss, the ability to rebuild and return, maintain focus and the ability to finish it, it’s special.”
Seager achieved .310 with five lucky holders and 11 RBI winners in seven matches over Atlanta in the NL Championship Series, including three hurdles as the Dodgers fought in eliminations in matches 5 and 6. He led in rounds in five consecutive matches, beginning with His last two hits are in Game 2, comparing to a feat accomplished only by Houston player Carlos Beltran in 2004.
The former player named MVP in both the League Championship and World Championship that same year was San Francisco Archer Madison Bumgarner in 2014. Only eight players have done so – all from the National Leagues.
Sieger finished a post-season hit. 328 (22 versus 67) with eight Homer, 20 RBIs, and 11 walks. Others who won LCS and World Series MVP titles in one year are Willie Stargill of Pittsburgh (1979), St. Louis Daryl Porter (1982), Hirschser and Levan Hernandez in Marlins (2003), Philadelphia Cole Hamills (2008), and Cardinals David Frieze ( 2011) and Baumgarner.
Fellow Mookie Betts said of Seager, he “does everything right.” “He’s been big for us all year and he’s been steady the whole time, constantly taking two, three or four hits.”
Seager was the 18th overall pick in the Amateur Draft of 2012 and only 21 when it debuted in September 2015. It became a unanimous choice for the 2016 NL Rookie of the Year after scoring 0.308 with 26 homers and 72 RBIs, then making it second in a row All Team All-Star in 2017, when it hit 0.295 with 22 Homer and 77 RBI.
Seager missed the 2017 NL Championship due to a back injury, then returned to the World Series against Houston and hit .222 (6 to 27) with four RBIs. He had Homer from two rounds from Justin Verlander in the Dodgers’ loss 5–3 in Match 3 and was a 1-on-4 batsman at the end of the match against Charlie Morton in the 5–1 defeat in match 7.
Then Seger missed the entire 2018 season when he did not play after April 29 due to a rupture of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow which required Tommy John’s surgery. He also underwent surgery on his left thigh.
When he returned for 2019, he was slowed by a left hamstring tension that kept him away from mid-June through mid-July, but he’s still tied with the National League progressing 44 doubles. He then scored a .307 best team with 15 homeowners and 41 RBIs in this short Pandemic season.
The highlight of the regular season came on August 17, when he played against his brother, Seattle III captain Kyle Seager, for the first time in major tournaments and became the first Homer siblings in the same game since San Diego Cesar Crespo and San. Felipe Crespo from Francisco on June 7, 2001.
With the finals nearing the title, Seager is finally getting butterflies.
He said, “Certainly, nerves have begun to creep in.” “But you have to rule them out. You have to finish the work. We know more than anyone that the game is not over until you win 27 wins. So being able to do that in the end and get the last match and win the last game is surreal. This is incredible.” .
