Paul, who had the best record in the league, lost 4 games to 1 to Dougald. Paul’s team just never got on track offensively.
In the Tim-Robert series, injuries were a huge story. Robinson Cano, Yasiel Puig, Ronald Acuna, and Carlos Carrasco were hurt and replaced for the series. Cano is out for the playoffs. That matters because everything went Tim’s way (beyond the injuries) and Tim swept Robert.
The World Series, starting with Game 1, Dougald at Tim, will be Tuesday.
