Betts was a difference-maker for the Dodgers in his first season in Los Angeles.
The speedy outfielder bolted from third for the go-ahead run on Corey Seager’s infield grounder in the sixth and led off the eighth with a punctuating homer Tuesday night, helping the Dodgers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 to claim their first World Series championship since 1988.MORE NEWS: Huge Waves, High Tides Raises Fears Of Coastal Flooding In Newport Beach
