What started as a four player tournament between Blake Snell, Amir Garrett, Trevor May and Hunter Pence; which Amir Garret won; has turned into one of the best things for avid fans of MLB The Show 20.
A 30-player tournament stated last week! One representative from each team are playing in a round-robin tournament! Each player has three 3-inning games each night starting at 6PM PST on various streaming platforms like Twitch and YouTube.
One of the best to watch has been Dodgers 2nd baseman Gavin Lux (Twitch: GLux9). His first game was against Juan Soto from the National. Lux ended up getting a walk-off against him which felt so great as a Dodgers fan! Lux jokingly mentioned that he wanted Soto to teach him the Soto Shuffle if he won.
Another great game by Gavin Lux was today against Joey Gallo who was undefeated prior to that game! Gavin beat Gallo 5-4 in a close finish. Gavin has a record of 9-3 which puts him near the top of the league. I fully expect him to make it to the playoffs.
Gavin’s record per day:
Day one: 3-1
Won against Juan Soto (Nationals)
Won against Josh Hader (Brewers)
Lost against Trevor May (Twins)
Won against David Dahl (Rockies)
Day two: 4-0
Won against Fernando Tatis Jr. (Padres)
Won against Carlos Santana (Indians)
Won against Jose Lozardo (Athletics)
Won against Hunter Pence (Giants)
Day three 1-3
Lost against Blake Snell (Rays)
Won against Joey Gallo (Rangers)
Lost against Bo Bichette (Blue Jays)
Lost against Ryne Stanek (Marlins)
