When she did this scene, it didn’t draw that much attention because she wasn’t very well known. Although she was 19 and making her nude debut, she attracted no support in our annual poll of the best nude scenes. I think it would be different if she had done this scene this year. The Kissing Booth films have since put her on the map, and she seems on the cusp of stardom.

Steady, unheralded Chris Taylor, just a solid utility guy surrounded by superstars, was Wednesday’s hero with a two-out homer in the bottom of the ninth.

Taylor was a defensive replacement. He didn’t start the game because he finished the season in a mammoth slump, 8-for-72, and he had batted only .157 since August 11th.

Taylor played six positions this year. The legendary super-utility man Gil McDougald once said, “I always knew I’d be in the line-up, but I never knew which glove I’d need.” Taylor is like that. He’s the team’s designated McDougald. (Taylor is actually more useful than Gil, because McDougald only played the infield.)


Now it’ll be 107 wins against 106.
