LA Dodgers down Milwaukee Brewers; Dodgers head to World Series

Brewers extend series; Sale to start WS opener for Sox

The Dodgers will try to win their seventh World Series title against the Boston Red Sox with the series starting in Boston on Tuesday.

Heading into Game 7 of the National League Championship Series, conventional wisdom held that the Los Angeles Dodgers needed to be the team that scored first.

Los Angeles struck again in the sixth with singles by Max Muncy and Justin Turner and a fielder´s choice from Bellinger setting up Puig´s three-run homer, boosting the Dodgers´ lead to 5-1.

The Los Angeles Dodgers outlasted the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in the deciding Game 7 of the National League Championship Series Saturday night.

The Dodgers will now make the 20th World Series appearance in franchise history - tied with the Giants for second most in the majors - and will look to become the first NL team since the 1944 Cardinals to win it all one year after losing in the final round. Urias allowed a line drive to Christian Yelich that left fielder Chris Taylor caught on the warning track with a sliding effort.




Chacin only pitched two innings and reliever Josh Hader, who had 12 regular-season saves, pitched three strong innings, giving up just one hit and no runs, to keep the Brewers in the game. Each team is posted at -105 in the lasted Dodgers vs. Brewers odds, meaning you'd need to bet $105 to win $100.

The Dodgers had a much more hard road to the World Series than the Red Sox. They fell behind early and never recovered in Game 6, but they put the pressure on the Brewers early in Game 7 and held on. This placed LA in a division series matchup against the NL East champion Atlanta Braves, whom the Dodgers defeated in four games. Then Yelich, who homered in the first inning against Dodgers starter Walker Buehler, seemingly followed suit. I don't know. We're all going to come in ready to go next year.

After Wade Miley pitched into the fifth inning in his second straight start - he faced only one batter in Game 5 - Knebel, Jeffress and Corbin Burnes closed it out with hitless relief. "But historically, it's middle of the pack over the last nine years, if it doesn't go to seven (games)", said Jesse Lawrence, founder of ticket website TicketIQ.

The Dodgers stood at 16-26 on May 16 and did not climb over.500 until June 10.

"We haven't accomplished our goal yet", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told his players as they prepared to pop champagne corks in the winners' clubhouse.
