LA Dodgers down Milwaukee Brewers; Dodgers head to World Series

Brewers extend series; Sale to start WS opener for Sox

In tonight's Game 7, the Brewers started right-hander Jhoulys Chacin in the game, but were forced to quickly go to bullpen weapon Josh Hader when Chacin proved ineffective, giving up a two-run home run to Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger in the second inning.

The Red Sox punched their World Series ticket on Thursday night when they beat the Astros 4-1, eliminating the defending champions from the ALCS in just five games.

Persistence flowed like clubhouse bubbly for several players as the resilient Dodgers booked a return trip to the World Series by defeating the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in Game 7 of the NLCS. Instead of Milwaukee evening the score, Los Angeles held on to its one-run lead.

The Dodgers began receiving a whiff of champagne in the sixth when Puig's laser shot cleared the left-field fence against Jeremy Jeffress.

The Dodgers overwhelmed the young Atlanta Braves in the NL Division Series, then outlasted a Brewers team that used creative and at times unprecedented methods to make up for deficiencies in its rotation.

The last time Los Angeles won the World Series was in 1988.

Chad Kelly arrested early Tuesday morning
Rapoport says Elway is "extremely angry" and all options, including releasing the second-year quarterback, are still on the table. The man told police the doors to the residence were locked, but there were no signs of forced entry, according to the affidavit.

Milwaukee´s Lorenzo Cain hit a two-out double in the fifth and Yelich followed with a long fly ball to left field but Dodgers´ outfielder Chris Taylor raced for the catch to deny the Brewers the tying run and end the inning. He robbed Yelich of an extra-base hit with a runner on second and two outs.

This postseason has been unforgettable for the Brewers and the city of Milwaukee, but few will remember the Brewers' 2018 run like Erik Kratz, whose entire career has been validated by what he has done for his current club as they vie for their first World Series berth since 1982, when they were in the American League.

A big lead, a bruising bullpen and a boisterous crowd had the Milwaukee Brewers all set up for Game 7.

"I knew it was in the gap", Taylor said. It was Puig's first home run of the championship series.

What a surge for a team that was 10 games under.500 on May 16.

The Dodgers used a secret relief weapon of their own in the bottom of the ninth, bringing on starter Clayton Kershaw for the final inning to close out the Brewers in three batters. They didn't coast into the playoffs - in fact, just a few months into the season, some had already written off the struggling Dodgers. "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.
