For the second consecutive season, the Los Angeles Dodgers will be playing in the World Series as they defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in Game 7 on the road.
Christian Yelich hit a solo home run in the first-inning for the Brewers off of Walker Buehler.
Cody Bellinger hit a two-run homer for the Dodgers in the second-inning off of Jhoulys Chacin. Bellinger won the NLCS MVP.
In the bottom of the fifth-inning, Christian Yelich hit a fly ball to left field and it appeared to be in the gap, but Chris Taylor made a diving catch with two outs. Milwaukee would have tied the game because a runner was on second base.
It changed the game because Yasiel Puig hit a three-run homer for the Dodgers in the sixth-inning off of Jeremy Jeffress.
Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell over managed his bullpen and it came back to bite him.
Ryan Madison (1-0) was the winning pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He pitched 1.2 innings and gave up one hit and struck out two batters.
Starting pitcher Walker Buehler pitched 4.2 innings and gave up six hits and struck out seven batters.
Jhoulys Chacin (1-1) was the losing pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers. He pitched two innings and gave up three hits and two runs. Chacin also walked a batter.
Clayton Kershaw pitched the ninth-inning for the Dodgers and he struck out two batters.
The Los Angeles Dodgers will be on the road against the Boston Red Sox to start the World Series starting on Tuesday night. They haven’t won since 1988 and they lost in seven games last season against the Houston Astros. The Milwaukee Brewers season concludes.
