Christian Yelich hammers first NLCS home run in Game 7

The Dodgers will play the American League champion Boston Red Sox in the World Series, which begins Tuesday. Bellinger followed with a two-run homer that gave the Dodgers a 2-1 lead. The Dodgers were jolted by a two-run homer from Cody Bellinger in the top of the second - moments after a bunt single from Manny Machado - then waited out Josh Hader for the next three innings. The three-time Cy Young Award victor is coming off a masterful outing in Game 5 on Wednesday, when he allowed one run and three hits while fanning nine over seven innings in a 5-2 victory at Dodger Stadium. Urias allowed a line drive to Christian Yelich that left fielder Chris Taylor caught on the warning track with a sliding effort. Knebel threw 1.2 innings, facing six batters and didn't allow any hits or runs while striking out two. The Dodgers return for a second straight year, creating a rematch of the 1916 Fall Classic, won in five games by Boston, who was led by a 21-year-old pitcher named Babe Ruth.

Game 7 takes place in Milwaukee Saturday, with the Dodgers looking to rookie Walker Buehler to resurrect their World Series dream. I don't know. We're all going to come in ready to go next year. Milton native Rich Hill, 38, is in his second season pitching for the Dodgers and went 11-5 this year with a 3.66 ERA. Instead, the Dodgers received the better relief work - 4 ¹/₃ scoreless innings from the bullpen - to win their first Game 7 since the 1988 NLCS against the Mets.

Prices are likely to rise if the Los Angeles Dodgers win the National League pennant, and should remain stable if the Milwaukee Brewers advance, Lawrence said. Credit to them. They played great and they won.

Brewers right-hander Jhoulys Chacin worked out of further trouble to end the inning, which proved to be his final action of the game.

Damian Lillard scored 28 points for Portland and Nik Stauskas matched his career high with 24, on his debut. Walton also had James play alongside the four Lakers' prospects of Ingram, Kuzma, Ball and Hart.

Kratz has provided a lot of intangibles to this young Brewers club in the postseason, but let's not forget that he's been doing damage at the plate as well - Kratz is batting.333 with 3 RBI and.820 OPS in 21 at-bats between the Division Series and Championship Series.

Erik Kratz, Orlando Arcia and Chacin are at the bottom of the order. They lost back-to-back games to the woeful Cincinnati Reds from September 10 to 11, but they took three of four from the St. Louis Cardinals, then swept the Colorado Rockies and later won the last four games of their regular season, including a one-game tiebreaker on the first day of October.

"They took us on an wonderful journey", Counsell said about his team.
