LA Dodgers down Milwaukee Brewers; Dodgers head to World Series

We heard the Brewers say time and time again that they need fans to get loud for them - that cheering, that celebrating, energizes the team.

Los Angeles Dodgers' Yasiel Puig (66) hits a three-run home run during the sixth inning of Game 7 of the National League Championship Series baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, in Milwaukee.

With the win, the Dodgers will return to the World Series for the second year in a row, to face off against the Boston Red Sox - and look to rewrite last year's fate, after losing Game 7 of the World Series to the Houston Astros. Instead, the Dodgers received the best relief work - 4 ¹/₃ scoreless innings from the bullpen - to win their first Game 7 since the 1988 NLCS against the Mets. The three-time Cy Young Award victor, pitching on two days of rest after starting Game 5, finished off the Brewers by striking out Mike Moustakas in a ideal ninth. Max Muncy and Justin Turner each singled in the inning to begin the rally.

Christian Yelich put Milwaukee ahead with a solo home run in the first inning off rookie Walker Buehler.

Clergy abuse investigated in Buffalo, New York
Following the 14 August grand jury report, Pope Francis condemned the "atrocities" of child sex abuse and clerical cover-ups. Paulson's victims were 8 and 15 years old when authorities say he began abusing them between 2002 and 2010.

The left-handed Urias got one of the biggest outs of the game in the fifth inning, after relieving starter Walker Buehler.

Christian Yelich almost tied it in the fifth, but left fielder Chris Taylor's sliding catch on the warning track robbed Yelich, with Lorenzo Cain on second base. He struck out four of the 10 batters he faced.

He had just launched a three-run homer to break the tension of the early going. Cody Bellinger hit a two-run shot in the second that gave Los Angeles the lead. It was a needed contribution from Yelich, who entered batting only.188 this postseason.
