The Los Angeles Dodgers celebrate after defeating the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 7 to win the National League Championship Series at Miller Park on Saturday, in Milwaukee. It will be the second straight season in the Fall Classic for the Dodgers, as they lost to the Houston Astros in seven games a year ago. 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.
But after the Yelich home run, Dodgers pitchers clamped down on the Brewers.
The game - highlighted by stellar pitching from rookie starter Walker Buehler, homers by Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig, and a ninth-inning close by Clayton Kershaw - ended up being the highest-rated cable broadcast of any Major League Baseball game in Los Angeles since 1998, Fox Sports says.
"Yelich looked like he would hurt the Dodgers again in the fifth with Lorenzo Cain on second with two outs".
Running at full speed to his left, Taylor extended his glove high in the air just as the ball settled into the mitt to end the inning. Cody Bellinger hit a two-run shot in the second that gave the Dodgers the lead. "If people see them play in a World Series game where they cap that off, they can definitively say they saw a World Series game with the best Red Sox team ever".
Who would have guessed at the start of the season the team would be only one win away from the World Series.

Mariota was the first player in over 30 years to complete 10 passes while being sacked over 10 times. Jackson's rush also set up a two-yard touchdown score by teammate and running back Alex Collins.
"That was the play of the game", said Bellinger, who was named NLCS MVP.
An American League team in 1982, the Brewers lost the Series in seven games that year to the St. Louis Cardinals. "I'm sure it rubs people the wrong way, but we know exactly how it is, and it's all fun and games". There were two runners on and Jeremy Jeffress was on the mound.
The Dodgers have battled throughout the postseason, and just won the first winner-take-all game of the playoffs in the National League Championship Series. You know what happened next - otherwise there wouldn't be a story about it.
The fans came to give it to Machado, but in the end, Machado and his Dodgers had the last laugh.
They'll have to dethrone the Dodgers. "I just enjoy it and just take it all in".
