Dodgers Advance to Face Boston Red Sox in World Series

Milwaukee Brewers' Ryan Braun celebgrates with Lorenzo Cain after scoring on a double by Jesus Aguilar during the first inning of Game 6 of the National League Championship Series baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday Oct. 19 2018

An American League team in 1982, the Brewers lost the Series in seven games that year to the St. Louis Cardinals. We saw it work Friday night.

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.

And on Saturday night, October 20, fans hope to do the same thing again. The victor, of course, will move on to face the Boston Red Sox in the 2018 World Series. Now, they have a chance to make things right, starting with Game 1 Tuesday in Boston against a Red Sox team that won 108 games in the regular season and beat the Astros and New York Yankees to advance. Then four relievers shut out the Brewers the rest of the way, with closer Clayton Kershaw pitching a 1-2-3 ninth to close it out.

The Dodgers began receiving a whiff of champagne in the sixth when Puig's laser shot cleared the left-field fence against Jeremy Jeffress. Max Muncy and Justin Turner each singled in the inning to begin the rally.

Milwaukee took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning when star hitter Christian Yelich tagged a 1-0 pitch from Los Angeles starter Walker Buehler for a home run.

Jhoulys Chacin was removed after pitching only two innings for the Brewers in which he allowed two earned runs on three hits and one walk.

Yelich looked like he would get to the Dodgers again in the fifth with Lorenzo Cain on second with two outs.

The Dodgers they waited for lights-out left-hander Josh Hader to leave the game to get their bats going again. He has allowed a run in 3⅓ innings this postseason. Manny Machado, the object of nonstop boos from Milwaukee fans, obliged with the same gesture as he watched from the dugout steps.

The mighty Dodgers, who hit an NL-best 235 homers, outslugged the Brewers, who were second in the league with 218. Cody Bellinger followed with a two-run homer that gave the Dodgers a 2-1 lead.
