Dodgers advance to second straight World Series

The embattled Yasiel Puig might have etched his name in the Los Angeles Dodgers' history book Saturday evening in Milwaukee.

The Los Angeles Dodgers outlasted the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in the deciding Game 7 of the National League Championship Series Saturday night.

Yelich just cleared the right-field fence above Puig's glove in the first inning for a solo homer that gave the Brewers their first run.

Puig might not be Mr. October, but Twitter certainly treated him like that following the monstrous blast.

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

In tonight's Game 7, the Brewers started right-hander Jhoulys Chacin in the game, but were forced to quickly go to bullpen weapon Josh Hader when Chacin proved ineffective, giving up a two-run home run to Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger in the second inning.


"It's pretty cool. It's going to be a pretty special series", newly crowned NLCS MVP Bellinger said, according to the AP.

Well, the Brewers won Game 6 of the National League Championship Series without Hader, 7-2.

Clayton Kershaw ended this one by pitching a flawless ninth inning, beginning the official Dodgers celebration, amid silence from most of the sellout crowd of 44,097.

The best-of-seven World Series begins Tuesday night at Boston, home of the American League champion Red Sox. "I know how lucky I am to be a part of it two years in a row". Buehler pitched 4 2/3 innings, giving up six hits and allowing just the one run.

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