Brewers extend series; Sale to start WS opener for Sox

Now Bellinger and Bradley face off in the World Series beginning Tuesday night at Fenway Park.

The Dodgers are headed to the World Series for a second straight season - they lost to the Astros a year ago in Game 7.

The Dodgers got a strong start from rookie right-hander Walker Buehler, who managed to go 4 ²/₃ innings, which is practically a complete game compared to the Brewers.

The visitors got off to a dream start when leadoff hitter David Freese smashed a 402-feet homer to right center field to give them a 1-0 first inning lead.

The Dodgers overwhelmed the young Atlanta Braves in the NL Division Series, then outlasted a Brewers team that used creative and at times unprecedented methods to make up for deficiencies in its rotation.

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

The Los Angeles Dodgers are now four wins away from being two World Series titles away from tying the Giants' mark this decade.

The Dodgers - out of it in May, reeling in August, desperate throughout September - are heading back to the World Series, where the American League champion Boston Red Sox await.

It was a heartbreaking finish for the Brewers, who fell one game shy of making their second trip to the final.

Game 7 against the Dodgers was the first at home for the franchise, coming 36 years to the day after losing the seventh game to the Cardinals in the Series. "I know how lucky I am to be a part of it two years in a row".

Jesus Aguilar, Mike Moustakas and Erik Kratz all drove in first innings runs as the Dodgers' South Korean pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin turned in his worst performance of the 2018 season at just the wrong time.

"We´ll celebrate tonight but we´ve still got more to go".

Buehler lasted 4 2/3 innings, striking out seven Brewers batters.

Brewers fans are of course sad their baseball season is over, but they are so proud of how hard their team played, fighting to the very end.

The loss ended a remarkable year for the Brewers.

Chacin (1-1) allowed two runs on three hits in two innings, walking one.

Brewers bullpen ace Josh Hader entered in the third inning, with his team behind 2-1, and helped keep the score frozen.

Erik Kratz contributed to the Brewers' victory like he has all of October. He struck out seven and walked none.

"This series could have went either way", Roberts said. They didn't coast into the playoffs - in fact, just a few months into the season, some had already written off the struggling Dodgers.
