Los Angeles Dodgers beat Milwaukee Brewers to reach World Series

Share

Walker Buehler (8-5, 2.62) went one inning two long in his Game 3 start, giving up two runs in the seventh in a seven-inning, four-run outing.

It was a tight game until the sixth inning, when Yasiel Puig's three-run homer handed the Dodgers a promising cushion. Entering Saturday's game, he's collected just two extra bases - a two-run homer in Game 1 of the NLDS and a double in Game 6 of the NLCS - and maintained a sluggish.188 average over nine games so far. Urias allowed a line drive to Christian Yelich that left fielder Chris Taylor caught on the warning track with a sliding effort. His two-run blast in the second inning got the Dodgers started Saturday.

The Dodgers will now make the 20th World Series appearance in franchise history - tied with the Giants for second most in the majors - and will look to become the first NL team since the 1944 Cardinals to win it all one year after losing in the final round.

The Dodgers had a much more hard road to the World Series than the Red Sox.

The mighty Dodgers, who hit an NL-best 235 homers, out-slugged the Brewers, who were second in the league with 218.

This postseason has been unforgettable for the Brewers and the city of Milwaukee, but few will remember the Brewers' 2018 run like Erik Kratz, whose entire career has been validated by what he has done for his current club as they vie for their first World Series berth since 1982, when they were in the American League. Add it all up and I see the Brew Crew celebrating with a champagne party Saturday night before heading to Boston for the team's first World Series in 36 years. In fact, Hader threw more innings and pitches than that eight times as a minor leaguer past year.

That's Puig's first home run of the postseason.

Buehler lasted 4 2/3 innings, striking out seven Brewers batters. "We never tire of the situation, and we just go out there and compete. We've got one more game", Machado said. Credit to them. They played great and they won.

The loss ended a remarkable year for the Brewers.

Kenley Jansen tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings before yielding to Kershaw in the ninth. Counsell pinch-hit for Chacin with two on and two out in the bottom of the second, but Jonathan Schoop grounded out to end the threat. He's allowed just three hits, five walks, three runs and has struck out 25 when working on three days of rest. "And they gave us all we could handle".
