Dodgers Beat Brewers to Advance to 2nd Straight World Series
10/20/2018 11:32pm

The Dodgers are going back to the World Series.Christian Yelich hit a first inning homer to give Milwaukee the lead, but the Dodgers responded with home runs by Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig as they beat the Brewers, 5-1, to win the National League Championship Series four games to three.Ahead of the winner-take-all Game 7, I wrote that whichever team took a two-to-three run lead would go on to the World Series. As such, when a precious lead is achieved in these do-or-die games, everything else dissolves and as the world appears to steadily slow on its axis, the arduous counting of outs begins.Saturday morning started with the Dodgers waking up from the nightmares of a Game 7 loss at the hands of the Houston Astros in last years World Series. However, the sun would rise, a new day would come, and the opportunity to erase and exorcise some of those demons was at hand.27 outs left.After a scoreless first inning from Milwaukee starter Jhoulys Chacin, Yelich put the Brewers in front when he turned on a 98.5MPH fastball from rookie Walker Buehler for a solo shot.It was the second home run of the postseason from the presumed NL MVP, and it sent the sellout crowd at Miller Park into a frenzy as Milwaukee was seeking just their second ever World Series appearance, and first since moving to the National League in 1998.Milwaukees vaunted bullpen was ready and waiting, so as the Dodgers headed to the plate in the top half of the second inning, they knew they needed to answer the bell and silence the crowd.24 outs left.Similar to a WWE wrestling villain, Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado led off the second inning to a chorus of boos that drowned out any and all thoughts from players, to fans, to writers on deadline in the press box.Just days earlier, when asked why he didnt run out a groundball to first base in Game 2 of the series, Machado toldFox Sports reporterKen Rosenthal, I dont hustle. Its not in my personality. Im not the type of player thats going to be Johnny Hustle.Whether or not Machado becomes the second coming of Pete Rose Charlie Hustle not Johnny, is yet to be seen, but Machado did do his best impression of the Cincinnati Reds legend when he took everyone by surprise by laying down a full count bunt for an infield single.Manny Hustle went from home to first in 3.96 seconds on the bunt single, the fastest he was clocked making that trip all season long.Not only did Machado wisely play small ball to get something going, but also the move paid dividends when Bellinger followed with a 424-foot home run that put the Dodgers in front, 2-1.Bellingers blast was his first of the playoffs, and fourth of his career after he hit three home runs during his NL Rookie of the Year campaign during the 2017 regular and postseason.When Walker Buehler headed back to the mound for the bottom of the second inning, he was clinging to a slim one-run lead and needed to continue to throw zeroes in order to help his team reach the World Series.The stress and pressure alone is enough to turn any other 24-year-old into a deer in headlights, but not Buehler, not this rookie.Despite entering the game with a record of 0-1 and a 6.75 ERA in the postseason, Walker Buehler became just the third Dodger rookie to start a winner-take-all game in franchise history, joining Joe Black Game 7, 1952 World Series vs. Yankees and Fernando Valenzuela Game 5, 1981 NLCS vs. Montreal Expos.After the home run to Yelich, Buehler was unflappable, surrendering just the one run, on six hits with no walks and seven strikeouts in 4 and 2/3 outstanding innings.Buehler exited the game with two outs and the tying run on second base in the bottom of the fifth inning. Julio Urias came on in relief to face Yelich who crushed a 94MPH fastball to left field where Chris Taylor who started the game at second base made a leaping catch, falling into the warning track to keep the Dodgers in the lead.12 outs left. Remember to breathe.As the Dodgers batted in the top of the sixth inning, with the worlds best reliever in Josh Hader now out of the game, each pitch seemed to take an eternity. Each runner on base, either a dire threat, or the hope of city stuck in a 30-year title drought.Yasiel Puig stepped to the plate, with the knowledge and understanding of all this. Since joining the Dodgers in 2013, hes appeared in more postseason games than any other player in franchise history with 53. He knows how badly the City of Angels wants a championship he too yearns to host the Commissioners Trophy himself.Puig himself proclaimed the Dodgers would win the World Series last season. He did it again after they won their sixth consecutive NL West Division at the end of September. Accurately predicting the Dodgers would dispatch of the Atlanta Braves in the Division Series and eliminate the Milwaukee Brewers in the Leage Championship Series before advancing to the World Series and celebrating in the streets of Los Angeles in November.So with the weight of that prediction firmly on his strong shoulder, Puig stepped to the plate to stare down Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress, the same pitcher who surrendered the game-winning home run to Justin Turner in Game 2.Puig swung out of his shoes on a 95MPH fastball to start the at-bat, stared at another for a ball, and then crushed an 83MPH curveball for a line-drive, three-run homer that put the Dodgers ahead 5-1.It was easily the biggest home run in Puigs six-year career, and it sent the crowd from a rabid Miller Park mob, into a silent study hall and put the Dodgers on the precipice of their 11th World Series appearance in franchise history.Nine, eight, seven each out felt like a life-or-death proposition. Each reliever out of the Dodgers bullpen that recorded an out felt the collective exhale of Dodger fans across the globe, and the progressive groans of the Brewers fans in the building.The team that scored first in the series lost five of the seven games. The team that hit a leadoff home run in the final two games went on to lose the game. Baseball is random, that much we know, and whatever we thought we knew was turned on its head.Six, five, fourKenley Jansen, an All-Star closer that had his season in doubt after an irregular heartbeat sent him to a Denver hospital in early August mowed down Milwaukee hitters like he was a machine.Three outs left.The constant reminder of the mantra, all hands on deck, was apparent throughout the game as the tantalizing possibility that the Dodgers three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw would ride out of the bullpen on his white horse and sending the Dodgers back to the World Series as he did in Game of the NLCS in Chicago last year.Possibility became a reality when the 2014 MVP ran out of the bullpen to take the mound in the bottom of the ninth with the World Series on the line.Travis Shaw grounded out.Two outs left.Jesus Aguilar struck out.One out left.Kershaw struck out a fomer World Series winner in Mike Moustakas to send the Dodgers back to the World Series.The Dodgers became the first team since the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals to win a Game 7 of the LCS on the road, and won their 23rd NL pennant, tied with the Giants for the most in NL history.The Dodgers were once ten games below .500 in May, last place in the West division and facing the looming possibility that they might not make the postseason, let alone return to the World Series.Thankfully, the hangover cleared, and the Dodgers returned to their dominant self, finishing 30 games above .500 from that point on, finishing with 92 wins and their sixth consecutive division title.The role of underdog is unfamiliar for the Boys in Blue, they have always been the Goliath in the proverbial matchup with David. Nonetheless, when they face the Boston Red Sox 108 wins, and the best team in baseball all year long, they will be a substantial longshot.Ironically, they were the dark horse in the 1988 World Series against the 104-win Oakland Athletics with the bash brothers, the best starting rotation, and the best closer in the game.So maybe its not a coincidence that on this date, October 20th, 30 years ago, today, the Angeles Dodgers defeated the Oakland Athletics, 5-2, to win the 1988 World Series, the last championship they won.Heres hoping history repeats itself.Up Next:The World Series begins at Fenway Park in Boston on Tuesday night 5:09PM PT.Please refresh this page for more updates, stats, and player reactionsIf you cant view the embedded videos, click VIEW THE FULL MOBILE SITE at the bottom of this page.
