The Red Sox will face the Dodgers in the World Series beginning Tuesday.

The win was particularly sweet for Big Blue, as they lost a similar opportunity previous year by dropping a Game 7 showdown to the Houston Astros in the World Series.

While Yelich put up monster numbers during the regular season, including a.326/.402/.598 batting line, 36 home runs, and a 1.000 OPS, his power all but evaporated during the Brewers' postseason run.

Cody Bellinger hit a two-run homer in the top of the second inning to give Los Angeles a 2-1 lead it would never give back. Then, in the next half inning, Yasiel Puig padded the lead with a three-run home run.

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

Milwaukee´s Lorenzo Cain hit a two-out double in the fifth and Yelich followed with a long fly ball to left field but Dodgers´ outfielder Chris Taylor raced for the catch to deny the Brewers the tying run and end the inning. He took the loss in Game 3 of the NLCS after allowing four runs and six hits over seven innings.

They haven't won a World Series since the Kirk Gibson days of 1988, but they have another chance. The Dodgers and Red Sox have met once before in the World Series, back in 1916 with Boston beating Brooklyn behind a big game from pitcher Babe Ruth.

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 knew it was in the gap", Taylor said.

Key team stats: The Dodgers were first in the NL and second in Major League Baseball with 235 home runs, trailing only the Yankees.

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

"It doesn´t matter how you get there", Kershaw said. "The rest of the game, whenever we got in a scoring situation it got really loud". He'll have his moments, but Puig can play this game and he can play it great.

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

Pitching for the first time since Game 4, Hader struck out four, walked one and allowed one hit in three innings of scoreless relief.

Erik Kratz, Orlando Arcia and Chacin are at the bottom of the order.

"We haven't accomplished our goal yet", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told his players as they prepared to pop champagne corks in the winners' clubhouse.
