Red Sox favoured slightly over Dodgers in World Series

The Dodgers responded in the top of the second, however, as Bellinger hit a two-run homer into the second deck in right to give Los Angeles a 2-1 lead.

The National League Championship Series has been a riveting battle between the Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers.

The game did not start out on the right foot for the Dodgers as Christian Yelich hit a home run just over the glove of Yasiel Puig.

Los Angeles was beginning to get some momentum, cutting Milwaukee's lead to 5-2, with David Freese on second base, and Max Muncy on first. "They earned an opportunity to go to the World Series", Brewers left fielder, Ryan Braun, said of the Dodgers.

The best-of-seven World Series begins Tuesday night at Boston, home of the American League champion Red Sox. The likely NL MVP put a charge into it, which Chris Taylor tracked down in left-center field for a sliding catch. 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.

Bidding for its first World Series appearance since 1982, Milwaukee finished 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position while striking out 14 times against the Dodgers.

Clayton Kershaw ended this one by pitching a ideal ninth inning, beginning the official Dodgers celebration, amid silence from most of the sellout crowd of 44,097. Thompson has also shown a strong knowledge on how both of these team's work, going a combined 22-8 on games involving Los Angeles or Milwaukee. Hader tossed three shutout innings, striking out four before being pulled after 31 pitches.

"We feel like we've got a lot of talent here", Yelich said. 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. By the ninth inning, star pitcher Clayton Kershaw stepped in as relief pitcher to finish off the Brewers with the final three outs.

"It's such a great season for the Red Sox [with] 108 wins".

What a surge for a team that was 10 games under.500 on May 16. They didn't coast into the playoffs - in fact, just a few months into the season, some had already written off the struggling Dodgers.

A loss to the Astros in Game 7 of last year's World Series was followed by a conservative offseason, one motivated by the organization's desire to dip under the luxury-tax threshold.
