  • Brewers extend series; Sale to start WS opener for Sox

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

Last season's NL Rookie of the Year also singled home the winning run in the 13th inning of a 2-1 victory in Game 4.

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.

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. Chris Taylor, who started the game at second base ran the ball down, made a twisting jump for a simply incredible catch, stretching his Rawlings glove as far as it could go to save the inning as Bellinger jumped over the sprawled Taylor.

In the previous three games, Michel rushed for 316 yards and four touchdowns. Sometimes, sports cliches can prove to be deadly accurate.

The left-handed Urias got one of the biggest outs of the game in the fifth inning after relieving starter Walker Buehler.

Los Angeles was looking for its second straight NL pennant and some time to prepare for the mighty Boston Red Sox in the World Series.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who helped the Red Sox to the 2004 World Series title as a speedy reserve outfielder, forecast a great series ahead.

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. "But I do see him being a part of this equation". "It feels even better to get the last laugh".

What was the percentage, for instance, of Warren's Native American background? But Elizabeth Warren is not Native American. Based on these results, her father's parents would have had to identify her from her 1/512 native heritage.

As much as Puig can annoy the baseball traditionalist with his celebrations and emotion on the field, no one can ever say he doesn't love the game. "We've got one more game", Machado said. A fully rested Josh Hader followed and kept the Brewers afloat by continuing a dominant postseason.

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

The loss ended a remarkable year for the Brewers.

Erik Kratz, Orlando Arcia and Chacin are at the bottom of the order. He struck out seven and walked none. They lost back-to-back games to the woeful Cincinnati Reds from September 10 to 11, but they took three of four from the St. Louis Cardinals, then swept the Colorado Rockies and later won the last four games of their regular season, including a one-game tiebreaker on the first day of October. He went 5.1 innings and combined with four relievers in a five-hit, 14-strikeout staff gem.
