The Dodgers are hosting World Series games 3, 4 and 5 (if necessary.) The team encourages fans to go to Dodgers.com for "the best selection of tickets from the team and secondary market partners".

Oh, and you can't forget the throat slash he did in the dugout.

"It's uplifting for the city because there's so much bad stuff happening this would be something positive they can get into", said a fan.

The Los Angeles Dodgers booked a return trip to the World Series behind steady power and sturdy pitching on Sunday [AEDT], defeating the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in game seven of the National League championship series. Credit to them. They played great and they won. The second-oldest venue, Chicago´s Wrigley Field, hosted the World Series in 2016 when the Cubs won their first title since 1908. Walker Buehler settled in after that and Cody Bellinger hit a two run home run in the second inning that ultimately put the Dodgers up for good for the remainder of the game.

Taylor said that it was so loud in the outfield that trying to communicate with Bellinger in centre while tracking Yelich's liner in the gap in the fifth was hard.

That led Brewers star Christian Yelich to call Machado a dirty player. "To do it two years in a row is really special", Bellinger said. Manny Machado laid down a flawless bunt in a 3-2 count, Bellinger provided the signature moment of the game next.

Brewers right-hander Jhoulys Chacin worked out of further trouble to end the inning, which proved to be his final action of the game. Hader tossed three shutout innings, striking out four before being pulled after 31 pitches. He struck out seven and walked none. "We showed what we're capable of", Brewers reliever, Corey Knebel, said. He has allowed a run in 3⅓ innings this postseason. There were two runners on and Jeremy Jeffress was on the mound.

"The group of guys that we have here, the talent that we have, the sky's the limit".

Urias, Ryan Madson, Kenley Jansen and Clayton Kershaw combined for 4 1/3 innings of one-hit relief. Without question, Hader extended Milwaukee's opportunity to get back in the ballgame.

The Dodgers stood at 16-26 on May 16 and did not climb over.500 until June 10.

The Dodgers played a historically bad Game 1, committing four errors and two passed balls, but Turner's late home run saved them in Game 2.
