The Dodgers will play the American League champion Boston Red Sox in the World Series, which begins Tuesday.

Yasiel Puig delivered arguably the biggest blow of Game 7 with a monster 3-run home run against the Milwaukee Brewers, and he knew exactly how to celebrate.

With his Dodgers up 2-1 in the top of the sixth in Game 7 of the NLCS, Puig took Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress deep for a three-run shot to give the defending National League champs a comfortable 5-1 lead.

Puig broke it open with his drive in the sixth. The likely NL MVP put a charge into it, which Chris Taylor tracked down in left-center field for a sliding catch.

"Yelich looked like he would hurt the Dodgers again in the fifth with Lorenzo Cain on second with two outs".

Oddsmakers at the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook set the Red Sox as minus-135 favorites in early betting, with the Dodgers made plus-115 to win the Series. 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.

It was a heartbreaking finish for the Brewers, who fell one game shy of making their second trip to the final. Victor goes to the World Series; loser packs up and goes home.

"I know how lucky I am to be a part of it two years in a row", Bellinger said. It was just his fourth time in the leadoff spot in his 10 years in the majors. Then Yelich, who homered in the first inning against Dodgers starter Walker Buehler, seemingly followed suit. "So, I just felt that we needed to get some more innings out of Hyun-Jin to keep our highest leverage guys available for a potential Game 7".

The numbers weren't totally gaudy, but the 23-year-old outfielder got the job done when it mattered most.

"Every single person in this room has their fingerprints on this season", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told his players in the champagne spray-filled locker room.

Rookie Buehler has been a relatively easy target for batters in the playoffs after allowing a cumulative nine runs and two homers over his last two appearances. He'll have his moments, but Puig can play this game and he can play it great.

The Brewers are sticking with the same lineup from Game 6, when they had 11 hits to break out of a slump for a 7-2 victory that tied the series at three games apiece. The lefty fireballer provided three scoreless innings in which he allowed two base runners and struck out four.
