LA Dodgers down Milwaukee Brewers; Dodgers head to World Series

It's another year of waiting for a Brewers franchise that hasn't won a pennant since 1982 and is without a World Series championship in its 50 seasons in existence.

The win was particularly sweet for Big Blue, as they lost a similar opportunity past year by dropping a Game 7 showdown to the Houston Astros in the World 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 Puig's first home run of the championship series.

Added Brady: "It's been a lot of fun, I think for all of us, for all of these teams, to kind of be a part of winning in your own team but being there to kind of celebrate everyone else's wins too". Then four relievers shut out the Brewers the rest of the way, with closer Clayton Kershaw pitching a 1-2-3 ninth to close it out.

Barcelona deny they want to bring Neymar back
Neymar also said reports in Brazil that he had been in Barcelona were incorrect, pointing out that he had been in Portugal. Senior Barcelona players have assured president Josep Maria Bartomeu they would be happy to welcome back Neymar .

Brewers right fielder Christian Yelich opened the scoring with one out in the first inning, delighting the sellout crowd of 44,097 by smacking a solo home run to right field.

The emotion and elation of this trek manifested in the persona of one man, Yasiel Puig, as he rounded the bases in Saturday's sixth inning. Julio Urias replaced Buehler to get the final out of the fifth on Yelich's shot. That gave Los Angeles a 2-1 lead. Manny Machado, the object of nonstop boos from Milwaukee fans, obliged with the same gesture as he watched from the dugout steps.

The mighty Dodgers, who hit an NL-best 235 homers, outslugged the Brewers, who were second in the league with 218. It was a needed contribution from Yelich, who entered batting only.188 this postseason.
