Los Angeles fell short past year, losing to Houston in Game 7.

While Yelich put up monster numbers during the regular season, including a.326/.402/.598 batting line, 36 home runs, and a 1.000 OPS, his power all but evaporated during the Brewers' postseason run.

The best-of-seven World Series begins Tuesday night at Boston, home of the American League champion Red Sox.

Jhoulys Chacin was removed after pitching only two innings for the Brewers in which he allowed two earned runs on three hits and one walk.

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

Clayton Kershaw ended this one by pitching a flawless ninth inning, beginning the official Dodgers celebration, amid silence from most of the sellout crowd of 44,097. The MVP candidate hit a high, hard liner to left that seemed destined to fall in for a double.

The Dodgers they waited for lights-out left-hander Josh Hader to leave the game to get their bats going again.

The Brewers now trail 2-1 in the second following Cody Bellinger's two-RBI blast off of Jhoulys Chacín in the top of the inning.

Milwaukee's vaunted bullpen scuffled in the sixth.

The excitable outfielder raised both arms as he rounded second, wiggling his fingers skyward to mimic the Brewers' trademark celebration move. A late surge led by Yelich lifted Milwaukee from 5 1/2 games out of the NL Central lead on August 28 to one win short of the franchise's second World Series appearance. He got Turner to fly out, then struck out Manny Machado.

Aside from the lack of hustle on the grounder early in the series, he also had two questionable slides and appeared to purposefully clip Brewers first baseman Jesús Aguilar's ankle on a groundout to first base.

With the series now tied for the Brewers, fans are anxiously awaiting the outcome of Saturday night's game.

But after the Yelich home run, Dodgers pitchers clamped down on the Brewers.

They'll have to dethrone the Dodgers.
