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

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 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. That gave Los Angeles a 2-1 lead.

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

The Dodgers failed to muster much else during the rest of the game, and Knebel's relief stint proved to be huge in helping the Brewers get to a Game 7.

The Brewers had their chances against rookie starter Walker Buehler, a 24-year-old right-hander who navigated through trouble over 4 2/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked none.

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.

Now they've made baseball's final series of the year in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1977-78. Saturday's game will decide who will advance to the World Series: the Dodgers or the Brewers. The Sox are going for their ninth World Series championship, and fourth since 2004.

The win was particularly sweet for Big Blue, as they lost a similar opportunity previous year by dropping a Game 7 showdown to the Houston Astros in the World Series.

Game 2 is Wednesday at Boston before the series shifts to the National League city for Game 3 on Friday and Game 4 on Saturday. They are seeking their seventh World Series title and first since 1988.
