Cody Bellinger hit a two-run homer in the top of the second inning to give Los Angeles a 2-1 lead it would never give back.

With their 23rd pennant, the Dodgers have matched the rival Giants for most among NL teams. This placed LA in a division series matchup against the NL East champion Atlanta Braves, whom the Dodgers defeated in four games. I don't know. We're all going to come in ready to go next year. Then Yelich, who homered in the first inning against Dodgers starter Walker Buehler, seemingly followed suit. "The rest of the game, whenever we got in a scoring situation it got really loud". Buehler helped set the tone for the pitching staff with a strong start, limiting the Brewers to one run and six hits in 4 2/3 innings while striking out seven. "They're warriors, and they listen and they want to be great". They were lulled to a Game 3 loss, but prevailed in 13 innings in Game 4 and rode a dominant Kershaw in Game 5. He struck out four of the 10 batters he faced.
