MILWAUKEE – A bundle, a catch and two bombs. Pure baseball magic. And some spices.
Dodgers took care of The Bull Pencil Brewers on Saturday night and hit them on all baseball courts in their own ballpark and won Game 7 in NLCS 5-1 at Miller Park and they now have a date with the freaking Red Sox, which begins Tuesday at Fenway Park in the World Series.
This was a redemption game for Dodgers.
Manny Machado set the tone with an all-scoring bundle single in the second inning and set the stage for Cody Bellingser’s 425-foot, two-run home run to the right. Machado was wonderfully bent here the last two games and it raised his game.
He actually held.
“There is no better feeling,” Machado said he went to his first world series. “It’s even better to get the last laugh.”
Regarding that bundle, Machado said he did, because Jhoulys Chacin was trying to throw him quickly.
Machado made a flash pointer for criticism with his comments if not wanting to be “Johnny Hustle” then kicks Jesus Aguilar in the ankle at the first base in Game 4.
He gave a not so subtle message back to Brewers fans after his bundle single when he grabbed his scrap first.
“Everything I heard was Manny sucking,” Machado said of the second inning gesture. “I just enjoyed what they said, take it all in. They will always live best. I’m playing baseball. I love it. There’s no better feeling than celebrating.”
In the fifth, the brewers threaten to tie the match with two outs and Lorenzo Cain on the second base, Christian Yelich leaned a shot into the left center. Chris Taylor, who started the game in the second base, ran the ball, made a jumper for a simply incredible catch, stretched his Rawlings glove as far as it could go to save the recovery when Bellinger jumped over the sprawled Taylor.
“It was the game in the game,” said Bellinger, called NLCS MVP.
It gave Dodgers even more lives and at the top of the sixth after the Brewers had already used Josh Hader for three innings, Yasiel Puig lined a ball at home over the left center field fence to score three more runs by Jeremy Jeffress.
Miller Park, the world’s largest indoor curtain, grew silently because Puig made a DX-like scrapbook between first and second on its way around the bases.
Let the children play, they say.
The fans came to give Machado, but at last Machado and his dodgers had the last laugh.
“I was a fan of Triple-X, that’s Puig’s case,” Machado said in champagne-crazy Dodger clubhouse. The highlight was when left Rich Hill came in Machado’s face, sprinkled him with champagne and booed him just like the brothers fans.
Manny loved it.
He also loved Puig homeschooling as well.
“It was amazing,” Machado said. “Yasiel is amazing. Everyone here is dense.” To allow me to enter this group, it was a blessing. “
The brewer’s bag with bullpen tricks had ended and Dodgers returns to the world series for the second straight year. Puig promised at the end of the regular season Dodgers would win this time after Astros beat them in seven games last year.
They have not won a world series since Kirk Gibson 1
988, but they have another chance.
The Dodgers spoke of their depths throughout the season. That depth helped them survive the talented Brewers, who tried to reinvent postseason baseball by leaning on relievers and making beginners complementary pieces.
Dodgers got a strong start from rookie righthander Walker Buehler, who managed to go 4 ² / 3 innings, which is virtually a complete game compared to the brewers.
The game has changed in many ways, but it still exists for major pitching appearances, big games and big hits like Belling’s and Puig’s home runs. [19659002AceClaytonKershawkompauvionionofDodgersleveningentvekanomattgörasin11:eresatillworldseriesedbetweenBrooklyn
