After nearly three decades, the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to the World Series after manhandling the Chicago Cubs last night 11-1.
The Dodgers almost swept the Cubs, but after winning game 4, it looked like the Cubs had a chance at making it a series.
But Clayton Kershaw pitched better than he had all postseason, going 6 innings and allowing just 1 run off 3 hits.
The real hero of the game last night was Enrique Hernandez, who hit a whopping 3 home runs resulting in 7 RBIs. One of his home runs was a grand slam that increased their lead to 7-0 in the 3rd inning.

His 2 run home run in the 9th tied an MLB record for most home runs hit in a postseason game and set a new Dodger record for most home runs hit and most RBIs in a postseason game.
The Dodgers now wait for the winner of the Yankees – Astros series which could end tonight with the Yankees up 3-2. Regardless of when that series ends and the outcome, the world series will start on Oct. 24th at Dodger Stadium.
