LA Dodgers Reach World Series For The First Time In 29 Years

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.
