Los Angeles ace Clayton Kershaw pitched a flawless ninth inning to seal the win.

Since both teams moved to California in 1958, the Dodgers have more World Series titles (five) and more NL pennants (11) than the Giants (three and six, respectively), but Los Angeles is now in a 30-year championship drought.

Game 7 against the Dodgers was the first at home for the franchise, coming 36 years to the day after losing the seventh game to the Cardinals in the Series.

"We'll celebrate tonight but we've still got more to go". He entered hitting.235/.278/.353 in the first six NLCS games. Max Muncy and Justin Turner each singled in the inning to begin the rally.

Brewers right fielder Christian Yelich opened the scoring with one out in the first inning, delighting the sellout crowd of 44,097 by smacking a solo home run to right field.

Christian Yelich almost tied it in the fifth, but left fielder Chris Taylor's sliding catch on the warning track robbed Yelich, with Lorenzo Cain on second base.

Yelich looked like he would hurt the Dodgers again in the fifth with Lorenzo Cain on second with two outs. That gave Los Angeles a 2-1 lead. He has allowed a run in 3⅓ innings this postseason. Manny Machado, the object of nonstop boos from Milwaukee fans, obliged with the same gesture as he watched from the dugout steps. Goliath match-up of big-money Dodgers versus small-market Brewers provided all sorts of drama, but in the end, the Dodgers' strong pitching, some sterling defense, and Puig's power proved too much. Cody Bellinger hit a two-run shot in the second that gave Los Angeles the lead.
