Los Angeles Dodgers clinch first World Series berth since 1988

Manager Dave Roberts will have some roster decisions to make as he says Seager is expected back for Tuesday's World Series opener. He's watched a number of playoff games live in from a private box at Dodger Stadium. Given the stakes, it's hard to imagine the shortstop won't be out there if at all possible when the Series starts next week.

The benefits of the Dodgers' major league-best regular season have echoed deep into October, where they're the first team to get home-field advantage in the World Series due to their superior record since baseball dropped the All-Star Game result as the determining factor. "So obviously when you have a guy like Charlie Culberson that can fill in like that, made some spectacular defensive plays, some big hits, it was great to see from Charlie, but obviously we're hoping to get Corey back for the World Series".

We heard what he did before the game, we saw the great hits during the game, now we get to see his post celebration.

Fans are desperately trying to lure the legendary Dodgers broadcaster back to the booth for the team's World Series match-up against the either the New York Yankees or Houston Astros. Cody Bellinger hit the double that drove in Taylor and gave the Dodgers the 1-0 lead in the first. Scully retired a year ago after 67 incredible seasons with the Dodgers, becoming one of the best known and loved broadcasters in sports.

Turner singled in Taylor, who doubled leading off the third. Quintana allowed singles to Bellinger and Puig before being pulled. Hernandez was the fourth Dodger to hit a grand slam in a postseason game, joining Dusty Baker and Ron Cey (both 1977) and James Loney (2008), according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Kershaw exited after six innings, allowing 1 run on 3 hits and a walk with 5 strikeouts.

It wasn't the only victory of the night, either: As the Dodgers celebrated with champagne and handshakes, Hernandez's Hurricane Maria Relief fund-raiser on YouCaring topped its $100,000 goal.

The towering Texan southpaw has a 144-64 career record, with an earned run average (ERA) - the average number of earned runs conceded per nine-inning game - of just 2.36, placing him 24th in the all-time rankings.

Gibson's Hollywood home run sparked the Dodgers to their 1988 World Series championship over the Athletics, and it is an often-repeated highlight at Dodger Stadium. Kershaw was still tossing a no-hitter through 4 1/3 innings, until he served up Kris Bryant's first (and only) home run of the postseason.

Kenley Jansen entered in the ninth to close the series out.

"Who knows how many times I'm going to get to go to the World Series", Kershaw said.
