A closer look at the Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston’s World Series opponent

It sets up a clash of storied franchises in the World Series, with the Dodgers and Red Sox scheduled for Game 1 on Tuesday at Fenway Park. The Cubs' curse-breaking win in 2016 saw an average price of more than $6,600 for games in Chicago, and last year, games in both Houston and Los Angeles topped expectations for this year.

Milwaukee´s Christian Yelich smacked a first-inning line drive solo homer to centerfield off right-handed Dodgers rookie starting pitcher Walker Buehler to open the scoring. In the top of the sixth inning, fellow Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig walloped a three-run home run to center field giving the Dodgers a four-run cushion.

The Dodgers are hosting World Series games 3, 4 and 5 (if necessary.) The team encourages fans to go to Dodgers.com for "the best selection of tickets from the team and secondary market partners". The latest incident won't quiet any of that talk going into the World Series against a team Machado has a history against - the Red Sox.

Los Angeles was looking for its second straight NL pennant and some time to prepare for the mighty Boston Red Sox in the World Series. This placed LA in a division series matchup against the NL East champion Atlanta Braves, whom the Dodgers defeated in four games.

Kenley Jansen tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings before yielding to Kershaw in the ninth. Add it all up and I see the Brew Crew celebrating with a champagne party Saturday night before heading to Boston for the team's first World Series in 36 years.

The prediction: In the moments after the Brewers lost Game 5 in L.A., manager Craig Counsell said, "We're going back home, to me, in a position of strength". The All-Star left-hander fanned 16 of the 35 batters he faced in 10 shutout innings over seven playoff appearances.

Brewers right-hander Jhoulys Chacin worked out of further trouble to end the inning, which proved to be his final action of the game.

That's Puig's first home run of the postseason. And when his team needed him to emerge on the big stage, he swatted them right into the World Series. I don't think we beat ourselves.

When Jeremy Jeffress came on with one on and none out in the sixth, the Dodgers' offense awoke again. For games 1 and 2, the cheapest tickets are between $500 and $600, but average about $1,625 each. They didn't coast into the playoffs - in fact, just a few months into the season, some had already written off the struggling Dodgers.
