They went on to tie the game in the sixth, courtesy of Kiké Hernandez's solo shot, and later took the lead in the seventh following Cody Bellinger's blast into the right-field seats.

As for L.A., their Game 7 win means they are heading back to the Fall Classic for the third time in the last four seasons.

They will meet the Tampa Bay Rays who reached the World Series for the second time by beating the Houston Astros. Winning a pennant is not new for this group.

This should be another high-scoring game today, just like it was in Game 2 on Tuesday night.

The Dodgers again will try to win their first World Series title since 1998.

League Championship- Atlanta Braves v Los Angeles Dodgers- Game Seven

The Dodgers now find themselves in a 2-0 series hole following their 8-7 loss to the Braves in Game 2 on Tuesday night.

"There's a lot of things that could have gone the other way, but the Dodgers made plays", said Freeman, who saw Mookie Betts rob him of a home run in the fifth. Corey Seager was named NLCS MVP after bashing five homers against Atlanta.

The Dodgers mixed and matched their pitching staff in Game 7, using four pitchers, including two rookies, before Julio Urias (4-0) finished off the victory with three flawless innings.

The best-of-seven World Series begins on Tuesday with all games played at a neutral venue - Globe Life Field, home of the Texas Rangers, the same venue as the NLCS - because of the coronavirus pandemic.

After becoming the first Major League Baseball pitcher to make his starting debut in a postseason game, Minter struck out seven Los Angeles Dodgers over three innings, the most ever in a playoff outing of three or fewer innings, starter or reliever.
