The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to the World Series for the first time since 1988! It was a historic performance that helped lift the Dodgers to a 11-1 win over the Chicago Cubs. Despite having champagne burning in his eyes, Hernandez remained laser focused on the goal: winning the World Series.
Believe it or not, the offense still had a little bit more left in them. However, they hit a bad skid late in the month that carried into the middle of September.
Tue., Oct. 24: World Series Game 1, American League champion at Dodgers, 8 p.m. Fox Wed. Coming off a breakout season, the 27-year-old Taylor hit.316 with two homers and scored five times against the Cubs. These Dodgers would like nothing better than to face the Yankees and beat them, a coast-to-coast triumph for the team that produced the best record in baseball this year. Versatile Chris Taylor was rescued from the Seattle Mariners' Triple-A team in the summer of 2016 and batted.288 with 21 homers and 17 steals this season and then shared NLCS MVP honors with Turner.
Dodgers player Enrique "Kiké" Hernandez has been a huge voice of support for his homeland in the weeks since Hurricane Maria tore through the island, and though his family was able to evacuate in the days following the storm, they have since returned.
Hernandez and the Dodgers were not done hitting. Not only can he hit home runs, that man can twerk!
Los Angeles got on the board right away, which would ultimately set the tone for the night. Roberts said. "Every single night it's somebody else".
Hernandez homered three times and drove in a record seven runs, Kershaw breezed through six crisp innings and Los Angeles ended the Chicago Cubs' title defense with an 11-1 rout in Game 5 of the NL Championship Series.
The Dodgers, who never trailed, opening the scoring in the first when Bellinger doubled in Taylor, who walked. He has 2,120 strikeouts in 1,935 innings.
If the Yankees survive the seventh game, they will depend on their power bats against the Dodgers. Enrique Hernandez began his magical night with a solo home run on the first pitch to leadoff the second, and the Dodgers lead 2-0. Gary Sanchez, Didi Gregorius and Greg Bird have each hit three home runs in the playoffs for the Yankees.
This is the buzzsaw the Yankees or Astros will run into come Tuesday. He is also the first player ever to hit three home runs in a postseason game at Wrigley Field!
"We've heard 1988 for so long in L.A., it feels good to say that we're getting to go to the World Series in 2017", said Kershaw, who has been with the Dodgers since 2008.
