Oddsmakers at the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook set the Red Sox as minus-135 favorites in early betting, with the Dodgers made plus-115 to win the series.

Heading into Game 7 of the National League Championship Series, conventional wisdom held that the Los Angeles Dodgers needed to be the team that scored first.

The Dodgers got a strong start from rookie right-hander Walker Buehler, who managed to go 4 ²/₃ innings, which is practically a complete game compared to the Brewers. His two-out, three-run home run in the sixth inning of Game 7 in this National League Championship Series had extended the Los Angeles Dodgers' lead to four, providing enough cushion for a 5-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers and another pennant.

From there, the homeowner's association will determine how to rebuild the clubhouse to make it safe for all residents. Clemson Police Chief Jimmy Dixon says there were no life-threatening injuries.

The Dodgers began receiving a whiff of champagne in the sixth when Puig's laser shot cleared the left-field fence against Jeremy Jeffress. He celebrated wildly going around the bases as the Dodgers made it 5-1. Urias allowed a line drive to Christian Yelich that left fielder Chris Taylor caught on the warning track with a sliding effort.

The Dodgers and Red Sox franchises - among the most storied in Major League Baseball - met in the World Series once before, in 1916, when the Dodgers existed as the Brooklyn Robins.

The Dodgers had a much more hard road to the World Series than the Red Sox.

Trump and Bolton try to dismantle the INF Treaty
A national defense analyst who helped write a 1987 nuclear treaty with the former Soviet Union says President Donald Trump is right to drop out.

Backed by raucous fans waving yellow towels that read "ONE TOUGH CREW", Milwaukee rebounded from consecutive losses at Dodger Stadium with the same formula it used to win the NL Central during a breakout season. He then gave up a three-run homer to Puig and the game was all but over.

"I know how lucky I am to be a part of it two years in a row", Bellinger said. Previous year it hurt, too. By the ninth inning, star pitcher Clayton Kershaw stepped in as relief pitcher to finish off the Brewers with the final three outs. "Four more wins, let's go". He'll have his moments, but Puig can play this game and he can play it great. Walker allowed six hits but struck out seven batters in less than five innings and did not walk a single batter. Hader delivered, holding the Dodgers in three scoreless innings and limiting them to one hit, but had to give way to the rest of the bullpen, which proved fatal to Milwaukee's hopes. They didn't coast into the playoffs - in fact, just a few months into the season, some had already written off the struggling Dodgers. Counsell pinch-hit for Chacin with two on and two out in the bottom of the second, but Jonathan Schoop grounded out to end the threat.

Mexico allows caravan women, children in, but thousands still stranded
In another tweet Sunday, Trump said full efforts to stop the caravan from crossing the United Sates' southern border are underway. Those proposals have not gotten traction among congressional Democrats, who view those changes as anti-immigrant.
