Brewers fans, crew prepare for final game of NLCS against Dodgers

Being mercilessly booed by Milwaukee Brewers fans in Game 7 of the National League Division Series on Saturday night, Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado appeared to direct a lewd gesture at the Miller Park crowd. Los Angeles is up 3-2 in the NLCS and can secure a World Series appearance against the Red Sox with a win Friday night in Milwaukee.

Dodgers No. 6 hitter Yasiel Puig hit a crucial three-run home run in the top of the sixth inning off Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress to make the score 5-1.

The win was particularly sweet for Big Blue, as they lost a similar opportunity a year ago by dropping a Game 7 showdown to the Houston Astros in the World Series.

The 2018 World Series is the fourth trip to the games in the last 15 years for the Red Sox, who won championships in 2004, 2007 and 2013.

Kenley Jansen tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings before yielding to Kershaw in the ninth. A late surge led by Yelich lifted Milwaukee from 5 1/2 games out of the NL Central lead on August 28 to one win short of the franchise's second World Series appearance.

Milwaukee took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning when star hitter Christian Yelich tagged a 1-0 pitch from Los Angeles starter Walker Buehler for a home run. He robbed Yelich of an extra-base hit with a runner on second and two outs. I've had a lot of friends on all those teams over the years and it's great to see everyone playing well. Buehler pitched 4 2/3 innings, giving up six hits and allowing just the one run.

Running at full speed to his left, Taylor extended his glove high in the air just as the ball settled into the mitt to end the inning.
