What a time for Los Angeles Dodgers’ fans! After dominating their way through the National League, the Dodgers are heading to the World Series for the first time since 1988!

 

The Boys in Blue clinched their World Series ticket on the road Thursday night as they defeated the defending champions, the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Powered by Enrique Hernandez’s three home runs and seven RBIs, the Dodgers easily defeated the Cubs 11-1.

 

As they now head to the World Series, the Dodgers are back to playing with the fire they had at the beginning of the season.

 

They swept the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-0 in the NLDS, and downed the Cubs 4-1 in the NLCS.

 

Right now, the Dodgers are playing on a level of their own. They still have one more team to defeat if they want to claim themselves the best team in baseball.

 

To find out who their World Series opponent will be, Los Angeles has to wait for the New York Yankees and Houston Astros to finish up their series in the ALCS.

 

The Dodgers had the best record in baseball in the regular season so they will have home-field advantage in the World Series no matter who they play.

 

Even if they didn’t have home-field advantage, playing on the road hasn’t been an issue for the Dodgers this year. They had a 47-34 record away from home in the regular season, and are 3-1 on the road so far in the postseason.

 

The Dodgers are also expecting to get all-star short stop Corey Seager back in time for the World Series. He missed the entire NLCS with a back injury.

 

Seager’s return will add even more firepower to the already extremely potent Dodgers line-up.

 

Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts announced ace Clayton Kershaw will start game one of the World Series for Los Angeles.

 

The Dodgers now have to play the waiting game as the Yankees and Astros battle for their spot in the World Series.

 

Whether they face the Yankees or Astros, the Dodgers are expected to be the favorites to win it all with the way they’ve been playing.

 

Game one of the World Series will be played at Dodgers Stadium on Tuesday, Oct. 24. The start time is still to be determined.
