The Los Angeles Dodgers needed 5 games to defeat the Washington Nationals and advance to the National League Championship against the Chicago Cubs.
The Dodgers advance with a 4-3 victory and they did it with the gutsy play of ace Clayton Kershaw. Not only did he get over his playoff woes with the victory but he did it from the bullpen.
Kershaw entered the game in the 9th inning and recorded his first ever save to send the Nationals home.
Now the Dodgers will play the Chicago Cubs with a World Series berth on the line. The series starts Saturday in Chicago
