How many innings can Hader go in Game 7?
Since both teams moved to California in 1958, the Dodgers have more World Series titles (five) and more NL pennants (11) than the Giants (three and six, respectively), but Los Angeles is now in a 30-year championship drought. Instead, the Dodgers received the best relief work - 4 ¹/₃ scoreless innings from the bullpen - to win their first Game 7 since the 1988 NLCS against the Mets.

Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig hit home runs to back a strong effort from rookie right-hander Walker Buehler and four relievers, sending the Dodgers to the Fall Classic in consecutive years for the first time since 1977-78. After appearing in 10 playoff games without a single home run, the outfielder blasted a 1-1 knuckle curve to center field to pad the Dodgers' lead.
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.
Jhoulys Chacin was removed after pitching only two innings for the Brewers in which he allowed two earned runs on three hits and one walk. He got Turner to fly out, then struck out Manny Machado. After allowing a home run to David Freese to open the game, Wade Miley limited the Dodgers to just one run after that point. It was a needed contribution from Yelich, who entered batting only.188 this postseason.
