MLB Playoffs Blog: Rays return to World Series; Dodgers, Braves need Game 7

Corey Seager homered again, Walker Buehler pitched six scoreless innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers pushed the NL Championship Series to Game 7 with a 3-1 win over Atlanta on Saturday.

For the first time since 2008, the Tampa Bay Rays are headed back to the World Series.

The top-seeded Rays skirted the Houston Astros’ best efforts to play the role of the triumphant underdog (and emerge from a 3-0 series deficit) by winning 4-2 in the ALCS Game 7 on Saturday.

The Atlanta Braves, meanwhile, could’ve clinched their own pennant — but the Los Angeles Dodgers outmatched them in a 3-1 victory to force a Game 7 in the NLCS tomorrow night.
