The Dodgers advanced to the World Series for the third time in four years after defeating the Atlanta Braves 4-3 in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.

After finishing with the best record in baseball over the course of a 60-game regular season abbreviated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Dodgers swept the Milwaukee Brewers and the San Diego Padres in the first two rounds of the postseason before overcoming a two-game deficit against the Braves.

The Dodgers open the World Series against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday in hopes of capturing their first title since 1988.
