ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Cody Bellinger hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the seventh inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers advanced to the World Series for the third time in four years by topping the Atlanta Braves 4-3 in Game 7 of the NL Championship Series.

Kiké Hernández led off the sixth with the first pinch-hit homer in a Game 7 that tied or put a team ahead.

The Dodgers stay in Texas for the World Series. They play the American League champion Tampa Bay Rays.

Game 1 is Tuesday night.
