With a Grand Slam Home Run by The Dodgers’ Enrique Hernandez, in the third inning of Game 5 of the National League Championship Series, The LA Dodgers destroyed The Chicago Cubs in Game 5 of The National League Playoffs to advance to the World Series for first time since 1988 ! In the below photo Enrique Hernandez, center, celebrates with Dodgers teammates after hitting a grand slam in the third inning of Game 5 of the National League Championship Series :
There will be a very good chance that it will be a “Coast to Coast World Series”, as you can see from the below chart, The New York Yankees can win The American League Playoffs, with a win tonight in game 6, over The Houston Astros ! So it would be New York VS. Los Angeles for The World Series Title. * Even if New York doesn’t win, they could still go to the World Series with a win in game 7- tomorrow night at 8PM in Houston. * The tickets now are already astronomical – if Houston wins, with prices ranging from $1200 for the nose bleed seats – to over $8000 for seats behind the dugouts ; and that’s just for game one. If the series were to go to the iconic “Game 7” dugout seats would go for over $14,000 ! However , If the New York Yankees were to make it to The World Series – the ticket prices will go through the roof !

Should the Yankees win the Playoffs, they would be just the fifth team to win four consecutive games in a best-of-seven postseason series after falling into a 2-0 hole. The franchise already has accomplished the feat twice, with the 1978 and ’96 Yanks joining the ’81 Dodgers and ’85 Cardinals on a very short list.
Here is the full schedule for The World Series, with The American League Winner to be decided tonight, or tomorrow :
