For the first time in MLB history, the Dodgers will face the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2018 National League Championship Series after the Brewers swept the Colorado Rockies and the Dodgers eliminating the Braves 3-1 in NLDS play.
The Dodgers will have 3 days to get ready for the Brewers, as Game 1 is scheduled for Friday with the times yet to be determined. The Brewers earned home field advantage with a 96-67 season record while Dodgers were slow out of the gate, but still were able to finish with a 92-71 record themselves.
The Dodgers took four out of seven games from the Brewers this year and that included a 2-1 series win in Milwaukee in late July, where Manny Machado made his Dodgers debut.
The NLCS will start with two games in Milwaukee and then three games in Los Angeles with the final two games back in Milwaukee, if necessary.
