The Atlanta Braves are heading to their first World Series since 1999. The Braves dethroned the Dodgers in this year's World Series, knocking out the defending champs in six games. Atlanta will now face the AL champion Houston Astros in the 2021 World Series, which starts Tuesday.
Eddie Rosario, who had a record-tying 14 hits in a series and clubbed a go-ahead three-run homer in the clinching Game 6, was named NLCS MVP.
