Pool/Getty ImagesThe Milwaukee Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers Eugenio Suarez Jersey , 7-2, on Friday to even the National League Championship Series at three games apiece. Milwaukee will now host L.A. on Saturday at 8:09 p.m. ET in a winner-take-all matchup for the NL pennant. The winner kicks off the World Series on Tuesday at 8:09 p.m. in a road tilt with the Boston Red Sox.Here\'s a look at some expert predictions in advance of Game 7, with some notable quotes and additional analysis. R.J. Anderson, CBSSports.comPick: DodgersNotable Quote: \"When in doubt, take the team with more talent. To us, that\'s the Dodgers. Both teams play hard, but L.A. pulls it out.\"The Dodgers have one significant advantage over the Brewers (and the rest of Major League Baseball): Their depth is greater than any other team in the league. Of note, L.A. has 10 players who hit 14 or more home runs this year. They have pop on both sides of the plate and numerous players with positional versatility. Of note, Cody Bellinger can play first base or outfield, Chris Taylor is a middle infielder and outfielder, and Kike Hernandez can basically do everything except pitch or catch.That\'s a huge plus in National League games sans the designated hitter, especially if the matchup goes into extra innings or the matchup becomes a battle of the bullpens. If you\'re judging the two rosters from their most valuable position player to their least, the Dodgers have the edge.Dan Mullen, ESPN.comPick: Brewers 5, Dodgers 2Notable Quote: \"Saturday\'s winner-take-all matchup sets up very well for Milwaukee. Miller Park is going to be rocking. They\'ve got a veteran on the mound in Chacin against a rookie (albeit an incredibly talented one). Hader will be available whenever Counsell chooses to unleash him.\"Brewers left-handed reliever Josh Hader has struck out 143 batters in 81.1 regular-season innings while posting a 2.43 ERA. However http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-peraza-jersey , he\'s been invincible during the playoffs, throwing seven shutout frames while allowing just four hits and striking out 12 batters. That doesn\'t even count his performance in the NL Central tiebreaker game against the Chicago Cubs when he threw two shutout innings and struck out three.Hader has been a workhorse out of the bullpen, so there has been concern about his workload. However, the 24-year-old is now well-rested: He is going on three full days rest and has thrown just 1.2 innings (28 pitches) in his last seven calendar days. Manager Craig Counsell could conceivably send him out for three innings, much like he did in Game 1 of the NLCS.Furthermore, Counsell can likely call on right-hander Jeremy Jeffress (8-1, 1.29 ERA, 89 strikeouts in 76.2 regular-season innings) for multiple frames. Jeffress has only thrown two innings since October 14 and tossed only 13 pitches on Friday. That\'s a huge edge for Milwaukee here. OddsShark ComputerPick: Brewers and Under 7.5 RunsNotable Quote: N/AThe OddsShark computer views this game as a low-scoring affair, and that is a plausible possibility. The Brewers are sending out their best starter in right-hander Jhoulys Chacin, who went 15-8 with a 3.50 ERA and 156 strikeouts in 192.2 innings. The 30-year-old has been excellent in the 2018 playoffs, throwing 10.1 shutout innings and striking out nine batters in two Brewers victories.The Dodgers send out right-handed starter Walker Buehler, who hasn\'t done as well in the postseason (6.75 ERA in 12 innings in two losses). However, the 24-year-old shined during the regular season, going 8-5 with a 2.62 ERA and punching out 151 batters in 137.1 frames. If he returns to his regular-season form, this one could turn into a pitcher\'s duel akin to the Dodgers\' 2-1 Tucker Barnhart Jersey , 13-inning Game 4 victory. Gilles Gallant, OddsSharkPick: Brewers +1.5 and Over 7.5 RunsNotable Quote: \"Buehler has started games looking sharp but then has fallen apart in both of his postseason starts. The Brewers\' pitching is such an edge to have in a close-out game and coupling that with playing in front of the home crowd, it\'s shaping up for the Brewers make the World Series for the first time since 1982.\"Gilles Gallant of OddsShark takes a different approach than the computer, however, as he thinks the game will go over the 7.5-run over/under total. If Buehler struggles again, then that could happen. More notably, the Brewers have a strong home-field advantage in this spot. Miller Park was raucous on Friday as Brewer fans vociferously booed shortstop Manny Machado because he kicked Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar in the leg in Game 4. Whether that had an effect on Machado is up for debate, although he did go 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Game 6.Milwaukee has gone 4-1 at Miller Park during the postseason and finished with a National League-best 51-30 home record during the regular season. Brewers fans are hungry for their team\'s first World Series appearance (and just second overall) since 1982. Expect them to bring the heat again. NEW YORK (AP) — Fans have been waiting for another one of these rumbles: baseball’s most-bitter rivals set to tangle again, this time as 100-win heavyweights in the playoffs.Munson vs. Fisk, Pedro vs. Popeye , A-Rod vs. Varitek and earlier this year Brock Holt vs. Tyler Austin .The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees back at each other in the postseason for the first time in 14 years.“We’re a team that can play with anybody, and we’re not afraid to go in there,” Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks said after a 7-2 wild-card win over Oakland sent New York to a best-of-five AL Division Series that starts Friday in Fenway Park.Yankees fans were chanting “We want Boston!” during the late innings. The Red Sox tweeted “We want New York” after the final out in the Bronx.“I think they’re ready and relish the opportunity to go up against the game’s best this year,” Yankees rookie manager Aaron Boone said of his players.That is the same Aaron Boone whose 11th-inning homer in Game 7 of the 2003 AL Championship Series beat the Red Sox. A year later Boston overcame the Yankees and became the first major league team to bounce back from a 3-0 postseason deficit. The Red Sox went on to win their first World Series since 1918, but Boone’s drive off Tim Wakefield has not been forgotten or forgiven.Boston was 10-9 against the Yankees this year and set a club record with 108 wins under new manager Alex Cora http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-harvey-jersey , boosted by MVP candidate Mookie Betts, slugger J.D. Martinez and ace Chris Sale. New York finished eight games back and became the first team since the 2001 Athletics to reach triple digits in wins and fail to finish first — New York also set the major league mark for home runs, powered by the likes of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton.These teams also have a history of hitting each other.Back on April 11, Austin charged the mound at Fenway after Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly threw at him twice, hitting Austin in the side with the second pitch. Boston players were livid Austin slid spikes-first into shortstop Brock Holt earlier in the game. A bench-clearing brawl led to suspensions and fines, but Auston won’t be around for a rematch — he was dealt to Minnesota in July.“It’s Yankees-Red Sox. That’s what everybody wants. That’s what they got,” Red Sox star pitcher David Price said then.Just another in a long history of bad blood between rivals a little more than 200 miles apart.Boston player-manager Joe Cronin and New York outfielder Jake Powell fought on the field and beneath the Yankee Stadium stands in 1938, and Jimmy Piersall of the Red Sox and Billy Martin of the Yankees brawled beneath Fenway Park’s stands in 1952.A fight broke out in 1967 at Yankee Stadium after New York’s Thad Tillotson hit Joe Foy with a pitch and Boston’s Jim Lonborg hit Tillotson — who after the scrap hit Dick Howser with a pitch.In 1973, Thurman Munson crashed into catcher Carlton Fisk at Fenway after Gene Michael missed a bunt, and the All-Stars fought. Then at Yankee Stadium in 1976, New York’s Lou Piniella charged into Fisk at the plate , and Boston pitcher Bill Lee was body-slammed during the fighting and wound up with a broken collarbone.A notorious brawl took place during Game 3 of the 2003 AL Championship series, when Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez threw 72-year-old Don Zimmer to the ground.Zimmer, a former Boston manager and then a Yankees coach, ran across the infield and lunged at Martinez during the fighting.Then the following July Scott Schebler Jersey , Boston’s Bronson Arroyo hit New York’s Alex Rodriguez with a pitch, A-Rod stared at the pitch as he walked toward first, catcher Jason Varitek got between them and pushed the AL MVP, leading to dugouts and bullpens emptying.That October the rivals met again in the 2004 ALCS. The Yankees took a 3-0 lead and were one inning from reaching the World Series when Mariano Rivera walked Kevin Millar and pinch-runner Dave Roberts — now the Los Angeles Dodgers manager — stole second. Bill Mueller hit a tying single and the Red Sox won 6-4 in 12 innings when David Ortiz hit a game-ending, two-run homer at 1:22 a.m.Boston won 5-4 the next day on Ortiz’s RBI single in the 14th inning, won Game 6 in New York 4-2 behind Curt Schilling and his bloody sock, then blew out the Yankees 10-3 in the finale.“All empires fall sooner or later,” Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said.Boston swept St. Louis in the World Series, swept Colorado four years later and beat the Cardinals in a six-game series in 2013. Over that same span, the Yankees have won just one title, in 2009.Fast forward to this week, with the teams ready to meet again.“It’s going to be intense,” New York pitcher CC Sabathia said.
