There are only two teams remaining in the National League that have a chance at winning the 117th edition of the World Series. The #3 Atlanta Braves will face the #4 Los Angeles Dodgers in a 7-game series for a chance to advance in the Fall Classic.

The Braves made quick work of the Milwaukee Brewers in the NLDS with a 3-1 series win, courtesy of a late HR by Freddie Freeman. Atlanta has been on fire recently, after winning 12 of their last 14 regular-season games on their way to winning the NL East. The club has kept that momentum entering the playoffs after outscoring the Brewers, 12 to 6, over their four contests.

After closing out their NL West rivals, 2-1, the Dodgers have advanced in the National League Championship Series. The Dodgers are looking to win their 8th pennant and repeat as back-to-back champions for the first time in their franchise-storied history. If they defeat the Braves, this will be the first time that they have advanced to the World Series as a wildcard.

Fans will be in attendance throughout the postseason; however, cord cutters can find out how to watch the NLCS without cable below.
