Kike Hernandez will have something to remember as the Dodgers overcame the odds against the Braves.

In a dramatic game 7 of the NLCS, the Dodgers prevailed over the Braves 4-3. With Los Angeles down 3-2 in the sixth inning, Kike Hernandez hit the go ahead home run to even the score. Another big homer from Cody Bellinger in the seventh inning secured the series victory.

“This is what you dream as a little kid,” said Hernandez. “You don’t just dream of being a big leaguer. You always dream about game 7 of the World Series. This is not the World Series, but it’s game 7. You always dream about 3-2 (count), bases loaded; and this and that. It’s game 7 and you try to do whatever you can to help the team win. And I was able to do that tonight.”

The Dodgers will make their third World Series appearance in four years, and seek their first championship title since 1988. It may have been a tough challenge to get there, but despite the adversity; Hernandez assures the team has always maintained their eyes on the prize.

“From day one of spring training, the goal was to win the World Series,” said Hernandez. “We took care of business during the regular season, we took care of business against the Brewers, we took care of business against the Padres, we took care of business against the Braves. It was a little harder than we thought it was gonna be, but I’m glad we pulled it off. Being down 3-1, and coming back to win in seven games; this is something that I’ll never forget. And it’s special for sure.”
