In case you missed it, the Los Angeles Dodgers came back from a 3-1 series deficit to win Game 7 on Sunday night and advance to the World Series for the third time in four years.

Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager played an integral role in the series, and was awarded the NLCS MVP following the game.

Throughout the seven game series, the 26-year old posted a .310 batting average, 1.230 OPS, five homers and 11 RBI.

He chose the humble route, and gave credit to the entire team when asked about winning the award.

“Obviously it wasn’t just me. That was a complete team effort right there,” said Seager.

“Absolutely grinded throughout that series. That was a test every single night. We’re up for the next one too.”

The Dodgers will face the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series. They will look to win it all for the first time since 1988.
