Each October, the MLB postseason belongs to someone or something.

The team with the best regular-season record completed its impressive campaign through the National League, as the Dodgers defeated the Cubs, 11-1, in Game 5 of the NLCS presented by Camping World to clinch the organization's first pennant in 29 years.
