LOS ANGELES — He survived the pressure, the heat and, ultimately, the Astros.

Most notable of all, Clayton Kershaw survived the seventh inning, his personal Achilles’ heel that had swelled into more of an Achilles’ entire foot, from his ankle to the tips of his toes.

And because of that – plus swings from two of the team’s budding autumn legends – the Dodgers returned to the World Series for the first time since winning the thing in 1988 and looked like they never left.
