The Chicago Cubs had their year — and 2017 wasn’t it. This time, it was the L.A. Dodgers who broke a drought by winning the National League pennant and heading to the World Series for the first time in 29 years.

The Dodgers took down the Cubs 11-1 and won the series 4-1 in what can only be called a domination. And they did at Wrigley Field, to really rub salt into the wound.

Enrique Hernandez’s three home runs led the Dodgers to their happy ending and gave them the opportunity to face either the Houston Astros or the New York Yankees in the World Series. The Dodgers were last there in 1988 when they beat out the Oakland Athletics.

While Chicago mourned, there was plenty of celebrating in Hollywood. L.A. Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson watched the Dodgers seal the deal as his own team took to the court for their opening 2017 NBA season game.

Then Magic remembered who he was meant to be cheering for …

Rob Lowe gave his seal of approval of the Dodgers’ lineup in true “West Wing” style.
