The Dodgers were crowned division champions for the sixth straight season and are in the NLCS for the third straight October, but the franchise still is searching for its first World Series title since 1988. It was a great baseball game, it really was. "I think it was the first time I ever got mobbed out in the outfield". Los Angeles has scored just 16 runs in six games and is batting.220, while Milwaukee's also tallied 16 with a.219 average. He struck out nine, all on breaking pitches, and walked two.
"I'm incredibly grateful", Kershaw said. The Dodgers would have been forced to use Urias for at least one more inning and if not, it would have cost the team Hyun-Jin Ryu who has arguably been the team's best starter this season. The Dodgers struggled to score two runs over 13 innings yesterday and I'm going to take advantage of a still-hot Milwaukee team in Game 5.
Cody Bellinger, likewise, had an unbelievable Game 5 with not only an incredible diving grab in the top of the 10th, but a game-winning RBI off of Junior Guerra to secure a significant win that put the Dodgers just a game away from the finals.
"They want us to play well, and they have every right to expect that from us", Roberts said.
Game 5 in the best-of-seven series is Wednesday afternoon, with Wade Miley going for the Brewers on three days' rest against fellow lefty Clayton Kershaw. His other start came in Game 3 of the NLDS at Colorado.
With one out, Machado had a broken-bat single to left and went to second on Guerra's wild pitch.More news: Mega Millions prize of $654M is nation's 4th-largest
After Wednesday's game, the series shifts back to Milwaukee for Game 6 on Friday.
Enrique Hernandez was none too pleased on how the Dodgers played during the 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, nor with how the fan base acted throughout the defeat. Machado is only hurting his offseason money but this is a bad showing for a shortstop that was supposed to change the Dodgers. Lorenzo Cain followed with an RBI double off the wall in center field.
The Brewers struck first in the third inning when Kershaw walked Woodruff to put runners on first and second.
The Dodgers started unveiling their relievers in the sixth inning, beginning with Pedro Baez and heading on, in order, to Kenta Maeda, Caleb Ferguson, Ryan Madson, Kenley Jansen, Alex Wood, Dylan Floro and Urias.
Miley pitched 5 2/3 shutout innings in Game 2 vs. the Dodgers, allowing two hits and walking none.
A surprise bullpen game worked well, until it didn't - and it ultimately didn't prevent the Brewers from losing for the third time in four games after a 12-game winning streak that propelled them deep into the postseason.
