Dodgers stage late comeback to even up NLCS with Brewers

Adjust Comment Print

The Milwaukee Brewers recently swept the Colorado Rockies, three games to none, to move on to the National League Championship Series.

This is familiar ground for both the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers as they will both look to win their second straight league pennant, while the Milwaukee Brewers and Boston Red Sox are each looking to take home one of their own.

Cody Bellinger got Los Angeles on the board with an RBI single in the seventh, chasing Corbin Burnes and stopping an 0-for-15 slide in the playoffs that landed him on the bench at the start of the game. Milwaukee is 7-2 in its last nine playoff home games. The Dodgers head into the matchup as winners in seven of their last 10 contests.

In the NL Division Series, while his team quickly dispatched the young Atlanta Braves, Turner went 5-for-14 with four walks and zero strikeouts. He faced them three times, three hits and two runs in three and one-third innings pitched. "He's got a number of different tricks in his bag, so to speak, that he goes to get outs, and I enjoy that. Game 5 comes around, then he'll be the guy on the mound and he'll be the guy who will get us a win". In Game 1, Milwaukee relievers combined to allow four runs in seven innings and almost blew what swelled to a 6-1 lead.

"We made a choice basically to add another pitcher, because it could be a seven-game series", manager Craig Counsell said.

The Dodgers did some damage against the Brewers' bullpen.

Roberts said Urias can be available to pitch more than one inning and that he is comfortable using him in back-to-back games, even though Urias hasn't done that all season. "I knew what I wanted to throw". "They're going to be like this for the rest of the postseason".

During the press conference on Friday, Bolt said the Mariners had not yet indicated whether he had secured a spot on the team. The A-League season begins next weekend, as Central Coast goes up against Brisbane Roar on Sunday, October 19.

Save for Yasiel Puig snapping his bat over his leg after striking out swinging with the bases loaded in the seventh, Los Angeles stayed steady as Milwaukee tried to hold on.

"I knew he could swing the bat a little bit, for sure", Kershaw said.

The Brewers enter the day with a one-game lead in the NLCS. He has four postseason go-ahead home runs since he joined the club in 2014, tied with Daniel Murphy for the most in that span.

Yuri Gurriel broke the game open with a three-run homer just after Reddick hit his solo blast earlier in the ninth.

Grandal, who was also charged with two passed balls, was called for catcher's inteference on what would have been a lineout by Jesus Aguilar and then a missed catch on Hernan Perez's sacrfice fly as Milwaukee took a 2-1 lead.

The other pitching decision that shocked some was the decision to toss Hyun-Jin Ryu in Game 2 at Miller Park and to keep Walker Buehler for Game 3 at Dodger Stadium.
