Brewers dominate Dodgers to push NLCS to Game 7

Brewers dominate Dodgers to push NLCS to Game 7

When a bullpen meltdown prompted a 3-9 stretch around the middle of August, they came back to win 11 of 15. So why take him out?

All it took was one inning, one single inning, for the silence inside Miller Park to be replaced by booming chants and waving towels and what sounded like a crashing wave of belief, arriving just in time, if not a little early.

The Dodgers need another answer.

The Los Angeles Dodgers can punch their ticket to the World Series with another win tonight in Game 6 at the Milwaukee Brewers. "We turned the page, and now we have to come and play the game (Wednesday)". "Here we are again, with another shot at it. Listen, man, they're a good team. We try to go out there and do the best we can". Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler faces journeyman Jhoulys Chacin, with well-rested relief ace Josh Hader looming in the bullpen for Milwaukee after a surprise day off. Kershaw earned the win with a fantastic start, allowing one earned run on three hits with nine strikeouts and a walk over seven innings. Jansen, who has had the last two days off, can provide more than that.

The Brewers have their backs against the wall on Friday night so you can bet that Craig Counsell will have some tricks up his sleeve. And it paid off: Knebel threw a scoreless sixth to reward his skipper's decision; the shaky Jeremy Jeffress tossed a crisp and flawless seventh; and righty Corbin Burnes worked the final two frames to finish it.

"We forced a Game 7", he said.

Max Muncy hit a go-ahead single in the sixth inning for the defending NL champs.

Miley is scheduled to start Game 6 in Milwaukee on Friday.

That sent Cain spinning off second and Ryan Braun sprinting from first, and Brewers third base coach Ed Sedar jogging far down the line to wave them home and punctuate each run with a leaping fist pump.

"There's the thought of trying to go to your 'pen in the first inning or the second inning, but there's a significant cost potentially for a potential Game 7", Roberts said.

The team that hit a franchise and NL-leading 235 home runs in the regular season did it playing small ball instead, driving in all but one of its runs on singles.

Julio Urias was chosen to NLCS roster over Scott Alexander because "we liked his pitch mix more for this series" Dave Roberts shared with the media.

Bellinger started Games 1 and 3 and entered as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning of Game 4. He will start Game 6.

"I think I'll be fine".

"It was huge to get there to third base, less than two outs, give us a shot to do some things", Barnes said of Taylor.

Kratz, though, would make contact the following pitch and thus indisputably prove that he's better than all of us at baseball.

This series has in many ways encapsulated the Dodgers' season.

Aguilar hit a two-run double in the Brewers' four-run first inning against Hyun-Jin Ryu and added a late RBI single that helped the Brewers even the matchup at three games each. They lulled their way to a deflating loss in Game 3, but outlasted the Brewers in a thrilling, 13-inning Game 4 and rode Kershaw's dominance to a crucial Game 5 victory.
