Dodgers next up for Brewers' lights-out 'pen

  • Milwaukee Brewers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Preview Tips and Odds

The victor of this series will also be the heavy favorites in the World Series, regardless of whether they're matched up with the Dodgers or Brewers.

For Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin, Game 3 is a return to the scene of his team's worst loss of the season.

Woodruff stunned the ace with an early home run and Milwaukee's normally shutdown bullpen held on - barely - as the Brewers beat the sloppy Los Angeles Dodgers 6-5 Friday night in Game 1 of the NL Championship Series.

But the Dodgers closed within 3-2 in the seventh on an RBI single by Cody Bellinger off Brewers reliever Corbin Burnes and a bases-loaded walk to Austin Barnes by Jeremy Jeffress. Chris Taylor reached on a leadoff single before Turner hit a long drive to left off Jeffress, admiring the ball with his bat pointed toward the sky before rounding the bases and participating in several different celebrations with his giddy teammates on his way to the dugout.

So to hear he hit a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning of a playoff game should not come as much of a surprise.

Pedro Baez, the fifth of eight Dodgers pitchers, got the win. As a team the Dodgers have hit six home runs against Wade Miley. The home run was the only hit Gonzalez allowed through two innings.

"Honestly, as long as you put some mayo on it I'm good with it", he said. "The goal is to win a baseball game, but I think that it shows the compete in our guys". That in essence means it's now a best-of-five series, and the first three games of the reset take place in Dodger Stadium, starting with Game 3 on Monday night. The smooth-hitting left-hander went on a tear in the second half, hitting.367 after the All-Star break with 25 homers to help lift the Brewers to the NL Central crown. "I knew what I wanted to throw".

Los Angeles Dodgers' bullpen steps up in NLCS against Los Angeles Dodgers

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

The Brewers added to their lead with a solo home run from Travis Shaw in the sixth inning. This has led to the emergence of NL Rookie-of-the-Year candidate Walker Buehler who started 23 games for Los Angeles and finished with a record of 8-5 and ended on a strong note winning four of his final six games striking out 45 hitters over 39 innings. "They're going to be like this for the rest of the postseason".

The Brewers enter the day with a one-game lead in the NLCS.

"It made it a lot easier knowing I was just another piece to this ballclub", Machado said. "The tying run scoring was a little disappointing".

One of the toughest left-handers in baseball, Kershaw (9-5, 2.73) hasn't been quite as good in his career in the NLCS.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts came into the postseason willing to let his starters go deeper into games.
