Dodgers don't want to waste any time dispatching Brewers

Dodgers don't want to waste any time dispatching Brewers

This allowed Counsell to get a lefty-lefty matchup to begin the game and still start Miley in Game 6 on Friday. That's made him one of the best pitchers of this generation, a three-time Cy Young Award victor, a seven-time all-star, the NL MVP in 2014 and the heartbeat of this franchise.

The Dodgers jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a first-inning RBI single from Brian Dozier, who was making his first start of the postseason. In his time with the Dodgers, Rich Hill has a 2.93 ERA in 40 postseason innings, effectively working as the postseason ace the Dodgers have desperately been looking for over the last few years.

It was a rough one in Los Angeles on Monday night.

Gonzalez has a high ankle sprain and might need to be replaced on the roster, Counsell said.

In June 2014, Machado ran into Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson, who was attempting to tag him. causing both benches to clear.

The Brewers' Curtis Granderson had a pinch-hit RBI double in the ninth inning off Ryan Madson.

Roughed up in the NLCS opener, Kershaw mixed his fastball and slider on a hot day to shut down the Brewers.

Taylor connected on a 97 miles per hour four-seam fastball for an infield single and was able to take second on a throwing error by Milwaukee shortstop Orlando Arcia. Pinch-hitter Matt Kemp struck out to end the threat.

Turkish investigators were expected to carry out a search of the Saudi Consul General's residence in Istanbul later on Tuesday. The semiofficial Anadolu news agency said Saudi's Istanbul Consul General, Mohammed Otaibi, had left the country.

Kenley Jansen got the final out to earn the save.

Aguilar left his foot on the base for a moment after Machado was already out, and the star shortstop appeared to show his displeasure by bringing his left foot forward and kicking Aguilar on the back of the leg. "It's no big surprise to us - he's a gamer, he's a grinder, and it was huge".

"Everything that happens on the field stays on the field", he said.

The Dodgers said tickets were still available for Game 5, which begins at 2:05 p.m. PDT. "And a true sign of a major leaguer that lasts and excels is that you have to be able to adapt because eventually physical skills change, the league adjusts to you, and you've got to be able to make adjustments back and kind of learn on the fly". Miley was the "trojan horse" starter in Game 5, but he faced only one batter.

It looked like he might have been finished in five, as the Dodgers had a runner on third with one out, catcher Austin Barnes at the plate and Yasiel Puig in the on-deck circle to pinch-hit for Kershaw.

The bullpen came on to close out the rest of the game. He didn't factor in the decision either time. Kershaw had the best postseason outing of his career in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Braves, allowing two hits over eight shutout innings.

Kershaw has 10 days after the World Series to decide if he'll opt out of the remaining 2 years of his $215 MILLION deal with the Dodgers. and insists he hasn't made up his mind yet.
