Brewers hold off the Dodgers to force Game 7 of the NLCS


"I don't think I'd single those two guys out, I think there's a bunch of guys we need to get going, and we will". "We also know we're good too". But neither team will have any qualms about turning to its reinforcements early. And then, just like that, the Brewers were up, and up some more, and riding every bit of a four-run first inning to a 7-2 win that extended their playoff run into a decisive Game 7 here on Saturday night.

The Brewers then announced shortly after the decision that Miley would be starting Game 6.

Hader probably would have pitched if the Dodgers had threatened in the top of the eighth, but instead they went down in order against Corbin Burnes. Next came an RBI double by Mike Moustakas, and an RBI single by Erik Kratz, and, when the first inning was tallied up, the Brewers had erased Freese's home run with four straight two-out hits and four season-saving runs off Dodgers starter Hyun-jin Ryu.

In what have been two of their most important games to date, the Los Angeles Dodgers have twice made an intriguing, if not curious change atop their lineup. From that standpoint, the Brewers were successful: Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts used six right-handed hitters as position players, and the Dodgers didn't score until the fifth inning.

In a tense game, the benches cleared in the 10th inning when Machado grounded out and his feet tangled with Jesus Aguilar at first base.

"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. Woodruff homered off Kershaw in Game 1 in Milwaukee, becoming the third relief pitcher to homer in a postseason game. The Dodgers will not see Hill until the World Series or as an emergency reliever in a game seven situation. If they think its something that can help us achieve that, I'm in. More teams around the league picked up on the maneuver after the Tampa Bay Rays started using bullpen days to get through some games this season.

Red Sox Concerns Fade as They Roll Into the World Series
Brown, who grew up in Red Sox Nation, said she moved to Houston in 1966 and turned her allegiance to the Astros. In the first inning of the game Wednesday night, Jose Altuve hit a pop-up ball that looked like a home run.

In a statement, the Taliban referred to Gen Raziq as a "brutal police chief". "They are on high alert", Rahimi said. Seen as a close US ally and a fervent enemy of the Taliban, Raziq was also deeply controversial.

Buehler will become the fourth rookie in the last 30 years to start a Game 7, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Knebel provided 1 1/3 scoreless innings.

The veteran right-hander goes for Milwaukee in Game 7. Counsell has already talked about how much better Hader fares when he's rested.

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

The Dodgers this season led the NL with a.796 OPS against right-handed pitchers.

They put together one of the poorest postseason performances ever in Game 1 - committing four errors and two passed balls - but rode Justin Turner's heroic home run in Game 2. By the time he got his third out, the Brewers were up 4-1. He had two questionable slides, one that was ruled in violation of MLB's rules. "We turned the page, and now we have to come and play the game (Wednesday)". "We just have to keep fighting".

"Honestly, I was surprised that they were pitching to me", Bellinger said.
