Brewers fall in game two in NLCS against Los Angeles Dodgers

Less than 24 hours later, Turner ignited his team, as he so often has, by launching the two-run home run that gave the Dodgers the 4-3 lead they rode to victory on Saturday, evening this best-of-seven series against the Milwaukee Brewers at one game apiece.

Clayton Kershaw could be the ace that finally puts a stop to the streak.

Justin Turner kept his bat pointed high above his head because he earned the right to, because he had just crushed a baseball that flew into the second deck and woke up a Los Angeles Dodgers dugout that, moments before, was brimming with blank stares.

"We know we're not going to get a ton of opportunities" against Kershaw and Dodgers starting pitching, outfielder Ryan Braun said.

Once the Brewers take a lead, they're hard to beat.

But if Buehler doesn't last long, Roberts already knows what he's got in his bullpen.

"You won't see Josh (Hader) tomorrow, for sure", Counsell said. That's all it is.

The Dodgers are no stranger to this stage as this their third consecutive trip to the NLCS where they hope to claim their second consecutive pennant. The strategy at the plate doesn't change, either, just because Milwaukee's relievers are so good.

"We'll have some different lineups in this series", Counsell said. Earlier in the game, Brandon Woodruff became the first Brewers reliever to hit a postseason home run when he clubbed a fastball over the right-center-field wall. Not good for the Brew Crew. Having Urias, who can throw a full inning up to two or three if he is on, makes the bullpen much deeper.

Pressure in the NLCS?

Knebel only makes up part of the four-headed monster that makes up the Brewers bullpen, Josh Hader (NL Pitcher of the Month April, set Major League Baseball record for strikeouts by a left-handed relief pitcher with 143), Jeremy Jeffress (1.29 ERA, 2nd in Major League Baseball among relievers), and Joakim Soria will all have to play a big role at times during this series if Milwaukee wants to advance.

"You want to stay out there, but that's the route we've taken all year", Miley told reporters. "That's been their focus since after that Game 7", Roberts said. He is 1 for 8 with two walks in the first two games and hit into a game-ending groundout with the tying run in scoring position on Saturday.

The Dodgers are 28-12 in their last 40 games overall.

No bullpen day to open up the series for the Brewers.

Roberts sensed anger from Turner but didn't speak with him prior to Game 2.

"It wasn't my best game there, but during the season you got one or two bad games", Chacin said.

An 11-year veteran, Gonzalez is 4-1 with a 1.89 ERA in six career starts against the Dodgers. He had a 4.65 ERA in 10 career appearances, including seven starts, going into Friday.

The power and run production are big reasons the Dodgers acquired Machado from the Baltimore Orioles prior to the trade deadline. It was the second home run of his career, with the first coming in a a road loss to the Pirates on July 13. "And the relay, it's a play that I know that Yasmani will say he should have made".
