Kershaw gem puts Dodgers one win away from World Series

The Milwaukee Brewers returned home Thursday evening, October 18 trailing the Los Angeles Dodgers three games to two in the NLCS.

For the first time since late April, the Brewers have finished back-to-back games with fewer than two runs.

With one out in the 13th, Machado hit a broken-bat single to left field and went to second on Guerra's wild pitch.

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

Game 5 opened with a twist as Milwaukee left-handed starter Wade Miley walked the first batter he faced, Cody Bellinger, and then was replaced by right-hander Brandon Woodruff.

So if there are teams that would make knee-jerk changes ahead of a do-or-die game - that would turn their lineup over, or ride their best arm until it fell limp - the Brewers are likely not one of them. Grandal was one for four with three strike outs Monday, and had his third passed ball of the series, drawing boos from the crowd of 52,793. As the Dodgers advanced to the NLCS, Kershaw got the Game 1 nod against the Brewers and struggled. The Dodgers earned their fifth extra-inning playoff victory in franchise history and their first since winning Game 4 of the 1988 NLCS against the New York Mets. The lefty retired his last 13 batters and blanked Milwaukee following Lorenzo Cain's RBI double in the top of the second.

The most important thing of the day: Despite the Dodgers' victory in Game 2, Miley outpitched Ryu, tossing 5 2/3 scoreless frames to Ryu's 4 1/3-inning, two-run performance. Woodruff homered off Kershaw in Game 1 in Milwaukee, becoming the third relief pitcher to homer in a postseason game.

The Brewers reportedly suspect the Dodgers of sending an employee around the stadium to relay stolen signals. The Dodgers are 2-0 coming off a loss this postseason.

"There is concern amongst some Brewers that the Dodgers are using video to pick up their signs, multiple sources tell The Athletic", the report says.

The Dodgers started unveiling their relievers in the sixth inning, beginning with Pedro Baez and heading on, in order, to Kenta Maeda, Caleb Ferguson, Ryan Madson, Kenley Jansen, Alex Wood, Dylan Floro and Urias.

The Dodgers said tickets were still available for Game 5, which begins at 2:05 p.m. PDT. He didn't factor in the decision either time. Gonzalez even started Game 162 for the Brewers, who needed a win to force a tie-breaking Game 163 against the Chicago Cubs in order to determine who would win the National League Central. Kershaw had his best performance of this postseason, limiting the Brewers to a run and three hits while striking out nine.
