Ryan Braun slid across home plate and raised his arms in sheer joy.
The Brewers will need to win twice to advance after dropping two in a row in Los Angeles.
"I don't really think about the one before".
The Brewers added more in the second, seventh, and eighth innings to put Game 6 comfortably out of reach. And while he rebounded against the Brewers in Game 5, the knock on Kershaw is that, for all his greatness, he has underperformed at crucial times in the postseason and has yet to deliver the Dodgers a World Series title.
They were beaten by the Houston Astros in seven games past year.
"They use video people to get sequences".
"The small-market atmosphere is more personable", he said. When back-to-back losses to the hapless Cincinnati Reds soured their playoff hopes, they took three of four from the St. Louis Cardinals and swept the Colorado Rockies. He just hasn't been putting his best swings on the ball, as he'd like to.
Dozier plated the Dodgers' first run with an RBI single in the bottom of the first frame, giving Los Angeles its initial lead.
Milwaukee bars on Water Street are used to busy nights. Expect to see Josh Hader on the mound for multiple innings, plus probably Corey Knebel and Jeremy Jeffress. It is cheaper - and sometimes more effective - to have pitchers throw as hard as they can for as long as they can, he says, and then replace them with another pitcher who can do the same. LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu will start for the Dodgers, hoping to repeat his performance in Game 1 of the NLDS, where he pitched seven shutout innings.
With one out, Machado had a broken-bat single to left and went to second on Guerra's wild pitch. The extra room helped persuade Counsell to give Hader another day of rest.
Freese drove in both runs for the Dodgers. "Try to go pitch by pitch, drive in runs. We didn't execute today". Shaw has not started since Game 3.
Coming into Friday night, the Brewers' bats had been held in check. "We're going to give everything we have and I know the fans are going to give everything they have", said Erik Kratz, Brewers Catcher.
It took the Dodgers until the fourth inning to get a hit off Woodruff, when Joc Pederson singled, and until the fifth to score a run, on an Austin Barnes RBI single that tied the game 1-1. First it was jumping in the air, then he began motioning with his hands. "One would have been great, two would have been awesome".
"So, at that point, you're just trying to pass the baton". Being Game 7, anyone and everyone will be available, save the Game 6 starters. "So, we've got to do a better job tomorrow". Counsell stayed with Knebel for five outs, giving him his first pro plate appearance with the bases loaded in the fifth - he struck out - and Burnes worked two flawless innings.
