"I think it was the first time I ever got mobbed out in the outfield".

Among those who have logged at least 1,500 innings for the Dodgers, he ranks second to Jeff Pfeffer - a man who pitched before the Great Depression - with a 2.39 ERA. At the time of that writing (October 30, 2017), Dodger relievers allowed 10 of 16 runners inherited from Kershaw in the playoffs to score, a strand rate of 37.5 percent. It is one thing to not run out a groundball on the Baltimore Orioles. With fans on their feet, pinch-hitter Travis Shaw struck out with a runner on third to end the inning.

"He's a player that has a history of those types of incidents", Yelich said. "He has the ability to punch guys out". This allowed Counsell to get a lefty-lefty matchup to begin the game and still start Miley in Game 6 on Friday.

In a tied series with the Brewers, tensions are pretty high for the Dodgers as they're looking to avenge last season to get back and win the World Series.

"To go back to Milwaukee up 3-2 as opposed to being down 3-2 is huge for us", Kershaw said.

"There's a bunch of guys we need offence from", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

Last year's Fall Classic, which saw the Houston Astros top the Dodgers in seven games, drew a litany of famous faces to Chavez Ravine, including John Legend, Tiger Woods, Kutcher and Kunis, Apatow and Mann, and Lowe.

Clayton Kershaw starts for the Dodgers, while Wade Miley pitches for Milwaukee on three days' rest.

He says he hasn't made a decision. Kershaw gave up five runs (four earned) in three-plus innings of Game 1.

Don't believe us? Kershaw has registered 12 quality starts (6 IP, 3 ER or fewer) in 22 career postseason opportunities. He lasted just three innings in losing the NLCS opener while giving up five runs - four earned - at Miller Park.

"We're good for sure", Aguilar said. The three-time Cy Young Award victor carried a career 5.68 postseason ERA following his NLDS Game 1 start against the Diamondbacks previous year, a sample size spanning 15 starts and four relief appearances totaling 95 1/3 innings. "Eventually it's going to catch up to you". He returned to the postseason, starting Game 2 of the NLDS against the Braves this year and tossed eight shutout frames on just two hits with no walks.

Brewers star Christian Yelich, who almost won the NL Triple Crown this season, was hitless in four at-bats.

"Just not capitalizing", he said. Barnes broke the Dodgers' 0 for 7 streak with a runner on third and less than two outs in the NLCS while improving the team's batting average to.300 in the playoffs. Austin Barnes singled to center field - driving Chris Taylor home.

"There is a ball-in-play component", Roberts said, "but I also think there's a quality of contact".

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.

Muncy grounded a 1-2 pitch from Brandon Woodruff into left field, scoring Turner, who led off with a single.

Muncy's go-ahead RBI came after Justin Turner singled to lead off the sixth and Manny Machado was hit by a pitch.

Kershaw has struggled in the postseason during his career, with his numbers never matching his excellence during the regular season. In Game 2 of this series, he twirled 5 2/3 scoreless innings. That's just not my personality, that's not my cup of tea, that's not who I am. The Brewers were up only 1-0 at the time, but there have been moments in this series where that has seemed like an insurmountable deficit for the Dodgers. Their only loss came in the 1952 World Series against the Yankees. Los Angeles trails the best-of-seven series 2-1.

Granderson chipped his right front tooth in the ninth and wore a bandage on his lower lip where his helmet hit him.

"We couldn't find it out there". "Hopefully, I'll be able to eat tonight, which is the biggest concern".
