Dodgers on cusp of World Series after beating Brewers

Milwaukee relief pitcher Brandon Woodruff had come into the game for Wade Miley, who faced one batter in the first inning before heading to the dugout, and was dominating.

The series shifts back to Milwaukee for Game 6 on Friday. Max Muncy, who was in the lineup because Los Angeles really didn't have another choice, drove in the go-ahead run. And I'm a different hitter than I was previous year. "Maybe I threw some more curveballs today than I did in Game 1". That is the three-letter abbreviation for Milwaukee, and a reminder that the Brewers' only task left, after a 162-game season and spirited playoff run, is to not let the Dodgers win another contest at Miller Park.

"There's a bunch of guys we need offence from", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. Julio Urias earned the win in relief as the ninth LA pitcher as he gave up one hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning of relief. He allowed three hits, two walks, and struck out nine in what may have been one of his best playoff starts ever. Domingo Santana contributed an RBI pinch-hit double. Junior Guerra took the loss in relief as he surrendered one earned run on two hits with four strikeouts and no walks over 3 2/3 innings. "And a true sign of a major leaguer that lasts and excels is that you have to be able to adapt because eventually physical skills change, the league adjusts to you, and you've got to be able to make adjustments back and kind of learn on the fly". The Dodgers pulled off a five-hour, 13-inning win late Tuesday night on a single by Cody Bellinger, and must win again Wednesday to avoid having to take two straight in Milwaukee to move on to the World Series.

The team that hit a franchise and NL-leading 235 home runs in the regular season did it playing small ball instead, driving in all but one of its runs on singles.

That means if the Brewers make it to the World Series, Gonzalez can not be on the roster since a player replaced due to injury in one series is required to sit out the next one. For Machado to publically say that a little extra effort on the basepaths is just not his style is pretty pathetic. He sent the pitch to right field, bringing Machado in from second base for the winning run.

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

So if they continue to take that approach then they have a good chance of closing out the Brewers in Game 6 back at Miller Park.

The Dodgers led 1-0 on Brian Dozier's RBI single in the first off Gio Gonzalez, who left after twisting his ankle while trying to field an infield single by Puig in the second.
