Three of them - and one of his two wild pitches - came in a fifth inning that nearly chased him from the game.

The Dodgers scored three times in the eighth to make it 6-4, then almost tied it in the ninth.

"It made it a lot easier knowing I was just another piece to this ballclub", Machado said.

Kershaw was chased before he could retire a batter in the fourth inning.

"I think that that's something that to a man, I think our guys are taking it personal", manager Dave Roberts said of his relievers being overlooked. With a 4-3 Dodgers' lead and two outs in the eighth, Maeda entered the game with the tying run on first base. "They wanted me to be a part of this".

Max Muncy has four home runs and 10 RBIs while slugging.800 over his past 10 games for Los Angeles.


"Jhoulys is a true competitor, and he's out on the mound thinking of ways to beat you", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday.

It was another miserable October night for the lefty, whose regular-season brilliance has often disappeared in the postseason. Switch-hitter Yasmani Grandal hits eight, followed by starter Clayton Kershaw.

Miley handed a 2-0 lead over to his bullpen and Travis Shaw tacked on a solo drive in the sixth, delighting a yellow towel-waving crowd of 43,905 at Miller Park. David Freese skied a ball toward the wall in right-center and Cain tracked it on the run, chopped his steps on the warning track and jumped to snatch it, his body fully extended.

Jansen pitched the ninth for his second save of the playoffs, retiring Milwaukee's National League Most Valuable Player candidate Christian Yelich on a broken bat ground out to end the game with a runner on second base.

Braun's clutch swing closed the book on Kershaw, who was charged with five runs, four earned, and six hits.

George Webb Restaurants has a long-standing promotion to give away a free burger whenever the Brewers win 12 straight. "We've talked about September 1 started our playoff run, and they've been very successful, giving us a chance to hold our team within striking distance, have given us a chance to win games late".


George Webb planned to announce the giveaway date and time after the game.

Leading up to the NLCS all I have heard about is how good the Brewers bullpen is.

George Webb also paid up in 1987.

Hader wasn't available in Game 2, Jeffress was, and Milwaukee surely regretted not having the lefty at its disposal.

Turner was 2-for-4 in the Dodgers' comeback victory in Game 2.

With both the American League Championship and National League Championship matchups set, the top two teams from each League are set to battle for an opportunity to go to the World Series.
