Kershaw ready to go after Dodgers beat Brewers in wild Game 4

Adjust Comment Print

The series shifts back to Milwaukee for Game 6 on Friday.

What does all of this mean for those of us wagering on the game?

Milwaukee's fearsome bullpen has been responsible for 14 of the Dodgers' 16 runs in the series, and 12 of those have come in the sixth inning or later.

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. Order was restored quickly, but the Brewers remained incensed that Machado would clip a player while running through the bag.

The Brewers hadn't scored fewer than two runs in a game since Pittsburgh blanked them on September 22.

"Rich initially was good, and gave us five innings, but the bullpen, what they did tonight against a very good offensive club, my hat's off to these guys", Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. They want the best out of all of us, especially in the postseason.

If the Brewers rally to win the series and this ends up being Kershaw's last start for the Dodgers, he left behind a gem.

The Dodgers, who led the National League with 235 homers, drove in all but one of their runs with singles.

Enrique Hernandez was none too pleased on how the Dodgers played during the 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, nor with how the fan base acted throughout the defeat. Dozier had one hit in five previous at-bats in the playoffs.

The Dodgers' defence also contributed to the woes with several nifty plays, including Cody Bellinger's full-stretch, diving catch of Cain's sinking liner leading off the 10th.

Then the wait was on.

The Brewers tied the game 1-all in the fifth on pinch-hitter Domingo Santana's RBI double that took one hop against the right-field wall with Yasiel Puig scrambling in pursuit.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3, 1.97) shut down the opposition all season, never allowing more than three runs in any outing. This was a bit of gamesmanship on the part of Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell.

Fellow lefty Wade Miley (5-2, 2.57) hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any start, and he's saved some of his best work for the Dodgers. "I don't think I'd single those two guys out, I think there's a bunch of guys we need to get going, and we will".

The Brewers had a prime opportunity to take a commanding 3-1 series lead, but couldn't get it done against countless Dodgers relievers. 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.
