Bellinger leads off vs. Brewers in Game 5

Gio Gonzalez to miss rest of postseason for Brewers

The Brewers took a 2-1 lead in the NLCS after beating the Dodgers 4-0 in Game 3 on Monday.

The victor of the series will take on either the reigning champion Houston Astros - who beat the Dodgers in seven games last season - or the Boston Red Sox in Major League Baseball's championship showcase. It's frustrating, it's part of the game of baseball though.

He said the Dodgers' play in Game 1 was "unacceptable". "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 hadn't scored fewer than two runs in a game since Pittsburgh blanked them on September 22. Kershaw allowed two hits over eight shutout innings, struck out three and walked none in the best postseason outing of his career. LA has by no means been underperforming - previously unheralded Chris Taylor has been a surprising star of the series, with five hits in the first two games and four scored runs total.

Puig and Justin Turner were the lone Dodgers to produce a multi-hit game; each also drove in a run. 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.

Yelich isn't alone in his slump, however: Milwaukee is batting.224 through four games in the NLCS, striking out 41 times - which would seem like a lot if the Dodgers hadn't struck out 49 times.

"They want us to play well, and they have every right to expect that from us", Roberts said. "Brandon Woodruff is a really good pitcher, so he gets to get some outs".

Machado had reached base with a one-out single before moving to second on a wild pitch while Bellinger was at the plate. The Dodgers are 2-0 coming off a loss this postseason.

The Dodgers are making one change certain to make fans happy. Teams with a 3-2 lead in a best-of-seven NLCS have a 15-6 series record.

The Brewers tied the game 1-1 in the fifth on an RBI double from pinch hitter Domingo Santana to score Orlando Arcia from first base.

The Dodgers started unveiling their relievers in the sixth inning, beginning with Pedro Baez and heading on, in order, to Kenta Maeda, Caleb Ferguson, Ryan Madson, Kenley Jansen, Alex Wood, Dylan Floro and Urias. Before you lay any Dodgers vs. Brewers picks of your own, there's no better expert out there than Adam Thompson. Woodruff homered off Kershaw in Game 1 in Milwaukee, becoming the third relief pitcher to homer in a postseason game.

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.
