Bellinger hitting leadoff for Dodgers vs Brewers in Game 5

Enrique Hernandez of the Los Angeles Dodgers reacts after striking out during the eighth inning against the Milwaukee Brewers in Game Three of the National League Championship Series at Dodger Stadium on Oct. 15 2018

Game 5 is Wednesday afternoon at Dodger Stadium, with Wade Miley going for the Brewers against fellow lefty Clayton Kershaw. Gonzalez even started Game 162 for the Brewers, who needed a win to force a tie-breaking Game 163 against the Chicago Cubs in order to determine who would win the National League Central. Los Angeles had scored only two runs in the previous 27 innings and had struck out 38 times during that stretch.

Don't believe us? Kershaw has registered 12 quality starts (6 IP, 3 ER or fewer) in 22 career postseason opportunities.

Milwaukee had gone scoreless over the final eight innings Tuesday and the first two innings Wednesday. Woodruff then faced more traffic in the sixth inning as Justin Turner led off with a single and Machado was grazed with a pitch. Even in their only other loss during this 15-game stretch, the Brewers scored three runs in Game 2 of the NLCS. "Doesn't really matter how you get here, but thankful that we are here now for sure". "And putting everything else on the back burner as best I possibly can".

Just two of the Brewers' hits went for extra bases. He used Miley for one hitter, a walk to leadoff man Cody Bellinger, and then hooked him for reliever Brandon Woodruff as the ballpark buzzed with disbelief. Kershaw's final line, once he was lifted for Pedro Baez, included two walks and nine strikeouts that all came on either his slider or curveball.

The Brewers' Curtis Granderson had a pinch-hit RBI double in the ninth inning off Ryan Madson.

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.

It took the Dodgers until the fourth inning to get a hit off Woodruff, when Joc Pederson singled, and until the fifth to score a run, on an Austin Barnes RBI single that tied the game 1-1. 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.

With the chance to move to the brink of the World Series, a lineup that was resourceful and powerful throughout the regular season and in the division series couldn't hit a homer or string together any significant rallies. Teams with a 3-2 lead in a best-of-seven NLCS have a 15-6 series record.

Milwaukee's starters have tossed just 14 innings in the NLCS, the lowest total ever through five games, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
