Brewers, Dodgers even in NLCS after late night loss in extra innings

But I think a bunch of guys are not really on it right now offensively.

Kershaw was asked what the Dodgers franchise - the one that made him the seventh overall pick in 2006 - has meant to him.

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

Roughed up in the NLCS opener, Kershaw mixed his fastball and slider on a hot day to shut down the Brewers. With fans on their feet, pinch-hitter Travis Shaw struck out with a runner on third to end the inning.

"He's a player that has a history of those types of incidents", Yelich said. The NLCS already is guaranteed to have a Game 6 on Friday at Milwaukee. The Brewers will counter with left-hander Wade Miley, who held the Dodgers scoreless over 5 2/3 innings in Game 2.

"We're back tied, the series is tied, and we're looking forward to tomorrow", he said. "We turned the page, and now we have to come and play the game (Wednesday)".

"I played right field in the minor leagues a lot before I started playing center field".

Betting markets have the Dodgers as a prohibitive favorite to advance to the World Series despite finishing on the road.

"I feel like I'm getting pitched similar to the way I've been pitched throughout the year", Yelich said after Game 5. Woodruff homered off Kershaw in Game 1 in Milwaukee, becoming the third relief pitcher to homer in a postseason game.

The Dodgers are 17-5 in their last 22 playoff home games.

Kershaw can opt out of the remaining two seasons of his current seven-year contract after this campaign, but he remains undecided on how he will proceed.

Barnes' single not only brought home Taylor, but it made a hard decision an easy one for manager Dave Roberts. He struck out nine, all on breaking pitches, and walked two. "I don't know. Call it what you want". "Maybe I threw some more curveballs today than I did in Game 1".

The three-time NL Cy Young Award victor pitched in and out of trouble in the third, when the Brewers loaded the bases and scored their lone run. Now you've got a guy on third with no outs.

Curtis Granderson hit an RBI double in the ninth.

"It was huge to get there to third base, less than two outs, give us a shot to do some things", Turner said.

Yelich, who almost won the NL Triple Crown this season, was hitless in four at-bats.

"Just not capitalizing", he said.

Woodruff escaped a first-inning jam and kept the Dodgers in check until the fifth, when he gave up Austin Barnes's tying single. The Dodgers would have been forced to use Urias for at least one more inning and if not, it would have cost the team Hyun-Jin Ryu who has arguably been the team's best starter this season. His goal would be to repeat his outing from Saturday at Milwaukee, when he breezed through his outing, giving up only two hits.

Kershaw has struggled in the postseason during his career, with his numbers never matching his excellence during the regular season. But he took the loss after yielding two earned runs and five hits over 5 1/3.

"Honestly, I was surprised that they were pitching to me", Bellinger said. The lefty retired his last 13 batters and blanked Milwaukee following Lorenzo Cain's RBI double in the top of the second. But, Los Angeles needs wins, they are trying to get to the World Series ad ever base runner matters.

Below you'll find the World Series schedule, scores and results. Teams with a 3-2 lead in a best-of-seven NLCS have a 15-6 series record. He started Games 2 and 3 and came off the bench in the 11th inning on Tuesday for Milwaukee.
