Why The Brewers Pulled Their SP After 5 Pitches vs

Behind the Box Score Jhoulys Chacin dominates and Orlando Arcia stays hot

Fans on hand witnessed the Dodgers grab a 3-2 lead over the Brewers amid a stellar performance from Dodgers ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw, who shook off past playoff failures to deliver in the key game. Milwaukee got only two runners to third base, none after the seventh inning. "One time is an accident". Kershaw debuted with the Dodgers in 2008 and, in the decade since, has never finished a regular season with an ERA above 2.91. Yasiel Puig's pinch-hit RBI single extended the Dodgers' lead 3-1. Los Angeles had scored only two runs in the previous 27 innings and had struck out 38 times during that stretch.

The Dodgers struggled to score two runs over 13 innings yesterday and I'm going to take advantage of a still-hot Milwaukee team in Game 5.

With so much at stake, the three-time Cy Young Award victor bounced back from one of his worst postseason starts with one of his best, pitching the Dodgers past the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 Wednesday for a 3-2 lead in the NL Championship 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. Max Muncy single to left field, sending Manny Machado to second and scoring Justin Turner. Dozier had one hit in five previous at-bats in the playoffs.

Milwaukee's Jhoulys Chacin pitched 5 1/3 scoreless innings, and the Brewers' bullpen snuffed out a last-ditch, ninth-inning Los Angeles rally to secure the result. The last time the Dodgers won back-to-back postseason games without a home run was the 1947 World Series.

Then the wait was on. This allowed Counsell to get a lefty-lefty matchup to begin the game and still start Miley in Game 6 on Friday.

Google is 'exploring' a censored search tool for China
Google tried to suppress an internal memo written by an employee that detailed how some aspects of the service would work. Critics believe that Google chooses the big money from China and betrayed the "Don't be evil " own corporate moto.

The Brewers don't have much time to fix their woes, but Counsell might need to contemplate more lineup changes for Game 5.

"There's a bunch of guys we need offense from", Milwaukee manager Craig Counsel said.

"I think the most special part of that was him running on the first pitch", Turner said. "We're going back home, to me, in a position of strength". "We've got some good contributions from guys at the bottom".

Clayton Kershaw will be the Dodgers starting pitcher, seeking to rebound from his shortest postseason start, facing fellow left-hander Wade Miley.

Tuesday's clash was tied at 1-1 through five innings.

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.
