Brewers fall 5-2 to Dodgers in Game 5

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

He was facing Brewers starter Wade Miley until, suddenly, he wasn't.

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. In the inning, Max Muncy's RBI single knocked out Woodruff after Manny Machado was drilled by a pitch to put runners on first and second. Milwaukee scored in the fifth and was held scoreless for the next eight frames.

Taylor's hustle in running to first, which helped cause the error, advancing to second and then stealing third was nearly infectious, as a series of little things helped the Dodgers win a second consecutive playoff game without hitting a home run. Kershaw debuted with the Dodgers in 2008 and, in the decade since, has never finished a regular season with an ERA above 2.91.

Making what could be his final start for the Dodgers, Clayton Kershaw allowed a single but a caught stealing helped him face the minimum through what was an efficient two innings. Santana also had a two-run pinch single in Game 1.

"We're in a good spot, man", Counsell said. "And putting everything else on the back burner as best I possibly can".

Woodruff, the reliever who homered against Kershaw in Game 1, walked following Arcia's one-out single to begin the rally. He lasted just three innings in losing the NLCS opener while giving up five runs - four earned - at Miller Park. Kershaw struck out Jesus Aguilar to end the third, the first of 13 consecutive batters that the left-hander retired. The Crew was up 1-0 at that point.


Monday's 4-0 Game 3 loss to the Brewers wasn't the effort the Dodgers would have liked at home. He then gave way to Ryan Madson, who allowed back-to-back two-out doubles, with Curtis Granderson's driving in a run.

Tied 1-all, Muncy grounded a 1-2 pitch from Brandon Woodruff into left field, scoring Justin Turner, who led off with a single. "It was huge to get to third base, less than two outs, give us a shot to do some things, and him going to second base on the errant throw was big".

The rest of this series will play out in Milwaukee, and the Dodgers positioned themselves by winning two of three games at home.

This is an embarrassing showing from their fanbase with a trip to the World Series on the line.

And when Bellinger finally ended it, the only NLCS game that had lasted longer was the New York Mets' 15-inning victory over Atlanta in Game 5 in 1999, which took 5 hours, 46 minutes.
