Dodgers' Kershaw undecided on opt-out

Dodgers' Kershaw undecided on opt-out

The Los Angeles Dodgers earned a 2-1 walk-off victory in extra innings in Game 4 of the 2018 National League Championship Series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night, and these teams will play Game 5 less than 16 hours later at Dodger Stadium. The Brewers will start left-hander Wade Miley, who walked Cody Bellinger to open Game 5 before getting pulled in an interesting piece of strategy by manager Craig Counsell.

Game 6 is Friday night in Milwaukee. He went seven strong innings, allowing just one run on three hits with nine strikeouts.

"To go back to Milwaukee up 3-2 as opposed to being down 3-2 is huge for us", Kershaw said.

Milwaukee had gone scoreless over the final eight innings Tuesday and the first two innings Wednesday.

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. That means even if the Brewers make the World Series, Gonzalez won't be eligible to pitch for the rest of the postseason.

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.

"In that situation it's 1-0, so thankfully Barnes came up huge right there, got that big knock for us, because if the runner is on third, Puig is probably going to get that at-bat and my day is over", Kershaw said. "Doesn't really matter how you get here, but thankful that we are here now for sure". "We're going back home, to me, in a position of strength". Barnes broke the Dodgers' 0 for 7 streak with a runner on third and less than two outs in the NLCS while improving the team's batting average to.300 in the playoffs. He lasted just three innings in losing the NLCS opener while giving up five runs - four earned - at Miller Park. Yasiel Puig added a pinch-hit RBI single in the inning to give the Dodgers a 3-1 lead.

Los Angeles extended the lead to 5-1 in the seventh on Turner's RBI single that scored Kershaw, who walked, and pinch-hitter Brian Dozier's RBI groundout.

In the bottom of the seventh, Justin Turner singled to center field, advancing to second.

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

Davies wasn't on the roster for the NL Division Series.

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