NLCS Preview: Game 5 Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Dodgers

"It was a great baseball game, it really was", Yelich said. "He has the ability to punch guys out".

Game 6 will be played Friday in Milwaukee.

Just two of the Brewers' hits went for extra bases. The under is 6-2-1 in the last nine Kershaw starts versus Milwaukee. "It's no big surprise to us - he's a gamer, he's a grinder, and it was huge".

Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said: "I thought it was worth the risk of trying to expand to Bellinger, and if the at-bat goes to Grandal, we walk Grandal". "We're going back home, to me, in a position of strength".

Last year's Fall Classic, which saw the Houston Astros top the Dodgers in seven games, drew a litany of famous faces to Chavez Ravine, including John Legend, Tiger Woods, Kutcher and Kunis, Apatow and Mann, and Lowe. "That's where our experience comes in".

The Dodgers will send their ace, Clayton Kershaw, to the mound.

Pitching in 82-degree sunshine, Kershaw was well-rested and masterful in allowing one run and three hits over seven. The Brewers pulled their starting pitcher after just one batter.

The statistics show that there were 71,251 race hate crimes recorded in 2017/18, which accounts for 76 per cent of the total. It was based on face-to-face interviews with victims and meant to give a broad overview of crime in that region.


Kershaw recovered from the shortest postseason start of his career.

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

Woodruff (1-1) gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits over 5 1/3 innings.

The Brewers had the potential go-ahead run at third in the seventh. Ryan Braun worked a walk to load the bases with two outs but Kershaw escaped the jam by striking out Jesús Aguilar. Wouldn't you want to at least try to attend this game? "Minimizing damage as best you can as a starting pitcher is huge".

Pina took third on pinch-hitter Curtis Granderson's flyout to center before Cain grounded out against Dylan Floro to end the inning.

The Brewers had a chance in the ninth against closer Kenley Jansen.

"Just not capitalizing", he said.

Canada becomes first major economy to legalise recreational cannabis
Shortly after 9 a.m. local time, 48 of 97 available flower products were sold out on the B.C. cannabis online store. Canada is now the world's largest legal weed marketplace , but this is not a pot free-for-all.


Both benches cleared after Machado clipped the back leg of Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar while running out his groundout Tuesday night in the 10th inning of Game 4.

The team that hit a franchise and NL-leading 235 home runs in the regular season did it playing small ball instead, driving in all but one of its runs on singles.

"That goes kind of under the table a little bit", Barnes said.

Dodgers reliever Julio Urias (1-0) pitched a scoreless 13th inning to earn the victory. Chris Taylor went 0-for-4, but walked twice and scored a run from the leadoff spot in the victory.

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

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

"It's just a classic case of he executed a lot of pitches", Counsell said. Their only loss came in the 1952 World Series against the Yankees.
