Dodgers level series with Brewers, Astros strike quickly

Share

Knebel only makes up part of the four-headed monster that makes up the Brewers bullpen, Josh Hader (NL Pitcher of the Month April, set Major League Baseball record for strikeouts by a left-handed relief pitcher with 143), Jeremy Jeffress (1.29 ERA, 2nd in Major League Baseball among relievers), and Joakim Soria will all have to play a big role at times during this series if Milwaukee wants to advance.

After starter Gio Gonzalez went two innings, nicked by Machado's home run, Woodruff entered in the top of the third.

Cody Bellinger got Los Angeles on the board with an RBI single in the seventh, chasing Corbin Burnes and stopping an 0-for-15 slide in the playoffs that landed him on the bench at the start of the game.

Although they left three on base in the seventh, the Dodgers would take the lead in the next when Chris Taylor reached first base on a single and Turner seized upon a split-fingered fastball from Jeffress, sending it 388 feet.

The 25-year-old Woodruff hit his first career homer July 13 at Pittsburgh. The last World Series the Dodgers won.

Woodruff led off the third inning with a long drive to right-center, tying Game 1 of the NL Championship Series at 1. It was followed by a single from Miley - giving him two hits, one more than the Dodgers to that point of the afternoon - at the end of a 10-pitch at-bat, then a double from Cain.

Josh Reddick hit a solo homer leading off the ninth, and Yuli Gurriel sliced a three-run shot into the crowd to clinch it. "He's got a number of different tricks in his bag, so to speak, that he goes to get outs, and I enjoy that. But I'm just going to go out, just try to give my team a chance to win the game and just have fun". The bullpen went 2-0 with a save and a 1.17 ERA in the three-game Division Series sweep Colorado.

The Dodgers out-hit the Brewers 9-7. In his lone NLDS start against the Rockies, he twirled five scoreless innings in Game 2. Milwaukee leads Los Angeles 2-1 in the bottom of the fourth inning. "I didn't know he could do that, but I knew he could hit a little bit".

Coric stuns Federer in Shanghai, faces Djokovic in final
Federer won the Australian Open at the start of this year but has had a mediocre season by his sky-high standards. Djokovic won a record fourth Shanghai Masters title with a 6-3 6-4 win over 13th-seeded Borna Coric on Sunday.

"We made a choice basically to add another pitcher, because it could be a seven-game series", manager Craig Counsell said.

It was the first time in postseason history that a lefty-batting pitcher went deep off a left-hander. He has four postseason go-ahead home runs since he joined the club in 2014, tied with Daniel Murphy for the most in that span. That run was charged to Ryu. Jesus Aguilar has 35 home runs this season, fifth in the National League. He dropped to 2-5 with a 5.24 ERA in 11 career NLCS games.

Manager Dave Roberts said he likes the pairing of Barnes and Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu.
