Austin Barnes Will Start NLCS Game 4 Over Yasmani Grandal

LOS ANGELES - Milwaukee Brewers starter Gio Gonzalez was forced to leave his start in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series after only one inning because of what appeared to be an ankle injury. Once again, I get the instinct in the heat of a loss to go there ... but it just doesn't play to rip your own fans for not being professional baseball players when they were paying to come watch actual professional baseball players play professional baseball. He's trying his best.

At one point, a smattering of them began "We want Austin!" chants as a plea for Barnes to replace him, which teammate Enrique Hernandez did not appreciate. Grandal was one for four with three strike outs Monday, and had his third passed ball of the series, drawing boos from the crowd of 52,793. Walker Buehler was strong until the seventh inning but it wasn't like the offense was going to help even if he allowed only two runs. One thing is clear and that is that the Dodgers are in need of a lineup change.

Asked repeatedly about the wild pitch that led to a run in Game 3, Grandal said: "I think it's driving you guys nuts more than it's driving me".

At various times in the fight, Crawford was able to effectively switch up his stance and land numerous shots to the body. I looked over to the corner and he was taking deep breaths, so I said, 'Oh, he's exhausted .' I stepped it up".

Leishman, Woodland, and Sharma Share CIMB Lead
Leishman becomes the first non-American to win the tournament since its inception in 2010 and earns him a $1 260 000 paycheque. The tour moves on to the CJ Cup in South Korea next week and the World Golf Championships in Shanghai starting on October 25.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro: yay or nay?
The smartphone could have a few variants to choose from, coming with 4GB, 6GB or 8GB RAM, and up to 512GB of built-in storage. The Huawei Mate 20 Lite has already launched and, indeed, is now available from numerous networks and retailers in the UK.

The Milwaukee Brewers took an early lead on the Dodgers and then coasted to a 4-0 victory to take a 2-1 series lead.

"If they think they can do it, put on your gear and go catch 99 mile per hour fastballs and breaking balls with a lot of movement".

Adding to what has been a spiraling direction for the struggling Grandal was the catcher's quote following a tough game three. He's having a little bit of a rough patch. That means Game 4 is as close to a must-win for the Dodgers as it gets without literally being a must-win game. "They're passionate. They want to win". "Overall, it was a pretty bad game for everybody that calls themselves Dodgers".
