Kershaw's strong outing lifts Dodgers to 3-2 NLCS lead

Kershaw's strong outing lifts Dodgers to 3-2 NLCS lead

The Brewers had a prime opportunity to take a commanding 3-1 series lead, but couldn't get it done against countless Dodgers relievers. His Dodgers teammates sprinted from the third base dugout to join him.

Machado had reached base with a one-out single before moving to second on a wild pitch while Bellinger was at the plate.

The Dodgers will look to even the series on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

The Brewers can rally around the fact they are returning to hitter- friendly Miller Park, after struggling for the past two games at Dodger Stadium, where they combined for three runs over 22 innings.

"It's a dirty play by a dirty player", Yelich said. "One time is an accident".

Canada Becomes 2nd Country to Legalize Recreational Marijuana
What does Canada have to say of the law? In neighbouring USA , nine states and the District of Columbia have legalised marijuana. As Canada welcomes legalization, supply shortages could develop, as happened in some USA states when legalization arrived.

Roseanne Angrily Reacts To "The Conners" Killing Her Character With Opioid Overdose
Or I could tell you that Roseanne Conner accepts a job as White House press secretary, and then wait and see if you believe me. That seems unlikely to drive away fans, though, indistinguishable as it is from what they're used to by this point.

Aguilar, however, said the two talked it out after Machado singled in the 13th.

"I think we gave each other a big hug", Bellinger said. "But I just - understanding and seeing what Cody has been going through and really just wearing it and the weight of the world on him". "Not just because of the fans, but because of how we were playing the game ..." Hill was making his first appearance in the NLCS after starting the Dodgers on their way to the victory in the NLDS clincher at Atlanta on October 8. Gonzalez gave up one run on two hits in one-plus inning, injuring himself while trying to field a Yasiel Puig infield single. The Brewers were up only 1-0 at the time, but there have been moments in this series where that has seemed like an insurmountable deficit for the Dodgers. Dozier had one hit in five previous at-bats in the playoffs. Milwaukee scored in the fifth and was held scoreless for the next eight frames.

Overall he surrendered one earned run on three hits with two walks and nine strikeouts to rebound from his lackluster performance in Game 1, in which he was the losing pitcher.

Then the wait was on. "We've got some good contributions from guys at the bottom. But I think a bunch of guys are not really on it right now offensively".

Counsell attempted to control the Dodgers' lineup in Game 5, but as much as he tried to dictate the game by affecting Los Angeles' lineup, he couldn't keep them from scoring runs with moves he more or less forced. He lasted just three innings in losing the NLCS opener while giving up five runs - four earned - at Miller Park. 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.
