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.

The Brewers' attempt to deke the Dodgers into fielding a platoon-heavy lineup didn't necessarily pan out, as both Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy started.

Milwaukee turned to its bullpen after the first batter, bringing in Brandon Woodruff, a right-hander.

One inning later, it was Muncy who came up oversized, after Turner had singled and Manny Machado was hit in the elbow with a pitch. But, the Dodgers went with it and all they could do was hope Urias would not need to be used in an extraneous situation. "Doesn't really matter how you get here, but thankful that we are here now for sure".

Game 6 is Friday night in Milwaukee.

"We're in a good spot, man", Counsell said. However, he got roughed up in Game 1 of the NLCS by the Milwaukee Brewers, giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits in three-plus innings.

The Dodgers jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a first-inning RBI single from Brian Dozier, who was making his first start of the postseason. "Like I said, we're trying to get to the World Series, and this is the strategic side of it". "I was going on contact (when Enrique Hernandez was batting)".

The Da Vinci High School would not fully comment on the story, saying only that those involved were "remorseful". The authorities are working with the school to determine how best to proceed, said Lt Doroshov.

After the game, they were understandably frustrated with the loss, and Kiké Hernandez pointed at the atmosphere (or lack thereof) at Dodger Stadium.

Pitching in 82-degree sunshine, Kershaw was well-rested and masterful in allowing one run and three hits over seven.

Woodruff, as he has all postseason, pitched into an unshakable groove, scattering just one hit and one walk in his first four innings.

Taylor promptly stole third and scored two batters later on Austin Barnes' single that skipped off the mound and carried into center field.

"It's just a classic case of he executed a lot of pitches", Counsell said. The 30-year-old will be looking for redemption in Los Angeles' third and final home game of the series, after his three-inning outing in the NLCS Game 1 loss at Miller Park.

Kershaw, 30, was 9-5 with a 2.73 ERA in 26 regular-season starts this year. He says the Dodgers' play in Game 1 was "unacceptable" and the Brewers "put us against the wall early and never looked back!"

The Brewers tied the game 1-1 in the fifth on an RBI double from pinch hitter Domingo Santana to score Orlando Arcia from first base.
