Manny Pina led off the seventh with a double punctuated by a big celebration at second base, but he didn't score.
Roughed up in the NLCS opener, Kershaw mixed his fastball and slider on a hot day to shut down the Brewers.
And while everyone loves to rag on him, think about this: The Dodgers ace has a better career postseason ERA (4.26) than Chris Sale (5.85), David Price (5.42), CC Sabathia (4.31) and Luis Severino (6.26). "He has the ability to punch guys out". He used Miley for one hitter, a walk to leadoff man Cody Bellinger, and then hooked him for reliever Brandon Woodruff as the ballpark buzzed with disbelief. The Dodgers scored just seven runs in their three NLCS home games and did not hit a home run.
"To go back to Milwaukee up 3-2 as opposed to being down 3-2 is huge for us", Kershaw said.
It was all for naught as Manny Machado grounded into what was his second double play of the game.
"We're good for sure", Aguilar said. They went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position, stranding 10 runners.
The Dodgers haven't been in back-to-back World Series since losing to the Yankees in 1977 and '78. "Once I saw they were attacking me, it was just kind of grind mode and do what you can to put the ball in play and try to end the game". "That's where our experience comes in".
Clayton Kershaw has a reputation for being bad in the postseason, but let's look at this situation for what it is: Kershaw has good starts in the playoffs and he has bad ones, as well.
Cody Bellinger singled home the winning run with two outs in the 13th inning Tuesday night to give Los Angeles a 2-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers that tied the NL Championship Series at two games apiece. Kershaw had his best performance of this postseason, limiting the Brewers to a run and three hits while striking out nine.
Tuesday's clash was tied at 1-1 through five innings.
Game 5 of the NLCS, meanwhile, is on FOX Sports 1. However, that changed in a 32-pitch third when the bottom of the Brewers' lineup again proved to be problematic. "I don't know. Call it what you want". "Minimizing damage as best you can as a starting pitcher is huge".
Down one run in the fifth inning of Game 5 on Wednesday, the Dodgers' backup catcher delivered perhaps the series' most consequential hit to date.
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.
"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.
Taylor connected on a 97 miles per hour four-seam fastball for an infield single and was able to take second on a throwing error by Milwaukee shortstop Orlando Arcia.
With one out, Machado had a broken-bat single to left and went to second on Guerra's wild pitch. But a few moments later, Yasiel Puig singled to center, scoring Machado - making it 3-1 Los Angeles after six complete.
"It's just a classic case of he executed a lot of pitches", Counsell said.
The Dodgers are 5-1 in series when they own a 3-2 lead.
The "start, ' on three days" rest, was essentially treated as a bullpen day for Miley.
