Brewers hold off the Dodgers to force Game 7 of the NLCS

Brewers hold off the Dodgers to force Game 7 of the NLCS

And this time, the Milwaukee Brewers left-hander figures to seeing more than one batter in his next start in the NL Championship Series. Clayton Kershaw helped his own cause by walking twice and scoring a run.

They wasted no time in Game 6, unloading two-dozen innings' worth of frustration in one frame against Dodgers lefty Hyun-jin Ryu.

Milwaukee's fearsome bullpen has been responsible for 14 of the Dodgers' 16 runs in the series, and 12 of those have come in the sixth inning or later. Game 6 of the NLCS will take place Friday at Milwaukee, with Game 7 on Saturday, if necessary. Powered by those early-game RBI, as well as masterful performances from Wade Miley, Corey Knebel, and Corbin Burnes, the club surged to a 7-2 win to pull even with the Dodgers and force a Game 7 tiebreaker. He struck out nine, all on breaking pitches, and walked two. He's got a long history of short-rest appearances in the postseason, so he could be a relief option for Roberts.

In a tense game, the benches cleared in the 10th inning when Machado grounded out and his feet tangled with Jesus Aguilar at first base. "But when you see guys do certain things out on the field to relay certain signs to hitters, then you know you've got to make things a little bit more tricky or complex". "Maybe I threw some more curveballs today than I did in Game 1".

The three-time NL Cy Young Award victor pitched in and out of trouble in the third, when the Brewers loaded the bases and scored their lone run. In the bottom of the first inning, Ryu allowed a leadoff single to Lorenzo Cain, followed by a four-pitch walk to Ryan Braun. Kenley Jansen, the Dodgers' third pitcher of the ninth, came in for the last two outs and the save.

Brewers star Christian Yelich, who almost won the NL Triple Crown this season, was hitless in four at-bats. He is 3 for 20 without an RBI in the NLCS. "It's more of still loving David's at-bat quality and like him against Miley and just being able to see him a couple of times, depending on how the game goes", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts explained of the decision.

And while the Brewers' relievers have a 3.74 ERA in the series, Milwaukee's problem has not been pitching.

But in the sixth, Woodruff allowed Justin Turner's leadoff single and hit Manny Machado.

Kershaw has struggled in the postseason during his career, with his numbers never matching his excellence during the regular season. The Dodgers are 4-1 all-time when playing winner-take-all games on the road, the latest being Game 5 of the 2016 NL Division Series against the Washington Nationals, which ended victoriously. And it paid off: Knebel threw a scoreless sixth to reward his skipper's decision; the shaky Jeremy Jeffress tossed a crisp and flawless seventh; and righty Corbin Burnes worked the final two frames to finish it. They lulled their way to a deflating loss in Game 3, but outlasted the Brewers in a thrilling, 13-inning Game 4 and rode Kershaw's dominance to a crucial Game 5 victory. Ryu pitched seven shutout innings in Game 1 of the NLDS against Atlanta, allowing four hits and striking out eight.
