Yasmani Grandal's defensive shortcomings and incessant postseason strikeouts forced the Dodgers to start Barnes in back-to-back games in the National League Championship Series.

Game 5 opened with a twist as Milwaukee left-handed starter Wade Miley walked the first batter he faced, Cody Bellinger, and then was replaced by right-hander Brandon Woodruff.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw (22) throws in the second inning against the Milwaukee Brewers in game four of the 2018 NLCS playoff baseball series at Dodger Stadium.

It was already Wednesday morning in Wisconsin as Bellinger grounded a 3-2 pitch from Junior Guerra into right field, scoring Manny Machado, who slid home and touched the plate with his left hand to beat the tag and end a thriller that took 5 hours, 15 minutes.

"There's a bunch of guys we need offense from", Milwaukee manager Craig Counsel said.

Game 5 of the NLCS, meanwhile, is on FOX Sports 1.

"It was a little bit different to try to get mentally prepared to go out and face one hitter", Miley said.

The Dodgers' offence broke loose with five runs over the fifth, sixth and seventh innings that had the sellout crowd of 54,502 on its feet whipping blue towels and cheering loudly.

It was a rough one in Los Angeles on Monday night. 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.

Dodgers: The Dodgers come into this game with the momentum and it's not because they have necessarily been out-playing Milwaukee, but simply because they were the team to walk away with the win after a 15-inning marathon game. The Dodgers are 2-0 coming off a loss this postseason. "And putting everything else on the back burner as best I possibly can". 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.

The Brewers' Curtis Granderson had a pinch-hit RBI double in the ninth inning off Ryan Madson. Now you've got a guy on third with no outs. Repeated over and over and over again, you're just a dirty player.

Milwaukee had gone scoreless over the final eight innings Tuesday and the first two innings Wednesday.
