Clayton Kershaw embarrassed the Brewers' Erik Kratz with a filthy breaking ball

Yasmani Grandal possible Mets target benched by Dodgers

Yasmani Grandal possible Mets target benched by Dodgers

Max Muncy, who was in the lineup because Los Angeles really didn't have another choice, drove in the go-ahead run.

Clayton Kershaw did not disappoint, and the Dodgers faithful made themselves heard from start to finish. The lefty retired his last 13 batters and blanked Milwaukee following Lorenzo Cain's RBI double in the top of the second. Can Los Angeles get a better start out of Clayton Kershaw at home today to win a pivotal Game 5? He allowed one earned run in seven innings in Game 5. The left-hander struck out six and walked three.

Kershaw was well-rested and masterful in allowing one run and three hits over seven. Austin Barnes ended the game 1-for-4 plus a walk. "What matters is just finding a way to get the big hit". He struck out nine, all on breaking pitches, and walked two.

Don't believe us? Kershaw has registered 12 quality starts (6 IP, 3 ER or fewer) in 22 career postseason opportunities. "Guys on the bench that aren't playing that day, maybe we need to do a better job of staying vocal and making sure these guys know we're behind them and supporting them".

"I have no time to think about it because we're 1 game from the World Series", Kasten told our guy.

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).

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. His goal would be to repeat his outing from Saturday at Milwaukee, when he breezed through his outing, giving up only two hits.

Muncy grounded a 1-2 pitch from Brandon Woodruff into left field, scoring Turner, who led off with a single.

Los Angeles extended the lead to 5-1 in the seventh on Turner's RBI single that scored Kershaw, who walked, and pinch-hitter Brian Dozier's RBI groundout. There were just two things the Dodgers could be sure of, two very important things, and that was that Kershaw allowed one run on three hits in a 5-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. But Kershaw still has to go out there and make the pitches, and he largely has. Now that the series has shifted to Los Angeles, the Dodgers appear to be struggling against all pitchers.

Taylor's hustle in running to first, which helped cause the error, advancing to second and then stealing third was nearly infectious, as a series of little things helped the Dodgers win a second consecutive playoff game without hitting a home run.

Milwaukee's starters have tossed just 14 innings in the NLCS, the lowest total ever through five games, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
