Turner homers as Dodgers level NLCS with Brewers

Mookie Betts Clayton Kershaw George Springer

Clayton Kershaw on Friday had his shortest start of his postseason career, which is saying a lot considering how shaky he's been in the playoffs.

Justin Turner completed a rally from a 3-0 deficit with a two-run, go-ahead home run in the eighth inning Saturday night, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 4-3 win over the host Milwaukee Brewers and into a 1-1 tie in the National League Championship Series. He was lifted in the bottom of the fourth inning. Then the third baseman struck the biggest hit of the best-of-seven series, tying it at a game apiece as it swings to Los Angeles for three games starting Monday.

Former MLB All-Star Mark Mulder had a concerning observation.

He was 1-for-4 in the Dodgers Game 163 win against the Colorado Rockies, and hit just.176 during the NLDS. Woodruff pumped his right arm as the ball went out Friday night and Kershaw glanced back with an incredulous look on his face.

Monday night it was ace Jhoulys Chacin who seized the mound at Chavez Ravine and kept the crowd of 52,793 nearly silent until the Brewers bullpen got involved to close out a 4-0 victory over the Dodgers in Game 2.

They could now take comfort in this game following a more traditional script, that their offense completed a comeback, that the Brewers bullpen has not been as dominant as advertised, that they left Miller Park much like they found it at the start of the day, quiet and emptying, wondering what could possibly happen next.

Manny Machado homered and drove in three runs for Los Angeles. Woodruff threw two flawless innings and got the win.

Saudi king calls Erdogan as Khashoggi fallout widens
Prince Mohammed told Reuters a year ago that Blackstone and BlackRock Inc were planning to open offices in the kingdom. This time, however, it acknowledged for the first time that Saudi Arabia was accused of killing Mr Khashoggi.

It was the first time in postseason history that a lefty-batting pitcher went deep off a left-hander.

That ERA went up after allowing six hits and five runs - four earned - in three-plus innings. Cain single sharply into center field and then later scored on a Hernan Perez sacrifice fly. Ryu was pulled, and Ryan Braun doubled the deficit with an RBI groundout off reliever Ryan Madson.

It's not often that reliever hits a home run. He dropped to 2-5 with a 5.24 ERA in 11 career NLCS games.

Boston hosted the Astros in game one of the American League Championship Series later on Saturday.

"It's intense baseball games, man", Jeffress said.

"Just me against [Yelich]".
