Kershaw's strong outing lifts Dodgers to 3-2 NLCS lead

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

But, Los Angeles needs wins, they are trying to get to the World Series ad ever base runner matters.

Milwaukee starter Gio Gonzalez figured to have a brief outing Tuesday, as the Brewers planned to lean on their bullpen, but his appearance was even shorter than expected. The Dodgers are 4-8 when tied 2-2 in a best- of-seven series, the Brewers are 0-2.

Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Cody Bellinger (35) hits an RBI single to defeat the Milwaukee Brewers in the thirteenth inning in game four of the 2018 NLCS playoff baseball series at Dodger Stadium.

Enrique Hernandez was none too pleased on how the Dodgers played during the 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, nor with how the fan base acted throughout the defeat.

The contact continued when Turner drove in an insurance run on a line-drive single to center field, and Brian Dozier's swinging bunt scored Bellinger to extend the Dodgers' lead to a decided 5-1.

The Dodgers are one win away from their second straight National League pennant after they took down the Brewers 5-2 in Game 5 of the NLCS Wednesday.

The Brewers had a prime opportunity to take a commanding 3-1 series lead, but couldn't get it done against countless Dodgers relievers.

Has Diddy Split From Longterm Girlfriend Cassie?
Cassie and Diddy have split after 11 years together. " The decision was amicable and they remain friends ". Meanwhile, Cassie has been unusually quiet about her relationship and has since unfollowed his accounts.

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). Max Muncy single to left field, sending Manny Machado to second and scoring Justin Turner.

There was the short-term view heading into Game 5, that one team would push in front, that the other would be nudged to the edge of elimination, that a whole lot rested on Kershaw's ability to shake past postseason failures and toss his best game.

In the 10th, Ryan Braun singled with two outs and stole second against Jansen, who struck out Jesus Aguilar. The Dodgers have won three out of four games at home during the playoffs compared to a 2-2 record on the road.

The Brewers struck first in the third inning when Kershaw walked Woodruff to put runners on first and second.

Woodruff, the reliever who homered against Kershaw in Game 1, walked following Arcia's one-out single to begin the rally. He will start Game 6. "One time is an accident".

The Dodgers didn't necessarily need a home run to get them out of their rut - they just needed to get someone on base and maybe, just maybe, they could find a way to advance him home.

The Dodgers' defence also contributed to the woes with several nifty plays, including Cody Bellinger's full-stretch, diving catch of Cain's sinking liner leading off the 10th.
