Clayton Kershaw limited the Brewers to one run in seven innings and struck out nine as the Dodgers won 5-2 on Wednesday to take a 3-2 lead in the NLCS.

Kershaw nearly came out after five, but the Dodgers opted to leave him in to bat after Austin Barnes singled in a run to tie the game at 1-1. Kershaw did some of his best work afterwards, and departed a 5-1 game after walking and scoring a run in the bottom of the seventh. It was a big rebound for him after he gave up five runs -- four earned -- over three-plus innings in a Game 1 loss.

Yasiel Puig had an RBI single and a double off the bench Wednesday against the Brewers.

Puig didn't start with the Brewers initially using Wade Miley, and he also didn't enter immediately after Brandon Woodruff came on; the Dodgers waited until the sixth to have him bat for Enrique Hernandez. The move paid off, and Puig is now 7-for-22 with five walks in the postseason.

Major League Baseball has fined Manny Machado an undisclosed amount for the way he ran into Jesus Aguilar in Game 4 of the NLCS on Tuesday.

Machado appeared to intentionally drag his left foot across Aguilar's right leg at first base following a routine groundout in the bottom of the 10th inning, and the resulting argument set off a short-lived benches-clearing dustup. A number of Brewers expressed anger about the play after the game, and there could very well be some kind of carryover into Game 5 of the NLCS on Wednesday. Machado will not be suspended by MLB for the act.

Cody Bellinger is batting leadoff for the Dodgers in NLCS Game 5 on Wednesday versus the Brewers.

Bellinger came off the bench in Game 4 and singled off Josh Hader in the bottom of the eighth inning before walking it off in the bottom of the 13th. He also made a tremendous diving catch in the outfield in the top of the 10th. Here is the full NLCS Game 5 lineup for Los Angeles: Cody Bellinger CF, Justin Turner 3B, David Freese 1B, Manny Machado SS, Max Muncy 2B, Chris Taylor LF, Enrique Hernandez RF, Austin Barnes C, Clayton Kershaw SP.

Julio Urias earned the win in the Dodgers' extra-innings defeat of the Brewers in Game 4 of the NLCS on Tuesday.

Urias pitched around a one-out single by Ryan Braun for a scoreless top of the 13th inning, and the Dodgers would then walk it off in the bottom of that frame. The 22-year-old left-hander was a surprise addition to the team's NLCS roster after missing much of the 2018 season while recovering from major shoulder surgery. He could be a big weapon out of the Los Angeles bullpen moving forward.

Manny Machado scored the winning run Tuesday in the Dodgers' NLCS Game 4 victory over the Brewers.

Machado reached on a single to left field in the bottom of the 13th inning and raced to second base on a Junior Guerra wild pitch before scoring on Cody Bellinger's walk-off RBI single. But his night might most be remembered by a dirty play at first base, in which Machado appeared to intentionally drag his left foot across Jesus Aguilar's leg. The two players later hugged it out, by MLB may look into the incident and issue some form of punishment -- likely a fine.
Oct 17 - 2:42 AM

Rich Hill tossed five innings of one-run ball in the Dodgers' NLCS Game 4 win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

Hill's night ended well before this one was decided in the bottom of the 13th. He issued three walks but gave up only three hits and struck out six before giving way to a Dodgers bullpen that rattled off eight scoreless frames. The win went to Julio Urias, who was a surprise addition to the Dodgers' NLCS roster. This best-of-seven series is all tied up at 2-2.
Oct 17 - 2:36 AM

Cody Bellinger hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 13th inning as the Dodgers beat the Brewers 2-1 in Game 4 of the NLCS on Tuesday.

Bellinger finally put an end to the five-and-a-half hour affair with a poke through the right side of the infield that scored Manny Machado from second base. Bellinger, who came off the bench in the bottom of the sixth, also managed a hit off tough Brewers left-hander Josh Hader in the bottom of the eighth and made a sensational diving catch in right field in the top of the 10th. He is now 3-for-25 in the 2018 postseason.
Oct 17 - 2:32 AM

Brian Dozier will start at second base and hit fifth in Game 4 of the NLCS on Tuesday versus the Brewers.

It's the first start of the playoffs for Dozier, who struggled mightily down the final stretch of the regular season. Enrique Hernandez is in center field and David Freese is at third base, with Cody Bellinger riding the pine against Brewers left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Here is the full Game 4 lineup for the host Dodgers: Chris Taylor LF, Justin Turner 3B, David Freese 1B, Manny Machado SS, Brian Dozier 2B, Enrique Hernandez CF, Yasiel Puig RF, Austin Barnes C, Rich Hill SP.
Oct 16 - 5:42 PM

Walker Buehler fanned eight while being charged with four runs over seven innings Monday in the Dodgers’ NLCS Game 3 loss to the Brewers.

Buehler issued a one-out walk to Christian Yelich in the first inning and then Ryan Braun made him pay for a hanging breaking ball with an RBI double into the corner. The rookie right-hander was untouchable for the next four frames before Travis Shaw stung one for a two-out triple in the sixth (although it was misplayed by Cody Bellinger) and then scored on a wild pitch (another ball that Yasmani Grandal was unable to block). Buehler came back out for the seventh and gave up an Erik Kratz double and Orlando Arcia two-run homer. The Dodgers will turn to Rich Hill in Game 4 as they attempt to avoid falling into a 3-1 hole.
Oct 15 - 11:30 PM

Austin Barnes will start at catcher for the Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLCS on Tuesday.

Yasmani Grandal had another nightmarish showing in Game 3 on Monday, getting charged with a passed ball and also failing to corral another ball in the dirt when a run scored on a wild pitch. He also struck out with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. Barnes went 0-for-3 but drew a bases-loaded walk in Game 2.
Oct 15 - 11:24 PM

Manny Machado reached base three times in Monday's loss to the Brewers.

Machado singled in the second inning and then doubled in the ninth as the Dodgers initially looked like they might rally. He had two of his team's five hits on the night. Machado also drew a walk in the fourth but then was called out for runner's interference when he grabbed Orlando Arcia's leg while sliding into second base, resulting in a double play. The impending free agent has put together a big postseason so far.
Oct 15 - 11:14 PM

Joc Pederson is starting in left field and batting leadoff for the Dodgers in Monday's NLCS Game 3 against the Brewers.

Pederson didn't start either of the first two games with the Brewers going with lefties, but he's in there versus Jhoulys Chacin. Max Muncy is also starting after coming off the bench in Games 1 and 2. The Dodgers' full lineup looks like this: Pederson LF, Muncy 1B, Justin Turner 3B, Manny Machado SS, Cody Bellinger CF, Yasiel Puig RF, Yasmani Grandal C, Enrique Hernandez 2B, Walker Buehler P.
Oct 15 - 4:18 PM

Dodgers' manager Dave Roberts announced Sunday that Yasmani Grandal will start behind the plate for Game 3 of the NLCS against the Brewers.

Grandal had about as bad of a Game 1 as humanly possible, with a pair of errors and two passed balls in a losing effort. He then pinch-hit in Game 2 with the bases loaded and the Dodgers trailing by a run, where he grounded into a double play in which he hilariously slid feet-first into first base. Still, Roberts has faith in his starting backstop, and he'll be back there in a pivotal Game 3 to catch for Walker Buehler.
Oct 14 - 6:23 PM

Justin Turner smashed a go-ahead two-run homer off of Jeremy Jeffress in the eighth inning on Saturday, propelling the Dodgers to a 4-3 victory over the Brewers in Game 2 of the NLCS.

The Dodgers looked destined to head back to Los Angeles facing an 0-2 deficit in the series, until they rallied late. After pushing a pair of runs across in the seventh inning to trim the deficit to one run, Chris Taylor led off the eighth with an infield single. Turner then turned on a 2-0 offering and pulverized it into the seats in left field, stunning the home faithful at Miller Park. Turner finished the day 2-for-4 and is now slashing .304/.407/.478 with one homer and three RBI in the postseason.
