Wade Miley will start for the Brewers in NLCS Game 5 on Wednesday on short rest.

Manager Craig Counsell hasn't announced a Game 4 starter yet, but he did say he'll be handing the ball to Miley in Game 5 on three days' rest. The left-hander needed just 74 pitches to get through 5 2/3 scoreless innings in Game 2. The Brewers ultimately figure to go with an "opener" for Game 4 and Counsell is just waiting to see who will be available.

Travis Shaw is starting at second base and batting cleanup for the Brewers in Monday's NLCS Game 3 versus the Dodgers.

Shaw didn't start Game 1 against Clayton Kershaw but has been in the lineup for the next two contests. The Brewers' full lineup is as follows: Lorenzo Cain CF, Christian Yelich RF, Ryan Braun LF, Shaw 2B, Jesus Aguilar 1B, Mike Moustakas 3B, Erik Kratz C, Orlando Arcia SS, Jhoulys Chacin P.

Orlando Arcia broke a scoreless tie with a solo homer in the fifth inning on Saturday, but the Brewers couldn't hold off a late charge from the Dodgers as they dropped Game 2 of the NLCS.

It snapped a string of 12 consecutive victories for the Brewers dating back to September 23. Arcia's dramatic go-ahead shot off of Hyun-Jin Ryu in the fifth inning was his lone hit in four at-bats on the contest. He's hitting .250/.250/.625 with a pair of solo home runs during the postseason.

Travis Shaw clubbed a solo home run on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Brewers to victory over the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLCS.

Shaw was held out of the starting lineup in Game 1 on Friday due to his struggles against left-handed pitching, but he was back in there on Saturday despite Hyun-Jin Ryu being on the hill for the Dodgers. Shaw had hit just two of his 32 home runs during the regular season off of left-handed pitching, but squared up a 91 mph fastball from Alex Wood in the sixth inning to extend the Brewers' lead to 3-0. Unfortunately, that would wind up being the extent of their offense, and the Dodgers would rally for four runs to tie the series up at a game apiece. Shaw finished the afternoon 1-for-4.

Wade Miley did it all in a tough-luck no-decision against the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLCS, firing 5 2/3 innings of two-hit shutout baseball, while going 2-for-2 with a double and a run scored at the dish.

Miley racked up three strikeouts in the ballgame and didn't walk a batter. He surrendered a one-out single to Justin Turner in the first inning, then retired 16 hitters in a row before allowing a two-out single to Chris Taylor in the sixth, his final batter. He laced a double down the left field line in his first at-bat, then followed Orlando Arcia's fifth inning homer with a single and eventually came around to score on a fielder's choice, putting the Brewers up 2-0. Unfortunately for him and for the Brewers, the Dodgers were able to rally against the bullpen and secure a victory.

Travis Shaw will take over at second base as the Brewers face off against Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday.

Hernan Perez started at the keystone in Friday's Game 1 victory but will watch from the dugout in this one. Eric Kratz draws the start behind the plate in place of Manny Pina. Wade Miley will toe the rubber as the Brewers' initial "out-getter" and will likely only go through the Dodger lineup one time if manager Craig Counsell continues with the game plan that has led to a 12-game winning streak. The full batting order is: CF Lorenzo Cain, RF Christian Yelich, LF Ryan Braun, 1B Jesus Aguilar, 3B Mike Moustakas, 2B Travis Shaw, C Erik Kratz, SS Orlando Arcia and P Wade Miley.

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored as the Brewers held on to beat the Dodgers 6-5 in Game 1 of the NLCS on Friday evening in Milwaukee.

Cain singled and came around to score the go-ahead run in the third inning on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Hernan Perez in the third inning. He nearly had himself a four-hit night, though his last one was taken off the board in the ninth inning and ruled an error on third baseman Justin Turner. Cain had been just 1-for-12 (.083) for the postseason prior to Friday's game.
Oct 13 - 12:17 AM

Jesus Aguilar clubbed his second home run of the postseason as the Brewers topped the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS on Friday night.

It's the 12th consecutive victory for the Brewers. The solo shot off of Julio Urias in the seventh inning put the cherry on top for the Brewers, who took the lead in the third inning and never looked back. Aguilar also was part of an interesting play earlier in the game, where he lined out to David Freese, but was awarded first base due to catcher's interference as his bat made contact with the glove of Yasmani Grandal.
Oct 13 - 12:17 AM

Domingo Santana made the most of his lone at-bat on Friday, delivering a pinch-hit two-run single as the Brewers topped the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS.

Santana had big shoes to fill, coming on to hit for Brandon Woodruff in the fourth inning after the reliever had already taken Clayton Kershaw deep in the contest. He lined the first pitch that he saw from Kershaw into left field for a two-run single. Santana then swiped second base and came around to score on a single by Ryan Braun. He's proving to be a very valuable weapon off of the bench for the Brewers in the postseason.
Oct 13 - 12:16 AM

Corey Knebel walked a tightrope in the ninth inning on Friday, but was able to escape with the lead intact, saving the first game of the NLCS against the Dodgers.

Knebel came on with a two-run lead in the ninth inning and retired the first two hitters rather easily before issuing a two-out walk to Joc Pederson. Chris Taylor then blasted a run-scoring triple to right center on a ball that popped out of the glove of Lorenzo Cain, putting the tying run 90 feet away. The right-hander was able to battle back though, striking out Justin Turner to end the ballgame.
Oct 13 - 12:16 AM

Josh Hader played a pivotal role out of the Brewers' bullpen in their victory over the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS on Friday, allowing just two hits while striking out four over three scoreless innings.

Hader was the third pitcher called upon by Brewers' manager Craig Counsell in this one, taking over in the fifth inning with the Brewers holding a 5-1 lead. The left-hander threw a career-high 46 pitches in the game, a remarkable 34 of them for strikes in the dominant performance. He'll likely be unavailable for Game 2 on Saturday.
Oct 13 - 12:16 AM

Brandon Woodruff gave the Brewers a major jolt on Friday, crushing a game-tying solo homer off of Clayton Kershaw in the third inning of Game 1 of the NLCS.

Woodruff came on to pitch the third inning after Gio Gonzalez had gotten the first six outs of the game. After retiring the Dodgers in order in the third inning, Woodruff was left in the game to hit to begin the third inning. That's when he tattooed a Kershaw offering for a 407-foot blast to center field to tie the game at 1-1. He remained in the game in the fourth inning, where he struck out the heart of the Dodgers order in succession. He became just the third relief pitcher to homer in MLB postseason history. He was also the first left-handed hitting pitcher to ever homer off of a left-handed pitcher during a playoff game.
Oct 13 - 12:16 AM

Gio Gonzalez lasted just two innings in Game 1 of the NLCS on Friday, giving up one run on one hit in a no-decision against the Dodgers.

Brewers' manager Craig Counsell tabbed Gonzalez as his first "out-getter" rather than a true starter heading into the game, and he didn't stick with him for long. Aside from a solo homer by Manny Machado to begin the second inning, Gonzalez was perfect, throwing 17 of his 32 pitches for strikes. Since he didn't work very deep into the game, he'll presumably be available as early as Game 3 as another potential bullpen option for the Brewers.
Oct 13 - 12:16 AM

Hernan Perez is starting at second base and batting fifth in Friday's NLCS Game 1 against he Dodgers.

With the Dodgers throwing left-hander Clayton Kershaw, Perez is at the keystone and Travis Shaw is on the bench. The Brewers' full lineup looks like this: Lorenzo Cain CF, Christian Yelich RF, Ryan Braun LF, Jesus Aguilar 1B, Perez 2B, Mike Moustakas 3B, Manny Pina C, Orlando Arcia SS, Gio Gonzalez P.
Oct 12 - 3:37 PM

The Brewers have added Xavier Cedeno to their NLCS roster.

The Brewers are going with 12 pitchers this round after carrying 11 in the NLDS. Keon Broxton has been removed from the roster.
