Bellinger leads off vs. Brewers in Game 5

Bellinger leads off vs. Brewers in Game 5

The moment was so nondescript that you probably missed it. "And after this one I'm not going to think about this one, either", Kershaw said. "I thought they would pitch around me and get me to swing". The caution that is required for Julio Urias does not belong on a postseason roster. And, according to the Athletic, who cited unidentified league sources, Milwaukee is suspicious Los Angeles is using video cameras to do it. Los Angeles trails the best-of-seven series 2-1. Woodruff hadn't pitched more than four innings in a game since May 16, but he was ready to go long in Game 5 after not pitching for Milwaukee since Game 1. Milwaukee is 7-3 in its last 10 home playoff games. Order was restored quickly, but the Brewers remained incensed that Machado would clip a player while running through the bag.

"It's been working out", Chrisitan Yelich said. "One time is an accident".

"You're allowed to play all your players whenever you want to". For Machado to publically say that a little extra effort on the basepaths is just not his style is pretty pathetic. "I know him really well".

"We have tickets for Saturday, so we're hoping there is a game on Saturday".

Woodruff worked 5 1/3 innings, and allowed three runs, two earned, on five hits and one walk with eight strikeouts.

"We're trying to get to the World Series", Miley said.

Curtis Granderson hit an RBI double in the ninth.

"It was huge to get there to third base, less than two outs, give us a shot to do some things", Barnes said of Taylor.

The Brewers then announced shortly after the decision that Miley would be starting Game 6. The left-hander exited in the second inning with a sprained left ankle.

The Brewers led 1-0 in the third on Lorenzo Cain's RBI double to deep center.

Hinch noted that the Brewers used reliever Dan Jennings to start a game against the Cardinals on September 24 before pulling Jennings after retiring the first batter.

Game 5 of the NLCS, meanwhile, is on FOX Sports 1. Yelich, who will likely be named National League MVP in November, is hitting.150 in the series. This was a bit of gamesmanship on the part of Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell.

"We're in a good spot, man", Counsell said. If they think its something that can help us achieve that, I'm in.

Kershaw was well-rested and masterful in allowing one run and three hits over seven.

After walking leadoff hitter Cody Bellinger and then leaving Game 5, Miley will start Game 6 in Milwaukee on Friday when the Brewers attempt to avoid elimination.
