Los Angeles Dodgers win Game 2 in comeback fashion

Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell speaks to reporters Sunday Oct. 14 2018 for Game 3 of the NLCS against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Los Angeles

Late in Game 2, Turner belted a 2-run homer to give the Dodgers a 4-3 lead.

"As long as we have outs left, we know we're in the game", Turner said.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

Milwaukee relief pitcher Brandon Woodruff hit a home run off Clayton Kershaw Friday night to help pave the way to a 6-5 victory over Los Angeles. Lefty slugger Max Muncy, who leads the Dodgers with 35 homers, will come off the bench. All the momentum is with the Dodgers right now. But they pieced together a seventh-inning rally to pull within one run, on an RBI single for Cody Bellinger and RBI walk for Austin Barnes, before Turner stepped to the plate in the top of the eighth. It looked like the Brewers were going to go up 2-0, but one man chose to step up to the plate and come up in the clutch.

He was charged with nine runs - eight earned - and five hits in a 21-5 rout on August 2. "Sometimes you got to defend your players", Cora said.

The Brewers batted.250 (12-for-48) against Kershaw this season, numbers that were inflated by Christian Yelich, who went 4-for-6 with a pair of home runs against Kershaw in 2018 and is 9-for-17 (.529) against him for his career. He was co-MVP of the NLCS past year with Taylor when Los Angeles made it to the World Series for the first time since 1988. Pretty soon, he was gone. As I got ready to board my plane to Boston, I got chills and goosebumps just thinking about it. Los Angeles managed to beat the Brewers four out of seven times in those meetings. But another playoff flop for its ace left-hander might be its biggest concern as it tries to cool off streaking Milwaukee.

"I thought it was going to be a lot different", Knebel said Thursday of the playoffs.

Game two of the best-of-seven series is Sunday, with Boston left-hander David Price trying to end his postseason skid against Astros righty Gerrit Cole. The Dodgers dropped to 13-13 when the three-time NL Cy Young Award victor takes the mound in the playoffs.

The 27-year-old predicted the Dodgers would win the NLCS this season. But he later threw four scoreless innings with the Dodgers, allowing only one baserunner while striking out seven batters.

The Red Sox were reportedly given a heads up about Houston by the Cleveland Indians after they had a similar situation with the Astros in the ALDS.

Kershaw glanced back with an incredulous look as Woodruff's ball soared over the wall, tying it at 1 and sending a charge through the sellout crowd of 43,615. "They're going to be like this for the rest of the postseason".

Pedro Baez, the fifth of eight Dodgers pitchers, got the win.

"I knew he could swing the bat a little bit, for sure", Kershaw said. "The only games I want to watch are the good ones and move forward and stick with what I have".

The Brewers tacked on another run in the fourth inning, scoring on a Hernan Perez sacrifice fly.

Whatever he was trying to do, it didn't work. At stake is a berth in the World Series - the Brewers first since 1982. Domingo Santana contributed a pinch-hit two-run single and scored a run. Cedeno, 31, pitched in 15 games during the regular season for Milwaukee after being acquired from the Chicago White Sox, posting a 1.13 ERA.

This was Ryu's shortest outing this year since lasting four innings against the St. Louis Cardinals on August 21.

"We gave up too many bases".

Game 2 is Saturday at Miller Park, with Wade Miley pitching for the Brewers against Hyun-Jin Ryu. "The errors affected the game". He struck out again.
