Clayton Kershaw embarrassed the Brewers' Erik Kratz with a filthy breaking ball

Gio Gonzalez to miss rest of postseason for Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers returned home Thursday evening, October 18 trailing the Los Angeles Dodgers three games to two in the NLCS.

For the first time since the Milwaukee Brewers began their incredible late-season surge, their bats went cold enough to lose.

A double by Cody Bellinger and Yasiel Puig's hustle double in the eighth were the Dodgers' only extra-base hits in a 5-2 victory that has them on the brink of a trip to the World Series for a second straight year. As it turns out, Counsell was trying to get Roberts to deploy all of his right-handed hitters to start the game, with plans to pitch Miley in game six.

So who wins Dodgers-Brewers, and what are the critical stats that have Thompson siding strongly to one side? Veteran righty Joakim Soria worked for the third time in three days and was charged with two runs while getting one out.

The Brewers suspect the Dodgers are attempting to steal their signs in the National League Championship Series. He lasted just three innings in losing the NLCS opener while giving up five runs - four earned - at Miller Park.

The three-time NL Cy Young Award victor pitched in and out of trouble in the third, when the Brewers loaded the bases and scored their lone run. Chris Taylor singled leading off, took second on shortstop Orlando Arcia's throwing error and stole third.

But the Brewers made 18 consecutive outs between the third inning and a ninth-inning mini-rally, undoing their pitching staff's resourceful performance.

The Brewers reportedly suspect the Dodgers of sending an employee around the stadium to relay stolen signals. He said he was "really frustrated" following a 4-0 loss to the Brewers on Monday night.

After Ryan Braun walked two batters after Cain's RBI double, Kershaw (1-1) retired the final 13 batters he faced.

Roberts said the fans who booed struggling catcher Yasmani Grandal had a right to do so, but said hearing it "is tough".

After Wednesday's game, the series shifts back to Milwaukee for Game 6 on Friday.

Among those who have logged at least 1,500 innings for the Dodgers, he ranks second to Jeff Pfeffer - a man who pitched before the Great Depression - with a 2.39 ERA.

Milwaukee's starters have tossed just 14 innings in the NLCS, the lowest total ever through five games, according to Elias Sports Bureau. He didn't factor in the decision either time.

The Brewers don't have much time to fix their woes, but Counsell might need to contemplate more lineup changes for Game 5. Kershaw had the best postseason outing of his career in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Braves, allowing two hits over eight shutout innings.
