Milwaukee Brewers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers 10/17/18, Prediction & Odds

During the fourth inning of Wednesday's NLCS Game 5 in Los Angeles, Kershaw had the Brewers catcher way out front on a filthy 73 miles per hour curveball.

Julio Urias was chosen to NLCS roster over Scott Alexander because "we liked his pitch mix more for this series" Dave Roberts shared with the media. It's frustrating, it's part of the game of baseball though. "I don't think I'd single those two guys out, I think there's a bunch of guys we need to get going, and we will". The Dodgers scored just seven runs in their three NLCS home games and did not hit a home run. The left-hander struck out six and walked three. That was just an allegation of stealing signs in general, but the suspicion goes deeper. Max Muncy is starting at second base and hitting fifth for the Dodgers.

Fellow lefty Wade Miley (5-2, 2.57) hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any start, and he's saved some of his best work for the Dodgers.

The Dodgers now lead the series 3-2 heading into Friday night's Game 6 in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee's starters have tossed just 14 innings in the NLCS, the lowest total ever through five games, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

They added two more in the sixth, chasing tired Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff in the process.

"Look, they're trying to get matchups, we're trying to get matchups, " Counsell said.

After Wednesday's game, the series shifts back to Milwaukee for Game 6 on Friday. Yasiel Puig singled to center with two outs, bringing home Manny Machado after he was hit by a pitch from Corbin Burnes.

Mega Millions, Powerball jackpots worth over $860 million
Mega Millions tickets cost $2 per play and there are a total of nine ways to win a prize, ranging from the jackpot down to $2. The Mega Millions jackpot climbs to $654 million after no one won the $548 million in Friday's drawing.

So who wins Dodgers-Brewers, and what are the critical stats that have Thompson siding strongly to one side?

Bellinger, who entered as a pinch hitter in the sixth, also made a diving catch on his belly of a ball hit by Lorenzo Cain leading off the 10th, spreading his arms out and sliding like a snow angel in right field.

Both the Brewers and Dodgers officially declined to comment to The Athletic.

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.

The Brewers' Curtis Granderson had a pinch-hit RBI double in the ninth inning off Ryan Madson.

The Dodgers jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a first-inning RBI single from Brian Dozier, who was making his first start of the postseason.

The Dodgers said tickets were still available for Game 5, which begins at 2:05 p.m. PDT.

With a few games left in the season for this team, you'd think any fan with any interest in their favorite team would at least attempt to see them battle in a pivotal game.
