Why The Brewers Pulled Their SP After 5 Pitches vs

Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw put his previous flop behind him and pushed the Los Angeles Dodgers forward - one victory from a return trip to the World Series. That was the catch Wednesday.

That was the Dodgers' first run since the first inning.

Just two of the Brewers' hits went for extra bases.

Miley will now start what is an elimination game for the Brewers as they trail the best-of-seven series 3-2.

The five-hour, 15-minute game was the second-longest NLCS game by time, behind Game 5 of the 1999 series between the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves which took 5:46.

In five regular-season starts with the Brewers, he had a 2.13 ERA with a 3-0 record.

"I think the most special part of that was him running on the first pitch", Turner said.

Jimmy's Cannabis will also open a store in Battlefords on Wednesday, with stores opening in Estevan and Moosomin later this year. John's, lining up outside a Tweed-branded store owned by Canopy Growth Corp., the world's most recognised cannabis producer.

L.A.'s Manny Machado is hit by a pitch during Wednesday's Game 5 of the NLCS. But, Los Angeles needs wins, they are trying to get to the World Series ad ever base runner matters.

He was facing Brewers starter Wade Miley until, suddenly, he wasn't. But Brewers Manager Craig Counsell had other plans.

Right-hander Brandon Woodruff replaced Miley and is pitching for the Brewers.

Counsell got Roberts to do this and then brought in his right-handed reliever nearly immediately.

I mean, it's Game 5! He struck out nine, all on breaking pitches, and walked two. The Crew was up 1-0 at that point.

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

On Tuesday, Gonzalez lasted just one full inning, landing awkwardly on his ankle while attempting to field a comebacker from Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig in the second. Kenley Jansen, the Dodgers' third pitcher of the ninth, came in for the last two outs and the save. Miley pointed out that he has made back-to-back starts before, though there was an All-Star break between the outings.

In the home clubhouse at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers have used two whiteboards to track their path to what would be the franchise's first title since 1988. After a Game 4 win late Tuesday, both sevens were erased for a "6". "One time is an accident". One more win needed against the Brewers, then four more after that. "Overall, it was a pretty bad game for everybody who calls themselves Dodgers". So if this was Kershaw's final home start as a Dodger, if that was really it, he turned in a performance worth remembering.
