Ryan Braun slid across home plate and raised his arms in sheer joy. And I feel like that's the thing that kind of makes us unique and special - we keep grinding and grinding and grinding. This placed LA in a division series matchup against the NL East champion Atlanta Braves, whom the Dodgers defeated in four games. "Tomorrow, it can be somebody else".
Prices are likely to rise if the Los Angeles Dodgers win the National League pennant, and should remain stable if the Milwaukee Brewers advance, Lawrence said. Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler faces journeyman Jhoulys Chacin, with well-rested relief ace Josh Hader looming in the bullpen for Milwaukee after a surprise day off.
"Got to get them tomorrow".
"It doesn´t matter how you get there", Kershaw said. "They went out and they won the game". "I was just trying to run hard to get to the spot". If he can do anything like that again, this could be a surprisingly low-scoring game in the high-offense environment of Miller Park.
Key team stats: The Dodgers were first in the NL and second in Major League Baseball with 235 home runs, trailing only the Yankees. The lefty fireballer provided three scoreless innings in which he allowed two base runners and struck out four. Unlike Jeffress and Knebel, Hader doesn't function as well on back to back games and having to perform in game six, could have drastically hindered him in game seven. "I don't know what would have happened if he didn't make that catch". Do what we got to do on the field. "And they gave us all we could handle".
"The first inning was loud from then on", Counsell added. Counsell pinch-hit for Chacin with two on and two out in the bottom of the second, but Jonathan Schoop grounded out to end the threat. Los Angeles' slugging percentage was third in the league (.442), and its overall 3.38 team ERA was best in the NL and second in MLB.
"It was huge to be able to answer back in the first inning after the homer", Moustakas said. Madson (1-0) earned the victory, scattering one hit and two strikeouts in 1 2/3 innings. We're sitting in a very good spot, to me, going home for Game 6. His go-ahead two-run homer early in Game 7 was all the Dodgers ended up needing to win.
Roberts used starting pitcher Rich Hill in the eighth after Kenta Maeda struggled, staying away from key reliever Pedro Baez and closer Kenley Jansen. If the ALDS win over the Yankees served as Alex Cora's coming out party, the ALCS shouldn't have told us much we didn't know about the Red Sox manager.
