A 3.66 second-half ERA was the fourth-best in the National League. He was outstanding his last time out, scattering three hits and a walk in 4 2/3 scoreless innings last Sunday as the Brewers wrapped up a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies in the NL Division Series at Coors Field.

"You won't see Josh (Hader) tomorrow, for sure", Counsell said. All three relievers are capable of closing.

"I thought it was going to be a lot different", Knebel said Thursday of the playoffs. That's all it is.

When it comes to the Dodgers pitching, though, the team made some surprising decisions when it comes to the NLCS. The strategy at the plate doesn't change, either, just because Milwaukee's relievers are so good.

"It's intense baseball games, man", Jeffress said.

Clayton Kershaw gave up five runs over three innings to take the loss for L.A. The Dodgers rallied for three runs in the eighth and another in the ninth before the rally fell short.

We've assembled a crew of our own here at Midwest Communications, more like a motley crew though, to talk Brewers baseball each weekday morning for as long as the Milwaukee Brewers remain in the postseason. The Dodgers' bullpen is in much better shape and Ryu has been having a fantastic stretch on the mound.

Pressure in the NLCS? The Brewers will need Wade Miley to go deep in this game, but the Dodgers offense should be able to figure him out.

"You want to stay out there, but that's the route we've taken all year", Miley told reporters. Cody Bellinger will begin Saturday's game on the bench, but Roberts said he will enter at some point. He is 1 for 8 with two walks in the first two games and hit into a game-ending groundout with the tying run in scoring position on Saturday. The Dodgers used 14, while the Brewers went through 13.

Game 6* - Friday, 5:30 p.m.: Dodgers (TBA) at Milwaukee (TBA).

The Milwaukee Brewers were able to win the series opener, but they had to burn out their bullpen to get the job done. Ryan Braun hit a soft grounder to shortstop Manny Machado, who only had a play at first base, and that allowed Miley to sprint home to make it 2-0 Milwaukee. Justin Turner - among the sport's hottest hitters since the start of August, including in a first-round playoff series at the start of October - went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts and one error in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series, becoming the second player to put together such a performance in the postseason.

Hyun-Jin Ryu gets the nod for Los Angeles after an impressive showing in Game 1 of the NLDS.

An 11-year veteran, Gonzalez is 4-1 with a 1.89 ERA in six career starts against the Dodgers.
