NLCS Preview: Game 5 Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Dodgers

Dodgers are feeling right at home in more ways than one

Dodgers are feeling right at home in more ways than one

Defensively, Grandal allowed his third passed ball in two starts in the series and also couldn't corral Walker Buehler's sixth-inning breaking ball in the dirt, which went for the wild pitch that allowed Brewers infielder Travis Shaw to score.

The Brewers had a prime opportunity to take a commanding 3-1 series lead, but couldn't get it done against countless Dodgers relievers.

As Machado beat the throw home from Brewers right fielder Christian Yelich, Bellinger rounded first base and kept on running past the second base bag and into a vacated left field. He 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.

"I don't think we're too concerned about any other teams' comments about our players", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday before Game 5.

Of course, if Machado were having a awful postseason, it would be easier to make all of the criticism stick, but he leads all postseason hitters with nine RBIs and is tied with three other players for the home run lead (three).

The controversial play on Tuesday night harked back to that play as well as his jog through the bag in Game 2. "He feels that he'll be ready for that one", Cora said of Game 6.

Throughout the playoffs, Chris Taylor has been a hitting machine for Los Angeles, posting a slash line of.353/.450/.647. The Dodgers would have been forced to use Urias for at least one more inning and if not, it would have cost the team Hyun-Jin Ryu who has arguably been the team's best starter this season.

But the Dodgers again struggled at the plate after going 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position during a 4-0 loss in Game 3.

Ryan Braun contributed three singles in Game 4, but the rest of the lineup was dire. Jesus Aguilar went 1-for-5 with a walk. Manny Pina finished 1-for-2 with a double and two walks. Orlando Arcia was 1-for-5 and scored the lone run.

Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles Dodgers was a combined 15 for 85 in 22 postseason games. Aguilar appeared upset and the two exchanged words.

Aguilar, however, said the two talked it out after Machado singled in the 13th.

While the Milwaukee Brewers didn't shy away from calling Machado a "dirty player", the Major League Baseball doesn't believe that his actions warrant a suspension.
