The Los Angeles Dodgers came up empty against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series, but after rallying to within a run in the ninth inning, the Dodgers are ready to get back to work in Game 2 on Saturday afternoon at Miller Park.
Wade Miley took a shutout into the sixth inning, and Orlando Arcia and Travis Shaw hit solo homers, giving the Brewers a 3-0 lead and putting them nine outs away from a two-game home sweep to begin the best-of-7 series.

Turner, Taylor and Joc Pederson had two hits apiece for the Dodgers, who also earned a split in two road games at Atlanta en route to advancing through the NL Division Series.
"We know we're not going to get a ton of opportunities" against Kershaw and Dodgers starting pitching, outfielder Ryan Braun said. The Dodgers went on to lose the game 6-5. Fielder said Counsell helped him a lot when they played together in Milwaukee.
Kershaw was charged with five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks over three-plus innings in Game 1 of the NLCS against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Saudi Arabia vows to retaliate
A bone saw was used to dismember Khashoggi's body and it was placed in handheld cases and transported back to Saudi Arabia. Describing the disappearance as a "terrible thing", Trump said the U.S. would find out what happened to Khashoggi.
"We were in really good shape with the effort that Wade gave us", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. That includes his two-run single in the eighth-inning in NLCS Game 1. "He knows what he needs to do to win games and that's all that matters. And then the sacrifice is we're losing a baserunner, a defender, and we're losing a hitter".
"I knew he could swing the bat a little bit, for sure", Kershaw said.
He was 1-for-4 in the Dodgers Game 163 win against the Colorado Rockies, and hit just.176 during the NLDS. As long as the Dodger defense backs up Ryu today and the Dodgers offense can get to Miley, we should be looking at a best of five series after today.
Price has started a postseason game in eight of the past 10 seasons, but his team has advanced in only one of the playoff series he has been involved in since he pitched so well as a rookie reliever in the 2008 ALCS and World Series for the Tampa Bay Rays. "It's been two hard-fought games, two one-run games, tying run on base in scoring position to finish each game".
"I think that that's something that to a man, I think our guys are taking it personal", manager Dave Roberts said of his relievers being overlooked.
Kershaw was chased before he could retire a batter in the fourth inning. "The errors affected the game".
