The Brewers will start left-hander Wade Miley, who walked Cody Bellinger to open Game 5 before getting pulled in an interesting piece of strategy by manager Craig Counsell.

The Dodgers and Brewers played for more than five hours in Game 4 on Tuesday before Cody Bellinger's RBI single in the 13th inning scored Manny Machado from second base and gave L.A. a 2-1 victory and tied the National League Championship Series at two-apiece. Barnes waited out a first-pitch strike from the Brewers' Brandon Woodruff, then reached for another slider to shoot a single up the middle to score Chris Taylor from third base. Domingo Santana contributed an RBI pinch-hit double. Junior Guerra took the loss in relief as he surrendered one earned run on two hits with four strikeouts and no walks over 3 2/3 innings.

"I was trying to get over him and hit his foot", Machado said. "Doesn't really matter how you get here, but thankful that we are here now for sure".

Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw fields the ball during the sixth inning against Milwaukee. Miley is scheduled to start Game 6 on Friday.

"We all know Kike is very emotional", Roberts said before Game 4.

The Dodgers last World Series victory came in 1988, buoyed by Kirk Gibson's game-winning home run that has remained a staple of baseball lore in the three decades that have passed. The Crew was up 1-0 at that point. "Honestly, I was surprised that they were throwing to me, I thought they would pitch around me and get me to swing".

‘Oh, we fighting’: Mayweather ‘looking at 9-figure payday’ for Khabib bout
Mayweather (50-0) retired from boxing in August 2017, immediately following a lucrative contest against UFC star Conor McGregor. I'm the A-side, you call me out you come into my world". "I'm my own boss, so I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end".

Justin Turner drove in Clayton Kershaw with an RBI single in the 7th inning to make it 4-1 Dodgers.

The best-of-seven NLCS is now tied 2-2 with Game 5 on Wednesday afternoon at Dodger Stadium.

"To go back to Milwaukee up 3-2 as opposed to being down 3-2 is huge for us", Kershaw said.

Pitching in 82-degree sunshine, Kershaw was well-rested and masterful in allowing one run and three hits over seven.

Kershaw says he's grateful and that it's been a "great" run during his time in Los Angeles. He issued one walk and struck out eight. Los Angeles has to end their trend of leaving runners in scoring position if it wants to win another game in this series. "Not just because of the fans, but because of how we were playing the game ..."

Milwaukee's Jhoulys Chacin pitched 5 1/3 scoreless innings, and the Brewers' bullpen snuffed out a last-ditch, ninth-inning Los Angeles rally to secure the result.
