Woodruff then faced more traffic in the sixth inning as Justin Turner led off with a single and Machado was grazed with a pitch.

It was already Wednesday morning in Wisconsin as Bellinger grounded a 3-2 pitch from Junior Guerra into right field, scoring Manny Machado, who slid home and touched the plate with his left hand to beat the tag and end a thriller that took 5 hours, 15 minutes.

That was the Dodgers' first run since the first inning. Craig Counsell allowed starter Wade Miley to pitch to one batter (a walk to Cody Bellinger) before he removed him for Brandon Woodruff with no outs in the first inning. The NLCS will resume in Milwaukee on Friday with the Dodgers in control, following their 5-2 victory in Game 5. The Dodgers will hope that hit will get Bellinger going. "I think good players will get good offence going, and we're going to need it, and I expect it to happen". Trouble for Woodruff arose in the bottom of the fifth when Orlando Arcia's throwing error put Chris Taylor at second base with nobody out.

The Brewers had the potential go-ahead run at third in the seventh.

The Dodgers tied the game 1-all on Austin Barnes' RBI single up the middle in the fifth. Kershaw's final line, once he was lifted for Pedro Baez, included two walks and nine strikeouts that all came on either his slider or curveball. So if this was Kershaw's final home start as a Dodger, if that was really it, he turned in a performance worth remembering.

Aguilar left his foot on the base for a moment after Machado was already out, and the star shortstop appeared to show his displeasure by bringing his left foot forward and kicking Aguilar on the back of the leg. Santana also had a two-run pinch single in Game 1.

Machado said the two go back to their time in the minors. Kershaw debuted with the Dodgers in 2008 and, in the decade since, has never finished a regular season with an ERA above 2.91.

While they haven't pounded the ball with the proficiency of Boston or Houston, the Brewers entered Game 4 of the NLCS leading the playoffs with a.265 team batting average. He threw 74 pitches over 5 2/3 scoreless innings Saturday in Game 2 of the NLCS, allowing two hits while striking out three and walking none. He didn't factor in the decision either time.

Dodgers: Kershaw took the loss in Game 1 against the Brewers. And, with that victory, they now hold a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven National League Champion Series, putting them one win away from a return to the World Series, giving them a chance to get there in Game 6 at Miller Park in Milwaukee on Friday night.
