Game 5 opened with a twist as Milwaukee left-handed starter Wade Miley walked the first batter he faced, Cody Bellinger, and then was replaced by right-hander Brandon Woodruff.

The hypothesis is that the person in question was relaying Brewers pitchers' sequences to Dodgers players and staff to give their baserunners an advantage.

Counsell has used his bullpen liberally and unconventionally throughout the Brewers' remarkable season, and this particular gambit yielded mixed results.

To summarize: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts set his Game 5 lineup for a left-handed pitcher. Whether or not that's the strategy again in Game 6 remains to be seen. "Maybe I threw some more curveballs today than I did in Game 1", Kershaw said. They started the series with their 12th straight victory, a stretch that spanned the end of the regular season, a sweep of the Colorado Rockies in the National League Division series, and then a convincing win over the Dodgers. In his time with the Dodgers, Rich Hill has a 2.93 ERA in 40 postseason innings, effectively working as the postseason ace the Dodgers have desperately been looking for over the last few years. "One person inside the organization said that on videos of the games, a coach could be seen running from the hallway into the Dodgers' dugout whenever a runner reached second base". The Dodgers have Hyun-Jin Ryu and Walker Buehler lined up for the next two days.

"There's a bunch of guys we need offense from", Milwaukee manager Craig Counsel said.

Curtis Granderson hit an RBI double in the ninth.

Brewers star Christian Yelich, who almost won the NL Triple Crown this season, was hitless in four at-bats.

Bellinger singled home the winning run with two outs in the 13th inning of a 2-1 victory Tuesday night that lasted more than five hours.

It took the Dodgers until the fourth inning to get a hit off Woodruff, when Joc Pederson singled, and until the fifth to score a run, on an Austin Barnes RBI single that tied the game 1-1.

But his outing Wednesday almost matched what he did in Game 2 of the NL Division Series against Atlanta.

The Dodgers are 5-1 in series when they own a 3-2 lead. Kershaw allowed two hits over eight shutout innings, struck out three and walked none in the best postseason outing of his career. He started Games 2 and 3 and came off the bench in the 11th inning on Tuesday for Milwaukee.

Brewers leadoff man Lorenzo Cain went 0-for-6 with three strikeouts and is now 4-for-20 (.200) in the series.
