I think it's Wade Miley on short rest? Dammit, give me a tough guy bull dog like Miley over a shrinking violet like Kershaw. Take heart Brewers fans! Just watch..

What a time for those 800 hours of free AOL I got from that CD they mailed me to finally run out!

Haha, who else but Manny with a couple of hustle plays for the winner.

Bellinger should get a double sided Topps Now card tomorrow with the catch and the hit.

3 games for the NL Pennant.

Good night, fellas.

Dodgers are also lucky Yelich threw a rainbow instead of a laser.

Ok, now, good night. It's almost midnight, even out here.

Ehh, Yelich doesn't have a great arm. I was surprised it was that close at the plate.

Craig Counsell said they wanted to get Bellinger to expand his strike zone. Thought they could get him to chase. If Grandal had come to the plate, he would've been walked.

The Brewers have bounced back from adversity so well all year, lets hope they do one more time later today! If not, that's why they call it home field advantage, they took one up here, we took one out West and no matter what there is more baseball to be played at what will be a rocking Miller Park this weekend. On a side note, I can't express how happy I am that the Brewers did not trade for that POS Machado..As the MVP said it, "It's a dirty play by a dirty player. I have a lot of respect for him as a player, but you can't respect someone who plays the game like that."

What a series... Tough two losses for the Brewers but let's hope we can take this one today and bring that momentum back to Miller Park.

In theory this would swing momentum back to the Dodgers- Walkoff win, made the Brewers use a ton of pitchers, etc. But they've yet to do anything this series to make me think they'll capitalize on that momentum

At least we have a series and not a sweep. Best of 3 for the NL crown. Can Kershaw get the playoff win?

They should.

This was not a baseball play or an extension of a baseball play. Over sliding a base, breaking up a double play, running over the catcher to get home or have him drop the ball...all baseball plays that baseball is policing.

This was not.

Should have been kicked out last night. Whatever punishment, if any, needs to happen in this postseason.

IMO suspend him for tonight's game. Which he probably would appeal to play but then guess what hearing is Thursday which he losses and sit's out game 6.

You guys want a player suspended for a play like that but hitting each other with baseballs at 90-100 mph is ok? You guys are silly

Never going to happen for as high caliber as a player he is in the NLCS. Some of the moves lately have been pretty bad, but not even close to the point of where the MLB would suspend him for a playoff game

Torre said he will review it.

Counsell was asked if Machado just plays hard. A: "I don't think he's playing all that hard."

But Aguilar basically punching in his tag attempts on pickoffs is ok with you guys.

Don't hold your breath.
If Aguilar had been injured or something, you might have an argument but in this case, no harm no foul.
