Turner homers as Dodgers level NLCS with Brewers

Dodgers vs. Brewers by the numbers Three stats that could determine the NLCS winner

On the 30th anniversary of Kirk Gibson's game-winning homer against Oakland in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series, the Dodgers couldn't conjure up any drama.

The top of the batting order remains the same, with Lorenzo Cain, Christian Yelich, Ryan Braun and Jesus Aguilar making up the top four spots of the Brewers lineup.

"The catcher's interference, that was something that very freak thing", Roberts said.

"I knew he could swing the bat a little bit, for sure", Kershaw said.

Justin Turner kept his bat pointed high above his head because he earned the right to, because he had just crushed a baseball that flew into the second deck and woke up a Los Angeles Dodgers dugout that, moments before, was brimming with blank stares. He assigned Price to pitch Game 2 of the ALCS, which would also put him in position for what could be a very key Game 6.

They were buzzing just to be on the sofa but then when Ellen shouted their idol Zlatan to come out, their faces lit up completely. Ake was the last member of the team to be saved, with everyone out on July 10.

He was 1-for-4 in the Dodgers Game 163 win against the Colorado Rockies, and hit just.176 during the NLDS.

Travis Shaw's solo blast in the bottom of the sixth inning off new Dodgers pitcher, Alex Woods, made it 3-0 for the Brewers. That run was charged to Ryu. The last meeting came more than five years ago when he held the Brewers to two runs in 7 1/3 innings of a 9-2 Dodgers victory on May 22, 2013. He had a 4.65 ERA in 10 career appearances, including seven starts, going into Friday.

"Obviously, I would have to prepare accordingly, but I think I'm ready to go".

Jeffress also struggled in Game 1, allowing two hits while only recording one out.

Though the Sox took care of business in their four-game ALDS series against the Yankees and have a starting rotation full of former Cy Young Award winners, their fortunes might depend on whether David Price can break out of a long and mystifying postseason slump. If the birth of his daughter would have prompted him to go on the paternity list, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he could have deployed added outfielder Andrew Toles or second baseman Chase Utley to the active roster and potentially inserted them in the lineup. But it got dicey in the ninth as Jeffress loaded the bases before recording the final two outs. We're in good shape tomorrow. "We got possibilities, a lot of possibilities for tomorrow, so good stuff".
