Dodgers Brewers all even heading into Game 3 of the NLCS

One of those runs included a home run hit by the opposing pitcher (Brandon Woodruff).

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

More than five hours after it started, Cody Bellinger delivered a game-winning single to right field, and he still had enough energy to take the Los Angeles Dodgers' celebration all the way to left field. Whether or not that's the strategy again in Game 6 remains to be seen. Because if a dark cloud ends up hanging over the decisive game of the NLCS and L.A. reigns victorious, we've got a problem here. Those aren't the most impressive numbers by any stretch but they're still better than the Brewers, who are 5-for-35 in the series with one hit in their last 11 tries. If a Game 7 is needed, ace Jhoulys Chacin will get the ball.

"We're hoping for a win (Friday) night", Steldt said. The three-time Cy Young Award victor carried a career 5.68 postseason ERA following his NLDS Game 1 start against the Diamondbacks previous year, a sample size spanning 15 starts and four relief appearances totaling 95 1/3 innings. He limited the Brewers this time around to a lone run on three hits and two walks with nine strikeouts over seven innings of work.

After Ryan Braun walked two batters after Cain's RBI double, Kershaw (1-1) retired the final 13 batters he faced. He allowed two hits over 5.2 shutout innings but didn't factor into the decision as the Dodgers stunned the Brewers bullpen late for a comeback win.

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