Brewers, Dodgers even in NLCS after late night loss in extra innings

Yasmani Grandal possible Mets target benched by Dodgers

LOS ANGELES-If Clayton Kershaw is pitching his final games for the Los Angeles Dodgers, the three-time NL Cy Young Award victor isn't saying. He said Tuesday he hasn't made a decision about his future.

Clayton Kershaw has a reputation for being bad in the postseason, but let's look at this situation for what it is: Kershaw has good starts in the playoffs and he has bad ones, as well.

The Dodgers jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a first-inning RBI single from Brian Dozier, who was making his first start of the postseason.

The Dodgers' offense broke loose with five runs over the fifth, sixth and seventh innings that had the sellout crowd of 54,502 on its feet whipping blue towels and cheering loudly. He lasted just three innings in losing the NLCS opener while giving up five runs - four earned - at Miller Park. He issued one walk and struck out eight.

Pitching in 82-degree sunshine, Kershaw was well-rested and masterful in allowing one run and three hits over seven.

Here's Dodgers president Stan Kasten (jokingly) LYING TO OUR FACE about Clayton Kershaw - saying he's not focused on getting a new deal done with the pitcher - but that's okay, we know what's really going on.

Kershaw had a subpar start against the Astros in Game 5 of the World Series a year ago and the narrative hit a fever pitch. Kershaw's career postseason ERA is now 4.11 and it would be much lower if his bullpen had, in the past, done its job more effectively.

"I knew the way Woodruff was throwing I wanted to get something going, maybe get on third with no outs and give us a good opportunity", Taylor said. That knotted up the game, 1-1.

Curtis Granderson hit an RBI double in the ninth.

Taylor connected on a 97 miles per hour four-seam fastball for an infield single and was able to take second on a throwing error by Milwaukee shortstop Orlando Arcia.

It was the fourth postseason extra-inning game in Dodger Stadium history, and the home team's first such win since beating Philadelphia in Game 4 of the 1978 NLCS.

In the 10th, Ryan Braun singled with two outs and stole second against Jansen, who struck out Jesus Aguilar.

The team that hit a franchise and NL-leading 235 home runs in the regular season did it playing small ball instead, driving in all but one of its runs on singles.

Enrique Hernandez was none too pleased on how the Dodgers played during the 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, nor with how the fan base acted throughout the defeat.

With one out, Machado had a broken-bat single to left and went to second on Guerra's wild pitch.

Foremost on Kershaw's mind will be Wednesday's 5:05 p.m. ET first pitch, when he once again confronts the Brewers, this time with the series tied 2-2.

"I'm incredibly grateful", Kershaw said. Now that the series has shifted to Los Angeles, the Dodgers appear to be struggling against all pitchers.
