Yasmani Grandal, possible Mets target, benched by Dodgers

The Brewers have one of the best bullpens in baseball, but it's the rotation that has produced unexpected heroes

Tied at one game apiece, the Dodgers will try to take the lead over the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series at Dodger Stadium Monday.

Grandal also didn't handle Dodgers starter Walker Buehler's wild pitch in the sixth innnig, while allowed Brewers infielder Travis Shaw to score from third base, making the score 2-0. Most of those nine runs have come in the last few innings of games one and two.

A free agent after this season who could attract attention from the Mets, among others, the veteran catcher was on the bench for Game 4 of the NLCS at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday following a night in which his recent struggles were magnified.

At one point, a smattering of them began "We want Austin!" chants as a plea for Barnes to replace him, which teammate Enrique Hernandez did not appreciate.

Grandal is also struggling mightily in the batter's box, where he is now 7-for-68 with 30 strikeouts for his postseason career.

First child in Florida has died of flu this season, state reports
State officials said those outbreaks did not cause the child's death. 28 percent of parents believe flu vaccines can cause autism. They say getting a flu shot is the best way to prevent from getting sick, and passing it along to others.

"We'll play Austin (on Tuesday)".

"Here at home you are doing your best and to get booed is tough", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. He's been good for us all year. "They want the best out of all of us, especially in the postseason".

It has to be seen as a move to shore up defense behind the plate, since Barnes was 0-for-3 in Game 2, though he did have an RBI in a 4-3 win.

Responded Grandal when asked about the change: "They're losing confidence in me?" Yasmani Grandal had a chance to even up the game at one but he struck out swinging for the fences.

"The fans had no energy", Hernandez told the Los Angeles Times. "Overall, it was a pretty bad game for everybody that calls themselves Dodgers".
