Why The Brewers Pulled Their SP After 5 Pitches vs

Yasmani Grandal

So this one is you really got to win.

Cash regularly used an "opener" for one inning before going to his bullpen this season, a strategy other clubs began to adopt down the stretch. Clayton Kershaw helped his own cause by walking twice and scoring a run.

Roughed up in the NLCS opener, Kershaw mixed his fastball and slider on a hot day to shut down the Brewers. The Dodgers ace didn't allow a baserunner past the third inning.

"He just has a knack", Brewers star Christian Yelich said.

Game 6 is scheduled for 8:39 p.m. ET Friday at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

Lefty Wade Miley, who faced only one batter as the starting pitcher in Game 5 (he served as a decoy) will start Friday for the Brewers.

Brandon Woodruff pitched 5⅓ innings of highly unusual relief against the Dodgers on Wednesday, but he also gave up Max Muncy's tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth inning of Los Angeles's 5-2 victory.

"To go back to Milwaukee up 3-2 as opposed to being down 3-2 is huge for us", Kershaw said. They have relied on "bullpenning" nearly all postseason, a new-age pitching approach that minimizes the role of the starting pitcher and instead hands games to a string of relievers. "We've got some good contributions from guys at the bottom".

"It's home-field advantage. That's the way I'm looking at it".

A surprise bullpen game worked well, until it didn't - and it ultimately didn't prevent the Brewers from losing for the third time in four games after a 12-game winning streak that propelled them deep into the postseason. "One person inside the organization said that on videos of the games, a coach could be seen running from the hallway into the Dodgers' dugout whenever a runner reached second base, possibly a sign that L.A. was relaying a pitchers' sequences to the runner during those at-bats". "That's where our experience comes in". He says the Dodgers' play in Game 1 was "unacceptable" and the Brewers "put us against the wall early and never looked back!"

Julio Urias was chosen to NLCS roster over Scott Alexander because "we liked his pitch mix more for this series" Dave Roberts shared with the media. He said Tuesday he hasn't made a decision about his future. The three-time Cy Young Award victor carried a career 5.68 postseason ERA following his NLDS Game 1 start against the Diamondbacks a year ago, a sample size spanning 15 starts and four relief appearances totaling 95 1/3 innings.

Pitching in 82-degree sunshine, Kershaw was well-rested and masterful in allowing one run and three hits over seven. He struck out nine, all on breaking pitches, and walked two.
