Left-hander Clayton Kershaw stopped Milwaukee on three hits over seven innings as the Dodgers grabbed the edge in the National League Championship Series Wednesday. The 5-2 win puts the Brewers on the brink of elimination. Los Angeles leads the best-of-seven series three-games-to-two as it tries to make it to the World Series in back-to-back seasons for the first time in 40 years. Lorenzo Cain’s R-B-I double in the third scored Milwaukee’s first run and Curtis Granderson knocked in the other one in the ninth inning. There was an odd situation in the first inning, when Manager Craig Counsell pulled Wade Miley after facing only one batter, whom he walked.
Miley’s replacement, Brandon Woodruff did pitch well according to the skipper.
Mike Moustakas says they are still waiting for their offensive explosion.
The teams take today off, then Miley starts Friday night in Milwaukee.
