While this has become an increasing issue across the league, there was one instance in the sixth inning of Game 5 of the series on Wednesday in Los Angeles - in which the Dodgers won 5-2 - that tipped off Brewers catcher Erik Kratz.

With the chance to move to the brink of the World Series, a lineup that was resourceful and powerful throughout the regular season and in the division series couldn't hit a homer or string together any significant rallies. It's hard for a team to win a playoff game when they only score two runs. Grandal was one for four with three strike outs Monday, and had his third passed ball of the series, drawing boos from the crowd of 52,793.

"If they think they can do it, go ahead, put on your gear, and go catch 99 with breaking balls that have a lot of movement", Hernandez said, according to Alden Gonzalez of ESPN. With Chris Taylor at the plate and Corbin Burnes on the mound, Machado signaled to Taylor. Max Muncy followed with a single that scored the go-ahead run.

"With each postseason and not winning a World Series, I think you tack on a little bit more pressure, a little bit more urgency to win, especially when you're in the market that we're in, when you're with the team that we are", Kershaw said.

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.

That also directly correlates to the position the Brewers are in heading into the weekend, as their pitching has been sometimes great and mostly good enough to win games.

When the series was in Milwaukee, the Dodgers were only able to produce against the acclaimed Brewers' bullpen. Machado is only hurting his offseason money but this is a bad showing for a shortstop that was supposed to change the Dodgers.

Kershaw was in trouble in the third, when the Brewers scored their only run, but with the bases loaded he struck out Jesus Aguilar in an eight pitch at bat to end the frame and retired the next 12 batters he faced.

The Dodgers said tickets were still available for Game 5, which begins at 2:05 p.m. PDT. The Dodgers will not see Hill until the World Series or as an emergency reliever in a game seven situation.
