The day game came after Tuesday's suspenseful match-up, which drew a number of celeb fans, including Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, Rob Lowe, Mario Lopez and Will Ferrell.

Miley will now start in Game 6 in Milwaukee. "Once I saw they were attacking me, it was just kind of grind mode and do what you can to put the ball in play and try to end this game".

Down one run in the fifth inning of Game 5 on Wednesday, the Dodgers' backup catcher delivered perhaps the series' most consequential hit to date.

The Dodgers evened the best-of-seven series with a 2-1 victory as Cody Bellinger singled in Manny Machado from second base with two outs in the bottom of the 13th inning.

The Dodgers led 1-0 on Brian Dozier's RBI single in the first off Gio Gonzalez, who left after twisting his ankle while fielding an infield single by Puig in the second.

Los Angeles starter Rich Hill went five innings, giving up one run on three hits with three walks and six strikeouts.

And I'm a different hitter than I was a year ago. There were just two things the Dodgers could be sure of, two very important things, and that was that Kershaw allowed one run on three hits in a 5-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Brewers had a chance in the ninth against closer Kenley Jansen. The Dodgers primarily have been using Chris Taylor in the leadoff spot. Yasiel Puig added a pinch-hit RBI single in the inning to give the Dodgers a 3-1 lead.

Despite being at 98 pitches, Kershaw was allowed to bat for himself with one out in the seventh inning. Even in their only other loss during this 15-game stretch, the Brewers scored three runs in Game 2 of the NLCS.

But his outing Wednesday almost matched what he did in Game 2 of the NL Division Series against Atlanta. Mike Moustakas also went 0 for 6, while Jonathan Schoop, Jesus Aguilar and Orlando Arcia were a combined 2 for 15.
