Don't believe us? Kershaw has registered 12 quality starts (6 IP, 3 ER or fewer) in 22 career postseason opportunities. This allowed Counsell to get a lefty-lefty matchup to begin the game and still start Miley in Game 6 on Friday. Craig Counsell allowed starter Wade Miley to pitch to one batter (a walk to Cody Bellinger) before he removed him for Brandon Woodruff with no outs in the first inning.

"I think we gave each other a big hug", Bellinger said.

The Dodgers haven't been in back-to-back World Series since losing to the Yankees in 1977 and '78.

Then with two outs and a full count, Bellinger ripped a single to right field to score Machado and win the game.

Erik Kratz is back starting at catcher and hitting seventh.

There was the short-term view heading into Game 5, that one team would push in front, that the other would be nudged to the edge of elimination, that a whole lot rested on Kershaw's ability to shake past postseason failures and toss his best game.

Orlando Arcia's throwing error led to the Dodgers scoring an unearned against Woodruff in the fifth that tied it 1-1.

"I don't know if it was that much better, just a little bit better execution maybe", Kershaw said of his repertoire. That's made him one of the best pitchers of this generation, a three-time Cy Young Award victor, a seven-time all-star, the NL MVP in 2014 and the heartbeat of this franchise.

Curtis Granderson hit an RBI double in the ninth. That prompted Dodgers manager to call on Kenley Jansen for the final out.

Brewers star Christian Yelich, who almost won the NL Triple Crown this season, was hitless in four at-bats. Yes, the Dodgers' leading home run hitter decidedly tried not to hit a home run, and instead helped win a baseball game.

Taylor connected on a 97 miles per hour four-seam fastball for an infield single and was able to take second on a throwing error by Milwaukee shortstop Orlando Arcia. Milwaukee promptly won its final seven regular-season games and an NL Central tiebreaker against the Chicago Cubs to earn its first division title since 2011, and the Brewers did more than enough at the plate in a sweep of Colorado in the Division Series.

Kershaw is in his 11th major league season, all with the Dodgers. The Crew was up 1-0 at that point. He started Games 2 and 3 and came off the bench in the 11th inning on Tuesday for Milwaukee.

This is an embarrassing showing from their fanbase with a trip to the World Series on the line.
