The NLCS moves on to game four with the Los Angeles Dodgers hosting the Milwaukee Brewers in a Tuesday MLB matchup.
The Milwaukee Brewers picked up a 4-0 victory at the LA Dodgers in game three of the NLCS for a 2-1 series lead. Milwaukee starter Jhoulys Chacin got the win with 5.1 shutout frames while four relievers put up zeros. The Brewer did their damage on seven hits and three walks with Orlando Arcia cracking a two run homer while Ryan Braun recorded an RBI.
Milwaukee has named left hander Gio Gonzalez as Tuesday’s starter at the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers never got their offense going in Monday’s game three loss to visiting Milwaukee. Los Angeles starter Walker Buehler was charged with all four runs on five hits and a walk through seven innings to absorb the loss.
The Dodgers offense consisted of five hits and three bases on balls with Manny Machado going 2-3 with a walk while Yasiel Puig doubled and walked.
Left hander Rich Hill toes the rubber against Milwaukee on Tuesday. Hill did not receive a decision in a 6-2 win at Atlanta in the NLDS where he allowed two runs on four hits and five BB over 4.1 frames.
Milwaukee are 13-3 in their last 16 road games and are 5-1 in their last 6 playoff games and 35-17 in their last 52 overall. Dodgers are 5-1 in their last 6 home games and are 8-3 in their last 11 playoff home games and are 18-6 in their last 24 overall.
I’m not going to lay juice with the Dodgers even though Hill has been dominant in a pair of outings against Milwaukee. I’d rather do something on the plus odds or just watch…
