LA heroics even series with Brewers

14 October 2018 11:09:32 UK

For most of Saturday's Game 2 it appeared that the Milwaukee Brewers were heading to a commanding 2-0 series lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

However the Dodgers rallied as Los Angeles scored two runs in the top of the eighth inning to power past the hosts 4-3 at Miller Park in Milwaukee in the National League Championship Series.

Leading the way for Los Angeles was a veteran in Justin Turner, as the 33-year old third baseman from Long Beach, California launched a two run homer to give the Dodgers the lead late in the contest. Turner went 2-for-4 while knocking in two RBI's and scoring one run for the game.

The victory snapped Milwaukee's 12-game winning streak that had seen the Brewers power down the stretch, defeat the Chicago Cubs in a playoff and then the Colorado Rockies in the Division Series.

As such the Dodgers have tied up the series 1-1, with the series heading to Southern California for Game 3. 

Wade Miley was solid for the Brewers, as the 31-year old left handed veteran hurler from Hammond, Louisiana lasted 5 2-3 innings while allowing zero earned runs on two hits, conceding zero walks and striking out a team high four batters for the game.

Saturday was the second blown save for Brewers reliever Jeremy Jeffress.

Jhoulys Chacin will have the ball for Milwaukee in the key Game 3 contest at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. Walker Buehler will look to make up for his poor last start in the post-season in opposition.

The Dodgers are 4/7 to win Sunday's game with the Brewers 31/20.

The Dodgers are 23/20 to win the World Series while the Brewers are 1212/1.
