The Milwaukee Brewers stole back home field advantage on Monday evening with the visitors from Wisconsin pushing past the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 at Dodger Stadium in Southern California.

Leading the way for the Brewers was starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin, as the 30-year old right handed hurler from Maracaibo, Zulia, Venezuela managed 5 1-3 innings while allowing zero earned runs on three hits, conceding two walks and striking out a team high six batters for the contest.

Chacin and four other relievers combined to five hit the hosts for the game. 

The victory gives the top seed in the National League a 2-1 advantage in the seven game series.

Orlando Arcia continues to produce for the Brewers, as the 24-year old shortstop from Anaco, Venezuela launched his third home run of the young postseason in the top of the seventh inning. Arcia bombed the two run home run off of Los Angeles starting pitcher Walker Buehler.

Monday was the third shutout in six games for the Brewers this postseason.

The Dodgers loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth inning, but Brewers closer Jeremy Jeffress was able to navigate out of the jam.

Buehler had a decent start for the Dodgers, as the 24-year old right handed thrower from Crestview Hills, Kentucky lasted seven innings while surrendering four earned runs on five hits, allowing one walk and fanning a game high eight batters for the contest. 

Gio Gonzalez and Rich Hill get the call in Game 4 with Clayton Kershaw confirmed as starting Game 5 for LA.

The Brewers are 31/10 to win the series, with the Dodgers 10/39.
