The Dodgers will continue to start Austin Barnes behind the plate. "He's really catching well, he's having good at-bats," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "To still have Yasmani's bat off the bench is a plus with their bullpen. But I think right now, Austin makes sense."

The Los Angeles Dodgers are one win away from advancing to the World Series for the 2nd consecutive year.

Craig Counsell said having Wade Miley face one batter today and then come back to start Game 6 in Milwaukee was the plan all along as long as the Brewers weren't down 3-1 in the series.

For the second time in about 18 hours, the Dodgers are celebrating a win on the field at Dodger Stadium. This time it's a slightly more subdued celebration than after last night's 13th-inning walk-off winner as L.A. moves a win away from a World Series return with a 5-2 Game 5 victory.

The Dodgers rode an effective Clayton Kershaw and some rare small ball to a 5-2 win that gave them a 3-2 edge in the NLCS. They'll head to Milwaukee one win away from their second straight trip to the World Series.

Powered by a vintage Clayton Kershaw performance and some timely hitting throughout the lineup, the Dodgers are heading to Milwaukee with a 3-2 NLCS lead after a 5-2 Game 5 victory at Dodger Stadium.

Kershaw makes Kratz look silly (0:18)
Dodgers double lead with 2-run 7th (0:58)
Kershaw strikes out 9 in win (0:39)

The Dodgers have scored today on: a single past a drawn-in infield, a single to the opposite field, a single up the middle, and a slow grounder. Who are these guys?

Puig extends lead with RBI single (0:26)

Another gem by Clayton Kershaw, on a day when his Dodgers really needed it. 7 innings, 1 run, 3 hits, 2 walks, 9 strikeouts on 98 pitches. He has retired the last 13 hitters in order.

Muncy's RBI single puts Dodgers ahead (0:31)
Barnes ties it up with RBI single (0:25)

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Max Muncy saw a pitch deep, stayed short, drove it the other way and brought in a run. What a concept. The Dodgers lead, 2-1, in the 6th, and Brandon Woodruff, today's actual starting pitcher, is done.

On a team full of big-hitting stars, it was two of the little guys who combined to manufacture L.A.'s first run of NLCS Game 5 as Chris Taylor hustled out an infield single, advanced to second on an error on the throw, stole third and came home on Austin Barnes' single up the middle.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Austin Barnes, hitting in the shadows, slapped a base hit into center field. He didn't just tie the game at 1; he extended Clayton Kershaw's outing, prompting potential pinch-hitter Yasiel Puig to retreat to the dugout.
