Another interesting lineup for the Dodgers. David Freese leads off and Max Muncy bats second and plays 2B. Outfield is Chris Taylor (LF), Cody Bellinger (CF), Yasiel Puig (RF). Only guys missing from the Dodgers' typical lineup vs lefties are Kiké Hernandez and Brian Dozier.

And here is Dave Roberts' very interesting Game 6 lineup for the Dodgers, one that features David Freese in the leadoff spot against Milwaukee lefty Wade Miley. The gamesmanship continues. 1. D. Freese (1B);  2. M. Muncy (2B); 3. J. Turner (3B); 4. M. Machado (SS); 5. C. Bellinger (CF); 6. C. Taylor (LF); 7. Y. Puig (RF); 8. A. Barnes (C); 9. H. Ryu (P). According to baseball-reference.com, Freese has started in the leadoff spot in just three of his 1,105 career regular-season appearances.

Manny Machado is October's newest villain

After being called a "dirty player" by Christian Yelich for his antics in L.A., the Dodgers shortstop can expect to hear it from fans at Miller Park.

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.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

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?

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

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.
