Dodgers rebuke fans for Grandal boos, dead air

As Yasmani Grandal continued to struggle -- striking out three times, the last one coming with one out and the bases loaded in the ninth inning -- fans took notice. But the Dodgers didn't appreciate the reaction.

Gio Gonzalez gets Game 4 start for Brewers

The Brewers will start Gio Gonzalez in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series against the Dodgers on Tuesday night, with Wade Miley getting the nod in Game 5 on short rest.

Last one from Kiké Hernandez: "Sometimes we feed off the crowd. Fans here do a great job of showing up and packing the stadium every night and having a lot of passion for the game. Tonight, for whatever reason — I guess as contagious as the energy is going to be from the fans to the players, it was from the players to the fans."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

More Kiké Hernandez: "If they think they can do it, go ahead, put on your gear and go catch 99 with breaking balls that have a lot of movement. He's been one of the best catchers in the game for a while now. He's having a little bit of a rough patch, which we all — as humans, as baseball players — go through."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Kiké Hernandez, on Dodgers fans booing Yasmani Grandal and calling for Austin Barnes: "It sucks that there's nothing going on in the stands since the first inning when Braun hit that double. It's quiet for the rest of the evening, and it sucks that they got loud just to show up Yasmani."

Craig Counsell said keeping Josh Hader available for the next two games in L.A. factored into the decision to take him out after the eighth inning tonight. Counsell added that he thinks his team has set itself up well for Games 4 and 5.

Brewers hang on to win NLCS game 3

Dan Shulman and Chris Singleton share their final thoughts on the Brewers hanging on to win game 3 of the NLCS and the way Craig Counsell used his bullpen

Braun calls ninth inning 'nerve wracking' (1:03)
Dozier strikes out with bases loaded to end Game 3 (0:49)

Dave Roberts says that Austin Barnes will start Game 4 behind the plate instead of the struggling Yasmani Grandal, who has had issues with passed balls and struck out in big spots so far this series.

Jeremy Jeffress settled down after loading the bases in the ninth inning and struck out Brian Dozier for the final out of a 4-0 NLCS Game 3 victory that has the Brewers two wins away from their first World Series berth since 1982.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

A fitting way to end this night for the Dodgers: 2nd and 3rd, none out, down by 4 in the 9th against a reeling reliever, and they get nothing. They lose, 4-0, and fall behind 2-1 in this Series. They went 0-for-10 with RISP. Cody Bellinger and Yasmani Grandal are really struggling.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

If Jeremy Jeffress can lock this down for the Brewers, it will have been an ideal game for the Milwaukee staff all around. Length from Jhoulys Chacin. Perfect outings for Corey Knebel and Josh Hader, with the latter barely breaking a sweat. On top of that, you'd have renewed confidence in Jeffress, if he finishes it off strong. Lead off single for Justin Turner -- so maybe it's a big if.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

This could be a win in two ways for the Brewers: They can take a 2-1 lead in this Series, and they might have Josh Hader available tomorrow. Jeremy Jeffress is checking in with a 4-run lead in the 9th, which means Hader will have thrown only 8 pitches.

Faint Dodger Stadium chant, after Yasmani Grandal's third passed ball: "We want Austin! We want Austin!" That would be Austin Barnes, the backup catcher who took over behind the plate last October.

Arcia hits HR just over Puig's glove (0:27)

Another passed ball by Yasmani Grandal, putting a runner in scoring position and eliciting boos from a sold-out crowd at Dodger Stadium.

Brewers SS Orlando Arcia had 3 home runs in 119 regular-season games. He has 3 home runs in 6 postseason games, the last of which was a 2-run shot to give his team a 4-0 lead over the Dodgers in the 7th inning.

Dan Mullen ESPN.com 

Orlando Arcia's postseason power surge continues with a two-run homer to right. The Milwaukee shortstop now has as many homers this postseason as he did all season (3) and the Brewers have a 4-0 NLCS Game 3 lead.

Milwaukee's pitching plan is working to perfection so far in NLCS Game 3 as Jhoulys Chacin held the Dodgers scoreless into the sixth before Corey Knebel came on to start the bullpen train with a 2-0 lead.
