It looks like Gio Gonzalez might have twisted his ankle and he's being taken out in the second inning. He was yelling into his glove before limping off the mound.

Yasiel Puig opened the Dodgers half of the second with a comebacker that Gio Gonzalez couldn't get to for an infield single. Gonzalez appeared to roll his ankle on the play and was soon removed from the game after initially trying to pitch through it.

A night after his comments calling out Dodgers fans for their energy during NLCS Game 3, Enrique Hernandez changed his walk-up song to 'Sorry' by Justin Bieber for his first at-bat of Game 4 and was greeted with a loud ovation from the crowd.

According to Statcast, Rich Hill threw a fastball at 92.7 MPH in the first inning -- his fastest pitch of the season. Perhaps he's energized by a Dodger Stadium gathering that is notably more amped up than it was last night.

Brian Dozier, of all people, snaps an 0-for-11 rut with runners in scoring position since the start of Game 3. His two-out single in the first — his 6th hit in 52 at-bats since the start of September — gives the Dodgers a 1-0 lead.

The Dodgers bats are finally alive and Dodger Stadium is rocking after Brian Dozier's first-inning single has given L.A. the first lead of NLCS Game 4.

Whether Enrique Hernandez's postgame comments have anything to do with firing up the crowd is uncertain, but there is a noticeably louder and more energized vibe at Dodger Stadium early in NLCS Game 4.

Clayton Kershaw: "No disrespect to 1988, we hear about that a lot. And I've said it before, but we are sick of it. And it's up to us to do something about it, obviously. We need to create some of our own history."

The Dodgers are going aggressive with their RHH lineup against LH Gio Gonzalez. Chris Taylor (LF), David Freese (1B), Brian Dozier (2B), Enrique Hernandez (CF) all in there. So is C Austin Barnes, as expected. One surprise: Yasiel Puig instead of Matt Kemp in RF.

Game-time temperature will be 75 degrees. As of 2:29P PST, there is a slight wind blowing out to left center field.

Dodgers need to start seizing the day -- or else

L.A. is making too many mistakes while failing to do the little things that win championships, most notably hitting with runners in scoring position.

Dodger boo: Slumping Grandal chided at home

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 -- the fans took notice.

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."

Brewers beating Dodgers by flipping NLCS script

Milwaukee's starting pitchers -- Jhoulys Chacin in Game 3 -- and lineup depth have been big trouble for L.A., when most expected something else.

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.
