L.A. finds itself down 2 games to 1 in the National League Championship Series after the embarrassing shutout that saw them leave as many as 10 runners in scoring position. The Dodgers primarily have been using Chris Taylor in the leadoff spot.

The Brewers and Dodgers will play Game 6 Friday 8:40 EST - the series heads back to Milwaukee.

Grandal did manage a double with no outs in the fifth, one of the Dodgers' five hits on the night.

Saudi officials have strongly denied any involvement in his disappearance and say that he left the consulate soon after arriving. He also said Mr Pompeo would be leaving for Saudi Arabia in the next hour, adding that "we're going to leave nothing uncovered".


Roberts said the fans who booed struggling catcher Yasmani Grandal had a right to do so, but said hearing it "is tough". However, after returning to the dugout, Counsell and his trainer came back onto the field before Gonzalez faced Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes and removed the lefty from the contest.

Fans on hand witnessed the Dodgers grab a 3-2 lead over the Brewers amid a stellar performance from Dodgers ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw, who shook off past playoff failures to deliver in the key game.

Rich Hill will start for the Dodgers against fellow left-hander Gio Gonzalez, the first time he'll take the mound since October 8, when he started Game 4 of the Dodgers NL Division Series against the Atlanta Braves. That means even if the Brewers make the World Series, Gonzalez won't be eligible to pitch for the rest of the postseason.

Davies wasn't on the roster for the NL Division Series. He made 16 appearances for the Brewers during the regular season, including 14 starts, with a 4.25 ERA, 11.9 K/9 and a 4.6 BB/9.

This may actually benefit Milwaukee in the very short term given that Milwaukee used six relievers last night, so there will be a fresh arm on staff for Game 5 tonight.
