Woodruffs bat provides relief in Game 1

The Los Angeles Dodgers entered the National League Championship Series with a wealth of postseason experience but nonetheless faced questions on how they would fare against a dominant Milwaukee Brewers bullpen.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3, 1.97 ERA) will start today for the Dodgers, while the Brewers will go with Wade Miley (5-2, 2.57).

Justin Turner hit a two-run go-ahead home run off Jeremy Jeffress in the eighth inning to lead Los Angeles to victory. "We've talked about September 1 started our playoff run, and they've been very successful, giving us a chance to hold our team within striking distance, have given us a chance to win games late".

"It wasn't my best game there, but during the season you got one or two bad games", Chacin said. "We did a good job last night battling back into it and came up a little bit short".

"He got lucky", Jeffress told reporters. "I was more upset about kind of the decision to throw certain pitches". "Got the ball up". Then, he grounded into a double play in the ninth inning with no outs.

"Just me against [Yelich]. And luckily I got him out", Jansen told Fox Sports.

"It's a pretty cool story", Gonzalez admitted Thursday as the Brewers and Dodgers worked out at Miller Park ahead of the series opener.

"We want to finish off what we didn't finish off previous year".

Here are a few things you should know about what potentially could be one of the best Championship Series we've ever. "The guys we have down there. you trust them".

Urias, formerly the organization's top starting-pitching prospect, made three scoreless relief appearances as a September call-up in his return from shoulder surgery, a procedure that kept the left-hander out for more than a year. That was when Orlando Arcia sneaked a home run over the center field wall, his second of the playoffs after hitting just three in 119 regular season games.

He was charged with nine runs - eight earned - and five hits in a 21-5 rout on August 2.

In the NL Division Series, while his team quickly dispatched the young Atlanta Braves, Turner went 5-for-14 with four walks and zero strikeouts.

Shaw's homer came one out into the sixth inning off Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood, increasing the Milwaukee lead to 3-0.

Los Angeles shortstop Manny Machado has been hot the last couple games, going 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs in last night's loss. Chris Taylor finished 3-for-5 with a triple, a run and an RBI.

Hader wasn't available in Game 2, Jeffress was, and Milwaukee surely regretted not having the lefty at its disposal. "We're in a position right now where we can give ourselves an opportunity to get back there".
