Bellinger laced a 3-2 pitch from Junior Guerra into right field, scoring Machado, who slid home and touched the plate with his left hand to beat Christian Yelich's throw and finally end an October thriller that took 5 hours, 15 minutes.
So close to taking a commanding 3-1 lead in the series, the Brewers are now even with the Dodgers at two games apiece. Manager Craig Counsell started Miley for one hitter in Game 5 before hooking him for reliever Brandon Woodruff, a move created to deceive Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts into stacking his lineup with right-handed hitters who no longer held a matchup advantage. "But when you see guys do certain things out on the field to relay certain signs to hitters, then you know you've got to make things a little bit more tricky or complex".
When the series was in Milwaukee, the Dodgers were only able to produce against the acclaimed Brewers' bullpen.
The Brewers hadn't scored fewer than two runs in a game since Pittsburgh blanked them on September 22. The Dodgers are 2-0 coming off a loss this postseason.
"It's a tough place to play", he said of the Brewers' roofed stadium.
Hernandez also took issue with the crowd's treatment of catcher Yasmani Grandal, who was on the receiving end of boos after a passed ball allowed a run to score for the Brewers. Jesus Aguilar went 1-for-5 with a walk. Manny Pina finished 1-for-2 with a double and two walks. Orlando Arcia was 1-for-5 and scored the lone run. Game 6 of the NLCS will take place Friday at Milwaukee, with Game 7 on Saturday, if necessary.
"There is concern amongst some Brewers that the Dodgers are using video to pick up their signs, multiple sources tell The Athletic", the report says.
But the Brewers made 18 consecutive outs between the third inning and a ninth-inning mini-rally, undoing their pitching staff's resourceful performance.
Among those who have logged at least 1,500 innings for the Dodgers, he ranks second to Jeff Pfeffer - a man who pitched before the Great Depression - with a 2.39 ERA.
This sets up Wade Miley to start Game 6 in Milwaukee and Jhoulys Chacin Game 7 - instead of Chacin in Game 6 on short rest. He didn't factor in the decision either time. Both were good enough, though, and the game came down to a battle of the bullpens - where rough outings for Corbin Burnes and Jeremy Jeffress helped drown the Brew Crew. Kershaw had his best performance of this postseason, limiting the Brewers to a run and three hits while striking out nine.
