Wed Oct 1704:11Machado called 'dirty player' by Yelich after benches clear
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Manny Machado has stepped into trouble again, causing at least one opponent to call him "a dirty player."Both benches cleared after the Los Angeles Dodgers' star shortstop clipped the back leg of Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar while running out his groundout Tuesday night in the 10th inning of Game 4 of the NL Championship Series.Aguilar left his foot on the base for a moment after Machado was already out, and the star shortstop appeared to show his displeasure by bringing his left foot forward and kicking Aguilar on the back of the leg.The incident immediately took the top spot on the growing list of Machado's debatable decisions in baseball ethics."He's a player that has a history of those types of incidents," Milwaukee slugger Christian Yelich said. "One time is an accident. Repeated over and over and over again, you're just a dirty player. It's a dirty play by a dirty player, and that's what it is. I have a lot of respect for him as a player, but you can... [More]
Wed Oct 1704:01Power outage: Brewers' bats struggle in 13-inning loss
LOS ANGELES (AP) — For the first time since the Milwaukee Brewers began their incredible late-season surge, their bats went cold enough to lose.The Brewers managed just eight hits over 13 innings in their 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night, evening the NL Championship Series at 2 games apiece.With the chance to move to the brink of the World Series, a lineup that was resourceful and powerful throughout the regular season and in the division series couldn't hit a homer or string together any significant rallies.Just two of the Brewers' hits went for extra bases. They went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position, stranding 10 runners.Those struggles made it even more painful when Manny Machado slid home with the winning run on Cody Bellinger's single."There's a bunch of guys we need offense from," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. "We've got some good contributions from guys at the bottom. But I think a bunch of guys are not really on it right now offensively."The... [More]

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Manny Machado has stepped into trouble again.Both benches cleared after the Los Angeles Dodgers' star shortstop clipped the back leg of Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar while running out his groundout Tuesday night in the 10th inning of Game 4 of the NL Championship Series.Aguilar left his foot on the base for a moment after Machado was already out, and the star shortstop appeared to show his displeasure by bringing his left foot forward and kicking Aguilar on the back of the leg.Aguilar wasn't hurt, but he was angry. Dodgers first base coach George Lombard joined the discussion before players spilled onto the field from both benches and bullpens.Nothing happened beyond that spirited argument, and the bad feelings were gone when Machado singled in the 13th inning. He briefly hugged Aguilar while they stood together at first base."We're family. Things happen," Machado said. "Everything that happens on the field stays on the field. He's a great guy.

Tue Oct 1601:11Grandal's woes, quiet LA bats doom Dodgers in NLCS Game 3
LOS ANGELES (AP) — When the Dodger Stadium crowd wasn't booing Yasmani Grandal or chanting his backup's name, the fans largely sat in a disappointed hush while the Milwaukee Brewers' pitching staff mowed down their team.The Dodgers' miserable Monday night only got more intriguing after the Brewers' 4-0 victory in Game 3 of the NL Championship Series, when Enrique Hernandez wondered aloud why his team and its fans didn't come to play."We had no energy," the Los Angeles second baseman said. "The stadium had no energy. The fans had no energy. Overall, it was a pretty bad game for everybody who calls themselves Dodgers."The Dodgers fell behind after three batters and never caught up during their first home game of the NLCS. Los Angeles went 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position, struck out 14 times and managed just five hits.This comprehensively frustrating evening required an outlet, and Grandal is wearing a target during his miserable postseason. Dodger Stadium, normally a cauldron... [More]
Mon Oct 1523:41Grandal's woes, quiet LA bats doom Dodgers in NLCS Game 3
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Of all the chants that could have emanated from the Dodger Stadium stands during the eighth inning of Game 3 of the NLCS, "We want Austin!" was not exactly the most likely.But after Los Angeles catcher Yasmani Grandal committed his third passed ball of the series Monday night, the voices of exasperated fans pleading for his unsung backup, Austin Barnes, improbably echoed through Chavez Ravine.And when Grandal struck out on three pitches with the bases loaded in the ninth inning of the Dodgers' 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, he only heard boos.The fans' vocal disappointment was mostly a measure of their dissatisfaction with Grandal, who is having a miserable postseason in every aspect. The veteran catcher dropped to 3 for 22 in the playoffs with 10 strikeouts despite a popup that turned into a ground-rule double in Game 3.But the unlikely chant for his backup also reflected the big-budget Dodgers' desperate frustration with their own inability to seize the impor...

Sat Oct 1322:30Brewers' bullpen showing cracks against Dodgers
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Told he had the day off after pitching three shutout innings in the NL Championship Series opener, hard-throwing Milwaukee left-hander Josh Hader wasn't expecting a call to the bullpen.After watching Brewers relievers blow a late three-run lead in Game 2, Hader would have embraced back-to-back outings, high pitch count and all."Adrenaline can do a lot things," he said when asked if he could have pitched.The best-of-seven series is tied at a game apiece after the Dodgers dented the rest of the Brewers' hard-throwing relievers in the late innings for a second straight day and won 4-3 on Saturday.While Wade Miley pitched 5 2/3 shutout innings and became Milwaukee's first pitcher to get an out in the sixth inning in the postseason, the Dodgers rallied from a three-run, seventh-inning deficit for the win.Miley had thrown 74 pitches when he was removed."Look you're either too early or too late," manager Craig Counsell said. "At some point, you've got to make a decision, an... [More]
Sat Oct 1315:30C Grandal out of Dodgers lineup after rough NLCS Game 1
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal is out of the starting lineup for Game 2 of the NL Championship Series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.Grandal committed two errors and had two passed balls in Los Angeles' Game 1 loss Friday night. Austin Barnes replaced Grandal behind the plate.Manager Dave Roberts said he likes the pairing of Barnes and Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu. He also said Barnes has "got some history" with Milwaukee starter Wade Miley, but he is just 1 for 4 in his career against the lefty."Yasi had a tough one last night, but it's not the reason why he's not in there today," Roberts said.Roberts said Grandal will start Game 3 on Monday in Los Angeles.Roberts also put Yasiel Puig in the starting lineup in right field. Cody Bellinger will begin Saturday's game on the bench, but Roberts said he will enter at some point.Bellinger went 0 for 4 in the series opener. The young slugger is 0 for 15 in the playoffs."There is a frustration where he wants to see results, and all players do," Roberts said. "But I encourage him, even today, that where he's at mechanically, I encourage him mentally to stay there in a positive way, because he's going to get some big hits for us."Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell made two changes, inserting Travis Shaw at second base and Erik Kratz at catcher. The addition of Shaw gives the Brewers four lefty batters against Ryu.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

Fri Oct 1218:39Cedeno joins Brewers bullpen for NLCS; Dodgers add Urias
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers put Xavier Cedeno on their roster for the NL Championship Series against Los Angeles, adding another left-hander to their deep bullpen for the matchup with the Dodgers' power-packed lineup.Cedeno had a 1.13 ERA in eight innings over 15 games after he was acquired in a trade with the Chicago White Sox on Aug. 31. Cedeno replaces slick-fielding outfielder Keon Broxton, who homered in Game 3 of the NLDS sweep against Colorado.Left-handed hitting Max Muncy has a team-high 35 homers for the Dodgers. Two more left-handers, Cody Bellinger and Joc Pederson, are next with 25 each."We made a choice basically to add another pitcher, because it could be a seven-game series," manager Craig Counsell said. "We add another left-hander that we think matches up well in kind of a number of situations. So we add extra potential outs. And then the sacrifice is we're losing a baserunner, a defender, and we're losing a hitter."The Dodgers are sticking with 12 pitchers... [More]
Fri Oct 1217:19Dodgers' Freese hitting 3rd in NLCS vs. familiar Brewers
MILWAUKEE (AP) — David Freese is hitting third for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the NL Championship Series against the Milwaukee Brewers, returning to a city where he enjoyed postseason success in 2011.Freese was the 2011 NLCS MVP after hitting .545 with three homers and nine RBIs for St. Louis in the Cardinals' six-game series victory over the Brewers.The Dodgers acquired Freese this season in August from the Pittsburgh Pirates. He hit .385 in 19 games in the regular season with Los Angeles.The right-handed hitting Freese is in the lineup at first base against Brewers left-handed starter Gio Gonzalez. Lefty slugger Max Muncy, who leads the Dodgers with 35 homers, will come off the bench.Chris Taylor and Justin Turner hit ahead of Freese, who is followed by cleanup hitter Manny Machado, Matt Kemp and Kike Hernandez.Cody Bellinger, the only left-handed hitter in the lineup, is seventh.

Fri Oct 1213:49Cedeno joins Brewers bullpen for NLCS; Dodgers add Urias
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Reliever Xavier Cedeno is joining the Milwaukee Brewers' 25-man roster for the NL Championship Series, giving the strong bullpen another left-handed arm against the Dodgers' power-packed lineup.The Brewers made room for Cedeno by dropping slick-fielding outfielder Keon Broxton off the NLCS roster that was set before Game 1.Cedeno had a 1.13 ERA in eight innings over 15 games since being acquired Aug. 31 in a deal with the Chicago White Sox.Left-handed hitting Max Muncy has a team-high 35 homers for the Dodgers. Two more left-handers, Cody Bellinger and Joc Pederson, are next with 25 each.The addition of Cedeno was the only change to the Brewers' roster from the Division Series. Milwaukee will have 12 pitchers, one more than it had in the NLCS, and 13 positions players.The Dodgers are sticking with 12 pitchers and 13 positions players, but made one change from the Division Series. They switched left-handers for the NLCS, with Julio Urias taking Scott Alexander's roster spot.The hard-throwing Urias had no record and didn't allow a run in three games this season. He returned to the big leagues in mid-September after missing more than a year following surgery on his left shoulder.Alexander was 2-1 with a 3.68 ERA and three saves this season. He made one appearance in the NLDS against the Braves, pitching a scoreless ninth inning in Game 3.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
