Brewers Call Manny Machado a Dirty Player: "F- That Motherf--"

Brewers Call Manny Machado a Dirty Player:

The Dodgers took a 3-2 lead in the NL Championship Series, boosted by Max Muncy's go-ahead single in the sixth inning.

"We all want something to talk about and you guys [the media] do, too, and that's great", he said. "And then once I noticed he was attacking me, I just tried to put the ball in play and hopefully find a hole this time".

The teams return to Milwaukee for Game 6 on Friday. Wade Miley made the start for the Brewers and was pulled after only five pitches. Lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu will go for the Dodgers.

Gonzalez has a high ankle sprain and will probably need to be replaced on the roster, Counsell said. I play baseball. I try to go out there and win for my team.


The Dodgers haven't been in back-to-back World Series since losing to the Yankees in 1977 and '78.

Two years later, Machado charged the mound when Kansas City's Yordano Ventura, a pitcher with a history of head-hunting, threw at him, costing him a four-game suspension.

The Brewers, who lost 2-1 in 13 innings at Dodger Stadium, were not happy. He issued one walk and struck out eight. In an interview with Fox Sports 1 that aired before Game 4, he acknowledged there was "no excuse" for not making more effort - but also displayed an attitude that won't endear him to the old school. Kershaw struck out Jesus Aguilar to end the third, the first of 13 consecutive batters that the left-hander retired. He then gave way to Ryan Madson, who allowed back-to-back two-out doubles, with Curtis Granderson's driving in a run.

Brewers star Christian Yelich, who almost won the NL Triple Crown this season, was hitless in four at-bats. Moustakas is 2 for 17 with six strikeouts in the NLCS, while Cain is 4 for 20 with seven strikeouts and Aguilar is 3 for 14. It wasn't until Joc Pederson's leadoff single in the fourth inning that Los Angeles recorded their first hit.


The 23-year-old outfielder ripped a 3-2 pitch from Brewers reliever Junior Guerra (0-1), allowing Manny Machado to score from second base. Yasiel Puig singled to center with two outs, bringing home Manny Machado after he was hit by a pitch from Corbin Burnes. Justin Turner delivered an RBI single in the inning as part of an afternoon he reached base three times.

And when Bellinger finally ended it, the only NLCS game that had lasted longer was the New York Mets' 15-inning victory over Atlanta in Game 5 in 1999, which took 5 hours, 46 minutes. He staved that off and the Dodgers would win, 5-2.

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.
