Manny Machado Fined Undisclosed Amount for Jesus Aguilar Incident

After coming out on the winning side of a 13-inning marathon, the Los Angeles Dodgers host the Milwaukee Brewers for a final time before the National League Championship Series shifts back to Miller Park this weekend.

Yelich isn't alone in his slump, however: Milwaukee is batting.224 through four games in the NLCS, striking out 41 times - which would seem like a lot if the Dodgers hadn't struck out 49 times. Two days later, Athletics reliever Fernando Abad threw at Machado's knees, almost hitting him, and on the next pitch, he retaliated by throwing his bat at third base, where Alberto Callaspo had just replaced Donaldson. "Once I saw they were attacking me, it was just kind of grind mode and do what you can to put the ball in play and try to end this game".

"He's a player that has a history of those types of incidents", Yelich said. He tried to stay in the game, but after one pitch, he had to be removed for a reliever. Yelich called Machado a "dirty" player.

Wade Miley (5-2, 2.57 ERA) will start today for the Brewers, while Los Angeles will turn to Kershaw (9-5, 2.73). "If that's dirty, that's dirty, I don't know, call it what you want".

Grandal allowed his third passed ball in two starts in the series and also couldn't corral Walker Buehler's sixth-inning breaking ball in the dirt (scored a wild pitch) that allowed infielder Travis Shaw to score the Brewers' second run.

The Brewers tied it 1-all in the fifth on pinch-hitter Domingo Santana's RBI double that took one hop against the right-field wall with Yasiel Puig scrambling in pursuit.

The Dodgers evened the best-of-seven series with a 2-1 victory as Cody Bellinger singled in Manny Machado from second base with two outs in the bottom of the 13th inning. The left-hander exited in the second inning with a sprained left ankle. It's a dirty play by a dirty player, and that's what it is. Dodgers first base coach George Lombard joined the discussion before players spilled onto the field from both benches and bullpens. "The fans had no energy", Kike said after the 4-0 shutout loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

"We are family. We go back to the minor leagues", Machado said in another postgame interview. "He's a great guy".
