  • NLCS Game 6: Dodgers vs Brewers Preview and Pick

    2018 NLCS

    Dodgers Can Clinch NLCS in the Brew City

    The fans at Miller Park will see the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. This series has been a nail-biter the entire time. There is no reason tonight will be any different.

    TV: 8:39 p.m. ET, Fox Sports 1

    PITCHING MATCHUP: Dodgers LH Hyun-Jin Ryu (1-0, 1.59 ERA) vs. Brewers LH Wade Miley (0-0, 0.00)

    ODDS: The Dodgers are listed as -113-moneyline favorites versus the Brewers. The game’s total opened at 8, but is now down to 7.5.

    The Dodgers are one win away from a second straight trip to the World Series. They will have to earn that victory on the road in very hostile territory. The Dodgers will try to close out the best-of-seven NLCS.

    The Dodgers fell behind 2-1 in the series after dropping Game 3 at home. They turned up the pitching over the next two contests. They limited the Brewers to a total of three runs in 22 innings in the two wins.

    Pitching Will Decide This One

    Milwaukee will try to find a way to push some runs across against left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu. They are making some history by tossing lefty Wade Miley at the start in back-to-back games.

    Miley started Game 5 but threw only five pitches, issuing a walk to Cody Bellinger. He was replaced by right-hander Brandon Woodruff in a surprise move designed to give Milwaukee a matchup advantage.

    Miley dominated Los Angeles in Game 2, scattering two hits over 5 2/3 innings without factoring in the decision.

    Ryu tossed seven scoreless innings to earn a win over the Atlanta Braves during the NL Division Series. He was not quite as sharp in Game 2 at Milwaukee.

    The South Korea native was reached for two runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision. Ryu did not allow more than two runs in any of his last five starts going back to the regular season. He has yet to be reached for more than three earned runs on the season.

    This and That and NLCS Prediction

    Brewers star RF Christian Yelich is 3-for-20 without an extra-base hit in the series.

    LA RHP Pedro Baez has thrown 6 2/3 scoreless innings. He has allowed a total of two hits with 10 strikeouts in six postseason appearances.

    Milwaukee went Game 5 without using relievers Josh Hader, Corey Knebel or Jeremy Jeffress, and all three should be ready to go Friday.

    PREDICTION: Brewers 4, Dodgers 2
