Mil­wau­kee holds off L.A. in Game 1

Brew­ers chase Ker­shaw in 4th for 1-0 se­ries lead

Albany Times Union - - MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL -

Re­liever Bran­don Woodruff stunned ace Clay­ton Ker­shaw with a solo home run and the nor­mally shut­down Mil­wau­kee bullpen barely held on as the Brew­ers beat the sloppy Los An­ge­les Dodgers 6-5 Fri­day night in Game 1 of the NL Cham­pi­onship Se­ries.

Hard-throw­ing Josh Hader and the Brew­ers earned their 12th straight win, one shy of the fran­chise record set to open the 1987 sea­son.

The Dodgers scored three times in the eighth to make it 6-4, then nearly tied it in the ninth. Chris Tay­lor hit an RBI triple off cen­ter fielder Lorenzo Cain’s glove with two outs be­fore Corey Knebel fanned Justin Turner to end it.

Ker­shaw was chased be­fore he could re­tire a bat­ter in the fourth in­ning.
