Clayton Kershaw takes the ball in Game 5 of the NLCS on Wednesday - potentially his final start for the Los Angeles Dodgers if they lose the series and the left-hander opts out of the last two years and $70 million (U.S.) remaining on his contract. They started the series with their 12th straight victory, a stretch that spanned the end of the regular season, a sweep of the Colorado Rockies in the National League Division series, and then a convincing win over the Dodgers. It's frustrating, it's part of the game of baseball though.

The Brewers reportedly suspect the Dodgers of sending an employee around the stadium to relay stolen signals. "I don't think I'd single those two guys out, I think there's a bunch of guys we need to get going, and we will". The Dodgers earned their fifth extra-inning playoff victory in franchise history and their first since winning Game 4 of the 1988 NLCS against the New York Mets. He issued one walk and struck out eight.

"No, I just go and execute pitches", Miley said. With Chris Taylor at the plate and Corbin Burnes on the mound, Machado signaled to Taylor.

Liverpool, Manchester City are laughing at Manchester United, says Paul Scholes
You can see why that would be grating for one of the Premier League's top attacking talents; a player like Sanchez is hardly going to feel appreciated if he's being praised for being a workhorse more than for what he's good at.

With a runner on first and one out in the third in Game 5, Woodruff drew a five-pitch walk from a visibly annoyed Kershaw, who couldn't hit his spots. Manager Craig Counsell started Miley for one hitter in Game 5 before hooking him for reliever Brandon Woodruff, a move created to deceive Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts into stacking his lineup with right-handed hitters who no longer held a matchup advantage. But there have been at least as many bad ones (Game 6 of the NLCS against the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013, Game 1 of the NLDS against the Cardinals in 2014, Game 5 of the World Series against the Astros in 2017).

Muncy grounded a 1-2 pitch from Brandon Woodruff into left field, scoring Turner, who led off with a single. He started Games 2 and 3 and came off the bench in the 11th inning on Tuesday for Milwaukee.

The sellout crowd of 53,764 was considerably noisier than on Monday, when Enrique Hernandez criticized Dodgers fans for being too quiet.

Saudis know they must act fast on Khashoggi probe, says Pompeo
Khashoggi had fled the country past year amid the rise of Prince Mohammed, whom he wrote critically about in the Post . How is Turkey's investigation progressing? It's unclear if Turkey offered him the chance to hear any such recordings.

Curtis Granderson hit an RBI double in the ninth. He says the Dodgers' play in Game 1 was "unacceptable" and the Brewers "put us against the wall early and never looked back!"

The three-time NL Cy Young Award victor pitched in and out of trouble in the third, when the Brewers loaded the bases and scored their lone run.

Among those who have logged at least 1,500 innings for the Dodgers, he ranks second to Jeff Pfeffer - a man who pitched before the Great Depression - with a 2.39 ERA. The Dodgers will not see Hill until the World Series or as an emergency reliever in a game seven situation.
