Dodgers' Fans Boo Grandal, Barnes To Start In Game 4

The Brewers have one of the best bullpens in baseball, but it's the rotation that has produced unexpected heroes

The Brewers have one of the best bullpens in baseball, but it's the rotation that has produced unexpected heroes

In the postseason, Gonzalez appeared twice against the Los Angeles Dodgers, starting Game 1 and 4.

The Brewers managed just eight hits over 13 innings in their 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night, evening the NL Championship Series at 2 games apiece. 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. His Dodgers teammates sprinted from the third base dugout to join him.

Machado's base-running was an issue in Game 3, when a replay review indicated he violated the Utley rule in sliding through second base in an attempt to break up a double play.

"I've never given excuses for not running, " he said. "I thought they would pitch around me and get me to swing".

For those of you who might have actually gone to sleep before the end of the game, which came around 2:25 a.m., the best and worst of Machado was on display well after midnight.

On Wednesday, the Dodgers will try to move within one victory of their second consecutive World Series berth. In the first four games of the series, he has a.353 average (6-for-17) with a homer and three RBIs.

Brewers players were quick to defend Aguilar - and point fingers at Machado.

Christian Yelich was the most agitated, blurting out "f-k that motherf-ker" after answering questions at his locker about Machado, who has a history of aggressive play on the bases. Yelich said if a play like that happened one time from Machado it might be considered an accident, but he sees it as a pattern. It's a dirty play by a dirty player, and that's what it is.

Asked repeatedly about the wild pitch that led to a run in Game 3, Grandal said: "I think it's driving you guys nuts more than it's driving me".

"We're good for sure", Aguilar said. He knew that team would lose and they would lose whether or not he ran out a grounder. Hill was making his first appearance in the NLCS after starting the Dodgers on their way to the victory in the NLDS clincher at Atlanta on October 8.

"If they think that they can do it, then go ahead, put on your gear and go catch 99 with breaking balls that have a lot of movement", Hernandez said.

On Tuesday, Gonzalez lasted just one full inning, landing awkwardly on his ankle while attempting to field a comebacker from Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig in the second. The other was Johnny Cueto, who struck out the only batter he faced in Game 1 of the 2012 NLDS before leaving with back spasms.
