Enrique Hernandez calls out Dodgers fans for lack of energy

Enrique Hernandez knows his Los Angeles Dodgers need to play better in the NLCS, and he also wants the team’s fans to do better as well. Hernandez was 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout and was replaced as part of a double-switch in the Dodgers’ 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 3 of the NLCS on Monday. After the game, he defended teammate Yasmani Grandal over the boos the catcher received from the fans. In the process Hernandez said Dodgers fans had no energy. The problem here...

Dodgers can’t take advantage of opportunities, drop Game 3

The late-inning magic the Dodgers have enjoyed over the first two games of the NLCS refused to show its face Monday night. Instead it was the Brewers increasing their lead to four in the seventh with a two-run shot from Orlando Arcia.

Time ran out for the Dodgers in the eighth when Brewers’ manager Craig Counsell went to his biggest weapon, Josh Hader. The lefty flamethrower came in to get the final two outs of the eighth, handing it off to Jeremy Jeffress to lock down the 4-0 win in the...

Twitter reacts to Cody Bellinger's epic bat toss

Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger is slumping and slumping in a big way in the postseason. With the Dodgers trailing 4-0 to the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 3 of the NLCS, Bellinger came to the plate with two on and nobody out against struggling Milwaukee closer Jeremy Jeffress. But Bellinger bailed Jeffress out, swinging at the first pitch and flying out to center. He did unleash a rather impressive bat toss, though. That caught the eye of the people on Twitter. The runners ended up...

Playoff beast Orlando Arcia hits another big home run for Brewers

Orlando Arcia continues to be a beast in the playoffs for Milwaukee. Arcia ripped Los Angeles Dodgers starter Walker Buehler for a 2-run home run in the top of the 7th inning of NLCS Game 3 on Monday. He took an 0-1 fastball from Buehler out of the park to right field to give the Brewers a 4-0 lead. The Milwaukee shortstop only had three home runs in the regular season, and he has matched that total in the postseason. He homered in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Colorado Rockies and in...

Slight changes for both teams with Game 3 lineups

LOS ANGELES — After facing left-handed pitchers in each of the first two games, a pair of right-handers take the mound for Game 3 of the NLCS in Walker Buehler and Jhoulys Chacin. As a result, the lineups for the Dodgers and Brewers have changed a bit.

The right-handed version of the lineup is similar to what the Dodgers have used in the last couple months, except that Max Muncy and Justin Turner were swapped near the top. Turner slides into the third spot in the order, moving Muncy up...

Remembering Kirk Gibon’s walk-off home run 30 years later

On October 15, 1988, Kirk Gibson delivered one of the most iconic moments in baseball history. Down to his final strike, Gibson homered to right field, giving the Dodgers a 5-4 victory over the Oakland A’s in the World Series.

On this day in 1988, Kirk Gibson hit his iconic World Series walk-off HR when he could barely walk.

NLCS Podcast: Recapping the first 2 games

This week on the podcast we phoned it in. Literally. Travel schedules disrupted our normal recording procedure but we made it work with a call, recapping the unexpected outcomes of the first two games of the NLCS in Milwaukee.

There was Clayton Kershaw allowing a home run to a pitcher, a left-handed one at that, and the Brewers bullpen morphing from the Brewers’ greatest strength to their weakness in the first two games of the series. Also, Alex Wood allowed no home runs to lefties during...

Dodgers turn to Walker Buehler for Game 3

LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers and Brewers shift to Dodger Stadium for Game 3 of the NLCS on Monday night, with Walker Buehler making his second career postseason start.

Buehler will turn the page on his first taste of the playoffs, giving up five runs to the Braves in Game 3 of the NLDS. The rookie temporarily lost the strike zone, walked the opposing pitcher with the bases loaded and gave up a grand slam for a quick 5-0 deficit.

The calm demeanor Buehler has become known for in his short...

Dodgers take huge split back to L.A.

The Milwaukee Brewers could be up 2-0 in the NLCS. But with one swing of the bat, Justin Turner would change all that. Now the Dodgers have their split as they get ready for three straight in L.A., starting Monday night. After striking out four times and recording an error in Game 1, Turner would make Dodgers fans forget about all that. Following the loss, Milwaukee fans didn’t stop questioning manager Craig Counsell’s decision to pull Wade Miley with two outs in the sixth. After all, he...

Vin Scully turns down invite to return to booth for NLCS

Despite Joe Buck’s best efforts to lure him back into the broadcasting booth, Vin Scully is staying happily retired. During Saturday’s NLCS Game 2 between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Milwaukee Brewers, Buck, who is the lead announcer for FOX Sports, said on the air that he was hoping Scully might join him in the booth when the series returned to Dodger Stadium. On Sunday, Scully responded to the overture. “I don’t want to just take a bow,” said the 90-year-old sportscasting...

Ryan Braun could have been a Dodger in 2016, with Puig as the return

With the Dodgers and Brewers facing off in the NLCS, MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy looks back to 2016 at the potential blockbuster deal between the two clubs that would’ve sent Ryan Braun to Los Angeles. The rebuilding Brew Crew were exploring ways to get Braun’s big contract off the books, and the Dodgers were a natural trade partner, given their large payroll and the fact that they were one of six teams that Braun (a Southern California native) didn’t have on his no-trade list. The...

The Dodgers have had the better bullpen so far

Coming into the series, the Brewers bullpen was one of the biggest headlines. Led by Josh Hader, Milwaukee was among one of the best bullpens in all of baseball during the 2018 season. With the Dodgers having the edge in starting pitching, Milwaukee was expected to have the upper hand with their bullpen.

Ironically through two games, the Dodgers have had the better bullpen, where as the Brewers have had the better starting pitching.

During the season, Milwaukee’s bullpen possessed a 3.47...

Watch: Drunk Brewers fan kisses reporter during live shot

It’s a difficult job being a reporter, as they never really know what types of obstacles they might run into while doing their job. And these types of issues are magnified when alcohol is involved. FOX 6 News reporter Ashley Sears ran into that exact problem after Game 2 of the National League Championship Series was in the books. She was doing a live report from a bar, when a drunken female Brewers fan swooped in and gave her a kiss on the cheek. Sears clearly wasn’t happy about it....

Orioles legend critical of Manny Machado’s lack of hustle during NLCS

A Baltimore Orioles legend was critical of Manny Machado during Game 2 of the National League Championship Series over the shortstop’s apparent lack of hustle. During the fourth inning, Machado hit a ground ball to Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Orlando Arcia. Machado did not run out the ball, leading Hall of Famer Jim Palmer to call Machado’s actions “pathetic.” Machado’s lack of hustle was also noted by Jon Heyman, who pointed out teams are watching with Machado a free agent...

Justin Turner’s clutch home run evens the series

Justin Turner wasn’t about to squander another opportunity late in the game, representing the go-ahead run. Putting Friday night’s four-strikeout debacle behind him, the Dodgers’ third baseman dug in against Jeremy Jeffress with Chris Taylor on first and no outs in the eighth.

Down 3-2, Turner got a splitter on the inner half of the plate that he didn’t miss. When the ball came down in the left field stands, the Dodgers had a 4-3 lead they would not surrender, sending the series back...

Watch: Yasiel Puig breaks bat over knee after huge strikeout

Yasiel Puig is an intense and strong individual, and those traits came out after he came up short in a big spot during the seventh inning of Saturday’s NLCS Game 2. With the bases loaded and nobody out, Puig went reaching and struck out on a Jeremy Jeffress slider out of the zone for out No. 1. The outfielder’s inability to come up with even a sacrifice of some sort deeply frustrated him — so much so that he snapped his bat over his knee like it was little more than a twig. Puig...

Watch: Yasiel Puig snaps bat over knee after key strikeout

Yasiel Puig had a chance to put the Los Angeles Dodgers up in Game 2 of the NLCS against the Milwaukee Brewers, and he failed to do so. With the bases loaded in the top of the seventh inning, down by two runs, Puig struck out swinging. He then took out his frustration on his bat, which he snapped over his knee a la Bo Jackson. It’s been a frustrating series for Puig and the Dodgers, who are just a handful of outs away from falling into an 0-2 hole.
