4 questionable Manny Machado plays from his career

"I think we gave each other a big hug", Bellinger said.

The controversial play on Tuesday night harked back to that play as well as his jog through the bag in Game 2. Game 6 of the NLCS will take place Friday at Milwaukee, with Game 7 on Saturday, if necessary.

After a quick turnaround, Game 5 in the best-of-seven series is Wednesday afternoon, with Wade Miley pitching for the Brewers on three days' rest against fellow lefty Clayton Kershaw. The Dodgers would have been forced to use Urias for at least one more inning and if not, it would have cost the team Hyun-Jin Ryu who has arguably been the team's best starter this season. "We've got some good contributions from guys at the bottom".

The Dodgers haven't been in back-to-back World Series since losing to the Yankees in 1977 and '78. But if nothing else, the move briefly jolted the game off-balance; it's certainly something to talk about, even if it's not seen for another 94 years. Brewers manager Craig Counsell was asked after Game 4 whether Machado was going beyond the grounds of playing hard and responded by saying: "I don't think he's playing all that hard". Lorenzo Cain followed with an RBI double off the wall in center field.

Despite being at 98 pitches, Kershaw was allowed to bat for himself with one out in the seventh inning. The investigation ramped up after the Houston employee appeared to be shooting video from the photographer area next to the dugout of the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. With fans on their feet, pinch-hitter Travis Shaw struck out with a runner on third to end the inning. Ryan Braun worked a walk to load the bases with two outs but Kershaw escaped the jam by striking out Jesús Aguilar.

Brewers star Christian Yelich, who almost won the NL Triple Crown this season, was hitless in four at-bats.

Through four games in the NLCS, Machado is hitting.353 with three RBI.

After he got two hits in Game 3, Machado's frustration at the plate also probably played a role in his mood in Game 4.

Tied 1-all, Muncy grounded a 1-2 pitch from Brandon Woodruff into left field, scoring Justin Turner, who led off with a single. Kershaw allowed four earned runs in three innings, in what was the shortest playoff start of his career. Yasiel Puig's pinch-hit RBI single extended the Dodgers' lead 3-1.

Milwaukee had gone scoreless over the final eight innings Tuesday and the first two innings Wednesday.

This is an embarrassing showing from their fanbase with a trip to the World Series on the line.

-The Brewers altered their postseason roster and replaced injured starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez with right-hander Zach Davies, meaning Gonzalez can not appear in the World Series should the team advance.
