MLB Baseball: Milwaukee Brewers @ Los Angeles Dodgers – Game 3
We now enter game 3 with the series tied up 1-1 between the Brewers and Dodgers. Dodgers came away with a victory late in game 2 to tie the series, but it has really been the Brewers who have been the talk of the playoffs. The only fault you can currently find in their game is in their bullpen, but even that has been a healthy surprise for the team.
Chacin will be taking the mound for the Brewers, and the Dodgers should be no mystery to him as he gave up 9 runs against the Dodgers back in August on a start. With that said, his last start was against the Rockies in the NLDS where he put together quite an impressive performance.The good thing for Chacin going into tonight, he has a very well-rested bull pen behind him tonight, not that, that means much at this moment where the Brewers bull pen has been their current weakness outside of Hader, who did not pitch in game 2.
The Dodgers sparked up some offense in game 2, primarily from Justin Turner, and for them to be successful will have to do something similar if they want to get past this Brewers squad. Expect some low scoring until the Brewers get Chacin off the mound, once that happens, the Dodgers have confidence against the Brewers relief. Walker Buehler is taking the mound for the Dodgers, and has arguably been the Dodgers best pitcher this season. He looked a little shaky in his first playoff start…we can’t blame him as he is a rookie, but hopefully for the Dodgers sake he got all the nerves out of his system.
This game is extremely important, if the Dodgers can capitalize on the home field, it sets them up in an advantageous position moving forward in the series, as it would anyone. Dodgers cannot show weakness at home. The Brewers have looked great in the post season so far, and to steal one in Dodgers stadium will boost morale and confidence like no other. They could close out a series at home if they can steal one on the road.
