Wade Miley surrendered a first-inning run in what was a must-win game for his Milwaukee Brewers. His teammates picked him up by scoring four in the bottom half of the inning. Miley settled in after that, giving the Brewers five innings of two-run ball. Milwaukee’s bullpen took over from there.
The Brewers responded well to returning home. After scoring four quick runs off of Dodgers’ starter Hyun-Jin Ryu, their pitching took over and the offense continued to tack on.
Game 7 begins at 5:09 MST with the Dodgers sending Walker Buehler to the mound to fane Jhoulys Chacin and the Brewers
Boston awaits the winner of tonight’s decisive Game 7 in Milwaukee. If the Red Sox are looking for the “easier” path to the Commissioner’s Trophy, they’ll be rooting for the Brewers to send Dave Roberts and the Dodgers into the offseason.
This play that Joe West missed on is going to continue to be talked about for a while.
The Diamondbacks are likely paying close attention to this crop.
