Six games have been played in the National League
Championship Series ,
and nothing has been decided between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Milwaukee
Brewers.The two teams will meet in Game 7 of NLCS at Miller Park in Milwaukee
Saturday night at 8:09 p.m. ET, as the Brewers recorded an impressive 7-2
victory in Game 6 to keep their season alive. The series finale will be
televised by FS1.David Freese opened Game 6 with a home run for the Dodgers, but
the Brewers dominated in all areas after that point. The NL Central champions
responded with four runs in the bottom of the first inning and starter Wade
Miley and series of Milwaukee relief pitchers kept the Dodgers from getting
close after that.NLCS ScheduleGame 1: Brewers 6, Dodgers 5Game 2: Dodgers 4,

, at 8:09p.m. ET on FS1 Miley pitched 4.1 innings and
allowed five hits and two runs before manager Craig Counsell brought in Corey
Knebel to stop the Dodgers from putting a rally together. Knebel pitched 1.2
innings and struck out two batters and did not allow a hit.Jeremy Jeffress
pitched a perfect seventh inning before rookie Corbin Burnes retired the Dodgers
three-up, three-down in both the eighth and ninth innings.Perhaps the most
significant aspect of the game鈥攐ther than squaring the series at 3-3鈥攚as that
the Brewers did not have to use ace reliever Josh Hader.The Dodgers had closed
to 5-2, but the Brewers tacked on a run in the seventh and another in the
eighth, and Counsell was able to save Hader and have him at full rest for
Saturday's finale.SportsNet LA SportsNetLAHear from #Dodgers manager Dave
Roberts about managing tonights game and how the team will approach Game 7 in
Milwaukee. fE0VdcH3CiLos Angeles manager Dave Roberts understood the
significance of not forcing the Brewers to use Hader. "You would have liked to
have kept the game close enough to make them use him tonight," Roberts said at
his postgame press conference. "Because of the run differential, they didn't
have to use him."Counsell called not having to use Hader as "the best case
scenario."The Dodgers will send pitcher Walker Buehler to the mound for the
decisive game, and the Brewers will counter with Jhoulys Chacin. Those two
hooked up in Los Angeles in Game 3, and the Brewers came out on top in that game
by a 4-0 score.Chacin has not allowed a run in the postseason in 10.1 innings
and has held opponents to a .162 average. Buehler has a 6.75 earned-run average
and has allowed nine earned runs in 12.0 innings. Despite those difficulties,
Buehler has struck out 15 hitters and opponents are hitting .182 off of him.The
Brewers got clutch hits from Ryan Braun, Jesus Aguilar ,
Mike Moustakas and Erik Kratz in the first inning. That took the pressure off of
the home team and allowed them to dictate the pace of Game 6.After that, the
Brewers fans roared their approval for the rest of the game and helped pushed
their team into a seventh meeting.PredictionThe Brewers had a double victory in
Game 6 as they won decisively and did not have to use their ace relief
pitcher.Hader has been the most dominant relief pitcher in the postseason, and
Counsell will have a chance to use him for multiple innings in the seventh game.
That has to give the Brewers manager an extra dose of confidence, and it will
also cause anxiety for Roberts.Combine that with Chacin's proven ability to shut
down Dodgers hitters and a rejuvenated Milwaukee batting order and the Brewers
have the advantage.The Dodgers are a proven team that made it through to the
World Series last year, and they will not be intimidated.This will be a tight,
low-scoring game, and Brewers will win with a late run, possibly in extra
innings.The Brewers win the National League pennant and will play the mighty
Boston Red Sox in the World Series.NLCS tickets can be purchased throughStubHub.
New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregoriussuffered torn cartilage in his wrist
while sliding during Saturday's game, per Lindsey Adler of The
Athletic.According to Adler, manager Aaron Boone said he is "unsure" whether
Gregorius will be able to return this season following an MRI and cortisol
treatment Sunday.Gregorius Hyun-Jin

.268with 27homers and 86RBI from his shortstop position. He has now posted three
straight seasons with at least 20 home runs and 70 RBI.While he's generally been
healthy in 2018,Gregorius did have a stint on the disabled list in late August
with aleft heel contusion."Obviously, Didi is so important to what we do, he's
such an important player to us, the middle of our lineup, the middle of our
field鈥攈e's kind of our quarterback out there," Boone said at the time, per Coley
Harvey of "He does so many things intangibly well that we certainly
will miss him. But we also feel like we have the people capable of stepping up
for him while he's down."The Yankees have been hit with a spate of injuries late
in the regular season Jose

, withGregorius, Aroldis Chapman, Aaron Judge,
Gary Sanchez and CC Sabathia all being forced to the disabled list
simultaneouslyat one point.InGregorius' absence, the Yankees may be forced to
shuffle their starting lineup.Gleyber Torres will likely transition to
shortstop, while Neil Walker will likely split second base base duties with
utility infielderRonald Torreyes.
