Los Angeles Dodgers
Throughout the series it seemed like the Dodgers were going to topple but now they are on the verge of advancing to the World Series, needing just one more win against a scrappy Brewers team.
Based on what we have seen it is hard to know what to expect from that game other than we won’t see Clayton Kershaw on the mound…I don’t think, I suppose anything is possible.
I was going to see how Wade Miley has done against this lineup in the past but it might not even matter after what we saw in game five. This has been a great series.
I feel mostly confident that the Dodgers are going to let Ryu pitch in this one. The reality is that he is good hitter and the position they are in means that they can be more patient than they have been for most of the series.
Kershaw pitched great to get the Dodgers to an elimination game but they still had to use key relievers to close it out. If they have the lead again I think they will do the same because you never know when you are going to be in that spot, but they could be a little winded.
Milwaukee’s season has advanced further than most but they are in this thing to win it, at least I think they are. Of course that is an exaggeration but I am not sure the gamesmanship of having Miley pitch to one batter made much sense.
Obviously it is easy to question the game but if you are going to use a guy to get one guy out it just makes more sense to me for that to be in a more high leverage situation.
This has been a resilient group all season long. They are at home and are facing no tomorrow. I think it will motivate them and this feels like why they got a guy like Cain.
Is the announcement of Wade Miley another fakeout by the Brewers? Does it even make a difference?
The simple fact is that the Brewers need strong pitching if they are going to advance. They lost game five because they were outpitched and the only thing I think we know for sure is that Brandon Woodruff seems like a long shot.
Which is a shame because he has been so good.
Josh Hader did not throw at all though so expect to see him at some point.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
I like the Brewers a lot but most of the time I have backed them in the playoffs it was because the value just made it too obvious to do so, at least to me. This time they are barely an underdog and having to back Miley is not very enticing.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 8
A tight game definitely makes for more drama but I feel like this one might not play out like that. I see one team jumping on the starters and then adding a little more late. I want it to be Milwaukee so we get a game seven but I am comfortable with this play either way.
