The Brewers have to be feeling great after game three. They got the win, shutout and they didn’t have to totally burn Josh Heder. Sure 11-0 looks better than 4-0 nothing but they have taken the advantage back in the series.
This postseason’s breakout star looks to be Milwaukee shortstop Orlando Arcia. He hit only three homers during the regular season and matched that in the postseason last night. They have all come in the last four games and he usually has the pitcher batting behind him so it is pretty impressive.
The current Brewers have a .293 average against Rich Hill so they should be alright tonight. Somehow lefty outfield has two dingers in six at bat against the lefty. Wonder if they will mix and match tonight.
I liked the addition of Gio Gonzalez from the Nats and he was good for Milwaukee down the stretch. He has made just one start for the Brewers in the playoffs and it was game one but he only pitched 2 innings. They pulled him even though the only damage was a homer by Manny Machado.
Gonzalez has good numbers against the Dodgers but Machado and Kemp have given him trouble in the past. Not so much for Justin Turner who is the real spark for this team. Heder should be able to contribute an inning if they need him. This game could be another bullpen battle.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Instead of taking control of the series the Dodgers lost game three and ceded any advantage they might have had after taking game two in Milwaukee. The lone positive is that Walker Buehler gave them 7 innings, striking out 8. The four runs was more than what he had yielded for most of the season but he was much better than in his last start.
Coming off the shutout the Dodgers have to be concerned about their offense. Per the above there are some hitters in the lineup who have had success against Gonzalez but the Dodgers need to be able to string together some hits and not be so reliant on the home run. Take a page from Houston I suppose.
Rich Hill has been a good playoff performer for the Dodgers in the past but was nothing special in his lone start in the last series against the Braves. They did win the game but he gave up a couple of runs over four innings. He walked five and was playing with fire throughout without really getting burned.
Pitching 7 innings, Buehler let the bullpen have a bit of a break yesterday. They are primed and ready for a game that is essentially a must win if they want to have any chance of advancing.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
It looks like the Dodgers might be cracking. Hill can pitch but I am not sure he is the guy to inspire them to victory in this spot.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Milwaukee ML
The Brewers should be a good value in this one as I think they will come off in the neighborhood of +130. I like the matchup and their ability to exploit L.A. if they get those Walks that Hill is prone to.
