NLDS Game 1 Box Score

The Milwaukee Brewers blew a 2-0 ninth inning lead after winning a initial 8 innings, permitting a Colorado Rockies to tie a diversion and send it additional innings, though came behind to travel off a Rox 3-2 in a bottom of a tenth. With a diversion tied during dual in a tenth, Christian Yelich led off with a travel (the Rockies have schooled fast to not representation to a Brewers’ right fielder), and took second on a furious representation by Rockies’ reliever Adam Ottavino. Ryan Braun struck out on a tough slider, Travis Shaw was intentionally walked, and splash hitter Curtis Granderson’s grounder adult a core took Trevor Story usually distant adequate divided from second that all a Rockies could get was a force out of Shaw. That brought adult Mike Moustakas, and rather than representation around him or travel him intentionally, Ottavino went right after him with fastballs. On an 0-2 count Moose hardly survived when his tainted tip wasn’t held, and afterwards he lined a subsequent fastball into right for a diversion winner.

The diversion saw a Brewers’ bullpen gambit work to soundness until a ninth inning. Four Brewer relievers (Brandon Woodruff as ‘opener’ for 3 innings, Corbin Burnes for two, Corey Knebel for 1.2, and Josh Hader for 1.1) got Milwaukee to a ninth with usually one strike and dual walks allowed, though a tough ninth for Jeremy Jeffress sent a diversion into additional frames. Well, one additional frame.

The Brewers had bottom runners in a initial dual innings, though couldn’t pull anything across. Ryan Braun had a dual out bottom strike on a belligerent into left, and took second on a Rockies’ starter Antonio Senzatela furious pitch. Travis Shaw walked, and with Jesus Aguilar during a image Senzatela uncorked another furious pitch. Catcher Chris Ianetta couldn’t immediately commend where a round went, and Braun attempted to measure all a approach from second. He was out easily, and with Aguilar adult it was a extraordinary preference by Braun, during best.

Manny Pina had a dual out bloop singular down a right margin line in a second, though he was erased on a fielder’s choice grounder by Orlando Arcia to finish a inning.

Woodruff was scarcely ideal by his 3 innings. He walked DJ LeMahieu with one down in a first, though he was thrown out perplexing to take with dual out and David Dahl during a plate. Dahl had taken round 3 to pierce to a full count as LeMahieu was thrown out.

Over-all, Woody worked 3 innings with no hits, a walk, and 3 strikeouts. That continues a really good widen given his Sep call-up.

Milwaukee pennyless by in a bottom of a third, and it’s no warn that a revelation blow was struck by Yelich. Domingo Santana led off a inning with an infield cocktail that contingency have narrowly missed a roof during Miller Park. Lorenzo Cain drew a walk, and Yeli took a initial representation change-up out to core for a 2-0 lead.

Corbin Burnes took over on a mountain for a Brewers and late a initial 5 he faced before Carlos Gonzalez pulled a two-out triple down a right margin line for Colorado’s initial hit. It took Burnsey one representation to get out of a jam, removing Ian Desmond on a tapper behind to a mound.

Corey Knebel worked 1.2 innings with a walk, though a walkee (Ryan McMahon) was thrown out perplexing to take to finish a sixth. McMahon was creatively called safe, though examination showed him clearly out, and a call was overturned. Corey got a initial dual in a tip of a seventh, and with left handed attack David Dahl adult Craig Counsell went with Josh Hader. Dahl struck out overhanging for a third out.

Josh also had a 1-2-3 eighth with dual some-more strikeouts in a tip of a eighth.

Milwaukee squandered scoring opportunities in a bottoms of a sixth, seventh, and eighth innings, and it cost them. Yelich led off a sixth with an infield hit, and Ryan Braun followed with a ship that went off a leaping Ian Desmond’s glove during initial bottom and into right. Yelich suspicion that Desmond held a round and went behind to first, and was an easy force out during second from rightfielder David Dahl. Instead of initial and second with nobody out, it was initial and one out, and Shaw strike into a fielder’s choice, followed by a called third strike to Aguilar.

A one out travel to Pina and singular to right by Arcia put runners during initial and third in a seventh, though Hernan Perez’ fist bunt went tainted before he struck out, as did Lo Cain.

In a eighth Yelich walked heading off a inning opposite lefty Harrison Musgrove, and stole second with Braun up. Braunie singled off of Aranado’s glove, though Yeli had to reason and usually done it to third. With initial and third and nobody out, Shaw took a called third strike, Keon Broxton got to a 3-1 count before fanning, and Braun stole second during a during bat. Mike Moustakas was walked intentionally to bucket them up, and Scott Oberg came on to retire Pina on a fielder’s choice grounder to short. Still 2-0 into a ninth.

Then came a really Cardinal-esque ninth inning convene for a Rockies in a tip of a ninth. Jeremy Jeffress was on for a save, and didn’t demeanour as pointy as towards a finish of a season. Gerardo Para singled to right, and Matt Holiday (ex-Cardinal…coincidence?…I consider not) grounded a double play grounder that went where no fielders were for a bottom hit. First and second, nobody out. Yikes.

Charlie Blackmon pulled a ship down a right margin line that bounced in tainted domain and over a wall. Except a referee WHO’S ONLY JOB IS TO CALL BALLS FAIR OR FOUL DOWN THE LINE missed it and called it fair. That was fast overturned on appeal, though Blackmon afterwards pulled a double play grounder that also avoided a infielders and went into rightfield for an RBI single. Nobody out, initial and second, 2-1.

DJ LeMahieu strike a delayed drum that Arcia misplayed for an blunder that installed a bases, and Nolan Arenado strike a feeble located 0-2 fastball for a weal fly to center, restraining a diversion during two. David Dahl’s bouncer to initial resulted in an out around outline on Blackmon off of third, and Trevor Story struck out on 3 true curves to send it to a bottom of a ninth.

Adam Ottavino had a bottom of a ninth, and done discerning work of a bottom of a sequence and Cain.

Joakim Soria took over for a tenth and had a 1-2-3 inning that got increasingly frightful as a inning went along. Gonzalez struck out, Desmond lined out to third on a round with an exit velo of 109 mph, and afterwards Parra flew out to a wall in right. Good thing they didn’t get 4 outs.

The Crew afterwards available their walk-off bottom of a tenth, and a Crew was adult 1-0 in games on their 3-2 win.

Tomorrow afternoon brings diversion two, and Milwaukee goes for a dual to nothing lead. Jhoulys Chacin (15-8, 3.50 reg. season) will start for a Brewers opposite Tyler Anderson (7-9, 4.55) for Colorado.

Game Notes:

  • The opener devise worked perfectly, until it didn’t.
  • Through 8 innings a Rockies had one strike and dual walks. The dual that walked were held stealing, so a Rockies had left one on base.
  • Christian Yelich. Oh my. Five image appearances, dual hits, dual walks, dual runs scored, dual RBI, and a homer. MVP of a NLDS, anyone?
  • The coop has been used utterly a bit…I’d wish for 5 innings from Chacin tomorrow, and 3 from Gio Gonzalez, and lots of runs for a Brewers. Fingers crossed.
  • The Brewers had authorised 7 homers to Trevor Story during a unchanging season, though was 0-4 with 3 strikeouts today.
