The Dodgers trimmed a three-run deficit to one in the seventh, getting an RBI single by Cody Bellinger - his first hit in 16 at-bats this postseason - and a bases-loaded walk by Austin Barnes. Milwaukee is 7-2 in its last nine playoff home games.

"He got lucky", Jeffress told reporters.

"I knew he could swing the bat a little bit, for sure", Kershaw said. "Got the ball up". Pedro Baez got four outs for the win, and Kenley Jansen worked the ninth for the save.

"I was just trying to elevate, get something in the air", Turner said.

When the series shifts to Dodger Stadium next week, the southern California native will be playing in a park where he used to watch games as a child.

Miley was pulled two outs into the sixth with a 2-0 lead after allowing the first of Taylor's two hits.

"You want to stay out there, but that's the route we've taken all year", Miley told reporters.

Burnes got Turner to line out to center field to end the inning.

Manager Dave Roberts on Thursday night said lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu will be his Game 2 starter. Jeremy Jeffress came back out for the Brewers to begin the eighth and saw leadoff hitter Chris Taylor reach with an infield single. Ryan Braun hit a soft grounder to shortstop Manny Machado, who only had a play at first base, and that allowed Miley to sprint home to make it 2-0 Milwaukee. The Brewers have kept their starters' outings short all season, choosing to rely on one of the game's best bullpens and it's been no different in the postseason as no Milwaukee starter has worked more than five innings, including a three-inning stint by Brandon Woodruff as part of a "bullpen day" in Game 1 of the NLDS against Colorado.

Game 5 - Wednesday, 2 p.m.: Milwaukee (TBA) at Dodgers (TBA).

Game two of the best-of-seven series is Sunday, with Boston left-hander David Price trying to end his postseason skid against Astros righty Gerrit Cole.

"We made a choice basically to add another pitcher, because it could be a seven-game series", manager Craig Counsell said. Kershaw minimized the damage by striking out Mike Moustakas, stranding two runners in scoring position and leading to his emotional display as he headed toward the dugout. So they've been about as close as they can be. We're loving the run the Brewers are on and can't wait to experience each game and are looking forward to our next bullpen session.

Just when it seemed the Dodgers were headed for their second straight loss, the lineup woke up against the Brewers' vaunted bullpen.
