Tonight the Milwaukee Brewers and the Los Angeles Dodgers continue the National League Championship Series with Game 3 at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers staged a late rally and Justin Turner hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning to lift them over the Brewers for a 4-3 victory that evened the NLCS at a game apiece.
Chacin looks for second win of the postseason
Jhoulys Chacin (15-8, 3.50 ERA, 1.16 WHIP) pitched well in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Rockies, throwing five scoreless innings of three-hit ball but he struggled in his only start of the season against the Dodgers, giving up nine runs (eight earned) on five hits (three home runs) and four walks with three strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings in a 21-5 loss on August 2. Chacin is 11-9 with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP in 26 career games (25 starts) against the Dodgers.
Buehler looking to get back on track
Walker Buehler (8-5, 2.62 ERA, 0.96 WHIP) had a rough outing in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Braves last Monday, allowing five earned runs on two hits (one home run) and three walks with seven strikeouts over five innings to get a no-decision in a 6-5 loss. Buehler was dominant in Game 163 against the Rockies, tossing 6 2/3 scoreless innings of one-hit ball and he pitched well in his only career start against the Brewers on July 31, when he tossed seven innings of one-run ball in an unfortunate 1-0 loss.
The Milwaukee Brewers are:
2-5 in their last seven National League Championship Series games
2-6 in their last eight postseason road games
The Los Angeles Dodgers are:
8-2 in their last 10 postseason home games
18-6 in their last 24 games overall
17-6 in their last 23 games against a team with a winning record
37-16 in their last 53 games following an off day
4-1 in Buehler's last five home starts against a team with a winning record
4-1 in Buehler's last five home starts
Jhoulys Chacin has an abysmal 6.13 ERA in his last eight starts against the Dodgers while Walker Buehler was phenomenal at Dodger Stadium this season, posting a dazzling 1.93 ERA and an 0.83 WHIP in 74 2/3 innings over 13 games (12 starts). The Brewers are a poor 2-for-16 with runners in scoring position in this series and keep an eye on Cody Bellinger, who is 5-for-12 with two home runs and five RBIs against Chacin and he finally got his first RBI of the postseason on Saturday.
