Dodgers reliever Ryan Madson retired Mike Moustakas and Erik Kratz for the first two outs of the seventh inning before Orlando Arcia’s single chased Madson.
With left-handed ace Clayton Kershaw still available, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts brought on closer Kenley Jansen for what might be a seven-out save.
Jansen struck out pinch-hitter Curtis Granderson on a pitch in the dirt for the final out.
The Brewers trail, 5-1, in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series. The winner advances to the World Series against the Boston Red Sox.
