Brandon Woodruff escaped a jame with runners on second and third with nobody out, and the Milwaukee Brewers go to the bottom of the ninth needing four runs to save their season.
They trail the Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-1, in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series.
Yasiel Puig, who delivered the big blow with a three-run homer in the sixth, led off with a single and moved to third on Chris Taylor’s double down the left-field line. After Austin Barnes grounded out with the infield in, the Brewers intentionally walked pinch-hitter Matt Kemp.
Woodruff struck out Kiki Hernandez for the second out and struck out Max Muncy after falling behind, 3-0.
