Woodruff draws walk from Kershaw; Brewers get on board

After Orlando Arcia whacked his sixth hit of the series, pitcher Brandon Woodruff drew a walk from Clayton Kershaw. Leadoff hitter Lorenzo Cain cashed that break in immediately. Cain drove a ball over the head of center fielder Cody Bellinger for a double that gave the Brewers a 1-0 lead in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series.

Woodruff homered off Kershaw in Game 1 of the series, a 6-5 Brewers win.

Christian Yelich struck out for the second out of the inning, and Ryan Braun drew a walk to load the bases.

But the Brewers failed to add to the lead as Jesus Aguilar lost a battle with Kershaw and struck out after fouling off four two-strike pitches.
