All three of Aguilar's RBIs came on a pair of two-out hits, helping Milwaukee force their first seventh game in a while. Their last win-or-go-home contest in a Postseason series came in the 1982 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. That was their only Fall Classic appearance, but they are now just one win away from another one this season.
David Freese led off the game with a home run in the first inning, as the Dodgers looked to be well on their way to a third straight win in the series. They are looking to return to the World Series for a second straight season, as the Boston Red Sox are awaiting the winner of this series for the opening game of the World Series on Tuesday night.
Milwaukee made the surprise move of giving star reliever Josh Hader the night off, leaving him available for Saturday's Game 7, as Jeremy Jeffress and Corey Knebel led the charge out of the bullpen for Milwaukee. Wade Miley pitched in to the fifth inning in technically his second straight start, although, he faced just one batter and walked Cody Bellinger to lead off Game 5. Knebel got the win for the Brewers, while Corbin Burnes threw a hitless ninth inning to extend his team's season for at least one more day.
The Dodgers sent Hyun-Jin Ryu to the hill, but the starter was charged for four runs, all in the first inning, giving his team no chance to silent the Brewers' home momentum. Los Angeles will send Walker Buehler to the hill for Saturday night's Game 7, as he will be opposed by Jhoulys Chacin for the Brew-Crew. The Red Sox are set to send Chris Sale and David Price at one of these two teams in the first two games of the World Series.
