The Brew-Crew fell behind 2-0 early on with Clayton Kershaw on the mound, but they were able to rally in the sixth inning to tie things up. Christian Yelich had the game-tying solo shot, before Manny Pina scored on an errant throw from Max Muncy at third base to put Milwaukee ahead. Keon Broxton would go on to triple home an insurance run, while Milwaukee kept the Dodgers scoreless after the first inning.
Another headline on the night was Josh Hader's first appearance on the mound since the controversial tweets from his past were brought up. The reliever was forced to take sensitivity training after racial/anti-gay tweets were brought up from when he was 17 years old. He has since apologized, and returned on Saturday to strike out four over two innings, including striking out the side in the eighth inning. The Brewers' bullpen as a whole threw five scoreless innings in the win.
Corey Knebel was a part of that as well, working the ninth inning to seal things up. He did allow a two-out single to Logan Forsythe, before getting Manny Machado to ground out and end the game, recording his 12th save of the season.
Kershaw dropped to 3-5 after allowing four runs, only one earned, on seven hits over six innings. It was his first loss since April 25th ,which spanned just eight starts due to his time spent on the disabled list. Chris Taylor drove in both runs on the night for the Dodgers with a two-run single in the first inning. The rubber game of this series will take place on Sunday.
