Their rally started in the seventh, as they scored twice on an RBI single from Cody Bellinger and then a bases loaded walk, but that rally fell short. An inning later is when Turner stepped up in a major way, going deep against All-Star reliever Jeremy Jeffress. The Brewers' bullpen spoiled a terrific start from Wade Miley, as Milwaukee suffered defeat for the first time since September 22nd. In that span, they have taken Game 163 for the NL Central Division Title against the Chicago Cubs, swept the Colorado Rockies in the NLDS, and took Game 1, 6-5, from the Dodgers on Friday night.
Miley lasted 5.2 innings and did not allow a run in just his second-career Postseason start, while also getting things done at the plate. The former Arizona Diamondback and Baltimore Oriole had two hits with the bat for his first multi-hit game since 2014. Orlando Arcia and Travis Shaw both went deep, while Lorenzo Cain robbed David Freese of a homer, but the Brewers saw their 12-game win streak come to an end.
Bellinger's RBI single came off of reliever Corbin Burnes and snapped an 0-for-15 slide for the Dodgers' first baseman, as Austin Barnes drew a bases loaded walk to pull his team within one. Although, Yasmani Grandal could not come through, grounding in to an inning-ending double play. Turner got the momentum back on the Dodgers' side, as he overcame a four-strikeout performance in Game 1.
The series will shift to Dodger Stadium for Game 3 on Monday night, as Jhoulys Chacin and Walker Buehler will match up on the mound.
