Ryan Braun glided over the house plates and raised his arms in delight.
A big lead, a bleeding bullpen and an exuberant crowd have prepared the Milwaukee Brewers for Game 7.
Jesus Aguilar unleashed Milwaukee's Slumps on two hits with three RBIs, and the Brewers defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-2 on Friday night to even reach the NL Championship Series in three games.
"I don & # 39; remember me, the most important thing at the end of the day is sweepstakes," said Aguilar, who only had two runs in the playoffs. "Tomorrow may be somebody else, tonight I was."
Game 7 is Saturday night, before the same insane crowd that Manny Machado boasted loudly after tangling with Aguilar while the series was in Los Angeles. The Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler faces the journeyman Jhoulys Chacin, and Josh Hader is after a surprise day at the Bullpen for Milwaukee.
It's the first game 7 for the Brewers since they lost to St. Louis in 1
"I have to get them tomorrow, we have one more game," Machado said. "They played good baseball today, so we just have to play better tomorrow."
David Freese ran 6 in a home race that calmed down Miller Park – but only for a moment.
Supported by noisy fans waving yellow towels that read "A TOUGH CREW," Milwaukee bounced off of consecutive losses at Dodger Stadium using the same formula it used to win the NL Central during a breakout season.
Aguilar's and Company's timely hits produced an early lead and Corey Knebel and Jeremy Jeffress led the way in yet another shutdown performance of Milwaukee's hard bullpen.
"Everyone, everywhere, anytime," Knebel said. "We are ready to go."
Los Angeles sought its second NL pennant and some time to prepare for the mighty Boston Red Sox in the World Series. But the lost pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu was tagged in the first inning for four runs, two on a double by Aguilar, who sent Braun home.
After Wade Miley crashed into fifth inning on the second start, he saw only one dough in Game 5 – Gag, Jeffress and Corbin Burnes closed it with shockless relief. Knebel won the race and Burnes pulled back the Dodgers to hold a wild party for the 43,619 crowd on the ninth round.
Manager Craig Counsell considered bringing Hader into the last sixteen in particular, but Aguilar scored on a wild turf in seventh and singles in Lorenzo Cain in eighth. The extra room helped Counsell give Hader another rest day. The Rocket Protector has not pitched since Tuesday in Game 4.
"At best, safe for us," Counsell said.
Freese drove in both races for the Dodgers. The rest of the lineup in Los Angeles only managed three measly singles. Chased all night by Boos, Machado went for four with two strikeouts.
"Do you know what? I focus on the game," Machado said. "Try to drive tone by tone, run in runs, do what we can do on the field, we did not run today."
The 35-year-old Freese was a surprising choice for the leadoff hitter of Dave Roberts, and he made his manager look pretty good as he started the game right in the middle
Freese also joined the first inning of the former NLCS Game 6 at Milwaukee and helped the Cardinals, the 2011 pennant to win. It was just his fourth time in the starting eleven in his 10 years in the majors.
But the brewers put together a quick response that set the tone for the rest of the night. With runners on the first and second in the lower half of the first, Aguilar put a double over the right corner.
Mike Moustakas followed with another RBI double, scoring Erik Kratz's single to make it 4-1. The Brewers only managed three runs in the previous two games in Los Angeles.
"It was huge to be able to respond to Homer in the first inning," Moustakas said. Four would stand up and give us a lot of self-confidence. "
Christian Yelich and Braun allied in the second round for another run with doubles, and then Roberts and Counsell became a matter of concern Strategy with Game 7 on Deck  Roberts took starter Rich Hill in the eighth when Kenta Maeda struggled to stay away from key reliever Pedro Baez and closer Kenley Jansen. Counsell stayed with Knebel for five outs, gave him his first pro-plate appearance with the bases loaded in the fifth – he stroked – and Burnes worked two perfect innings.
"There's the thought of trying to pin your to the first inning or the second inning, but there may be significant cost for a possible 7 game," Roberts said. "I just felt that we needed to get some more innings from Hyun-Jin to keep our guys with the highest leverage available for a possible Game 7."
