Here is the AP summary of the game:
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Wade Miley threw only five squares in Game 5 of the NL Championship Series before Milwaukee's manager Craig Counsell from the Dodger Stadium dive appeared and broke off its starter. Oddly enough, five innings after this extraordinary piece of excuses, Counsell probably waited a bit too long to get back to his bullpen.
Brandon Woodruff threw 5 1
Counsell used his bullpen liberally and unconventionally during the brewers' remarkable season, and this particular gambit brought mixed results. But neither after Miley leadoff hitter Cody Bellinger has left and left Game 5, he will start Game 6 at Milwaukee on Friday when the Brewers try to avoid the elimination.
"Look, they're trying to get matchups, we're trying to get matchups," Counsell said. "They are a very tough team against matchups."
Counsell started a left-handed team to persuade the Dodgers, theirs From this point of view, the Brewers were successful: Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts used six right-handers as positional players, and the Dodgers scored points in the fifth inning.
Counsell did Most of his players did not even tell of his scheme until just before the season.
Catcher Erik Kratz, of course, was on the scene, he understands why the Brewers are being questioned, but he's all in on the ideas that Counsell co-stars with Following his convention flooding.
"Why can not you?" Asked Kratz, "Is it against the rules? Is it Busch league? If it is Bus League, you can call it Busch League. I do not think it is because they are all on our team. … Brandon Woodruff is a really good pitcher so he gets some outs. "
A surprising Bullpen game worked well until it failed – and it did not stop the Brewers from making the third straight in four games after a 12-win streak that catapulted them deep into the postseason.
Woodruff escaped a first-inning marmalade and kept the Dodgers in check until the fifth when he relinquished Austin Barnes' Binding Single.
But in the sixth, Woodruff allowed Justin Turner's leadoff single and hit Manny Machado with a pitch, with Muncy pursuing him with a single who rocked a Chavez Ravine crowd eager to see the World Series again next week.
Counsel's options were then limited to such aggressive Bullpen use, and Corbin Burnes played his successive game For the fifth time in his professional career, Yasiel Puig gave an RBI single, with veteran Righty Joakim Soria working for the third time in three days and b Commissioned while he got one.
Milwaukee's fearsome Bullpen accounted for 14 of the Dodgers' 16 runs in the series, and 12 of them came in the sixth inning or later.
Not many pitching strategies compensated for an offensive that only managed three runs in the last 24 innings at Dodger Stadium.
But Counsell caught almost everyone unprepared when he took a season of tinkering bullpen to a new level. Most Brewers' position pilots only heard about the strategy a few minutes before the season – and Christian Yelich did not know until Miley told him.
"It's just how we roll over here, man," said Yelich. When everyone was called, they could do their job. Woody came in and was huge for us. Has kept us in the game. They just got their hits and made their positions when they did "credit to them."
Miley dropped a three-day break on Matchday 3 after entering Game 2's sixth inning on Saturday. Woodruff had not had more than four innings in a game since May 16, but he was ready to go long in Game 5, having not been thrown for Milwaukee since Game 1.
He even carried on the plate against Dodgers Ace Clayton Kershaw for the second time in the NLCS. Woodruff beheaded Kershaw in Game 1 in Milwaukee and became the third Relief pitcher to Homerize in a postseason game.
With one runner on the first and one out in the third in Game 5, Woodruff pulled away from visibly five feet off Kershaw, who could not hit his patches. Lorenzo Cain then provided an RBI double, though Woodruff eventually stranded in third place.
But the Brewers made 18 consecutive outs between the third inning and a ninth inning mini-rally, destroying their imaginative performance.
Counsell was already at the forefront of the latest wave of managers who, together with Tampa Bay's manager Kevin Cash, devised new ways to use their bullpins.
Cash regularly used an "opener" for an inning before he went to his bullpen this season as other clubs began to take over the track. He took steps not to deceive opponents, although he routinely simulated enemy managers as soon as he decided on his first pitcher so they could plan their lineups accordingly.
No Milwaukee starter had spent one during the sixth innings this postseason until Miley did it in Game 2 of the NLCS.

Fooling Astros in the playoffs
Kershaw starts the NL Championship Series 5 game against Milwaukee at home, which could possibly be his last appearance in a Los Angeles Dodgers uniform.
Three-time Cy Young Award winner can say goodbye to the last two years and $ 70 million remaining on his contract after the World Series. The ownership of Dodgers has made it clear that the team would like to remain his long-time ace.
"I have not made a decision," Kershaw said Tuesday.
The 30-year-old left-back judge confirmed after his last season opener that he had considered the possibility that it was his last round with the Dodgers, the only team he played for in his big league career.
Miley beats Milwaukee for a three-day break, tied to the best-of-seven series in two games each.
"For me it's just an attempt to focus as much as possible on the Brewers and get ready," Kershaw said, "and put everything else on hold as fast as possible.
A Look At What's Going Around The Majors Today:
SPYGATE, THE SEQUEL
The Houston Astros could defend themselves more than their World Series titles. After Cleveland filed a Major League Baseball complaint last week over a man involved with Houston in a game against the Indians in Game 3 of the AL Division Series, a person familiar with the situation reports  Person spoke with the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Tuesday night because of the sensitivity of the matter.
MLB also says that there is a report from Metro Boston announcing that a man who claims to be an Astros-An Being positioned away from a Credentialed area near the Red Sox dugout was during the AL Championship Series opener at Fenway Park.
In a statement, MLB said the matter was "handled internally" and offered no further details.
Astros manager AJ Hinch was interviewed the Metro reported after the game on Tuesday and said he was informed about the alleged incident, but said he had not been informed. He will certainly be asked again, especially since the complaint of the Indians was reported only after Hinchs postgame comment.
Houston hopes Charlie Morton will not be too rusty He makes his playoff debut in 2018 in Game 4 of the AL Championship Series against Boston. Morton, who had shoulder debts on the disabled list at the end of the year, has not pitched since the regular season finale on September 30.
Rick Porcello launches for the Red Sox, having found relief in Game 2 in Boston leads 2-1 after a grand slam by Jackie Bradley Jr., his second big hit in the series, broke an 8-2 win in Game 3.
Tension could be On the rise in the NLCS after Dodgers thug Manny Machado stepped back into trouble Tuesday night.
Both benches emptied after Machado cut off the rear leg of Milwaukee's first baseman Jesus Aguilar while running a cornerstone in Game 4. Aguilar dropped his foot onto the base for a moment after Machado was already out, and the star shortstop seemed to show his displeasure by bringing his left foot forward and Aguilar stepping on the back of the leg. Aguilar looked annoyed and the two exchanged words, but no punches were thrown.
"He is a player who has experienced such incidents," said Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich about Machado. "It's a dirty game from a dirty player."
Aguilar, however, said the two talked it out after Machado was singled out in the 13th inning.
"We're family, things happen," said Machado, who hit the race of victory moments later. "He's a great guy, we're going back since the smaller leagues."
Milwaukee is expected to leave a new arm for the rest of the NLCS after starting Gio Gonzalez's game 4 in the second inning as he twisted his ankle and attempted to defeat Yasiel Puig's infield Single place.
Gonzalez has a high ankle sprain and is likely to have to be replaced on the list, said manager Craig Counsell. Following Gonzalez's injury, the Brewers burned much of their bullpen during a 13-1 loss to the Dodgers 2-1.
"We need to keep our heads together and look what we have, Counsell said." We are certainly in a difficult situation. "
