Dodgers SS Manny Machado was in no mood to talk about all the boos he heard tonight. "I focus on the game, try to go pitch by pitch," he said.

Dodgers C Austin Barnes: "We all knew this was going to be a tough, hard-fought series. I don't think anyone is too surprised it's going seven."

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen: "I mean, since August we've been playing for our lives. Here we are again, with another shot at it."

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Erik Kratz has played for 7 major league clubs. A dozen of his college friends called his wife and raided his closet. Each wore one of his game used jerseys and surprised him after Game 6 of the NLCS.

As impressive as the Brewers were on the field in a 7-2 win to force an NLCS Game 7, one of the biggest keys for Milwaukee is who didn't appear in Game 6: Super reliever Josh Hader, who will be fully available however Craig Counsell decides to deploy him Saturday night.

The Brewers are shaking hands on the field at Miller Park and there will be an NLCS Game 7 in Milwaukee after the Brew Crew trounced the Dodgers 7-2 in Game 6.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dodgers lose, 7-2, and they will play Game 7 tomorrow, at 5:09 pm PT on FS1. The Brewers will have a rested Josh Hader, but the Dodgers will start a notably confident Walker Buehler. The Dodgers are 4-1 all-time in winner-take-all postseason games on the road.

Kenta Maeda was one batter away from escaping a two-on, none-out situation, but he uncorked a wild pitch, and the Dodgers now trail by 4. The Brewers have six outs to go, and Josh Hader seems loose. But why not try to save him?

Joc Pederson was hit in the right wrist by a 96-mph Corey Knebel fastball and was clearly in a lot of pain, but he stayed in.

Fans love Machado striking out (0:22)

Dan Mullen ESPN.com 

With the bases loaded and two outs, Corey Knebel struck out to end the fifth in his first professional at-bat EVER — postseason, regular season or even in the minors. With a 5-2 lead, Craig Counsell elected to keep his reliever in for another inning over going to pinch-hitter Domingo Santana for a potential knockout punch.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Manny Machado, booed vociferously at Miller Park, is 0-for-3 tonight after striking out to strand a couple of runners to end the top of the fifth. The Dodgers trail by three and need to piece together at least four innings.
