Yelich on Machado: 'A dirty play by a dirty player'

The Brewers have one of the best bullpens in baseball, but it's the rotation that has produced unexpected heroes

Yelich said if a play like that happened one time from Machado it might be considered an accident, but he sees it as a pattern.

Of course, if Machado were having a bad postseason, it would be easier to make all of the criticism stick, but he leads all postseason hitters with nine RBIs and is tied with three other players for the home run lead (three). He went 1 for 5 with a single and a walk in Game 4, dropping the regular-season triple crown contender to 3 for 16 (.188) with no extra-base hits or RBIs in the NLCS.

Aguilar declined to comment on Yelich's statements after the game and urged everyone to move on. "We've got some good contributions from guys at the bottom".

The Yankees said the surgery "went as expected", but they didn't provide a timetable. Roberts used him only in a pinch-hitting role in Game 2, which resulted in an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded and the Dodgers down by one in the seventh.

For Game 5, the Brewers are going with Wade Miley while Clayton Kershaw will take the mound for Los Angeles.

"I think any person in baseball understands what it is to be able to block a ball like that", he added. "I haven't been there much lately", Bellinger said. However, the league will punish the Los Angeles slugger for his role in yesterday's scuffle.

In a tied series with the Brewers, tensions are pretty high for the Dodgers as they're looking to avenge last season to get back and win the World Series.

His touch on the ball and ability to evade defenders is still very much a work in progress, as is his positioning and vision. His second goal came in the 68th minute when he took advantage of a defensive blunder and tapped in an empty-netter.

Throughout the playoffs, Chris Taylor has been a hitting machine for Los Angeles, posting a slash line of.353/.450/.647. He says he was "really frustrated" following a 4-0 loss to the Brewers on Monday at Dodger Stadium.

Milwaukee put the potential go-ahead run on third in the seventh before Cain grounded out against Dylan Floro.

Sure, Jesus Aguilar is a little more on top of the base than a first baseman should be, and I expect that Machado was trying to register a complaint in a physical way.

Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles Dodgers was a combined 15 for 85 in 22 postseason games.

While the Milwaukee Brewers didn't shy away from calling Machado a "dirty player", the Major League Baseball doesn't believe that his actions warrant a suspension.

Both Machado and Aguilar said after the game that they had no quarrel with each other, and Aguilar said Machado apologized to him.
