Brewers at Dodgers, 2:05 PM PDT, TV: FS1
Wade Miley goes for the Brewers on short rest. He threw 5 2/3 innings in Game Two of this series and watched the bullpen give up four runs late. Clayton Kershaw pitches for the Dodgers after a lackluster outing in Game One.
Why is Kershaw getting fewer strikeouts this season? Possibly because the respective speeds of his fastball and slider are converging.
Due to his second-inning ankle injury, the Brewers have removed LHP Gio Gonzalez from their 25-man roster and added RHP Zach Davies as his injury replacement.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
