The Brewers come into the series smoking hot. They’ve won 11 in a row. They stole the division from the Chicago Cubs. They swept the Colorado Rockies. If you believe in momentum, the Brewers have every bit of it.
The Los Angeles Dodgers eliminated the Atlanta Braves in four games. There’s been questions abound especially in the closer role. Even though, Kenley Janson has settled down a bit, he’s definitely lost some steam from the last few seasons.
The series comes down to whose bullpen is more effective. The Dodgers won the season series 4-3 but in their three losses, they couldn’t get to the Brewers bullpen. The Brew Crew’s pen combined for 11.1 IP, 8 Hits, and 1 earned run. In their four losses, the pen struggled mightily: 14.2 IP, 34 Hits and 24 earned runs.
The Dodgers will have to versatile in their attack. Everyone can’t swing for the fences especially is Los Angeles gets down by multiple runs.
