Dodgers beat Brewers in Game 4 of NLCS after 13 innings
LOS ANGELES — The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers were tied 1-1 after 12 innings in Game 4 of the NL Championship Series. The Dodgers won 2-1 in the 13th — tying the NLCS at two all.
With the Brewers leading 2-1 in the best-of-seven series heading into Game 4, the defending NL champion Dodgers went ahead when Brian Dozier singled home a run in the first inning off Gio Gonzalez.
Milwaukee, seeking its first World Series appearance since 1982, tied the score in the fifth when pinch-hitter Domingo Santana hit an RBI double against Rich Hill.
Both teams used all their position players and both teams wasted plenty of chances. The Brewers were 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position and the Dodgers 1 for 9.
This matched the longest postseason game this year, Colorado’s 2-1, 13-inning victory over the Chicago Cubs in the NL wild-card matchup.
Game 5 is Wednesday afternoon at Dodger Stadium.
