MILWAUKEE | Brewers’ bullpen showing cracks against Dodgers
MILWAUKEE — Cracks are showing in the Milwaukee Brewers’ vaunted bullpen.
The Los Angeles Dodgers tied the NL Championship Series at a game apiece after teeing off on Milwaukee’s hard-throwing relievers for the second straight day.
Milwaukee had No. 5 bullpen ERA during the regular season at 3.47, including a best-in-the-majors 1.98 in September.
But the Brewers nearly wasted a five-run lead in Game 1 before holding on for a 6-5 win.
