LOS ANGELES (AP) Dodgers fans nearly filled their home stadium Monday night for a reboot of ”Mannywood Fernando Valenzuela Jersey ,” and then the Milwaukee Brewers stepped in to spoil the party.Eric Thames hit a three-run home run and Christian Yelich extended his hitting streak to 14 games as the Milwaukee Brewers overcame a brief power outage delay and beat Los Angeles 5-2.Manny Machado homered in the ninth inning in his first home game with the Dodgers, going 1 for 3 with two walks. He delivered his 26th home run of the season to center field off Brewers reliever Corey Knebel. He also struck out in the fourth inning with two runners in scoring position.”It wasn’t a good situation,” Machado said, when asked about the home run. ”I should have hit that a couple of innings before. … It was a little late for that one. We’re here to win games and when you come out with a loss like that, it’s not fun.”There was an intensity among the crowd 44,933 that was reminiscent of 2008 when the Dodgers acquired Manny Ramirez for the stretch drive. Ramirez did his part that year by crushing 17 home runs over the season’s final two months, helping push the Dodgers into the National League Championship Series.On Monday, a group of 12 fans in left-center field all wore a blue T-shirt with a single white character, spelling out ”MANNYWOOD 2.0” when they stood shoulder-to-shoulder.”That was pretty cool, I’m not going to lie,” Machado said.However, the night belonged to the Brewers, who grabbed the momentum quickly http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-jackie-robinson-jersey , before a power outage caused a 23-minute delay between the first and second innings. The Dodgers said the outage was due to ”a disruption in the city’s power feed to the facility.”The Brewers had a 1-0 lead at the time of the delay. Milwaukee loaded the bases three batters into the game – started by a leadoff double by Yelich that extended his streak – against Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda before getting an RBI single from Travis Shaw. Maeda prevented more damage by getting a strikeout, popup and fly ball to end the threat.Thames capped a two-out rally in the third inning with his 14th home run of the season. Shaw, who had three hits, worked a two-out walk before Ryan Braun singled. Thames then drilled a 0-1 pitch off Maeda into the bleachers in left-center to make it 3-0.”It felt good to get the hit to give us some distance from the Dodgers because the way they line up,” Thames said. ”This is a huge series. … This might be a postseason matchup, you never know. It’s a playoff preview for us.”Josh Hader (4-0) had three strikeouts over two scoreless innings of relief as the Brewers won for the seventh time in 10 games to follow a seven-game losing streak that ended July 21.”That’s just a tough baseball game,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. ”It’s a good team over there and we outlasted them pitching and did a nice job.”Maeda (7-6) lasted just 4 2/3 innings, throwing 102 pitches. He gave up four runs and seven hits with four strikeouts and three walks.Brewers starter Freddy Peralta went four innings, giving up one run and three hits with four walks and six strikeouts. He threw 98 pitches.Joakim Soria pitched a scoreless seventh inning in his second appearance with Milwaukee after being acquired last week in a trade from the Chicago White Sox.The Dodgers have lost consecutive games after starting the second half with six wins in nine games. They have just seven hits in their last two games after they nearly were no-hit at Atlanta on Sunday by Sean Newcomb.TRAINER’S ROOMBrewers: RHP Jimmy Nelson and C Stephen Vogt, both on the 60-day disabled list following shoulder surgery, were with the team in Los Angeles to get further examinations as they each continue their road to recovery.Dodgers: RHP Ross Stripling was placed on the disabled list with inflammation in the big toe of his right foot, with manager Dave Roberts saying it could take 10-12 days to heal. … Justin Turner (right groin strain) took live batting practice Monday and ran the bases, three days before he is eligible to return from the 10-day disabled list.STAR POWERDallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett was on field at Dodger Stadium pregame Monday Kenley Jansen Jersey , watching batting practice for both the Dodgers and Brewers. Garrett held a lengthy conversation on the field with Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, a Dallas-area native.The Cowboys are in training camp in nearby Oxnard, approximately 60 miles west of Los Angeles.UP NEXTBrewers: LHP Wade Miley (1-1, 2.01 ERA) figures to feel right at home at Dodger Stadium, where he is 3-0 with a 2.41 ERA over six career starts.Dodgers: RHP Walker Buehler (4-3, 3.92) will make his third start since returning from the DL because of a rib microfracture, coming off an outing at Philadelphia where he gave up five earned runs to match a season high.— LOS ANGELES (AP) — Late September, a crucial series, and a postseason berth on the line. Yasiel Puig thrives in big-game situations, and once again he delivered.Puig didn’t start despite being on a tear at the plate. But he came off the bench to slug a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the seventh inning that sent the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Colorado Rockies 5-2 on Wednesday night to increase their NL West lead to 2½ games.“We’re going to win the West again,” Puig said. Walker Buehler struck out a career-high 12 and the Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the second-place Rockies, giving the five-time defending NL West champions their largest division lead this season. They outscored Colorado 16-6 in the series http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-corey-seager-jersey , with homers proving to be the difference in each game.“It’s impressive,” manager Dave Roberts said of the sweep. “I believe our guys can sustain it.”The Rockies remained 1½ games behind St. Louis for the second NL wild card.“Like I’ve said all along, I think this is going to come down to the end,” manager Bud Black said. “I really do.”After falling into a 2-0 hole in a 36-pitch first inning, Buehler settled down and showed why he has become a dependable complement to Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. The rookie right-hander allowed three hits and one walk over six innings, and neither run he gave up was earned.“I just slowed down a little bit,” Buehler said. “The later you get in the year the bigger it all feels.”Puig’s second career pinch-hit homer came off Scott Oberg (7-1) and ignited the crowd and his teammates, some of whom came out in front of the dugout to cheer. The always-excitable Puig raised both arms as he circled the bases.“I saw his first swing and I saw him hit the top half of the ball,” Oberg said. “I’m like, ‘OK, it’s probably a decent pitch to throw again.’ Sitting on it. Put a good swing on it. Over the fence. That’s it.”Puig is hitting .400 this month, with seven homers, nine runs and 14 RBIs. He hit five homers in two days recently.The Dodgers showed off their depth in the seventh. After pinch-hitter Joc Pederson fouled out Enrique Hernandez Jersey , Max Muncy drew a pinch-hit walk. Yasmani Grandal doubled to deep right field, moving Muncy to third and setting up Puig.“This series was emblematic of our ballclub,” Roberts said. “How many people had their hands in to help us win three ballgames.”Caleb Ferguson (7-2) got two outs and Kenley Jansen closed for his 36th save.Buehler gave up a two-run single to Ian Desmond in the first after the pitcher made a run-saving throw to the plate when Gerardo Parra grounded into a fielder’s choice.Matt Kemp homered on the first pitch from Tyler Anderson in the second, giving the Dodgers seven players with 20 or more homers in a season for the first time in franchise history. That left them trailing 2-1. Brian Dozier’s RBI double tied the game 2-all in the fifth. Enrique Hernandez singled leading off and made a headfirst slide at the plate, with his feet barely eluding the tag of catcher Chris Iannetta.Anderson gave up two runs and three hits in six innings. He struck out four and walked two.The Dodgers went 12-7 against the Rockies this season and swept them twice. Colorado, which lost two of three at home to Los Angeles earlier this month, fell to 1-5 on its nine-game road trip.“You can see it as a tale of two teams right now with the Dodgers,” Iannetta said. “They’re getting hot over the last week and a half and we’ve been grinding a little bit the last week and a half. We’ve had moments, but we haven’t really had consistent production.”TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: SS Trevor Story is receiving treatment for right elbow inflammation in Arizona, and the team is encouraged that he could return soon. Story might participate in some baseball activities at the club’s spring training facility in Phoenix, where the Rockies are headed next to play the Diamondbacks.TROUBLE AT HOMEThings aren’t going as well for Puig at home. TMZ reported that the slugger’s home in the San Fernando Valley was broken into for the fourth time on Tuesday night when he was at the ballpark.“I (did) not sleep too much yesterday,” Puig said, without offering details about the incident.Previous break-ins occurred in March 2017 http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-manny-machado-jersey , during Game 7 of last year’s World Series and then last month.DODGERS AT HOMEWith three home games left in the regular season, the Dodgers are 42-36, their worst record in LA since going 42-39 in 2011. Their latest win allowed them to clinch a 13th straight winning season at Chavez Ravine.BLACKMON’S STREAKCharlie Blackmon singled in the first, extending his hitting streak to 12 games, the longest active steak in the majors. He’s hitting .390 with nine runs, five doubles, four homers and eight RBIs since Sept. 8.UP NEXTRockies: Off on Thursday before sending RHP German Marquez (12-10, 3.96 ERA) to the mound against third-place Arizona.Dodgers: After an off day Thursday, LHP Rich Hill (9-5, 4.02) starts the opener of a three-game series against the last-place Padres.
