The Milwaukee Brewers

sent an unexpected jolt into the NLCS Monday Carlos Gonzalez Jersey , as they shut out the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium to pick up a 2-1 series lead.The victory set the tone of the rest of the series, as the Brewers received a solid pitching performance from starter Jhoulys Chacin and their bullpen got out of a few late jams.For the second time in the series, the Dodgers will be playing from behind, and they'll call upon Rich Hill to help level the series on the mound in Game 4.The Dodgers are also waiting for an unheralded hero to step up in the NLCS similar to what the Brewers have gotten out of Orlando Arcia. NLCS Game 4 InformationStart Time:9:09 p.m. ETTV:FS1Live Stream:Fox Sports Go or Fox Sports app PredictionsDodgers Benefit from Hill's ExperienceRich Hill isn't going to blow any hitters away with 100-mile-per-hour fastballs, but he also isn't going to put his team in danger of losing a postseason game.The experienced left-hander has been a model of consistency in the postseason, as he's never given up more than four earned runs in nine appearances.A year ago, Hill made four starts for the Dodgers in the NLCS and World Series, and although he didn't last more than five innings, he kept them in a position to win.Scott Cunningham/Getty ImagesThe Dodgers have won six of the eight playoff games Hill has started in the last three years, but he's only been credited with a victory once.If Hill steadies the ship in the first five innings, the Dodgers should be able to take the lead through a few scoring opportunities at the plate.In Game 4 of the NLDS against Atlanta, the Dodgers provided Hill with a one-run lead in the first inning http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authen … ieu-jersey , and he benefited from that for the first three innings out his outing.Even though Hill left with a 2-1 deficit on the scoreboard, he didn't hurt his team's chances of winning, which is what the Dodgers need again from the left-hander after suffering a tough Game 3 loss at home.Gonzalez Experiences Another Early ExitGio Gonzalez didn't last long on the mound in Game 1, as Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell opted to put trust in his bullpen after two innings.Gonzalez enters his Game 4 start fresh, but he'll be out on the bump for a similar length as Game 1, but for a different reason.The Brewers left-hander is going up against a Dodgers lineup that threatened throughout Game 3 but failed to deliver, as they went0-for-10 with runners in scoring position.Jeff Roberson/Associated PressWith a 3-1 deficit staring them in the face, the Dodgers will rally and post a few runs to the scoreboard early to make a statement.In Game 3, the heart of the Los Angeles order produced all five hits, with Manny Machado and Justin Turner combining for three of them.If the Dodgers are able to get one or two runners on base for Turner and Machado in the first inning, they'll rattle Gonzalez and lead him in the direction of an early exit.Even if Turner and Machado don't produce runs in their first time around the order, Yasiel Puig and Enrique Hernandez will turn the order over to set up scoring opportunities.Expect the Dodgers to put a handful of runners on base in the first few innings against Gonzalez Gerardo Parra Jersey , which will force Counsell into a tough decision to either keep his starter out on the mound or allow the bullpen to take over. Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90.Statistics obtained from Baseball Reference. CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs had hoped to use the past four days to maintain or pad their lead in the National League Central, but the weather certainly didn’t cooperate.Heading into a pivotal three-game series against the second-place Milwaukee Brewers, the Cubs will attempt to again create some distance. The series opens a day after Chicago’s scheduled series finale against the Washington Nationals was washed out by rain, which was a constant throughout the weekend.The Cubs will attempt to bounce back after being swept in a Saturday doubleheader that was forced after Friday’s scheduled game was rained out as well.Article continues below ...“The bright side is just getting through (the weekend),” Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters Sunday, according to the Chicago Tribune. “We’ve done really well through this stretch. I’ve been really pleased with it and it’s not easy to do what we’ve been doing over the past couple of weeks and how well we’ve actually played.”Despite losing their past two games, the Cubs are 4-4 in their last eight games, which had allowed the Cubs to maintain their cushion over the Brewers. But the margin has been trimmed to two games after Milwaukee completed a three-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants on Sunday with a 6-3 victory.The Brewers will enter Monday’s series opener having won eight of their past 10 games and captured two of three from the Cubs last week. Now, with the Cubs within reach, the Brewers head to Chicago with the front-runners in their sights.“Something we’ve been talking about (is) ‘Don’t think about the wild card — think about the division,” said Brewers pitcher Jhoulys Chacin http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authen … ton-jersey , who will take the mound Tuesday. “We have the chance this week. It feels really important now.”Jon Lester will take the mound as the Cubs attempt to get back on a winning track after the wet weekend in Washington.Lester (15-5, 3.53 ERA) has won three of his past four starts but hasn’t pitched since Sept. 2. Lester threw six scoreless innings in his last outing against the Philadelphia Phillies when he scattered six hits and struck out seven.Lester was scheduled to pitch Friday, but when the game was rained out, it allowed the Cubs ace to open the series against Milwaukee on Monday rather than pitch Wednesday’s series finale.Lester is 4-2 with a 2.40 ERA in seven career starts against the Brewers.Milwaukee will counter with Wade Miley (3-2, 2.12) as the Brewers attempt to continue to close the gap. Miley has won just won of his six previous starts but shut down the Cubs last week when he allowed just one earned run in six innings while allowing just three hits and striking out five. Miley is 5-2 with a 4.13 ERA in eight career starts against the Cubs.Miley has allowed three or fewer runs in each of his 12 starts with the Brewers and, like the rest of his teammates, believe that catching the Cubs and capturing the division title is well within reach.“Why wouldn’t it be? Heck, yeah,” Miley said after his last start, according to the Brewers’ official website. “I don’t think you quit thinking about it until you can’t think about it no more. I think that’s the way to go about it.”
