LOS ANGELES (AP) — By the time Manny Machado rounded third base Kyle Hendricks Jersey , the Los Angeles Dodgers had already started streaming out of the dugout.After more than five hours of tension-filled baseball, they were certainly eager to celebrate. Tuesday night to give Los Angeles a 2-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers that tied the NL Championship Series at two games apiece.The slumping Bellinger, who began the night 1 for 21 in these playoffs, was chased all the way into left field by teammates. Even manager Dave Roberts ran out to congratulate his outfielder, who got soaked with a Gatorade shower.“I think we gave each other a big hug,” Bellinger said. “I think it was the first time I ever got mobbed out in the outfield.”Bellinger laced a full-count pitch from Junior Guerra into right field to score Machado, who was nearly picked off second base moments earlier. Instead, he slid home and touched the plate with his left hand to beat Christian Yelich’s throw and finally end an October nail-biter that took 5 hours, 15 minutes.“One of the crazier games, where there’s really no margin on either side,” Roberts said. “The bullpen, what they did tonight against a very good offensive club, my hat’s off to these guys.”It was the fourth extra-inning postseason game in Dodger Stadium history, and the home team’s first such win since beating Philadelphia in Game 4 of the 1978 NLCS.“It was a great baseball game, it really was,” Yelich said. “Both sides had opportunities and they were just able to cash one in there at the end.”After a quick turnaround Mike Montgomery Jersey , Game 5 in the best-of-seven series is Wednesday afternoon, with Wade Miley pitching for the Brewers on three days’ rest against fellow lefty Clayton Kershaw.The teams return to Milwaukee for Game 6 on Friday.“We lock it in, win one tomorrow, and we feel a lot better heading home,” Yelich said.With one out in the 13th, Machado hit a broken-bat single to left field and went to second on Guerra’s wild pitch. With first base open and a struggling Yasmani Grandal on deck followed by the pitcher’s spot, the Brewers chose to pitch to Bellinger — and it cost them.“Honestly, I didn’t think he was going to throw me a strike,” Bellinger said. “And then once I noticed he was attacking me, I just tried to put the ball in play and hopefully find a hole this time.”Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said: “I thought it was worth the risk of trying to expand to Bellinger, and if the at-bat goes to Grandal, we walk Grandal.” Bellinger, who entered as a pinch hitter in the sixth, also made a diving catch on his belly of a ball hit by Lorenzo Cain leading off the 10th, spreading his arms out and sliding like a snow angel in right field.“I played right field in the minor leagues a lot before I started playing center field. I haven’t been there much lately,” Bellinger said. “But it’s kind of like riding a bike. I saw it hanging up there , and ran as fast as I could and dove for it.”Both teams used all their position players and wasted numerous chances. Los Angeles went through its entire bullpen.The Dodgers struck out 17 times — all against Milwaukee relievers — and have whiffed 49 times in the series. The Brewers fanned 15 times.“Exhausting,” Los Angeles outfielder Chris Taylor said. “Just a mental and physical grind all the way to the end.”Dodgers starter Rich Hill allowed one run and three hits in five innings.The Brewers tied it 1-all in the fifth on pinch-hitter Domingo Santana’s RBI double that took one hop against the right-field wall with Yasiel Puig scrambling in pursuit.The Dodgers led 1-0 on Brian Dozier’s RBI single in the first off Gio Gonzalez, who left after twisting his ankle while trying to field an infield single by Puig in the second.Gonzalez has a high ankle sprain and will probably need to be replaced on the roster, Counsell said.The sellout crowd of 53,764 was considerably noisier than on Monday, when Enrique Hernandez criticized Dodgers fans for being too quiet. Joc Pederson and Bellinger waved blue rally towels in the dugout.But the Dodgers again struggled at the plate after going 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position during a 4-0 loss in Game 3.Milwaukee put the potential go-ahead run on third in the seventh before Cain grounded out against Dylan Floro.The Dodgers had runners at the corners in the eighth against hard-throwing Josh Hader, who pitched for the second consecutive day. Pinch-hitter Matt Kemp struck out to end the threat.The Brewers had another chance in the ninth against closer Kenley Jansen. With fans on their feet, pinch-hitter Travis Shaw struck out with a runner on third to end the inning.In the 10th, Ryan Braun singled with two outs and stole second against Jansen, who struck out Jesus Aguilar.And when Bellinger finally ended it, the only NLCS game that had lasted longer was the New York Mets’ 15-inning victory over Atlanta in Game 5 in 1999, which took 5 hours, 46 minutes.“Let’s get something to eat,” Dozier said afterward. “I’m starving.”MANNY’S MOVEMachado allowed his left leg to clip the lower right leg of Aguilar at first base while getting thrown out on a routine play in the 10th. Aguilar appeared upset and the two exchanged words . Both benches and bullpens emptied, but no punches were thrown.“It’s a dirty play by a dirty player,” Yelich said.Aguilar Jose Quintana Jersey , however, said the two talked it out after Machado singled in the 13th. Machado said they go back to their days in the minors.“Everything that happens on the field stays on the field,” Machado said. “He’s a great guy.”TICKETS ANYBODY?The Dodgers said tickets were still available for Game 5, which begins at 2:05 p.m. PDT.UP NEXTBrewers: Miley makes his third postseason start in Game 5 on Wednesday. He threw 74 pitches over 5 2/3 scoreless innings Saturday in Game 2 of the NLCS, allowing two hits while striking out three and walking none. His other start came in Game 3 of the NLDS at Colorado. He didn’t factor in the decision either time.Dodgers: Kershaw took the loss in Game 1 against the Brewers. Kershaw had the best postseason outing of his career in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Braves, allowing two hits over eight shutout innings. The Baltimore Orioles possess one of the most coveted trade targets even after the Manny Machado deal.Since they are stuck in the American League East cellar, the Orioles are expected to be one of the top sellers as the MLB trade deadline approaches.With Machado offloaded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for five prospects, the focus has shifted toward reliever Zach Britton, who is the most talked about available player on the market.While it appears Britton will be dealt before the trade deadline, there are other players mentioned in trade discussions who will be harder to move because of the high demand their teams expect in return.One of the most intriguing teams on the trade market could be the New York Mets, who sit 13 games out of first place in the National League East and have some pitchers who could help out contenders at the right price.Below is a look at the latest buzz surrounding the top players on the trade market as play resumes after the All-Star break. Interest in Britton Heating UpBritton's potential landing spot could dictate the remaining market for pitchers, just like Machado's trade to the Dodgers affected position players.Among the teams interested in the services of the reliever are the Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Atlanta Braves, per Fancred's Jon Heyman.The list of potential destinations for Britton will continue to grow in the coming days, especially after Brad Hand was traded to the Cleveland Indians along with Adam Cimber , as The Athletic's Jim Bowden noted on CBS Sports HQ.Ben Margot/Associated Press"All the teams that lost out on Hand are going to take their attention and put it on Zach Britton," Bowden said.Bowden mentioned the Houston Astros, Cubs and Yankees as the teams with the most interest in the 30-year-old reliever.There have been concerns expressed about Britton's health because he is coming off an Achilles injury, but he's proved in his recent outings that he is back to full strength.Since Britton is the top name on the wishlists of many contenders, the Orioles could drive up the price in order to get the maximum return.Each of the teams mentioned above is in need of a bullpen upgrade, and although Britton may have a steeper price tag than other relievers, he'd be worth the risk.DeGrom, Syndergaard Generating Interest, But Mets Setting High Price TagBritton's price tag may be considered cheap compared to what the Mets want in exchange for starting pitchers Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard.According to James Wagner of theNew York Times,teams have made calls to the Mets about the pair of starters, but the asking price is steep:James Wagner ByJamesWagnerHearing more of the same re: Mets at the trade deadline. Teams have called on Jacob deGrom amp;amp; Noah Syndergaard, but Mets most interested in elite prospects (close to the majors) and/or MLB players.The Mets are looking for a similar return as the San Diego Padres got for Hand. The Padres received top prospect Francisco Mejia, who is at Triple-A and should make an impact in the majors soon.However, bringing in a top-notch prospect or an MLB player will be difficult since the teams expected to dive into the starting pitcher market don't have a ton of that at their disposal.Of the two starters mentioned, deGrom should be coveted more because of the season he's producing despite the Mets' struggles.The NL All-Star carries a 1.68 ERA and 149 strikeouts with his 5-4 record, and he's also given up 23 earned runs in 123.1 innings.Frank Franklin II/Associated PressIn his first start back from the disabled list July 13 Dustin Pedroia Jersey , Syndergaard conceded seven hits and one earned run in five innings.If he puts together another solid start or two before the trade deadline, Syndergaard's stock could rise.Trading either one of their star pitchers would be a difficult decision for the Mets no matter how impressive the package presented to them by a contender is.If they think they can get the right deal for deGrom or Syndergaard before the trade deadline, the Mets should pursue it, but there's always the possibility of making a deal in the offseason as well. Brewers Looking At Dozier After Missing Out On MachadoWith the Machado sweepstakes over, the focus of some contenders remains on infielders.The Milwaukee Brewers, who are looking for upgrades in the middle of the infield, are looking at Brian Dozier among others to fill their need, per The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal:Ken Rosenthal Ken_RosenthalAmong the players the #Brewers are expected to target now that they have lost Machado: #Twins 2B Brian Dozier. Team also will explore pitching upgrades as well.Adding a middle infielder with a strong bat would provide balance to Milwaukee's order and patch up a key hole on the field for the team fighting for the NL Central title alongside the Cubs.Although Dozier is hitting .230, he has 16 home runs and 48 RBI in 93 games, and he's hit at least 28 home runs in each of his last three seasons.Bringing in extra power to a lineup that already includes Christian Yelich, Travis Shaw and Jesus Aguilar would add another dimension to the Brewers lineup.If they aren't able to bring in Dozier, the Brewers need to make some sort of upgrade in order to keep pace with the Cubs, who possess one of the best lineups in the NL.
