Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw to test Brewers in NLCS opener

Build an early lead, get five good innings out of the starter and bring in the bullpen.
The Milwaukee Brewers used that formula to win 11 straight games going into the National League Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Clayton Kershaw could put a stop to the streak.
The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner will start for visiting Los Angeles in Game 1 of the NLCS on Friday at Miller Park. Gio Gonzalez will pitch for the Brewers.
“We know we’re not going to get a ton of opportunities” against Kershaw and Dodgers starting pitching, outfielder Ryan Braun said Thursday. “So we’ve talked about the importance of cashing in on the opportunities we do get.”
Once the Brewers take a lead, they’re hard to beat. Milwaukee’s 3.
