Brewers remove Miley after one batter against Dodgers

18 October 2018 01:09

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Wade Miley's day was very short against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series on Wednesday.

Miley walked left-handed hitting Cody Bellinger to start game five and was immediately removed by Brewers manager Craig Counsell midweek.

The 2012 MLB All-Star was replaced by reliever Brandon Woodruff for the Brewers, who reportedly always planned to withdraw Miley early with the NLCS tied at 2-2.

Milwaukee plan to stay Miley in game six, according to reports.

The Dodgers started six right-handed hitters to oppose Miley in game five –  Joc Pederson and Yasmani Grandal were left out of the line-up by Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts. 

Woodruff gave up one base runner after Miley was removed but escaped the inning without allowing a run.

Miley is the second pitcher in postseason history to start a game and face one batter. Johnny Cueto also did so in game one of the 2012 NLDS.
