    20 de octubre de 2018

    Milwaukee, USA, Oct 19 (efe-epa).- Venezuelan first base Jesus Aguilar scored three runs, helping the Milwaukee Brewers to a 7-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the sixth game of the National League Championship Series (NLCS) on Friday in Milwaukee.

    The contest remained tied 3-3, ahead of match seven on Saturday, which will decide who wins the NLCS championship, at Miller park in Milwaukee.

    Aguilar started a two-out hit parade for the Brewers, helping them score four runs in the first innings and put pressure on the opposition, who never quite managed to catch up throughout the match.

    The victory was sealed by reliever Corey Knebel (1-0), who worked an inning and two third after taking the ball from starting pitcher Wade Miley.

    Meanwhile, Dodgers starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu (0-1), who barely lasted three innings in the mound, ceded seven base hits, with five earned runs, and gave two bases on balls and struck out three rival batters.
