The Brewers play the Dodgers in Game 5 with a first pitch just after 4 p.m. Wednesday. If the Brewers make it to the World Series, Gonzalez will not be available no matter how he is health, wise.
Following a brief delay during which Gonzalez attempted to walk off the injury, Brewers manager Craig Counsell summoned rookie right-hander Freddy Peralta from the bullpen. But if he really has a high ankle sprain, he'd likely be out for the rest of the postseason anyway. Instead of traversing four tight innings with a depleted bullpen, the Dodgers opened up a larger lead, relied on their ace and saved some of their relievers for Game 6 and, if.
The series continues on Friday in Milwaukee; if the Dodgers prevail, they will be headed to their second consecutive World Series.
The day game came after Tuesday's suspenseful match-up, which drew a number of celeb fans, including Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, Rob Lowe, Mario Lopez and Will Ferrell.
Trump praises Montana congressman who assaulted reporter: 'Never wrestle him'
Greg Gianforte at a rally in Missoula, Montana, and as the president began his speech, he warned the crowd "never wrestle him". President Trump blasted Democrat Senator Jon Tester for the second day in a row -this time calling him out for hypocrisy.
In five regular-season starts with the Brewers, he had a 2.13 ERA with a 3-0 record.
He also promised to deliver a better effort in Game 4 on Tuesday night. If a player is replaced mid-series no matter the reason, he's ruled ineligible for the next round of the postseason, which, in this case, would be the Fall Classic.
And while other pitchers remained an option for Gonzalez's replacement, it was Davies who appeared the most prepared and a best-fit for the situation. Milwaukee's request was approved by the MLB's medical director and Davies was added to the postseason roster.
