The Milwaukee Brewers attempt to take a 3-1 lead when they visit the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday for Game 4 of the National League Championship Series. Orlando Arcia hit a two-run homer and five pitchers combined on a five-hitter as the Brewers recorded a 4-0 victory on Monday.

Arcia has gone deep in back-to-back games, and manager Craig Counsell isn't surprised to see his shortstop coming through on the big stage. "Orlando has always been a guy that you want to put a moment on him, put pressure on him," Counsell said during his postgame press conference. "Put a big moment on him. Put the spotlight on him. He loves it. And I'm not surprised that he's thriving in the playoff atmosphere. He has this love and he's wired the right way for this kind of baseball." The Dodgers went 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position in Game 3, a fact that distressed manager Dave Roberts. "I thought we had the right guys in those moments and we just didn't execute," Roberts told reporters after Game 3. "So in games like this, things like that get exploited. I definitely don't think it's the personnel. It's a matter of when we get in those spots, we have to find a way to be productive."

PITCHING MATCHUP: Brewers LH Gio Gonzalez (0-0, 4.50 ERA) vs. Dodgers LH Rich Hill (0-0, 4.15)

Gonzalez started Game 1 and was pulled after allowing one run and one hit - a homer by Manny Machado - in two innings. Counsell didn't announce Gonzalez as the starter until after Monday's victory but said starting the 33-year-old always was the preferred plan. "We laid out some scenarios, kind of going into (Monday's) game, what the possibilities were for (Tuesday)," Counsell said in his postgame press conference. "And if we got a good start and we're in good shape, Gio was always going to be the guy."

Hill went 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA and 13 strikeouts over 12 innings in two regular-season starts against the Brewers, but he doesn't see the success as a factor in mid-October. "It is probably something you look a little bit deeper into scouting reports as opposed to what they hit and what they don't hit," Hill said Monday during his press conference. "It's really about the makeup and the fight that they have, too, as well, knowing that no lead is ever safe." The 38-year-old Hill is 1-2 with a 3.55 ERA in nine career postseason starts.

WALK-OFFS

1. Machado, who is 5-for-11 in the series, has recorded three homers and nine RBIs in seven games this postseason.

2. Milwaukee became the third team to toss three shutouts in the first six games of a postseason, joining the 1905 New York Giants and 1966 Baltimore Orioles.

3. Roberts said that C Austin Barnes will start in Game 4 in place of the struggling Yasmani Grandal, who went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Game 3 and has committed three passed balls and two errors in the series.
