The Milwaukee Brewers look to continue their scorching-hot play when they host the Colorado Rockies on Friday for Game 2 of the best-of-five National League Division Series. Mike Moustakas delivered a walk-off single in Thursday's 3-2, 10-inning victory as Milwaukee posted its ninth straight victory and 24th in 31 contests.

Leading NL MVP candidate Christian Yelich hit a two-run homer and scored the winning run after the Brewers let a 2-0 lead slip away in the ninth inning. "Obviously, we would have liked to win in that situation, but you regroup as a team," Yelich told reporters. "You kind of take a deep breath. 'All right, now we've just got to find a way to push one across.' And we were able to do that and just came up with a huge hit. That's been the theme of our team all year." The Rockies recorded just one hit over the first eight innings before forging a tie, and manager Bud Black saw the rally as something on which to build entering Game 2. "That's sort of the characteristic of this group, that they play hard," Black told reporters after the contest. "I know it's overplayed a little bit, but this group truly plays hard, and it's awesome. It's awesome to see."

PITCHING MATCHUP: Rockies LH Tyler Anderson (7-9, 4.55 ERA) vs. Brewers RH Jhoulys Chacin (15-8, 3.50)

Anderson wasn't a lock to receive a postseason start until he scattered four hits over 7 2/3 scoreless innings against Washington on Sunday to snap a 13-start winless streak during which he went 0-6. "I went through some struggles, but everyone does at some point or another," Anderson said in his press conference. "I was just happy that I was healthy, and I knew if I felt good and I stayed healthy and strong, I could find a way to fix it." The 28-year-old Anderson was torched for seven runs and seven hits - three homers - over four innings in a loss to Milwaukee on Aug. 4 and is 1-2 with an 8.59 ERA in three career matchups.

Chacin pitched in Monday's tiebreaker game against the Chicago Cubs and allowed one run on one hit - a homer - in 5 2/3 innings before departing. The 30-year-old is 2-1 with a 3.32 ERA in four career starts against the Rockies and termed it a blessing to pitch in the postseason against the organization for which he pitched from 2009-14. "Pretty much all the guys there are all my friends still, and pretty much all the coaches, too," Chacin said in his press conference. "It's special that I'm going to have the opportunity to pitch against them in the postseason, just happy that I'm going to have a chance to pitch against the Colorado Rockies."

WALK-OFFS

1. Yelich reached base four times - homer, single and two walks - and stole a base in his postseason debut on Thursday.

2. Colorado SS Trevor Story struck out three times in four hitless at-bats in the series opener after batting .333 with seven homers and 18 RBIs in seven regular-season games against Milwaukee.
