Yasmani Grandal played himself out of NLCS Game 4


Yasmani Grandal will not be in the Los Angeles Dodgers' lineup for Game 4 of the NLCS due to his struggles this postseason.

Enrique Hernandez was none too pleased on how the Dodgers played during the 4-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, nor with how the fan base acted throughout the defeat.

Defensively, Grandal allowed his third passed ball in two starts in the series and also couldn't corral Walker Buehler's sixth-inning breaking ball in the dirt, which went for the wild pitch that allowed Brewers infielder Travis Shaw to score.

Machado grounded out for the second out of the inning and while running through the first base bag, he made contact with the back of Aguilar's foot.

Grandal was rebuked by the home crowd in attendance during game three in which another defensive gaffe occurred.

"I think it's driving you guys more nuts than it's driving me", Grandal told reporters.

As for Gonzalez, he was the starter in Game 1 of the NLCS, allowing one run and one hit in two innings, striking out one and walking one in a game they won 6-5. "I don't really hear the noise outside".

The Brewers lead the best-of-seven series 2-1.

"We had no energy", Hernandez said, according to Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times. Austin Barnes will be the catcher, replacing Yasmani Grandal, manager Dave Roberts said. "Overall, it was a pretty bad game for everybody who calls themselves Dodgers". "He's having a bit of a rough patch". "Not just because of the fans, but because of how we were playing the game ..."
