By Nick Freimuth Milwaukee's winning streak is now at 11 games following a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies in the National League Divisional Series. Miley pitched 4 2/3 innings, giving up 0 runs on just 3 hits.

The Brewers took advantage of some Colorado mistakes in the sixth inning to bust open Game Three - and then added back-to-back homers in the ninth for good measure.

Gio Gonzalez will start for the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 1 of the NL Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night. Of the 28 innings in the matchup, Colorado scored in only one of them.

They then blew that big lead, but first baseman Freddie Freeman hit a tie-breaking home run in the sixth and Atlanta never looked back.

Throughout the regular season, the Rockies offense, led by Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon, Trevor Story and DJ LeMahieu, was their biggest strength.

The Rockies managed to score just two runs against the Brewers in the entire NLDS.

The Brewers will now host Games 1 and 2 of the NLCS in Miller Park.

Roscosmos and NASA said the three-stage Soyuz booster suffered an emergency shutdown of its second stage . Lozano agrees. "Soyuz rockets are relatively low in risk and the safety record is astounding", he said.

Not only that, but they shut them out in Coors Field as well.

Rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. hit a grand slam that helped the Braves build an early 5-0 lead. "That's how we've been all year".

The Milwaukee Brewers used a masterful performance from pitcher Wade Miley to pick up a 6-0 victory against the Colorado Rockies to advance to their first NLCS since 2011. "Because you never know if you're going to get another one", Kratz said.

In the ninth, the Dodgers threatened with runners on first and second and no outs.

The Braves are expected to start RHP Mike Foltynewicz, who gave up four runs and three hits in two innings in Thursday night's 6-0 Game 1 loss.

Francisco Lindor put Cleveland ahead with a third-inning homer off victor Gerrit Cole, but Gonzalez gave the Astros the lead in the sixth with the third of his four hits, an opposite-field double to right off usually reliable reliever Andrew Miller.
