The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers resume their battle for baseball's National League Championship Monday night at Dodger Stadium. They'll do so with the best-of-seven championship series tied at one game apiece, following the Dodgers 4-3 victory Saturday night at Miller Park.

The Brewers took a 3-0 lead in the contest, but the Dodgers scored two runs in both the seventh and eighth innings for the win.

The Brewers loss broke the team's 12-game winning streak, which included Friday's night's series opener that Milwaukee won 6-5.

After Saturday night's game, Brewers Manager Craig Counsell said the match-up has been close. "I mean, it can't get any closer, right? It's been two hard-fought games, two one-run games, tying run on base, in scoring position to finish each game. So, we're looking forward to the next chapter," Counsell said.

Three games are scheduled this week in Los Angeles. Unless one team sweeps those contests, Game 6 will be Friday night in Milwaukee.

The NL winner will play either the Boston Red Sox or Houston Astros in the 2018 World Series.
