Chris Taylor hit a two-run homer and Muncy added a tying homer in the fifth to spark the comeback for Los Angeles, which was denied its second straight NLDS sweep after blanking Arizona past year. The Rockies ranked second in the NL with 780 runs scored during the regular season.

Orlando Arcia and Keon Broxton hit back-to-back homers in the ninth off Wade Davis to make it 6-0 and end any sort of drama.

Marquez went five innings and allowed two runs before being lifted for a pinch-hitter.

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.

Brewers reliever Corbin Burnes was awarded the win.

As the Brewers prepare for the victor of the Braves-Dodgers series, we will take a look back and grade the Brewers' individual performances in the NLDS. With the Braves forcing a Game 4 against LA, they'll have to wait a little bit longer to find out.

Atlanta rookie Ronald Acuna smacked a grand slam to help the Braves build a 5-0 lead against the Dodgers. Braves outfielder Nick Markakis scored on a bases-loaded walk prior to the grand slam, giving Atlanta a 1-0 advantage. The New York Yankees' Mickey Mantle held the previous record at 21 years old (1953 World Series).

Starting pitching had been an issue for the Brewers all season, but the Rockies were unable to score a single run off them.

At the time, Gonzalez was hoping a change of scenery would do him well and was ready to accept whatever role the Brewers had in mind for him as they chased their first postseason berth in seven years. Freeman's 396-foot moonshot to right field proved to be the game-deciding run.

Then in the ninth, the Dodgers got runners on first and second with no outs.

"My heart's still pounding", Freeman said to reporters following the game. "Because you never know if you're going to get another one", Kratz said.
