And they did it by holding the Colorado Rockies to two runs... over 28 innings of baseball. Later in the fourth inning, first baseman Jesus Aguilar hit a solo home run to give the Brewers a 2-0 lead.

Kratz went three-for-four at the plate and scored a run, while Keon Broxton and Orlando Arcia blasted consecutive homers late to put the game away. Colorado opted to go with Marquez instead. Oh entered the game with the Brewers leading 4-0, and they added two runs in the ninth for a 6-0 win that completed the three-game sweep of the Rockies.

Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Jeremy Jeffress is doused by teammates as they celebrate in the clubhouse after Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018, in Denver.

Brewers reliever Corbin Burnes was awarded the win. The wily left-hander allowed three hits over 4 2/3 innings.

In Game 3, Oh relieved Adam Ottavino to begin the eighth inning. They will play the victor of the Dodgers-Braves series, starting Friday at Miller Park - by the time that game starts, it will have been almost three weeks since Milwaukee lost. With the Braves forcing a Game 4 against LA, they'll have to wait a little bit longer to find out.

Rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. hit a grand slam that helped the Braves build an early 5-0 lead.

At 20, Acuna became the youngest player to hit a postseason grand slam - Mickey Mantle was 21 when he did it for the New York Yankees in the 1953 World Series. But their offense often couldn't come through with the big hit throughout most of the second half, including the Wild Card Game.

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

This was, however, his first career postseason hit. Freeman's 396-foot moonshot to right field proved to be the game-deciding run. "That's how we've been all year". "We've got a uniform on, so we know we've got a chance", he said.

Vizcaino faced trouble in the ninth inning.

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