  How to watch Dodgers vs. Brewers: MLB playoffs live stream, schedule, TV channel, start time for Game 2 The Dodgers and Brewers face off in Game 2 of the wild-card series and Los Angeles has a chance to complete the sweep.The top-seeded Dodgers won 4-2 on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium, drawing two bases-loaded walks in the first inning to take a leader they would never relinquish.

It's like the Astros don't understand why people hate them. Their systematic sign stealing during the 2017 season forever tarnished the World Series title they won.

Correa may be trying to motivate himself with this kind of stuff, but it just makes him look awful every time he opens his mouth.
