The Dodgers have evened the National League Championship Series at 2-2 after enduring an extra-inning 2-1 win over the Brewers at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday.

The victory deep into extra innings brings them to within two wins of making their second consecutive World Series appearance.

Neither team was able to get much scoring going at Dodger Stadium, taking a 1-1 tie into the ninth and then deep into extra innings.

With the Brewers leading 2-1 in the best-of-seven series, the defending NL champion Dodgers went ahead when Brian Dozier singled home a run in the first inning off Gio Gonzalez.

Milwaukee, seeking its first World Series appearance since 1982, tied the score in the fifth when pinch-hitter Domingo Santana hit an RBI double against Rich Hill.

Both teams wasted plenty of chances. Through nine innings, the Brewers went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position and the Dodgers 1 for 9.

The winner of the seven-game NLCS goes to the World Series to face the victor of the Red Sox-Astros matchup in the American League Championship Series.
