Grandal also didn't handle Dodgers starter Walker Buehler's wild pitch in the sixth innnig, while allowed Brewers infielder Travis Shaw to score from third base, making the score 2-0.

Grandal had a rough night at the plate as well, striking out three times.

A sold-out crowd booed Grandal throughout the night.

But not before Grandal's teammates had a word with L.A. fans who chanted "We want Austin!"

Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal continues to turn in one of the most eye-poppingly terrible postseason series in recent memory. "I don't really hear the noise outside". Once again, I get the instinct in the heat of a loss to go there ... but it just doesn't play to rip your own fans for not being professional baseball players when they were paying to come watch actual professional baseball players play professional baseball. He made a start in the NLDS round, throwing 4 1/3 innings and allowing two runs versus the Braves.

The fact is, Grandal is struggling. "Austin will catch", Roberts said. "They want the best out of all of us, especially in the postseason".

"I've been known for three things - taking care of my pitchers, getting on base and slugging", Grandal said. I get what you're going for here, but it reads like a guy who keeps effing up saying that he's actually doing just fine and stop worrying about it you bozos. Grandal, a free agent at season's end, bounced back to turn in a solid regular season in 2018, sporting an.815 OPS and 24 home runs in a career-high 140 games.

The Dodgers started Austin Barnes behind the plate with Rich Hill on the mound for Game 4.

The Dodgers went 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position and mishandled several balls in play, outside of Grandal's blunders.

After the game, they were understandably frustrated with the loss, and Kiké Hernandez pointed at the atmosphere (or lack thereof) at Dodger Stadium. "Overall, it was a pretty bad game for everybody that calls themselves Dodgers".
