HOUSTON (AP) — Carlos Correa has been moved from seventh to fourth in the Houston Astros‘ batting order for Game 5 of the AL Championship Series against the Boston Red Sox.Astros manager AJ Hinch made the switch for his team’s must-win game Thursday night after Correa had three hits and drove in two runs in Game 4. It was the first multi-hit game this postseason for Correa http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-shelby-miller-jersey , the shortstop who has struggled with back problems for months.“At the end of the day he’s a middle-of-the-order bat. I’ve been wanting to get him back in the middle of the order,” Hinch said. “Why not now? There may be no tomorrow, literally.”Red Sox first baseman Mitch Moreland, who injured his right hamstring in Game 2 of the AL Division Series, gets his first start in the ALCS.Alex Bregman was still in the leadoff spot for Houston and Jose Altuve was the designated hitter for the third game in a row because of his bruised right knee.“He’s playing on one leg. If this was the regular season there’s no way he could play,” Hinch said.“He’s not going to hurt himself any further,” the manager said. “He’s part of our heart and soul so you’re going to have to drag him off the field.”Moreland didn’t play in the ALDS clincher against the Yankees, but made pinch-hitting appearances in each of the first four ALCS games.Second baseman Ian Kinsler was also back in Boston’s starting lineup, batting sixth behind Moreland against Astros right-hander Justin Verlander. Third baseman Rafael Devers dropped from fifth to seventh in the order. LOS ANGELES (AP) Wade Miley is a Louisiana guy with an affinity for Hollywood.Miley remained undefeated at Dodger Stadium, delivering seven scoreless innings in the Milwaukee Brewers‘ 1-0 win over Los Angeles on Tuesday night Chris Owings Jersey , hours after LA acquired second baseman Brian Dozier from Minnesota.In seven starts in Los Angeles, Miley is now 4-0 with a 2.06 ERA.”I guess,” was Miley’s simple answer when asked if Dodger Stadium just agrees with him.”It’s a cool atmosphere when you’re playing at Dodger Stadium,” Miley said. ”I just tried to go out and win and keep us in the game.”The left-hander got some help from center fielder Lorenzo Cain, who appeared to rob the Dodgers‘ Cody Bellinger of a tying home run with a leaping catch at the wall to end the seventh inning. Cain also drove in Milwaukee’s only run with a two-out double in the third.”That was exciting because when I threw the pitch, it didn’t finish how I wanted to,” Miley said. ”He put a good swing on it. It was like, `Come on.’ Then seeing Lo tracking it, I was like `Do it!’ And he did it.”The Brewers improved to 5-1 during their eight-game California swing, having taken three of four in San Francisco before winning their first two against the Dodgers. Milwaukee has won eight of 11 since a seven-game skid.The Dodgers lost their third straight on a day when they acquired Dozier from the Twins and reliever John Axford from the Toronto Blue Jays. Dozier Archie Bradley Jersey , who arrived in Los Angeles on Tuesday night and watched the final two innings in uniform from the dugout, joins Manny Machado in the Dodgers’ revamped infield.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts and general manager Farhan Zaidi said the right-handed hitting Dozier was acquired, in part, to help the team improve against left-handers.Miley (2-1) exposed Los Angeles’ weakness, giving up only singles by Yasiel Puig in the second and Austin Barnes in the fifth. He struck out five, walked one and only allowed one runner to reach second base.”If you look at this year, we haven’t really handled left-handed pitching so obviously with the acquisition of Dozier, he’s a guy that has throughout his career has fared well against left-handed pitching and adds length to our lineup,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.Walker Buehler (4-4) went seven strong innings, giving up one run on five hits with no walks and seven strikeouts. Second baseman Enrique Hernandez threw out Cain at home to end the third after Mike Moustakas singled to shallow center field.Coming off a loss when he gave up a season-high tying five runs Curt Schilling Jersey , Buehler delivered career bests in innings and pitches (105).”A loss is a loss man,” Buehler said. ”I made a bad pitch to Cain and that guy is an All-Star and a World Series champion and he took advantage of it. That’s what you do to stay in the big leagues. Without that pitch it’s a different game. I can’t let it happen.”Right-hander Joakim Soria, who was acquired from the Chicago White Sox last week, pitched a scoreless eighth. Jeremy Jeffress worked the ninth for his fourth save in eight opportunities.Machado, who made his Dodgers debut on July 20 at Milwaukee, went 0-for-3 with a walk.A LITTE SYMPATHYCain also took a potential extra-base hit away from Bellinger when he raced into the gap in the fifth.Roberts praised Bellinger’s at-bats, and Cain felt for the young Dodgers slugger.”It’s a tough night for him tonight, but that’s how this game is,” Cain said. ”It’s exciting. You’ve got to get pumped up and get fired up when someone makes a play.”LATE ARRIVALDozier made it to the Dodgers’ bench in the eighth inning after heading to the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport immediately after learning about his trade.Dozier was on the active roster but did not get into the game. Upon arrival, he put on his No. 6 uniform Luis Gonzalez Jersey , stretched and hit in the batting cage per instruction from manager Dave Roberts.Dozier could be seen hugging his new teammates before taking a spot on the railing of the Dodgers’ dugout in the eighth. He was scheduled to pinch run if Matt Kemp reached base in the ninth inning, but Kemp lined out to end the game.Why the willingness to race across country when many players who were traded Tuesday were taking at least a day to report to their new teams?”No days off. I don’t like days off,” Dozier said.TRAINER’S ROOMBrewers: RHP Jimmy Nelson (shoulder surgery) followed his examination with orthopedist Dr. Neal El Attrache on Monday with a bullpen session at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday. He focused on offspeed pitches.Dodgers: 3B Justin Turner (right groin strain) had three innings worth of live batting practice Tuesday, and Roberts expects his middle-of-the-order threat to be back in the starting lineup by the weekend. … LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (left groin strain) will pitch three innings in a rehab outing with Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday.UP NEXTBrewers: RHP Chase Anderson (7-7, 3.69 ERA) will take the mound Wednesday looking for his first career victory at Dodger Stadium. He’s 0-3 there with a 4.15 ERA in six starts.Dodgers: LHP Rich Hill (4-4, 3.82) is coming off a strong outing at Atlanta on Thursday, when he worked seven scoreless innings in an 8-2 victory.—
