Hello and welcome to Bleacher Report's live coverage of the 2011 MLB Playoffs!  My name is Alec Dopp and I will be taking you through a play-by-play analysis of this afternoon's contest between the Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks.

Having already played four grueling contests in under a week, the Brewers and Diamondbacks will do battle for the fifth time in a tightly-contested NLDS series.  This evening's game will be held at Miller Park, with the winner headed to the NLCS to play either the Philadelphia Phillies or St. Louis Cardinals.

First-pitch is set for roughly 5:00 PM ET.

FINAL SCORE: BREWERS 3, DIAMONDBACKS 2
