Los Angeles Dodgers starter Walker Buehler allowed only one run in 6 2/3 innings pitched, but it wasn't enough as the Dodgers fell to the Nationals 7-3 in extra innings of Game 5. Buehler gave it all he had, hurling 117 pitches while striking out seven Washington hitters. But the rest of the Dodgers pitching staff, namely Clayton Kershaw, couldn't hold a 3-0 lead and now the team is eliminated. Buehler was fantastic in the NLDS, posting a 0.71 ERA with 15 strikeouts through 12 2/3 innings while allowing only one run.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler will start Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the Nationals on Thursday. Buehler, not Clayton Kershaw, will get the nod in the series opener. The 25-year-old was lights-out this year, going 14-4 with a 3.26 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 215 K's in 182 1/3 innings over 30 starts. In two starts against the Nats in 2019, Buehler allowed four earned runs, walked four and struck out 13 in 12 1/3 innings. He'll be a popular DFS pick in postseason tournaments on Thursday.
Los Angeles Dodgers starter Walker Buehler allowed four hits across seven scoreless innings during Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles. He struck out 11 batters without issuing a walk. The 25-year-old now owns a 13-3 record to go along with a 3.14 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 201/28 K/BB rate. He is one of the top young pitchers in baseball that is a must-start option every time he takes the mound. The Dodgers' rotation is unclear at this point, but Buehler's next projected start comes against the New York Mets.
