"If it does and he has to pitch, then we'll adjust and regroup from there", Snitker said.


Dodgers great Sandy Koufax was among those who gave Ryu a standing ovation as he walked to the dugout after his final pitch. He also made his first career All-Star Game. At the plate, he was hitting.238, with 14 home runs and 59 RBIs in 136 games. Walker Buehler went 6.2 innings, striking out three, walking three and allowing just one measly hit in the deciding game for the NL West. Muncy added to the lead in the fifth inning with a 2-run home run which all but sealed the game for them. "We just need to take a deep breath and go out there and try to have fun". In his second start of the series, Kershaw was even worse tossing 6 2/3 innings allowing five earned runs with a chance to close out the series.

The Braves' task of evening up the series on Friday could be one of their more hard games of the season as they face Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.

Hyun-Jin Ryu dominated the Atlanta Braves offense last night, throwing seven shutout innings with eight strikeouts and zero walks. The only other major league team to open a postseason series with back-to-back shutouts was the 1921 New York Giants.

Yeah, we all know about Kershaw's postseason reputation and occasional struggles (he entered Game 2 with a playoff ERA of 4.35 in 122 innings), but he delivered in a big way against Atlanta.


Joc Pederson's leadoff shot in the bottom of the first rattled Mike Foltynewicz in his postseason debut.

One more victory would put Los Angeles in the NLCS for the third straight year. The right-hander struck out five and walked two. Justin Turner began the first two months of the season trying to get healthy after breaking his wrist. "And I think they'll come back with a little more sense of what we're in for tomorrow".

He found trouble again in the second. Here are the biggest takeaways for Atlanta in game one.

Ryu allowed a two-out single to Freddie Freeman in the first. Right fielder Nick Markakis was hitting cleanup, followed by Suzuki, second baseman Ozzie Albies, center fielder Ender Inciarte, shortstop Charlie Culberson and Sanchez.


The Dodgers backed Kershaw with a double play to end the sixth after he plunked pinch-hitter Lane Adams leading off and Acuna Jr. grounded into a fielder's choice.
