  • LEADING OFF Brewers go bullpen Dodgers send out Ryu

The Los Angeles Dodgers chose to go with Hyun-Jin Ryu in their series opener against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday.

Hoping to break loose in their first postseason appearance since 2013, the Braves instead were blanked on six singles Thursday night, losing 6-0 to the Los Angeles Dodgers to begin the NL Division Series.

Anibal Sanchez, who will start for the Braves, didn't seem that fazed about the matchup.

Ryu has posted a better ERA (2.81) in his three career postseason games than Kershaw (4.35) in his 24 playoff games. Here are three ways for the Braves to bounce back and steal Game 2 away from the Dodgers.

Kershaw is 4-0 with a 1.73 ERA against Atlanta in the regular season and 1-0 with a 0.69 ERA in the postseason.

They were due to host Game 2 yesterday.

The only slip Ryu made was when he mistook the second out of the fourth inning for the last out and started walking toward the dugout.

Puig was 0 for 3 with two strikeouts and a walk on Thursday night.

Ryu threw a season-high 104 pitches in this one. The national anthem will be sung by Mia Sinclair Jenness, a voice on the Disney Junior animated series "Fancy Nancy".

Dodger manager Dave Roberts said the decision to switch things up "was more of just trying to appreciate that both games have equal importance, and what we can do to put both pitchers in the best position to succeed".

Democrats want a briefing from the FBI about the investigation, but Republicans declined that request. Meanwhile, multiple Republicans have said that the document contains no evidence against Kavanaugh .

"Obviously, it's a huge sacrifice for him", Roberts said. There was a lot of soft contact. "He was doing what he wanted to do". It was a odd start for Kershaw as he struck out eleven batters but the results were not good at all.

No, he didn't strike out many, but Kershaw's deep repertoire allows him to keep hitters off balance despite declining velocity. Buehler ended up as one of the Dodgers best starters and in the last month of the season, he pitched gem after gem against playoff contenders. Luckily though, the three runs were more than enough for Clayton Kershaw.

Statistics indicate pitchers are less effective the third time they face the opposing lineup. The blast came after a regular season when Pederson had 25 home runs, including eight leadoff homers. They struck out 10 times.

Six Braves pitchers combined to walk eight batters while striking out 10.

Ryu and Kershaw became the second pair of Dodgers starters to have consecutive postseason games with seven-plus scoreless innings.

The Dodgers started a two-out rally in the second inning after Pederson was hit by a pitch.

"I told myself I'd go hard from the get-go, and I am happy I was able to execute that plan", he said.

"If it does and he has to pitch, then we'll adjust and regroup from there", Snitker said. "It was kind of somewhat all right pitch, like a ball outside out over the plate".

The underrated Yasmani Grandal later followed with a homer of his own. The right-hander struck out five and walked two.

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.
