3 takeaways from NLDS Game 2

Dodgers fans belt out support in game 1

They were due to host Game 2 yesterday.

"When you look at it and giving each guy one extra day of rest as opposed to Hyun-Jin and Clayton on regular rest and then you look at Game 3, Walker (Buehler) on an extra day, made more sense to us", Roberts said.

Buehler is scheduled to start for the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NL Division Series against the Atlanta Braves.

"I think that it was one of the best outings that I've seen", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.

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

The Braves have lost eight straight series openers in the postseason. He can opt out of his contract after the World Series. But 163 has got to be somewhere between a regular game and a playoff game.

The Braves didn't advance a runner past second base in the game.

"I wasn't sure how I was going to feel, and I was a little nervous before the game, but there is a lot of experience on this team and that really helped me out", said Muncy, who was playing in his first postseason game.

If the series goes to a deciding fifth game, Roberts would again have to decide between Ryu and the ace who has been the face of the franchise for years.

Relievers Caleb Ferguson, Alex Wood and Dylan Floro completed the shutout. "When they are getting on and setting the tone for the guys behind them, it takes the pressure off".

Despite the harsh words, the Trump administration has had a close relationship with Saudi Arabia , which it views as a bulwark against Iran's ambitions in the region.

Ryu is eager to make a mark after not pitching in the postseason since 2014, having been injured for most of the 2015 and '16 seasons.

LA's offense also launched three home runs during the game, which was important because they only had five hits overall.

"Obviously, it's a huge sacrifice for him", Roberts said. He only struck out one hitter (Nick Markakis looking on a lovely curveball to end the first with Acuna standing on third) through seven incredibly efficient innings (73 pitches). On a regular four days of rest, he has a 3.21 ERA and 7.6 strikeouts per nine innings. Fellow lefty Kershaw was 9-5 with a 2.73 ERA and team-high 155 strikeouts. Kershaw had a 3.89 ERA in September. "I think that's the biggest thing".

Los Angeles will go for the sweep Sunday at Atlanta as it aims for its third consecutive NL Championship Series.

"You can't blame any one person", Snitker said.

The Braves are starting Anibal Sanchez, and Puig has crushed righties this year.

The Dodgers are 17-6 against Atlanta at Dodger Stadium since the start of the 2013 season, including a 3-0 record in the postseason.

Under manager Brian Snitker, the Braves went from 72 wins in 2017 to 90 and the NL East title this year, surprising many with the quick turnaround. I mean, we're lucky he got out of the first inning.

However, it serves as a reminder that Kershaw will always have those doubters after good performances and deservedly so because he is his own biggest critic.

Led by so-called "Baby Braves" - 20-year-old left fielder Ronald Acuna Jr. and 21-year-old second baseman Ozzie Albies - Atlanta has gotten production from veterans Nick Markakis and Freddie Freeman as well.
