Walker Buehler in Game 1 against the Nationals.

The first game of their National League Division Series against the Washington Nationals went quite well for the Los Angeles Dodgers. On Thursday, the Dodgers came out with a 6-0 home win over the Nationals. A key part of that came from the impressive start they got from 25-year-old second-year pitcher Walker Buehler (seen above), who threw six innings of one-hit ball with eight strikeouts, three walks and 100 pitches. And that included a lot of remarkable pitches:

Meanwhile, the Dodgers’ first run came when Cardinals’ starter Patrick Corbin walked the bases loaded and then walked in a run. After that, Max Muncy drove in a run on a Howie Kendrick fielding error in the fourth, and then drove in two more on a single in the bottom of the seventh. And beyond that, Gavin Lux and Joc Pederson hit solo home runs in the eighth. That helped seal a 6-0 win for the Dodgers.
