All-Star Mike Foltynewicz, Atlanta's best pitcher all season, allowed four runs on three hits in two innings. Here are the biggest takeaways for Atlanta in game one.

Kershaw made the start on extra day of rest because Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts chose to throw Hyun-jin Ryu in Game 1 on Thursday.

Ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw was expected to start Game 2 of the best-of-five series against the Braves' Anibal Sanchez.

The Dodgers used a almost identical formula to win 6-0 in Game 1 behind Hyun-Jin Ryu, who allowed only four two-out singles over seven innings, and home runs by Joc Pederson, Max Muncy and Enrique Hernandez. Los Angeles led the National League with a club-record 235 home runs, and it was second in baseball to the New York Yankees' 267 homers.


Left fielder Ronald Acuna Jr., third baseman Johan Camargo and first baseman Freddie Freeman were the top three for the Braves. He said he did not have an issue with manager Dave Roberts' decision. Kike Hernandez has two home runs and six RBIs while slugging.818 over his past 10 games for Los Angeles. It took 163 games to sort it all out but the Dodgers just won their sixth straight NL West title after beating the Rockies 5-2. Los Angeles rookie left-hander Caleb Ferguson pitched a scoreless eighth inning, while former starter Alex Wood combined with Dylan Floro combined for a scoreless ninth. However, at times, they also looked like they would run away with the division only to be brought back down to earth against a sub.500 team.

"Hyun-Jin has had a great season and he's pitched really well for us", Kershaw said. "I think that's the biggest thing".

"And I think guys now, since we have experienced it, they've been through a lot, they've come back a lot all year", he said. Dodger pitchers struck out 11 batters. Foltynewicz got into more trouble in the second inning, allowing a three-run shot to Max Muncy after hitting Pederson with a pitch and walking Justin Turner.

We knew the Atlanta Braves would show how young they are in the playoffs, but in the first at-bat against the opposition?

"I've had struggles in the past against (left-handed hitters)", said Foltynewicz, after lefty hitters Pederson and Muncy did damage against him. "I mean, it's just our whole lineup is having a hard time". "I just try to keep my mind on the hitters that I'm going to face against the Dodgers". And in 2017, Ryu wasn't even good enough to make the Dodgers' postseason rosters when they reached the World Series. It's just that lots of people tend to remember the bad and it's apparently more fun to say "LOL playoff Kershaw" than it is to accept that bad outings against good teams happen on occasion.
