Braves Face Dodgers' Ryu In Game 1 Of NLDS

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers selected Hyun-Jin Ryu to start at home in NL Division Series Game 1 against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday.

The defending National League champions said ace Clayton Kershaw will take the ball Friday in Game 2.

Mike Foltynewicz (13-10, 2.85 ERA) is scheduled to pitch the opener for the NL East champion Braves.

Ryu missed extensive time with a groin injury this season but went 7-3 with a 1.97 ERA in 15 starts. He had a 1.50 ERA in five outings last month and will be working on normal rest in the best-of-five series opener.

The left-hander from South Korea compiled a 1.15 ERA in nine regular-season starts at home for the NL West champions.

Kershaw (9-5, 2.73 ERA) will be making his 25th career postseason appearance and his 20th start.
