Rookie Walker Buehler gets the start for the Dodgers , and he's been excellent at home all season. In 74.2 innings at Dodger Stadium spanning 12 starts and one relief appearance, he's posted a 1.93 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 10.1 K/9.The 24-year-old will have the advantage of unfamiliarity on his side, as second baseman Ian Kinsler is the only player on the Red Sox roster who has faced him before. He went 1-for-2 against him back on July 13 while he was still playing for the Los Angeles Angels.A strong start from Buehler would go a long way toward the Dodgers righting the ship.On the Red Sox side, Rick Porcello gets the start."I'm looking forward to the opportunity," Porcello told reporters. "That's a good ballclub over there. They're versatile, and I'm ready for the challenge."With a righty on the mound, the Dodgers will likely have lefty sluggers Max Muncy Matt Garza Jersey , Cody Bellinger and Joc Pederson in the starting lineup for the first time this series.Cody BellingerStacy Revere/Getty ImagesBellinger won NLCS MVP honors, but he's gone just 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the World Series.Porcello hasn't pitched since Oct. 17 in Game 4 of the ALCS when he allowed seven hits and four earned runs in four innings.Manny Machado (13-for-38, 2B, 2 HR) has gaudy career numbers against Porcello, so look for him to do more damage in the middle of the Dodgers lineup.Manager Dave Roberts will have a decision to make at second base with Brian Dozier. The veteran has been used largely as a platoon option against left-handed pitching, but he has nine hits and three home runs against Porcello in his career.One way or another, the Dodgers will need to find a way to win this one, as a 3-0 deficit would leave the odds overwhelmingly stacked against them.Final Score Prediction:Dodgers 5 , Red Sox 3All stats courtesy of Baseball Reference, unless otherwise noted. HOUSTON (AP) — Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber insisted Friday’s loss had nothing to do with his playoff woes last season.It just looked that way, a lot.A year after he was hit hard in a pair of postseason starts, it happened all over. The Houston Astros tagged him for three home runs and roughed up the Indians 7-2 in Game 1 of the AL Division Series.“I don’t think they’re related,” Kluber said. “I don’t think that the starts from last postseason had any bearing on today. I just made a few mistakes to the wrong guys.”Kluber’s performance followed a strong regular season in which he won a career-best 20 games, posting a 2.89 ERA across an AL-leading 215 innings.Last season, Kluber went 18-4 with an MLB-best 2.25 ERA in the regular season to earn his second AL Cy Young Award. In the playoffs, however Christian Yelich Jersey , Kluber’s ERA jumped to 12.79 in two starts after he allowed nine runs and four homers in two ALDS tries against the New York Yankees.Kluber has enjoyed success at this time of year, too, nearly pitching the Indians to the 2016 championship. Cleveland hasn’t won the World Series since 1948, and was counting on Kluber to take them far.Like the right-hander, Indians manager Terry Francona also said Kluber’s 2017 postseason was unrelated to his 2018 playoff debut.“Last year has nothing to do with today,” Francona said. “They’re a good team. He made a couple mistakes. They made him pay for it.”When asked if he believes Kluber is healthy, Francona — seemingly surprised by the question — replied: “Kluber? Oh, yeah.”Kluber struggled with his location early , hitting two batters after plunking only three in the regular season. But he didn’t allow a hit until the fourth inning when Alex Bregman homered. After walking Yuli Gurriel, Kluber gave up two-out singles to Tyler White and Josh Reddick that produced another run.George Springer led off the fifth inning with a 402-foot homer. Two pitches later, Jose Altuve also connected, sending a drive a drive to the Crawford Boxes in left field that put Houston up 4-0.“I really just left the ball elevated over the plate and picked the wrong three guys to do that to,” Kluber said. “You’ve got to be able to keep the ball in the ballpark in these games.”Marwin Gonzalez chased Kluber with a single in the fifth inning. In 4 2/3 innings, Kluber allowed four runs on six hits and two walks with two strikeouts.Kluber faced the Astros twice this season, both in May. In the first start in Houston, Kluber gave up two runs and six hits and struck out 10 in seven innings of a 5-4 win. Six days later Yovani Gallardo Jersey , he held the Astros scoreless in 6 1/3 innings in an 11-2 loss.“We have a lot of respect for him and we all know how good he is,” Altuve said. “We all were aware of that. Sometimes when you’re facing a guy like him, the only thing you can control is to swing the bat. That was our mindset. We were pretty good since the first pitch and good things happened today.”Astros manager AJ Hinch said finding success against Kluber meant staying patient and capitalizing on mistakes.“He’s not an easy guy to center up, so you’ve got to be disciplined about what side of the plate you’re going to pick and which of his pitches that move all over the place that you’re going to focus on,” Hinch said. “And don’t miss the one or two or three mistakes he might make from time to time.”
