Dodgers fans boo Dave Roberts for removing Kershaw from shutout

Ryu Hyun-jin of the Los Angeles Dodgers speaks at a press conference following a 6-0 win over the Atlanta Braves in Game 1 of the National League Division Series at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Oct. 4 2018

After stellar postseason start, Dodgers' Ryu Hyun-jin says rehab was worth it

They were due to host Game 2 yesterday.

Manager Dave Roberts says he and pitching coach Rick Honeycutt delivered the news via conference call to Kershaw, who has started eight of the Dodgers' past 10 postseason Game 1s.

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is being moved up two spots in the batting order to fifth for tonight's Game 2 against the Atlanta Braves.

"I'm obviously kind of nervous, but I think it's a good thing", Ryu said through a translator Wednesday. If Kershaw started Game 1, he would be on four days' rest, while Ryu would be on six days' rest.

"Maybe a tick, for sure", Kershaw said of earning some extra satisfaction.

The Dodgers and Braves are off on Saturday as the two teams head east to take the series to Atlanta. He can opt out of his contract after the World Series. "So Game 1, Game 2, game whatever, I'm getting to pitch in the playoffs and I'm excited about that".

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

"It doesn't have to all fall on his shoulders like it has in the past", starter-turned-reliever Alex Wood said of Kershaw. "But, you know, it was just a situation there you get behind against a guy like that, we were just trying to try and stop the bleeding there a little bit".

Out of the last sixth seasons, this has been the most turbulent one.

The Dodgers shows how they made the World Series last season flashing their power with three early home runs and jumping out to a big lead early.

"This guy is a potential Hall of Fame player", Roberts said. "I'm going to go full throttle from the very first pitch in the very first inning".

Stripling finished the regular season 8-6 with a 3.02 ERA, 3.42 FIP and 1.19 WHIP in 33 games (21 starts).

Kershaw was 9-5 with a 2.73 ERA during the regular season, fourth in the NL.

Ryu went 7-3 with a 1.97 ERA during the regular season, while missing three months of action with a groin injury. Kershaw had a 3.89 ERA in September. "And I think it led to a game like today's". That's when the fans in Los Angeles booed Roberts.

"It would be one or two of us", Kershaw said, smiling.

Like the Dodgers, the Braves aren't the same team they were a year ago. The left-hander struck out three and walked none in the longest scoreless playoff outing for a Dodgers pitcher since Jose Lima tossed a complete-game shutout in Game 3 of the 2004 NLDS against St. Louis. A trainer briefly came out to check on Kershaw, who threw one warmup pitch to prove he was fine. "Just because we started off hot, no one thought we would continue being that good and we did the whole season".

Acuna, who was 0 for 4 and struck out twice, said he didn't think there was any pressure participating in his first postseason game.

Another way to watch the Dodgers Braves game live stream without cable is with Hulu with Live TV where Fox Sports 1, Fox and other popular channel feeds are found, with some exceptions depending on exactly where you live.

Braves manager Brian Snitker said the "changeup was a huge pitch for him, just kept us off balance".
