October 3 2019 3:12 AM

Walker Buehler will start for the Los Angeles Dodgers in their MLB National League Division Series opener against the Washington Nationals.

Buehler will take to the mound for Thursday's game one against the Nationals, ahead of three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw and 2019 contender Hyun-Jin Ryu.

The 25-year-old Buehler, who played his college baseball at Vanderbilt, went 14-4 with a 3.26 ERA this season.

Of all the Dodgers starters, he possesses the best fastball averaging 96.6 mph on his heater this year.

The Nationals were significantly better against finesse pitchers like Ryu and Kershaw this season, posting a .273 batting average against them, while batting .249 against power pitchers like Buehler.

Washington will counter with Patrick Corbin, who threw seven shut-out innings against the Dodgers in his only start against Los Angeles this year.
