Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said yesterday that Hyun-Jin Ryu will start Game 2 of the World Series. Walker Buehler will start Game 3.

Ryu, a lefty, was 7-3 with a 1.97 ERA in a 15-start regular season. He pitched seven scoreless innings in the NLDS against the Braves and made two starts in the NLCS against Milwaukee. The Dodgers won his first one there, in which he allowed two runs in four and a third. He took the loss in Game 6 after getting lit up for five runs on seven hits in three innings.

Buehler, who was 8-5 with a 2.62 ERA in the regular season, went dour and two-thirds and allowed just one run in the NLCS clincher against the Brewers on Saturday night.
