Ryu allowed just one runner past first base, struck out eight and didn't walk a batter in his first postseason appearance since Game 3 of a 2014 NLDS.
Perhaps most interesting here was Kershaw wasn't pitching for strikeouts, he instead was in complete control of the Braves' contact. "When it comes to his day to start and to help his ballclub win a game, I had no concern that anything was going to affect him".
Dodgers rookie left-hander Caleb Ferguson pitched a flawless eighth, striking out two.
In their first two games of the National League Divisional Series, the Braves could neither score nor defeat the Dodgers out in Los Angeles, enduring a pair of back-to-back shutout losses.
Ryu allowed a two-out single to Freddie Freeman in the first. Roberts says the vibe between the two of them is "great".
"Never, to be honest".
"I told myself I'd go hard from the get-go, and I am happy I was able to execute that plan", he said.
Atlanta have lost eight straight series openers in the playoffs and have not won a Game 1 since 2001.
Atlanta though has continued a late-season offensive slump as this was the third time in the past six games they have been shut out. He also scored a run. The Braves collected just one more hit off Kershaw, for a total of two, as he pounded the strike zone with his left arm.
Kenley Jansen gave up a one-out single to Ronald Acuna Jr. before earning the save.

The object with the most distant orbit at perihelion, 2012 VP113, was also discovered by Sheppard and Trujillo, in 2014. For some 99 percent of its 40,000-year orbit, it would be too faint to see, even with today's largest telescopes".
The Dodgers loaded the bases later in the first.
"I think (Muncy's home run) was the biggest reason why I was able to pitch seven innings today", he said. "I think the toughest one was the Stripling", manager Dave Roberts said of setting the NLDS roster. "He got hurt quick, really". "I mean, not necessarily by choice, not that I wanted to do it. 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". "He said he hit it really hard, so he was surprised I caught it".
Snitker's overall assessment of his team? But L.A. traded for Machado to do big things in the postseason.
After Thursday's game, the 31-year-old said his grueling rehab was all worth it.
He said it was "by far" his best birthday.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw throws against the Atlanta Braves in Game 2 of the National League Division Series Friday, Oct. 5, 2018, in Los Angeles. Go laugh about how much "playoff Kershaw" stinks on your own time. "I just try to keep my mind on the hitters that I'm going to face against the Dodgers. They weren't acting like this was anything but a regular-season game, and that definitely resonated with me". Kershaw was stellar. The future Hall of Famer dominated in the playoffs with one of the more aesthetic outings of his career.
"Back then (in 2015), I made a decision to have shoulder surgery, obviously so that I could be back on the mound again", Ryu said.
