Yankees’ wild-card starter only part of the delicate pitching plan

In this Associated Press file photo from September 28, 2018, Ryu Hyun-jin of the Los Angeles Dodgers throws a pitch against the San Francisco Giants in the bottom of the first inning of a Major League Baseball regular season game at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Kershaw is scheduled to start Game 2.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will open the postseason with a surprising starter in Game 1 of the NLDS.

Kershaw has started the opening playoff game in the Dodgers' last five postseason trips. He struck out 155 and walked 29 in 161.3 innings pitched.

Ryu missed extensive time with a groin injury this season but went 7-3 with a 1.97 ERA in 15 starts. Kershaw has allowed eight runs on 14 hits over his past 11 innings, while Ryu has given up only one run on 12 hits in his past 19 innings.

Severino went 1-1 with a 6.23 ERA in two starts vs. the A's, for what it's worth. With superb players like Pitcher Clayton Kershaw, Right Fielder Yasiel Puig and Shortstop Manny Machado, it is no wonder the Dodgers are playing October baseball.

The first game of the series is Thursday, Oct. 4 at Dodger Stadium.

The left-hander from South Korea compiled a 1.15 ERA in nine regular-season starts at home for the NL West champions.
