    Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Will Smith and relief pitcher Joe Kelly celebrate the team's 6-0 win over the Washington Nationals in Game 1 in baseball's National League Divisional Series.

    Walker Buehler allowed one hit over six scoreless innings, Max Muncy drove in three runs and the Los Angeles Dodgers capitalized on mistakes to beat the Washington Nationals 6-0 in Game 1 of their NL Division Series on Thursday night.

    Buehler struck out eight, walked three and retired his final seven batters after earning the start over veterans Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu, whose 2.32 ERA was lowest in the majors this season.

    Dodgers rookie Gavin Lux and Joc Pederson slugged pinch-hit solo homers in the eighth.

    Nationals first baseman Howie Kendrick had two grounders roll under his glove, the second leading to the Dodgers’ second run in the fifth.

    Washington's Patrick Corbin stumbled through a rocky first inning. He issued four walks, joining Art Reinhart of St. Louis as the only pitchers to walk that many in the first inning they ever pitched in the postseason.
