Dodgers Highlights: Walker Buehler Dominates at the Right Time in the Postseason
Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler is a beast. From the 2014 College World Series at Vanderbilt to the 2018 NL West tiebreaker game to the 2020 Major League World Series, Butane is making it known that he is THEE big-game starter.
After a slow ramp up in 2020 was derailed by blister issues, the 25-year-old turned it on at the right time en route to his first World Series championship.
2020 Postseason Highlights:
Unfortunately, at the beginning of this postseason, the news seemed to be all about those blisters on his pitching hand rather than the performances fans have come to expect from the Buehl-dog. His starts in the wild card and NLDS may have done little to put doubt aside but as the postseason continued, the not-so-secret weapon just kept getting better and better.
Walker Buehler pitches like an ace should pitch in playoffs. Postseason career, Buehler 10 starts, 55.1 IP, allowed 36 hits, struck out 73, walked 21, 2.44 ERA. By series:
WC series: 4.50 ERA (1 start)
NLDS: 2.91 ERA (4 starts)
NLCS: 2.38 ERA (4 starts)

He was ready to go if needed in a game 7 situation, but thankfully the Dodgers closed the door in game 6.

Buehler is the Dodgers postseason ace in the hole. He thrives on pressure. He’s cocky, and backs it up.
I’m related to Walker Buehler. His Grandfather and I are first cousins. I would like to send an email to Walker and introduce myself. We have never met but, would like to when his team is near our town. Thank you, Bruce A. Buehler
