Dodgers manager Dave Roberts asked how much he appreciates Buehler for a pitcher his age, said he was « a little bogged down » and « lived through it » « 

« I haven’t put everything together and grabbed or circled my head with everything he’s accomplished in that short amount of time, » Roberts said of Buehler. « Being a big game pitcher and really doing well on this stage there are only a few guys currently and throughout history He’s in a really elite company, and I’m just happy he’s wearing a Dodger uniform « 

Relying heavily on a four-seam fastball that stood at 97 mph, Buehler attacked all four quadrants of the strike zone with his typical equanimity: the slow and deliberate construction of his winding-up into a pitch explosive which generated 12 oscillations and misfires His curve ball, slider and cutter were also on point, the first time all four have worked in the playoffs after blisters hampered him in previous rounds

“The brittle ball – the form – to get these guys out of the fastball, I thought the curveball was really good at the start,” said Roberts “He got high when he needed They were synchronized tonight Austin [Barnes] did a hell of a job there with Walker It was funny to watch « 

Ahead of the game, Rays manager Kevin Cash compared Buehler’s fastball to that of New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole – a compliment about as high as one can give for a four couturiers With Tampa Bay going through five of them to strike, Cash’s words were premonitory, and Rays starter Charlie Morton couldn’t tie him zero for zero.

Buehler gave up doubles in the fifth to Manuel Margot and Willy Adames, giving up his only point on the night, although Barnes responded with a home run of two outs and two hits in the sixth He became the first player in a World Series game since Hector Lopez of the Yankees in 1961 to record a sacrifice and homerun Before the home run, Barnes had gone without a hitting in his previous 22 World Series games

The Dodgers have scored five points with two strikeouts and two strikeouts, tied for most in a World Series game this century, and have reinforced the difference between their offense and a group of Rays whose one-dimensionality this playoffs served them well, but was not effective in the World Series

Buehler came in his final inning, hitting Mike Zunino, Brandon Lowe and Randy Arozarena swinging to double digits – the first 10 strikeout game of his playoff career He extended his record six-game playoff streak to 11 He broke the record, which he shared with Randy Johnson, on his last start when he pitched six shutout innings in a Game six against Atlanta in the National League Championship Series

Roberts shot Buehler after 93 pitches, ceding the game to relievers Blake Treinen and Brusdar Graterol, who pitched scoreless innings Closer, Kenley Jansen, who threw harder than he did in the playoffs playoffs, gave Arozarena a solo home run, his eighth of the playoffs, which equaled the previous record set by Barry Bonds, Carlos Beltran and Nelson Cruz
