Walker Buehler earned the win on Friday when he allowed one run on three hits with 10 strikeouts and one walk over six innings in the Dodgers 6-2 win over the Rays in Game 3 of the World Series.
Buehler was in total command from the jump in this one. He was working a no-hitter until the bottom of the fifth inning when Manuel Margot notched a one out double. Willy Adames then picked up a double of his own to score Margot, which would be the only run the Rays would score off of Buehler. The 26-year old hurler set a new personal playoff record with 10 strikeouts as well. Buehler has been terrific this postseason and is now sporting a sparkling 1.80 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and a 39:12 K/BB ratio over 25 innings. The Dodgers will look to take a commanding 3-1 series lead on Saturday when Julio Urías toes the rubber.
