The Dodgers lost the series opener to the Phillies in frustrating fashion Thursday night. The Boys in Blue look to get back on track in Game 2 Friday at Dodger Stadium.
Clayton Kershaw, National League WHIP leader (0.733), was placed on the injured list prior to his scheduled start. Walker Buehler (4-1, 1.96 ERA, 1.064 WHIP) starts against the Phillies instead, on four days rest.
Kyle Gibson (3-1, 2.94 ERA, 1.069 WHIP) toes the rubber for Philadelphia. The right-hander has allowed 16 earned runs on 21 hits to the Dodgers in 16 IP over his career.
