A pair of rookies will square off in this key matchup. Hyun-Jin Ryu will take the mound for Los Angeles. Ryu impressed during his first year in MLB, going 14-8 with a 3.00 ERA. The southpaw owns an above-average strikeout-to-walk ratio, and finished the regular season with the eighth-highest groundball percentage among qualified NL starters.
The Braves will counter with Julio Teheran. Teheran received a lot of hype as a prospect, and he began to realize his potential in 2013, going 14-8 with a 3.20 ERA in his first full season in the majors. The righthander struck out 170 batters over 185-2/3 innings while keeping his walk and home run rates in check.
