Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced Walker Buehler will start Game 1 of the Wild Card Series, which will be played Wednesday at Dodger Stadium against a still-to-be-determined opponent. Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to start Game 2 on Thursday.

“We just talked about it and feel really good about that direction.
