Buehler (7-0) earned the win over Arizona on Saturday, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out 11 over 7.1 innings.
The right-hander made it through 7.1 frames without allowing a hit before David Peralta led off the eighth inning with a single. Buehler was pulled two batters later after a Nick Ahmed single, and he was charged with a pair of runs after both runners came around to score following his departure. Though Buehler's fantastic outing won't enter the no-hit annals, he tied the Dodgers' franchise record with his 23rd straight start without being charged with a loss. He'll carry a 7-0 record, 2.38 ERA and 88:19 K:BB into his next start, which lines up to come at home against the Cubs next week.
Buehler (6-0) fired six scoreless innings on five hits and three walks while striking out five to earn the win over the Rangers on Sunday.
Buehler threw 64 of his 96 pitches for strikes in his six scoreless frames. He is 5-0 in his last six starts with just five runs allowed. The 26-year-old leads the Dodgers rotation with a 2.38 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP in 83.1 innings. However, his 8.3 K/9 to this point in the season is the lowest rate of his career. His next start is scheduled for Saturday in Arizona.
Buehler (5-0) earned the win Tuesday after blanking the Pirates across seven innings. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out two.
Despite an uncharacteristically season-low two punchouts, it was another gem of a performance for Buehler, who blanked his opponent for the third time this season while pitching at least seven innings for the fifth time. The 26-year-old did have a close call in the first frame after Ke'Bryan Hayes swatted a foul pole-hugging solo home run, which was reversed after the official replay review showed Hayes failing to tag first base. With the win, Buehler extends his streak of regular-season starts without a loss to 20, the longest in the majors, while his WHIP of 0.91 checks in at 11th overall. Buehler lines up to make his next start at home Sunday against Texas.
Buehler (4-0) earned the win over St. Louis on Wednesday, pitching six innings and allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight.
The outing won't go down as one of Buehler's best this season -- he allowed three runs for the first time in four starts -- but it was more than adequate to secure a victory in a game during which Los Angeles put up 11 first-inning runs. The right-hander ran his record to a perfect 4-0 and extended his streak of regular-season starts without a loss to 19, the longest in the majors. He has posted a 2.82 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 70:13 K:BB across 70.1 innings this season to further cement his place among the league's top starters. Buehler's next start is expected to come at Pittsburgh next week.
Buehler started Friday's 8-5 loss to San Francisco, going six innings and allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits and three walks with three strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.
Buehler pitched well despite his lowest strikeout total of the season, letting only two runs cross the plate in separate low-stress innings. Buehler has been extremely consistent this season, going between six and seven innings in every single start this season, though his 8.7 K/9 is a bit underwhelming for his lofty standards.
Buehler (3-0) allowed one earned run on six hits and one walk while striking out five across seven innings, earning the win over the Giants on Saturday.
Buehler gave up only one run, which came in the seventh inning. He likely could've had a scoreless outing if the Dodgers didn't let a blooper single drop due to miscommunication. The 26-year-old is unique in today's game, averaging over six innings pitched in an outing. The ability for him to constantly go deep into games while maintaining a 2.78 ERA and 0.89 WHIP makes him one of the better pitchers in baseball. His next start is scheduled for Thursday against the Giants.
Buehler (2-0) earned the win Monday against the Diamondbacks after tossing seven scoreless innings, giving up one hit and four walks while fanning seven.
Buehler has fanned at least seven in five straight games, but his numbers across the board haven't been dominant when excluding the strikeouts -- he has given up two or more runs in five of his last six outings. This start was his best performance of the campaign, though, and he will try to repeat this level of dominance when he takes the ball during the upcoming weekend series against the Giants.
Buehler's next start will come Monday against the Diamondbacks, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
The Dodgers will go with a bullpen game in Sunday's series finale against Miami as Buehler kicks off the series against Arizona (in Los Angeles). Buehler projects to take the ball a second time next week when the Dodgers travel to San Francisco. One win through six weeks has been disappointing for Buehler's fantasy managers, but around a few too many long balls he's been great with a 47:3 K:BB in 44.1 innings.
Buehler completed seven innings in a no-decision against Seattle on Tuesday, allowing four runs on four hits and one walk while striking out eight.
The right-hander gave up only four hits in the outing, but three of them left the yard. Mitch Haniger touched up Buehler for two of the long balls, and the other came off the bat of Kyle Seager. Despite the homers, Buehler had a strong performance overall, collecting eight strikeouts and inducing 17 swings-and-misses. His strikeout numbers were down early in the campaign, but Buehler has now racked up at least eight K's in four straight contests. He has yet to complete less than six innings in a start this season, compiling five quality starts over his seven outings. Buehler's next start is tentatively scheduled for Sunday at home against Miami.
Buehler allowed two earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out eight across six innings Wednesday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.
Buehler mowed through the Cubs with little trouble early on, surrendering only one hit through 4.2 innings. However, he surrendered a single to Matt Duffy before being taken yard by Jake Marisnick one batter later in the fifth to spoil his outing to some degree. Nevertheless, Buehler still pitched well and has now racked up a minimum of eight strikeouts in each of his past three starts. Though the team opted to give him extra rest after a rainout earlier in the week, Buehler currently lines up to make his next start Wednesday against Seattle.
Buehler will start Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Buehler was expected to start Monday's series opener before the contest was postponed due to inclement weather. He's coming off a tough outing Tuesday against the Reds, surrendering five runs and striking out 10 over 6.1 frames.
Buehler won't start Monday against the Cubs as previously scheduled, as the game has been postponed due to inclement weather, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Buehler allowed five earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out 10 across 6.1 innings Tuesday against Cincinnati. He did not factor into the decision.
Buehler allowed a home run to Jesse Winker to lead off the game but then settled in to throw four scoreless innings. However, he ran into trouble again later in his effort, surrendering four earned runs across his final 2.1 frames. On the other hand, he did manage to rack up double-digit strikeouts for the first time since Aug. 21 of the 2020 campaign.
Buehler gave up two runs on four hits while fanning nine across seven innings Thursday against the Padres. He didn't factor into the decision.
Buehler gave up a run in the fourth with an RBI single from Manny Machado that scored Fernando Tatis and surrendered another one with a solo shot from Trent Grisham in the sixth, but he was excellent the rest of the way. He's yet to allow more than two runs in any of his first four appearances and has kicked off the season with four straight quality starts. The right-hander is slated to take the ball next week at home against the Reds.
Buehler did not factor in the decision against San Diego on Friday, hurling six innings and allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four.
Buehler gave up a run in the second and another on a Fernando Tatis homer in the fifth, but he was mostly in control and left the game with the Dodgers up by two. He wasn't able to pick up his second win of the campaign, however, as it took 12 innings for the Dodgers to finally put their rival away. Buehler registered 16 swinging strikes in the outing but struck out only four. His strikeout numbers have been down this season -- the right-hander has collected only 12 K's across 18 innings -- but he has held opponents to only four earned runs across his three starts. Buehler's next outing will come in a rematch against San Diego on Thursday.
Buehler's next outing is scheduled for Friday at San Diego, Blake Harris of SB Nation reports.
Buehler last pitched April 9 against Washington, so he'll have six days off between starts. The decision to start him Friday is partly to allow Dustin May a shot to rejoin the rotation Wednesday, though the larger implication is that Buehler will now start the opening game of the Dodgers' series against the second-place Padres. Over 12 innings this season, Buehler has allowed only two earned runs while posting an 8:0 K:BB.
Buehler (1-0) allowed six hits over six shutout innings Friday, striking out four batters and earning the win over Washington.
Buehler quickly rolled through four innings without much trouble but had runners in scoring position in the fifth and sixth frames. He was able to get out clean and pick up the win on Justin Turner's solo homer in the sixth. The 26-year-old Buehler has eight strikeouts and a 1.50 ERA through 12 innings and has yet to issue a walk this season. Buehler will get another home start next Thursday against the Rockies.
Buehler allowed two runs on four hits while fanning four across six innings Saturday against the Rockies. He was credited with a no-decision.
Buehler gave up a home run to Raimel Tapia in the third inning and an RBI double to Ryan McMahon in the fourth, but he was quite good the rest of the way. Buehler was credited with a quality start, and despite the fact that he didn't have his best stuff, the right-hander still found a way to get the job done. His next start is scheduled for April 9 at home against the Nationals.
Buehler pitched five innings in Tuesday's Cactus League contest versus Milwaukee, allowing nine runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out five.
Buehler hurled 83 pitches in the outing, so there is at least some solace in knowing that he is built up to something near a regular-season pitch count. The right-hander couldn't keep the ball in the park Tuesday, however, yielding four long balls -- including three in the first inning. Buehler has struggled this spring with a 7.94 ERA and .351 BAA, but his 16:2 K:BB is promising and he clearly has the arsenal to again be one of the NL's top starters.
Buehler hurled four innings in a Cactus League contest versus the White Sox on Wednesday, allowing one unearned run on five hits and one walk while striking out five.
The only run Buehler allowed on the day came as the result of a wild pitch, and he improved his spring K:BB to 11:1 over 12.0 innings with the excellent effort. Clayton Kershaw has been named the Dodgers' Opening Day starter, and Trevor Bauer is coming off a Cy Young season, but it wouldn't be surprising if Buehler is the most effective Dodgers starter this season.
