With his seven-inning, one-run performance on Sunday night against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, the young ace picked up his fourth win of the 2022 season and lowered his ERA to 1.96.
Buehler, having taken after Clayton Kershaw, the veteran in the Dodgers’ rotation, is turning into one of the most reliable starters in all of baseball.
Last night was his 100th career start, and through those first 100 starts, Buehler has made some impressive history, joining Jon Lester, Dwight Gooden, Ron Guidry, and other notable legends as one of the pitchers with the fewest losses in their first 100 starts.
In fact, Buehler has the fewest losses of any of them.

This is quite impressive and shows just how dominant Buehler can truly be.
He’s still young, but that fiery competitive spirit and sharp focus is ever prevalent with the star right-hander.
The Dodgers’ ace displays the poise of a seasoned veteran every time he is making a start.
To be on a list that consists of Lester, Gooden, and several other notable starters throughout baseball’s rich history is quite impressive.
You can tell every time he pitches that he has the makings of a legend.
Rarely does he have a start where he doesn’t at the very least give the Dodgers a decent chance to win the ballgame.
He only continues to put up amazing numbers each season.
He’s only in his fifth full season in the big leagues, so more dominant performances are sure to follow for Buehler.
