Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw masterful in complete-game win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:55 am ET) The dominance of Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw bordered on the absurd Wednesday night against the archrival Giants.

Kershaw matched a career-high with 132 pitches in a complete-game victory. He allowed one run on six hits and fanned a season-best 15.

The super lefty surrendered a run-scoring single to Angel Pagan in the sixth, but was otherwise nearly flawless.

Kershaw is now 12-6 with a 2.18 ERA that has reached its lowest point of the year. He has given up one run or less in 11 of his last 12 outings.

Kershaw went eight innings, allowing just one run on seven hits while striking out 10 and walking none, the fourth time in his last eight starts in which he has recorded double-digit strikeouts. 

The lefty's ERA continues to decline, going from 3.20 on June 27 to 2.29 after Sunday's outing. But he has three no-decisions in his last four starts.

Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw dominant in victory


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Clayton Kershaw's scoreless inning streak ends at 37 in Dodgers' loss


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/7/2015) Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw entered Friday's start against the Pirates in the midst of a 37-scoreless inning streak. That streak was snapped on the very first pitch he threw in the bottom of the first, as Gregory Polanco greeted him with a solo home run.

The four runs and nine hits each represent the second-most Kershaw has allowed all year. The rough outing also snapped a personal four-game win streak for Kershaw, as his ERA rose to 2.51.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw flirts with perfection in victory over Mets


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/23/2015) Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw was simply magnificent against the Mets on Thursday. Kershaw tossed a complete game, three-hit shutout, blanking the Mets 3-0. Kershaw did not walk a batter and struck out 11. He needed just 104 pitches (79 strikes) to go the distance, as he completely overmatched a poor Mets offense.

Kershaw (8-6) carried a perfect game into the seventh inning, but Curtis Granderson ended that thought with a lead-off single. That was a mere blip on the radar for Kershaw, who has now thrown three consecutive shutouts.

He has struck out a whopping 38 batters over his last three starts, without issuing a single walk over that stretch. Kershaw has become the first pitcher since 1900 to have three straight starts of 10 or more strikeouts with no runs allowed, according to Elias.

Poor defense, hitting victimizes Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) The last time Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw lost three consecutive starts was ... never.

That is, until Saturday. The super southpaw performed well again, but has received just seven runs of support over that stretch. And he got no support in his latest outing from a defense that committed two errors that led to two unearned runs.

Kershaw allowed only one earned run on seven hits in seven innings with no walks and nine strikeouts. The three runs scored on the two errors and a wild pitch. He settled down thereafter and pitched shutout ball over the last five innings, but his record still stands at an uncharacteristic 5-6.

"You really can't ask Clayton to pitch a whole lot better," Don Mattingly told MLB.com. "...We just weren't able to put any runs on the board tonight to overcome our couple mistakes."

Kershaw did lower his ERA to a season-best 3.20.


Dodgers P Clayton Kershaw allows 3 runs in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw gave up three earned runs in Monday night's 4-2 loss to the Cubs. 

Kershaw, the 2014 National League MVP and Cy Young Award winner, continued his fairly average season by giving up four hits — two of which went for home runs — and two walks. However, he did strike out nine batters.

“I don’t know. I don’t really care about giving up homers,” Kershaw said, via the Orange County Register. “Other than them being runs, it’s just a bad pitch, a mistake. As long as they’re solo shots, I always say, it doesn’t matter. Right now, it feels like that’s the only way I’ve been giving up runs the past two starts.

“If you make a bad pitch you make a bad pitch. Hopefully, they just stay in the ballpark.”

Kershaw is now 5-5 and has a 3.33 ERA this season. 

His next start is scheduled for Saturday against the Marlins.
