Clayton Kershaw strikes out 11 in win No. 21


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw ended the regular season on a high note Wednesday, giving up just one earned run on eight hits in eight innings while striking out 11 to pick up win No. 21 in his team's 9-1 victory over the Giants.

Kershaw (21-3) closes the season with wins in seven straight games, throwing eight innings a remarkable six times during that stretch. He even got things done at the plate Wednesday, smacking an RBI triple -- his first career three-bagger -- to get back the run he surrendered and tie the game 1-1. The Dodgers tacked on eight more unanswered runs later in the game to clinch the NL West title. The overwhelming Cy Young favorite, Kershaw ends the regular season with a 1.77 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 239:31 K:BB ratio in 198 1/3 innings.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw became the league's first 20-game winner Friday afternoon in Chicago against the Cubs.

Kershaw (20-3) bounced back from a rough opening frame and received more than enough run support to get the job done. He permitted a run-scoring double to Anthony Rizzo, a run-scoring triple to Jorge Soler and a sacrifice fly in the first for his only damage of the afternoon. He permitted three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out nine over five innings of a 14-5 victory.

Over his last four starts covering 29 innings, Kershaw has allowed seven earned runs. He owns a 1.80 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP over 26 starts (190 1/3 innings). His next start will come Wednesday at home against San Francisco.

Kershaw raised his record to a ridiculous 19-3 and lowered his ERA to an eye-popping 1.70 by surrendering just two runs on seven hits in eight innings to the Giants. He walked one and struck out nine. He was hurt only by RBI singles off the bats of sizzling Buster Posey and Matt Duffy.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Clayton Kershaw tosses complete game in loss


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw went the distance in a loss Saturday.

Kershaw gave up three runs on five hits over nine innings. He struck out 11 and did not issue any walks. Home runs were a big problem for Kershaw. He gave up a two-run shot to Ryan Braun in the fourth inning, and gave up a solo home run to Carlos Gomez in the sixth. The Brewers proved to be swing-happy otherwise, helping Kershaw get through the complete game. He threw 97 pitches during the outing.

With the loss, Kershaw dropped to 14-3. He'll take on the Mets in his next start.


Clayton Kershaw improves to 11-0 in last 13 starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw got the job done on the mound and at the plate during a 5-1 win Sunday at Milwaukee.

The left-handed hurler allowed one run on six hits and two walks, while striking out six in eight innings. He went 1 for 2 with one walk, one run and one RBI as well.

Kershaw (14-2) fell behind early Sunday, allowing an RBI single to Ryan Braun in the first inning. But it would be his only blemish on the afternoon. 

The lefty ace has not taken a loss since May 28. He has won his last 11 decisions spanning 13 starts. He's allowed more than two runs just twice in those 13 starts.

Kershaw will make his next start in a rematch with the Brewers Friday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Kershaw had surrendered more than one earned run just once in his previous 10 starts before doing so Tuesday. He watched two runs come home on a double in the second inning and another score on another double in the third. Kershaw owns a 1.82 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 157:17 K:BB ratio in 128 1/3 innings. He's set to face the Brewers Sunday.

Since June 1, Kershaw is 10-0 with a 0.94 ERA and a 104:8 K:BB ratio in 11 starts. The reigning National League Cy Young Award winner is somehow managing to improve his numbers from last season. He has four complete games and owns a 1.71 ERA and a 0.82 WHIP over 121 1/3 innings of work. His next start will come Tuesday at home against the Angels.

He owns a major-league-leading 1.76 ERA along with a 141:15 K:BB ratio in 112 1/3 innings. Kershaw will look to keep rolling Thursday against the Braves.


Clayton Kershaw settles for no-decision in St. Louis


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) For the second time this season, Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw was unable to factor into the decision in his team's 3-2 win over the Cardinals Sunday night. The left-hander yielded three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out eight over seven innings of work.

It was Kershaw's first no-decision since May 11. Over his last two starts covering 16 innings, Kershaw has allowed four earned runs. He owns a 1.92 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP over 15 starts (103 1/3 innings). His next start will come Saturday against the Giants in San Francisco.

Scoreless streak ends for Clayton Kershaw despite complete game gem


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw saw his dominant scoreless streak come to an end at 41 2/3 innings, but still posted a complete game victory Thursday night against the Padres.

The right-hander allowed one run on three hits and one walk while striking out 11 over nine innings of 2-1 win. Of his 115 pitches, 85 were strikes.

Kerhsaw has three complete games this season. He owns a 1.78 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP over 14 starts (96 1/3 innings). The Dodgers have not announced their pitching plans after the All-Star break, but he will likely be one of the first Los Angeles pitchers to take the hill after the break.

Kershaw (7-2) quite simply delivered one of the best pitching performances in the history of baseball, as his 102 Game Score was the second-highest ever in a nine-inning performance, per Yahoo!
