Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw scratched from Wednesday start


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw has officially been scratched from his start on Wednesday against the A's. Kershaw is dealing with a hip issue which is causing him to miss his start.

At this point, it does not seem like there is too much concern over the injury, and Kershaw is currently scheduled to make his next start on Friday against the Angels, according to The Orange County Register

Mike Bolsinger will pick up the start on Wednesday. 


Report: Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw could lose Wednesday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2015) Dodgers co-ace Clayton Kershaw could be scratched from his start Wednesday night against Oakland, a source has told Fox Sports MLB Insider Ken Rosenthal. He is dealing with soreness in his glute/hip area.

There has been no confirmation by the team. 

If Kershaw is indeed out, Mike Bolsinger will take his place on the mound and the left-hander will be pushed back to Friday.

Kershaw has had 13 consecutive quality starts and has not allowed a run since July 3. His ERA is at a season-low 2.51.


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.

Kershaw improved to 7-6 with the win. He now has an impressive 2.68 ERA with 174 strikeouts and 27 walks in 131 innings this season.

Kershaw, Bolsinger, Greinke to pitch in 1st series after break for Dodgers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2015) The Dodgers announced All-Star pitcher Clayton Kershaw will start the first game after the All-Star break on Friday against the Nationals. He will be followed in the three-game series by Mike Bolsinger and All-Star Zack Greinke.

Kershaw did not do as well as his teammate. He took the loss after allowing two runs on three hits and one walk in one inning of work. He struck out one.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Kershaw has appeared in the last five All Star Games and hadn't given up a run in his previous four appearances. The three hits were one more than his career total and his one walk doubled his career total. 

Kershaw became the first Dodgers pitcher to lose in the All Star Game since Eric Gagne in 2003.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/12/2015) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that his team's rotation coming out of the All-Star break remains in flux now that starter Clayton Kershaw has been named to the NL squad, per SB Nation. 

"With Kersh going now, we'll see what happens then, and go from there," Mattingly said of the rotation plans. 

Kershaw's day to start may be affected by how much he pitches during Tuesday's game - Los Angeles opens with a road series at Washington after the break.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw tosses complete-game shutout


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/9/2015) Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw threw a gem on Wednesday against the Phillies.

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. 


Dodgers P Clayton Kershaw strikes out 10 in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Kershaw had previously given up a total of three earned runs over his past three games. Against Texas, Kershaw gave up five hits. He did strike out 10 batters, which is the sixth time he's done that this season. 

Kershaw went six innings before being pulled. Kershaw now has a 5-4 record and possesses a 3.29 ERA. 

His next start is projected for June 22 against the Cubs. 


Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Ks 11 in no-decision on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw was his usually dominant self on Friday against the Padres, but he was forced to settle for a no-decision in the 4-3 victory. Kershaw went 6 2/3 innings, allowing just one run on four hits. He walked three and struck out 11, lowering his ERA to 3.21.

The only run Kershaw gave up came in his final inning, a solo home run by Clint Barmes to cut the Dodgers' lead to 2-1. Unfortunately for Kershaw, the Dodgers bullpen gave the lead up, but the Dodgers were able to get it back and record the 4-3 win.

The reigning MVP and Cy Young Award winner has now given up just three earned runs over his last four starts following Friday's performance. He'll look to get back in the win column in his next start, scheduled for Wednesday at home against the Rangers.


Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter: Kershaw didn't hit me on purpose


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2015) When you've been plunked by a Clayton Kershaw fastball, you've been seriously plunked. But Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter doesn't believe the Dodgers left-hander hit him on purpose Saturday.

That theory was considered by some because Carpenter has played a role in beating Kershaw in a couple playoff games, but he dismissed it.

"I was thinking about that yesterday," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "But I don't think he's the kind of guy who would hit me on purpose. He'd already come inside once during the at-bat. Then he threw a slider and curveball away. ... So, no. It was just one of those deals."

Carpenter, who was back in the lineup Sunday, said that the swelling on his right triceps had been reduced considerably. He added that he was still stiff, but felt "way better."


Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw tosses scoreless eight innings in win


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/7/2015) Clayton Kershaw did what Clayton Kershaw does on Saturday night. He tossed eight scoreless innings for the Dodgers in their 2-0 win against the Cardinals.

"I think I just executed some fastballs away that were pretty well located," Kershaw said, per MLB.com. "And maybe that was the best slider/curveball combination I've had in a while."

Kershaw came out of the game after throwing 106 pitches, striking out 11 batters and allowing just one hit.

"It's the evolution of Clayton -- finding new ways to put guys away," catcher A.J. Ellis said. "He has confidence in using both sides of the plate. You've got to game-plan, but it comes down to executing. This was probably his best execution of the season."

Kershaw (5-3) now has a 3.36 ERA with 101 strikeouts in 80 1/3 innings this season.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Kershaw (4-3) struck out seven and walked one during the outing. He lowered his ERA to 3.73 and has now pitched at least seven innings in his last three starts. He said after the game that he doesn't let the Coors Field's reputation as a hitter's park affect him, per MLB.com.

"If your stuff is good, it'll be good here," said Kershaw, who's now 8-3 overall at Coors Field. "The margin for error is a lot less."

Kershaw has earned a quality start in three of his last four starts and he has won those three starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday against the Cardinals.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

The Dodgers led 2-0 before the Rockies scored five times in the fourth inning off Kershaw, producing the biggest inning against the lefty since May 2014.

It was the fourth unsuccessful attempt for Kershaw, the reigning NL MVP and CY Young winner, to win his 100th regular-season game. 

Kershaw recorded the 1,500th strikeout of his career in the game.
