Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw struck out a season-high 12 batters and only walked one during Friday's win over the Rockies.

Kershaw surrendered three runs (one earned) on six hits over six innings of work to earn the win. Kershaw's lone blemish were home runs to Troy Tulowitzki and Charlie Blackmon. He was able to lower his ERA from 5.84 to 4.42. Kershaw (1-1) has yet to throw more than seven innings in any of his three starts this season.

His next expected start will be Wednesday at San Francisco.

The 2015 RBI Machine, otherwise known as Adrian Gonzalez, was at it again Saturday night.

The Dodgers slugger not only boasts a ridiculous batting average of .523, which actually went down in the game but he added three RBI to his total, giving him 14 in 11 games. He brought home a run with a fielder's choice in the third and singled in two in the fifth. Gonzalez owns an eye-popping slugging percentage of 1.045.

He has struck out just three times in 44 at-bats on the year.

A franchise known for unveiling stud pitchers might be in the process of developing another one in right-hander Yimi Garcia.

Garcia has emerged as a late-game option for the Dodgers with closer Kenley Jansen sidelined. He has responded to the responsibility with a dominant stretch in which he has faced 21 batters in six innings with one walk and 10 strikeouts. Garcia boasts a 2-0 record and 1.50 ERA.

He has been particularly strong recently with eight strikeouts in his last four innings pitched.

Dodgers utiliyty man Alex Guerrero belted a two-run, pinch-hit home run off Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma during the fourth inning of Tuesday's 6-5 victory over Seattle.

Guerrero has been a pleasant surprise for the Dodgers, competing for playing time while Juan Uribe struggles at the plate. However, manager Don Mattingly told reporters following the game that the pecking order has not changed despite Guerrero's fast start (.417/.385/1.000).

"Nothing's changed for us," Mattingly said, per the Orange County Register. "When we started (the season), we thought (Guerrero would get playing time at) third base, left field. We're going to work him today in the outfield. The way he's swinging the bat – that's not really a surprise for us. It's been a nice surprise the way he's looked at third. The way he's looked in the outfield has been a nice surprise. For us, it's just a matter of us using our whole roster.

"It's a lot like JT (Turner). We know JT can hit and we know there are going to be plenty of at-bats over the course of the season and we're going to need everyone."

News
Good was good enough Saturday night for Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke.

Greinke was dominant in his first two starts this season. He was merely good against the hot-hitting Rockies and that earned him his second win.

Only a two-run homer by DJ LeMahieu in the seventh inning really marred his performance. He finished having yielded three earned runs on five hits in 6 2/3 inning with one walk and three strikeouts. His ERA nearly doubled to a still-wonderful 1.83.

Greinke has now allowed just 12 hits and two walks in 19 2/3 innings. He will try to continue his fine start Thursday in San Francisco.

News
The new emphasis on pitch framing as a possible valuable skill for catchers has spurred debate among players at that position, as well as the pitchers who throw to them.

Among those who have entered into the conversation is Dodgers standout right-hander Zack Greinke, who is known as a sophisticated analysist, but is not convinced that pitch framing is a skill set that can make or break a catcher.

"I believe that some catchers are better at framing pitches," Greinke told the Orange County Register. "But I'm not a believer that it's as valuable as it's being made out to be. It's part of a catcher's skill set. It's not the most important part. Just because he frames good doesn't mean he's a good catcher."

Teammate and stud southpaw Clayton Kershaw takes a similar view.

"You just want strikes called strikes. ... I gues I'm in the middle," he offered. "I don't roll my eyes at it and I don't pay a whole lot of attention to it either."

Their catcher, A.J. Ellis, also didn't pay a whole lot of attention to it at one time. But he does now. Metrics that showed him lacking as a pitch framer, as well as the wave of the future, forced him to change his outlook.

"I was motivated by the realization that that aspect of catching was becoming highly valued by this new wave of analytical front-office types," said Ellis, who spent time in the offseason working on framing pitches. "And I know that deficiency in the long run could affect my future employment."

Ellis added that "every metric out there tells me that I'm very deficient in that area" and that the Dodgers front office personnel advised him of their awareness of it during spring training.

One must wonder what umpires think about the new pitch framing metric. After all, they believe they're calling a strike based on the zone rather than how a catcher frames the pitch.

Dodgers pitcher Brett Anderson earned his first win of the season Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits and one walk in five-plus innings while striking out three in his team's 5-2 victory over the Mariners.

Anderson (1-0) served up a solo home run in the fourth inning. He watched the first three batters of the sixth reach before being pulled, and while one came around to score, an error to open the inning prevented the run from being earned. Anderson has delivered a 3.27 ERA and 7:2 K:BB ratio in 11 innings over two starts heading into Tuesday's scheduled matchup with the Giants.

News
Coming into the season, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly chose not to name rookie Joc Pederson the team's starting center fielder. Instead, he opted to say, "You're going to see Joc a lot in center field."

Well, at least Mattingly didn't lie in that regard. Pederson has started all nine games in center field for the Dodgers this season. Thus far, the rookie has been able to handle the everyday responsibilities.

Pederson reached base in every plate appearance during Wednesday's 5-2 win against the Mariners. He had a single and three walks. He also has one RBI.

While Pederson has had just one multihit game, he is batting .310 (9 for 29) with a .444 on-base percentage, .517 slugging percentage and .962 OPS. He also has one home run, three doubles, four RBI, six runs, seven walks and one stolen base.

About the only negatives for Pederson is that he has 11 strikeouts and has been caught stealing twice.

“It’s a tough spot for a young player, that eight hole,” Mattingly said, per the Los Angeles Times. “Tough spot for him to know when to be patient. He has a good eye so I think it’s just him staying with his game plan.”

For a guy considered questionable to pitch with a neck issue, Dodgers closer Joel Peralta was certainly impressive Saturday night.

Peralta was a pain in the neck to the Rockies. He closed them down with a shutout inning, yielding only a walk along the way to notch his third save.

The right-hander has yet to surrender a run in six outings as he holds down the role for the injured Kenley Jansen.

Dodgers pitcher Kenley Jansen was able to throw off the mound Saturday for the first time since foot surgery, reports the L.A. Times.

Jansen, who is currently on the 15-day DL with the foot injury, is pain free and still targeting a return to the big leagues some time in May.

"Really good day for me today," Jansen said. "Body's in shape, arm's in shape."

Jansen posted a 2-3 record with 44 saves and a 2.76 ERA in 65 1/3 innings of work in 2014.
