      Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Named Game 4 starter

      Kershaw will start Game 4 for the Dodgers on Tuesday, Ken Gurnick of reports. Kershaw being named the starter shouldn't come as a surprise, as the Dodgers will give the ball to their ace in what will be an elimination game one way or another. He'll oppose a youngster in the Mets' 24-year-old Steven Matz.

      Mets stud SP Jacob deGrom potential Game 5 starter

      Mets standout starter Jacob DeGrom would receive the start in Game 5 against the Dodgers should it be required, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. DeGrom pitched a nearly flawless first playoff outing, tossing seven scoreless innings with 13 strikeouts, and could be rewarded with another National League Division Series start because of it. If that's the case, he would potentially be matched up with either Clayton Kershaw or Zack Greinke.

      Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw takes the loss in Game 1 of NLDS

      Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw allowed three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out 11 over 6 2/3 innings against the Mets on Friday, dropping Game 1 of the NLDS. Daniel Murphy, who had just one homer off a lefty in 126 regular-season at-bats, went yard against Kershaw to put the Mets on the board in the fourth inning. Kershaw was pulled after loading the bases in the seventh, and Pedro Baez promptly allowed two inherited runs to score on a single by David Wright. Jacob deGrom outperformed Kershaw on the other side, tossing seven scoreless with 13 strikeouts, and Kershaw has now taken the loss in five straight postseason starts.

      Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw to have short start Sunday

      Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to throw an abbreviated start Sunday, Ken Gurnick of reports. Kershaw will throw on regular rest, but with the playoffs right around the corner, manager Don Mattingly is expected to be conservative with his ace. The lefty is already just seven innings away from his single-season career-high mark, and has crushed his personal best strikeout number (294). He could conceivably be removed from the contest shortly after fanning his 300th batter of the year. Even though it's Clayton Kershaw, his upside might be limited in daily formats.

      Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw gains fortunate win Thursday

      Dodgers stud southpaw Clayton Kershaw appeared on his way to defeat Thursday after a pinch-hitter replaced him in the bottom of the fifth inning against the Diamondbacks. But his offense picked him up by turning a 3-0 deficit into a 6-3 lead. Still, it was a subpar effort by Kershaw, who has likely lost any chance for another Cy Young Award considering the performances of Jake Arrieta and Zack Greinke. He allowed three runs on six hits and a walk across five innings while fanning nine. This was a strange line for Kershaw, as he threw a season-low 80 pitches and drew 19 swinging strikes. It marked his second three-run outing in a row after not allowing more than a single run in 13 of his previous 14 starts. He still leads all of baseball with 281 strikeouts and holds an elite 2.25 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in 31 starts this season.

      Dodgers' Bolsinger starting Friday to give rotation an extra day of rest

      Dodgers pitcher Mike Bolsinger will start Friday's game against the Padres, manager Don Mattingly announced after Wednesday's game against the Giants. "We've been wanting to slip him into the rotation to either move somebody forward or to give someone an extra day," Mattingly said, per "Just if somebody needs a blow, kind of looking at all our guys individually and what's best for them." Mattingly said they don't plan to skip anyone in the rotation, so all the starters (Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Brett Anderson, Alex Wood and Mat Latos) will get an extra day of rest moving forward. Bolsinger's last MLB start was July 29. He is 5-3 with a 2.83 ERA in 16 starts this season. "You can anticipate he's going to be in this rotation for at least a turn," Mattingly said.
