Kershaw allowed one run on four hits and a walk over 4.1 innings in Monday's win over Arizona. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

Making his first MLB appearance since July 3, Kershaw was pulled after just 50 pitches. He gave up a run on two hits and a walk in the first inning but he retired 11 of the last 13 batters he faced. The veteran southpaw lowered his season ERA to 3.33 with a stellar 132:20 K:BB through 19 starts. Kershaw is projected to face the Reds on the road this weekend where he should have a slightly longer leash.
