    • Kershaw allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and five walks while striking out three over seven innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Tuesday. The five walks were a bit out of character, but Kershaw still fired a decent percentage of his pitches for strikes (60 of 97). The lefty got into trouble in the third inning after a pair of walks and an error, then later allowed a solo home run to Charlie Blackmon, but he was otherwise able to stifle the Colorado lineup without much trouble. He's now thrown 14 straight quality starts and sports a 2.45 ERA and 145:28 K:BB across 150.1 innings on the season. Next up is Monday's start at Arizona.

    • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Strikes out eight
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kershaw (8-5) allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out eight across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Cardinals. Kershaw had little trouble working through the Cardinals' lineup until the fifth inning, when three of the four runs he allowed crossed the plate. The damage began with a Tyson Ross solo home run and continued as the next four batters Kershaw faced reached base. As a result, Kershaw didn't turn in a dominant outing, but he continues to rack up strikeouts, now whiffing one or more batters per inning in seven of his last nine starts.

    • Kershaw will make his next scheduled start Thursday at St. Louis, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. The Dodgers want to give Kershaw an additional day of rest -- he last pitched Friday -- so his originally scheduled start Wednesday will be bumped back a day. The 30-year-old has a 2.42 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 134:21 K:BB over 137.1 innings this season.

    • Kershaw (7-5) struck out seven and walked one in six innings Friday against the Rockies, allowing two runs on six hits en route to a win. Kershaw, who has thrown 12 consecutive quality starts dating back to July 3, has a 2.42 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and a .220 batting average against. The southpaw is sporting an 8.8 K/9, his lowest strikeout rate since 2013, yet he still carries an excellent 134:21 K:BB in 137.1 innings. His next start will be a matchup with the Reds in Cincinnati.

    • Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Allows two earned runs
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kershaw allowed two earned runs on four hits and no walks while striking out three across seven innings Saturday against the Diamondbacks. He did not factor into the decision. Kershaw's final line is fairly impressive, but his lack of strikeouts and swinging strikes -- he generated only eight on 91 pitches -- are worth noting. Perhaps more importantly, Kershaw's average fastball velocity was at 90.8 mph, his third consecutive start around that mark. He's shown the ability to be effective with decreased pace on the pitch -- he stuck out seven and nine batters in the other two outings -- but his continued decreased velocity is worth monitoring as the season draws to a close.
