Latest News
May 24 6:46 AM PT7:46 AM MT8:46 AM CT9:46 AM ET9:46 ET13:46 GMT21:46 6:46 AM MST8:46 AM EST9:16 AM VEN17:46 UAE8:46 AM CT-Kershaw allowed one run on three hits in 9.0 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 on Tuesday. Kershaw struck out 10, ending the game with a 2.01 ERA and 0.82 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Kershaw missed out on what would have been his majors-leading eighth victory when Randal Grichuk scored from second on a wild pitch in the ninth inning. Catcher Grandal failed to block the ball in the dirt and then couldn't track down the misfire, eventually finding the ball near the Dodger dugout as Grichuk sprinted home.
May 17 4:56 PM PT5:56 PM MT6:56 PM CT7:56 PM ET19:56 ET23:56 GMT7:56 4:56 PM MST6:56 PM EST7:26 PM VEN3:56 UAE (+1)6:56 PM CT-Clayton Kershaw improved to 7-2, allowing three hits over 7.0 scoreless innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Francisco Giants 6-1 on Wednesday. Kershaw struck out five, ending the game with a 2.15 ERA and 0.89 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Kershaw's 20th victory against the Giants came in his 39th outing and 38th start of the rivalry - and he's 12-4 with a 1.29 ERA at AT&T Park. He has allowed one or fewer walks in all but one of his nine starts this season. His next outing is Wednesday against the Cardinals, who he last faced in June 2015, throwing one-hit ball with 11 strikeouts over eight shutout innings.
May 13 9:51 AM PT10:51 AM MT11:51 AM CT12:51 PM ET12:51 ET16:51 GMT0:51 9:51 AM MST11:51 AM EST12:21 PM VEN20:51 UAE11:51 AM CT-Clayton Kershaw improved to 6-2, allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk in 7.0 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Colorado Rockies 6-2 on Friday. Kershaw struck out four, ending the game with a 2.43 ERA and 0.95 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Kershaw won for the fifth time in six starts, a span in which he has a 2.11 ERA. He's 12-1 with a 2.53 ERA in his last 14 outings against the Rockies.
May 7 9:59 AM PT10:59 AM MT11:59 AM CT12:59 PM ET12:59 ET16:59 GMT0:59 9:59 AM MST11:59 AM EST12:29 PM VEN20:59 UAE11:59 AM CT-Kershaw improved to 5-2, allowing one run on five hits and four walks in 7.1 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 10-2 on Saturday.
Analysis: Kershaw struck out nine, ending the game with a 2.40 ERA and 0.92 WHIP on the season.
May 2 8:35 AM PT9:35 AM MT10:35 AM CT11:35 AM ET11:35 ET15:35 GMT23:35 8:35 AM MST10:35 AM EST11:05 AM VEN19:35 UAE10:35 AM CT-Clayton Kershaw fell to 4-2, allowing four runs - three earned - on eight hits in 6.0 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the San Francisco Giants 4-3 on Monday. Kershaw struck out five, ending the game with a 2.61 ERA and 0.87 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Kershaw allowed two more homers, bringing his total surrendered to six this season.
Apr. 26 10:24 AM PT11:24 AM MT12:24 PM CT1:24 PM ET13:24 ET17:24 GMT1:24 10:24 AM MST12:24 PM EST12:54 PM VEN21:24 UAE12:24 PM CT-Kershaw improved to 4-1 on Tuesday as he surrendered one run and six hits in seven innings at San Francisco, walking one and striking out seven in a 2-1 victory.
Analysis: Kershaw suffered a bruised calf in the first inning when he sprawled out to stop a grounder, but he said after the game it was nothing more than an annoyance. ''The calf really wasn't a problem, it was more of a stuff thing tonight,'' Kershaw said. ''My stuff wasn't great. I just kind of had to grind through it a little bit.'' Most pitchers would love to be off the way he was. Kershaw has won three straight starts, posting a 1.61 ERA with three walks and 25 Ks.
Apr. 20 12:00 PM PT1:00 PM MT2:00 PM CT3:00 PM ET15:00 ET19:00 GMT3:00 12:00 PM MST2:00 PM EST2:30 PM VEN23:00 UAE2:00 PM CT-Kershaw avenged a recent defeat to the Rockies by striking out 10 Colorado hitters and throwing seven sharp innings of two-run ball to earn the win Wednesday. The Dodgers' ace yielded just five hits and one walk.
Analysis: The three-time Cy Young winner served up three homers in six innings in a loss at Coors Field on April 8. In his three other starts this season, Kershaw has registered a 1.64 ERA and fanned 26 in 22 1/3 innings while winning each. Next up for the star left-hander is another duel with Madison Bumgarner on Tuesday in San Francisco.
Apr. 15 9:06 AM PT10:06 AM MT11:06 AM CT12:06 PM ET12:06 ET16:06 GMT0:06 9:06 AM MST11:06 AM EST11:36 AM VEN20:06 UAE11:06 AM CT-Kershaw allowed four hits, struck out eight and walked one in 8 1/3 innings as the Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks 7-1 on Friday.
Analysis: Twenty-two strikeouts, 14 hits and just one walk in 21 1/3 innings. It's safe to say Kershaw is in midseason form.
Apr. 9 8:19 AM PT9:19 AM MT10:19 AM CT11:19 AM ET11:19 ET15:19 GMT23:19 8:19 AM MST10:19 AM EST10:49 AM VEN19:19 UAE10:19 AM CT-Kershaw lasted six innings and gave up four runs in his first loss to the Rockies since July 12, 2013, a 4-2 decision on Saturday.
Analysis: A two-homer sixth inning came back to bite him. It was only the third time Kershaw has allowed multi-homers in an inning over his career. Nolan Arenado also hit a homer off Kershaw in the first.
Apr. 4 8:45 AM PT9:45 AM MT10:45 AM CT11:45 AM ET11:45 ET15:45 GMT23:45 8:45 AM MST10:45 AM EST11:15 AM VEN19:45 UAE10:45 AM CT-Kershaw allowed two runs - one earned - and two hits over 84 pitches and seven innings of Monday's 14-3 rout of the Padres.
Analysis: He struck out eight and walked none in his seventh consecutive opening day start. He tied the team mark for most opening day starts in matching Don Sutton, who started seven straight openers from 1972-78, and Don Drysdale, whose seven weren't consecutive. Kershaw is 5-0 in seven opening-day starts with a 0.99 ERA, the second-lowest behind Rick Mahler's 0.92 mark.
Feb. 19 10:51 AM PT11:51 AM MT12:51 PM CT1:51 PM ET13:51 ET18:51 GMT2:51 11:51 AM MST1:51 PM EST2:21 PM VEN22:51 UAE12:51 PM CT-Kershaw is the no-brainer decision to start for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Opening Day when the left-handed ace will tie a franchise record.
Analysis: Kershaw, who is healthy after missing 2 1/2 months last season with a back injury, was officially named the starter by manager Dave Roberts on Saturday, tying him with Don Drysdale and Don Sutton with seven.
