Tweet Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw was named as the National League’s Cy Young Award recipient by the BBWAA (Baseball Writer’s Association of America) Wednesday, with Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer winning the award for the American League. Kershaw led the majors in earned run average in 2013 for the third consecutive season, posting a career-best 1.83 ERA in 33 starts. The lefty also led the NL with 232 strikeouts in 236 innings pitched while posting a record of 16-9. Kershaw won the award in 2011 and finished second in the balloting for 2012. Scherzer started the season hot and continued his dominance throughout the year, winning a MLB-best 21 games to only three losses and posting a 2.90 ERA. Scherzer was also second in the AL in strikeouts (240) and was named to his first All Star team in 2013. He won his first 13 starts of the season and 19 of his first 20 before suffering his second loss of the year in early September. Last year’s winners were then-Mets right hander R.A. Dickey for the NL and Tampa Bay Rays lefty David Price in the AL.
