Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 134 – Clinch, Kershaw, Puig, playoffs

On this episode of “Dugout Blues,” Jared Massey (Dodgers Nation) and I are back after 2-week hiatus that was mostly my fault. But now we’re rested for the postseason push, or something like that. Since our last show, the Dodgers clinched the NL West and home-field advantage in the NLDS, thanks in large part to Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke. Speaking of Kershaw, he got to...

Los Angeles Dodgers-Clayton Kershaw Solidifies Cy Young Award Bid

Clayton Kershaw walked into the final Los Angeles Dodgers regular season game at home and in 3.2 innings he made history. It was that easy. He only needed 6 strikeouts to break a drought of years without a pitcher obtaining 300 or more strikeouts and he earned 7. In doing so Kershaw solidified why exactly he should win the NL Cy Young Award. Kershaw became the first pitcher in 13...

Who Clayton Kershaw thinks should win the NL Cy Young Award

With another dominant performance in an abbreviated outing on Sunday, Clayton Kershaw is making a solid case to win this year's NL Cy Young Award, but who does he think should be granted the hardware? After striking out seven in a mere 3 2/3 innings of work in a limited 60-pitch outing on Sunday, Kershaw notched 300 strikeouts, becoming the first pitcher since 2002 to do so. Kershaw...

Clayton Kershaw Records 300th Strikeout of Season

With seven strikeouts over three and two-thirds innings pitched on Sunday afternoon, Clayton Kershaw reached 301 strikeouts for the season. Despite clinching home field advantage over the New York Mets for the ALDS, the Dodgers still sent Kershaw out to pitch against the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Clayton Kershaw and Other 300 Strikeout Seasons

This Sunday, Clayton Kershaw has a shot to become the first pitcher to rack up 300 strikeouts in a season since Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling turned the trick back in 2002. He needs just six strikeouts to get there, so theoretically he could do it by the end of the second inning. He and his Dodgers brethren will be squaring off against the Padres, one of the strikeout-ingest teams...

Clayton Kershaw and his quest for 300 strikeouts

Six. There are only six strikeouts separating Clayton Kershaw from joining the 300 K club. To put that into perspective that is six batters, two innings of a nine inning ballgame, roughly half an hour. On Tuesday September 29 Kershaw pitched a complete game with 13 strikeouts in exactly 104 pitches against cross-state rivals the San Francisco Giants. A game in which the Los Angeles...

Dodgers clinch NL West after dominant Clayton Kershaw start

The Los Angeles Dodgers are NL West champions for the third straight season, and they can thank the two-time reigning NL Cy Young winner for clinching their crown this season.

Kershaw allowed one hit, walked one Giant hitter...

Clayton Kershaw freezes Jarrett Parker on knee-buckling curveball (Video)

Clayton Kershaw had his Cy Young stuff working on Tuesday. And by Cy Young stuff, we mean his filthy, borderline no-hitter, why-even-bother-to-step-into-the-box stuff. Take a look at this knee-buckling curveball he froze poor rookie Jarrett Parker with: That pitch had more hook than a Murphy Lee song. No surprise, Kershaw blanked the Giants in a 1-hit, 13-strikeout shutout to...

Clayton Kershaw and his chance at 300 strikeouts

Talk to any player in baseball and that player will tell you the most important thing is winning. That player will tell you he doesn’t care if he goes 0-for-4 if his team still wins the game. That isn’t always all true, but winning tends to be the priority, and at least in the moment, players don’t care so much about the numbers. It’s one of the many differences between baseball...

Clayton Kershaw may be having his best year yet

So, remember earlier in the year when Clayton Kershaw was done, or whatever the hell the narrative was? Over his first nine starts this year, Kershaw had an unacceptable (for him, at least) 4.32 ERA with 73 strikeouts and 16 walks in 58 1/3 innings. The good news for Dodgers fans is that the struggles were really limited to the first third of Kershaw’s season. In his last...
