Clayton Kershaw was incredible last night, once again. He pitched a complete game in the victory; striking out 11, waling 1 and giving up only 3 hits. Unfortunately, his scoreless-innings streak was stopped at 41 innings (now 3rd on the Dodgers all-time list) by a Chase Headley home run in the 6th inning. Nevertheless, the Dodgers eked out a 2 to 1 victory on the backs of Kershaw and some timely hitting. Photo above via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2014. Check out more of his photos from yesterday here.
