Blog Kiosk: 7/11/2014 - Dodger Links - Kershaw Streak Stopped at 41 and Babe Ruth's 100th Anniversary

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.
  • ICYMI:  Carl Crawford is now back with the Dodgers following his rehab stint in Albuquerque.  Clint Robinson has been designated for assignment. 
  • So, do you want to work for the Dodgers?  Is social media your forte?  Well, check out what Josh Tucker just posted on twitter:

Kim Ng's name is being thrown around more and more as the ideal candidate for the Padres' vacant general manager position, which would make her the first female GM in a major professional sport. But could these endorsements simply be the byproduct of our desire to witness history? 

Actually, no. That's not it all. Ng, who will likely interview with the Padres this week, just happens to be the most qualified candidate out there.
  • Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Alex Guerrero homers in first rehab assignment game."
  • Via Cory DiBenedetto at the Daily Gammons, "Home Run Derby: Can it hurt your game?"  Based on the numbers provided it sure does.
  • BTW, today is the 100th anniversary of the debut of Babe Ruth.  As a special treat check out a Jim Axelrod story at CBS News that includes a recent interview with Babe's daughter, Julia Ruth Stevens.  Holy moly, she is 97-years old.  A video is included.
She still calls him "Daddy." She says, "I always did. When I think about Daddy. I think about him just being my father, but he really belonged to the world."
  • Also, via Lee Sinins at the Daily Gammons, "Stats report: Adrian Beltre sets a major league record."  It was for career total bases by a 3rd baseman.  Still think he's not a future Hall of Famer?
