  • The Grand Slam: Clayton Kershaw dominates again, but finally allows a run

    If not for one pitch, we'd be talking about Clayton Kershaw's 45-inning scoreless streak.

    That one pitch, an 88 mph slider that Chase Headley sent over the fence in the sixth inning, was all the San Diego Padres could muster against the Los Angeles Dodgers ace Thursday night. He threw his 14th career complete game, striking out 11 and surrendering just three hits. The Dodgers beat the Padres 2-1.

    Kershaw had pitched 36 consecutive scoreless innings coming into the game. He hadn't given up a run since June 13, before his no-hitter. The way Kershaw has been pitching lately, it wasn't out of the question that he could challenge Orel Hershiser's record of 59 straight scoreless innings from 1988. But it wasn't to be. Kershaw's streak was halted at 41 innings.

    Since June 2nd, Clayton Kershaw is 8-0 with a 0.74 ERA, 80 strikeouts, and 6 walks. Aloe Blacc wrote a song about him. #TheMan
