Clayton Kershaw allowed eight hits and four runs -- three earned -- over six innings in a win over the Cardinals on Thursday.
Advice: The Dodgers gave Kershaw plenty of run support, which was good, because he wasn't at the top of his game. He still managed to strike out eight over his six innings, picking up his eighth win of the year in the process. The southpaw is now 8-5 with a 2.51 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 142/23 K/BB ratio in 143 1/3 innings of work. A high-stakes matchup with the division-rival Rockies is on deck for Kershaw on Tuesday.
