Jon Weisman's outlet for dealing psychologically with the Los Angeles Dodgers, baseball and life

Fresh out of the box: Clayton chewables

[mlbvideo id=”34983651″ width=”550″ height=”308″ /]
SpraySo, what’s new with Clayton Kershaw?

  • He pitched his second complete game in a row — a 2-1 victory (the Dodgers’ sixth in a row) over Atlanta that was a shutout for the first 26 outs.
  • In tonight’s game, he struck out nine, walked none and allowed no fly outs to the outfield. None. (See the spray chart at right to see just how deep the Braves didn’t take Kershaw.)
  • He has 150 strikeouts and 15 walks this season, for a 10.0 K/BB ratio.
  • He has a 1.71 ERA in 2014.
  • He has allowed 12 earned runs in his past 99 innings. Taking out my trusty abacus … that’s a 1.09 ERA.
  • In his past 506 innings, dating back to June 2012, Kershaw’s ERA is 1.99.

    He is amazing …. I’m so glad he is ours!

    Kershaw pitched a great game, some fans ask for too much sometimes, he’s only human and can’t always be perfect. Another spectacular performance. He really needed it against Julio Teheran.
