Post-Game 74 Thread: AKM (Another Kershaw Masterpiece)


If you liked Clayton Kershaw's 116-pitch, two-hit, ten-strikeout complete-game shutout against Florida on May 29 (a game in which he also had two hits and an RBI), well, uh, you'll like his performance tonight equally as well, if not a little more. Because he did it again.

Tonight Kershaw threw a 112-pitch, two-hit, 11-strikeout complete-game shutout against Detroit (a game in which he also had a hit and two insurance RBIs). Juan Uribe's first-inning home run and Dioner Navarro's RBI-double in the sixth accounted for the other runs.

But tonight basically it's all hail Kershaw, who proved his mettle against AL talent.

I like this Kershaw kid. He has a bright future.

That was a nice counterpoint to a day of ownership buffoonery

Sitting at the bar and I glance up at the TV to see the ESPN ticker list "The Lead: Kershaw throws 2-hit shutout." My first assumption is there was some sort of 0-0 tie. That is what happened, right? This "win" you speak of is not some sort of euphemism?

It would have been perfect if Kershaw knocked in the only runs as well.

Are those blonde highlights on Orel Hershiser (on ESPN right now)?

Pillar Box Red opened up, and I. Am. Enjoying. It.

Great day for Dodger fans all around!

The game last night was great! The only sad part was seeing the empty stands everytime a foul ball was hit.
