Clayton Kershaw won his 13th not by overpowering the NL West-worst Padres; he only had four Ks against two walks and six hits, including a HR to Orlando Hudson. But what he lacked in pure force, Kershaw was able to compensate with efficiency and endurance (only 108 pitches over nine full innings of work). Add a 2-for-4 night from Matt Kemp (double and a triple), a surprising RBI from James Loney (sacrifice fly), and a 2-for-3 night from Casey Blake, and the Dodgers pick up the series-opening victory at Petco Park.
Hey, the Giants just coughed up a 1-0 lead at home to lose 5-2, after Matt Cain fell apart in the sixth inning. Imagine that, Arizona being only one game back of the NL West lead. Wow.
