All Clayton Kershaw did today was pitch 7 1/3 innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits and six strikeouts. He only finishes the regular season tied with Ian Kennedy in the National League for wins (21), first in ERA (2.28), and first in strikeouts (248). Congratulations, Clayton, on your first Cy Young Award.
Matt Kemp's bid for his own Triple Crown took a slight hit today — he went 1 for 5, lowering his average to .324 and putting him nine percentage points behind Ryan Braun. Three more games to make history, Matty!
