Kershaw and Greinke and pray for...what the hell rhymes with Greinke? No matter, as the good news is that Guggenheim Baseball Management's $147 million investment in a true #2 (#1a?) pitcher is off to a promising start. Greinke allowed only two hits and struck out six over 92 pitches in 6 1/3 innings.
More good news? Kershaw is no longer alone as the Dodgers' home run leader, as Andre Ethier hit a solo homer off the lefty Jonathan Sanchez. Both Matt Kemp (finally!) and Adrian Gonzalez had RBI-doubles to account for the balance of the team's runs.
Messr. Kershaw goes next, so if we're going to take this series, tomorrow is the time to do it. 6PM start — be here!
