Clayton Kershaw (8-6, 1.98) vs. Jordan Zimmermann (12-4, 2.58).
The Dodgers have ridden their hot hand straight through the All-Star break, taking this series from the Nats and putting themselves in a position for a sweep. And who's taking the mound today? Oh look, it's Kershaw, out for blood after taking a loss against the Rockies in his last start. Let's get him some runs before moving on to Toronto.
