You want fireworks? The Dodgers were happy to comply, starting with Kershaw's continued masterfulness. He pitched eight shutout innings, extending his scoreless streak to 36 innings, third behind Orel's 59 and Drysdale's 58. Kershaw also went 2 for 4 with an RBI at the plate. #howcanbradpennybebetterthanboth
The only bummers of the evening: Hanley was hit on the hand again. He's fine. Newly activated Rockies starter Jair Jurrjens went to the hospital for "breathing issues" after coming out of the game in the fifth. Best wishes to him. UPDATE: He's fine.
They may not be able to find that elusive fourth consecutive victory, but it's a Happy Fourth of July for the Blue!
