Leave it to Clayton Kershaw. While Roberto Hernandez treaded water and Zack Greinke had more difficulty than normal in their respective starts, Kershaw gave up one run in the first inning off a Ryan Braun single, and then shut down the Brewers from there. Kershaw's line: 8.0 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 6 Ks and 2 BB; good enough for his 14th win, which again is remarkable given his time on the DL at the front of the season.
A.J. Ellis hit his first home run of the year in the eighth inning. I repeat, A.J. Ellis hit his first home run of the year in the eighth inning. Let's hope that monumental blow sparks Ellis back into some decent batting, as his 1-for-5 performance sadly raised his batting average to .189 today. Adrian Gonzalez continued his hot streak by going 2-for-3 with 2 RBI; Matt Kemp and Kershaw also had RBI.
Off to Atlanta, where the question becomes whether to lead with Dan Haren or Kevin Correia. I'm peeking through hands over my eyes, either way.
