Dodgers Week 13 review: Clayton Kershaw reaches new heights

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers had their best week of the season, winning five of six games and shaved 2½ more games off their deficit in the National League West. They were one blown ninth-inning lead away from a perfect week.

But history will look upon the last week and think only of Clayton Kershaw and the greatest game he ever pitched.

Dodger Batter of the Week: Hanley Ramirez hit .400, homered, drove in five and scored seven runs, narrowly beating Matt Kemp, who has a 10-game hitting streak and hit .360 for the week with a home runs and six runs batted in.

Dodger Pitcher of the Week: The starting staff as a whole was great, but the ultimate was Clayton Kershaw on Wednesday pitching a no-hitter and arguably the greatest game ever pitched by a Dodger.

Week 13 Record: 5-1
29 runs scored (4.83 per game)
12 runs allowed (2.00 per game)
.834 pythagorean winning percentage

2014 Record: 42-35
329 runs scored (4.27 per game)
289 runs allowed (3.75 per game)
.559 pythagorean winning percentage (43-34)

Miscellany

Chris Perez didn't pitch all week, with his last outing coming on June 15. Don Mattingly said Saturday night it was just a coincidence that Perez hadn't pitched all week.
