Add in a scoreless inning of relief in 2008, and Kershaw has a 1.93  career ERA against the Giants, with 34 strikeouts and seven unintentional walks in 28 innings. Yet he has no wins.

Barry Zito won his first start after the All-Star break, throwing eight shutout innings against the Mets. Since then, however, he is 0-8 in 11 appearances (10 starts) with a 5.49 ERA.

Something has got to give.
