Kershaw has won three straight starts of his own, with seven strikeouts in each win. Kershaw has allowed four runs in those three starts, with four walks in 22 1/3 innings.
Last season Kershaw had a pretty ridiculous run down the stretch. If this season he can duplicate his final 10 starts from last year (8-1, 1.38 ERA, 71 strikeouts in 72 innings), Kershaw's final 2012 numbers would look like this:
34 starts, 18-7, 2.42 ERA, 0.976 WHIP, 228 strikeouts, 54 walks in 234 2/3 innings.
Something to shoot for.
