Kershaw is Kershaw and that is plenty

Clayton Kershaw came close to another complete game shutout but he pitches a great game, striking out 11 and giving up only 5 hits and a walk. Dodgers win 2-0.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Offensively, Andre Ethier singled in two with two out, one of which was the headliner, Clayton Kershaw. But this game was on the mound as Kershaw was dominant against the Nationals, retiring 10 in a row before allowing his 5th hit, a single to Adam Laroche. Kenley Jansen came into to record the last out, striking out the 12th National of the night.

More to come on Kershaw.
