Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers look for a third straight win on Saturday night against the Braves in Atlanta. Kershaw enters the game in 29th place on the all-time strikeout list, with 2,603. Within striking distance are Braves legend Tom Glavine (2,607) and Chuck Finley (2,610).

Charlie Morton starts for the Braves, meaning Saturday’s game features pitchers who started in three Dodgers wins during last year’s World Series.
