Kershaw, and triples lead dodgers to win 3-1

Dodgers  3 6 1
Dbacks   1 4 0

I was all ready to write about a nice quick shutout, but Arizona just had to screw that up. Oh well no complaints here. The Dodgers beat the Dbacks, for the 11th time in 13 games 3-1.

Kershaw pitched another excellent game, but Barry Enright also pitched well. Kershaw had a 2 hit shutout into the 9th inning, where he tired and had to be relieved after allowing a run off two hits,

while using an ugly lineup, the Dodgers offense scored just enough to win, taking advantage of two triples, and a home run.
in the third inning, Ellis walked, and scored on Trent Oeljten's triple down the line in right. Oeltjen was 2 for 3 with an RBI.
in the top of the fourth, Andre Ethier tripled, and scored on a Gibbons fly ball. 2-0 Dodgers.

Enright went 8 innings, allowing 2 runs off 5 hits, with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts.

in the top of the 9th Reed Johnson hit a monster home run to left, off of Arizona reliever Norberto. 3-0 Dodgers.

Kershaw took the mound in the 9th and after allowing a single, and then a run scoring double from Abreau, came out after 8+ innings, 1 run off 4 hits, 0 walks and 9 strikeouts. Kenley Jansen came in to close and while he was a bit shaky, he did the job. sitrking out two of the final hitters, to pick up his second save of the year.
Kershaw is good. damm good. this game reminded me of the game he pitched in SF, but this game he had 9 Ks. Kershaw is now 13-10, with an ERA of 2.91. He has 213 strikeouts, and over 200 innings pitched. he leads the team in just about every pitching category. yeah hes good, just sayin.....

it seems as though the Rockies have faded away. after losing that heartbreaker to the Dodgers on sunday, COL has lost 4 in a row, coming into tonight, and they lost again tonight 2-1 to the Giants. they are now 4.5 games back of SF, and 3.5 out in the WC. the Braves lost again, speaking of fading away, if the Padres lose, they will remain tied with the Braves for the WC. Yikes, please dont make me watch the Giants in the playoffs......

Game 2 tomorrow night at 5,  Ely vs. Daniel Hudson. Go Blue!
