Clayton Kershaw-20-5 vs. Cory Luebke-6-9
Clayton Kershaw will take the mound for the final time today, as The Dodgers play the rubber game of this three game series in San Diego.
Kersh has already solidified himself for the NL Cy Young Award. heis 12-1 over his last 13 decisions. Kershaw is tied for the leage lead in wins, first in strikeouts, and first in ERA. this extra win could certainly help his chances, but I think hes already got the cy young won. Hes been the most dominating pitcher this season, and him leading the pitching triple crown should be enough to give him the Cy Young.
Kersh is 6-3 against San DIego, and he needs 9 strikeouts to take over the MLB lead again. (he trails Verlander)
San Diego willl counter with righty Cory Luebke. his last start in Colorado, saw him carry a no-hitter into the 6th inning. he allowed a two run homerun that game, but that was the only hit, in the one-hitter that he allowed while whiffing 9 Colorado batters, which was a career high for him. Luebke is 1-1 against the Dodgers. although we really havent faced him much.
normal lineup today playing behind Kershaw. not much really going on right now. The Dodgers are just playing out the schedule. after today, they have just three games left in Arizona, as the season ends after wend night's game. Arizona has already clinched the NL west division, and the Giants have been eliminated.
after today, the last three games will be a Bison watch. Matt KeMvP only needs three more homeruns for 40/40, and we watch as he pursues the triple crown.
The Dodgers are 79-78, and only need two more wins in their last four games to ensure a winning season.
