Left hander Clayton Kershaw reminds me of  old-timey Dodger greats Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale.

I know I’m not the only Dodger fan who wishes Kershaw could pitch every game. Damn, that guy can throw. Nine strikeouts, only two hits allowed, seven strong innings and another shutout. Holy cow! With that kind of arm, who needs batters who can hit? Oh yeah, we do!

Stranding 10 runners is unacceptable spoilage. The only bright spots were the continued strong offense of Carl Crawford, and the two hits each by Adrian Gonzalez and Mark Ellis.

But Matt Kemp needs to get on the ball. He struck out three times and left four men on base. I love The Bison, and I know he had shoulder surgery, but he needs to start hitting.

So thanks to strong pitching, we have one series win and a 3-2 record. Let’s keep moving in that direction, Dodgers!
