Stat Line of the Night — 8/21/2013 — Shin Soo-Choo
Stat Line of the Night — 8/22/2013 — Clayton Kershaw
Clayton Kershaw appears to be well on his way to earning the 2013 NL Cy Young award, and last night’s performance may have just solidified that status for the Dodgers’ lefty.
Kershaw seemed to be up to his usual routine against the Marlins on Thursday, as he allowed just five hits and three walks while striking out six over the course of eight shutout innings during the Dodgers’ 6-0 victory.
With the win, Kershaw improves to 13-7 on the season. He also owns a Major League leading 1.72 ERA and 0.86 WHIP, and he earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Thursday, August 22, 2013.
