Kershaw was, of course, Kershaw. The Los Angeles Dodgers managed to escape from a 4-game losing streak thanks to the power of ace Clayton Kershaw (35).
Kershaw started in the 2023 Major League Cincinnati Reds away game held at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, USA on the 9th (Korean time) and recorded 7 innings, 5 hits, 2 walks, 9 strikeouts and no runs. The Dodgers, backed by Kershaw’s counterattack, escaped from a 4-game losing streak with a 6-0 victory.
In the bottom of the first inning, Kershaw sent out lead hitter Kevin Newman with a straight walk, but finished the inning in just nine pitches with three strikeouts and a double hit. In the second inning, he was also hit by Ellie de la Cruz and allowed the lead batter to reach base, then gave up a stolen base and was in danger of second base safely, but blocked it with two fly balls and a ground ball.
Kershaw struck out in the 3rd inning and got 2 outs on a ground ball, then gave Newman a double and was once again in danger of scoring, but he struck out the follow-up hitter, Matt McLane, and finished the inning without a run. The 4th episode was neatly blocked with a triple strike. After two outs in the fifth inning, Kershaw, who was briefly shaken by a hit and a walk, overcame the crisis by striking out Newman.
His biggest crisis came in the 6th inning. He allowed back-to-back hits to McLaine and Jonathan India and faced a crisis on first and third base safely. But Kershaw did not waver. De La Cruz struck out, Spencer Stearer struck out, and Tyler Stevenson struck out and continued the scoreless march.
Kershaw, who was on the mound in the 7th inning as well, made a tripartite inning with 10 balls and finished pitching for the day.
Kershaw recorded 9K in 7 innings in 2 consecutive games following the New York Yankees match on the 3rd, recording two consecutive wins. He pitched in 13 games this season and recorded 8 wins (4 losses), the most in the team, and an earned run average of 2.95, leading the Dodgers starting lineup with his unchanging skills.메이저놀이터
