Kershaw struck out 10, ending the game with a 2.01 ERA and 0.82 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Kershaw missed out on what would have been his majors-leading eighth victory when Randal Grichuk scored from second on a wild pitch in the ninth inning. Catcher Grandal failed to block the ball in the dirt and then couldn't track down the misfire, eventually finding the ball near the Dodger dugout as Grichuk sprinted home.

Analysis: Kershaw suffered a bruised calf in the first inning when he sprawled out to stop a grounder, but he said after the game it was nothing more than an annoyance. ''The calf really wasn't a problem, it was more of a stuff thing tonight,'' Kershaw said. ''My stuff wasn't great. I just kind of had to grind through it a little bit.'' Most pitchers would love to be off the way he was. Kershaw has won three straight starts, posting a 1.61 ERA with three walks and 25 Ks.
Apr. 20 12:00 PM PT1:00 PM MT2:00 PM CT3:00 PM ET15:00 ET19:00 GMT3:00 12:00 PM MST2:00 PM EST2:30 PM VEN23:00 UAE2:00 PM CT-Kershaw avenged a recent defeat to the Rockies by striking out 10 Colorado hitters and throwing seven sharp innings of two-run ball to earn the win Wednesday.

In his three other starts this season, Kershaw has registered a 1.64 ERA and fanned 26 in 22 1/3 innings while winning each. Next up for the star left-hander is another duel with Madison Bumgarner on Tuesday in San Francisco.

Apr. 4 8:45 AM PT9:45 AM MT10:45 AM CT11:45 AM ET11:45 ET15:45 GMT23:45 8:45 AM MST10:45 AM EST11:15 AM VEN19:45 UAE10:45 AM CT-Kershaw allowed two runs - one earned - and two hits over 84 pitches and seven innings of Monday's 14-3 rout of the Padres.

Kershaw is 5-0 in seven opening-day starts with a 0.99 ERA, the second-lowest behind Rick Mahler's 0.92 mark.

Analysis: Kershaw, who is healthy after missing 2 1/2 months last season with a back injury, was officially named the starter by manager Dave Roberts on Saturday, tying him with Don Drysdale and Don Sutton with seven.
