Clayton Kershaw is showing no hang-over effect since throwing a no-hitter on June 18th. Since the no-no Kershaw has thrown 15-consecutive scoreless innings, including shutting out the Cardinals on Sunday to extend his scoreless streak to 28-innings.
Kershaw is now 31-innings away from tying Orel Hershiser’s scoreless streak of 59-innings, with 2 more starts (Rockies and Padres) before the all-star break Kershaw’s next challenge will be the Rockies at Coors Field. If Kershaw can get past the Rockies the competition will get a little tougher with the Cardinals, Pirates, Giants and the Braves in the month of July. If there is a pitcher up to the challenge, Kershaw would be the one I would put my money on.
Continued dominance by Kershaw along with Zack Greinke, Josh Beckett, Dan Haren, and Hyun-Jin Ryu; and if Hanley Ramirez can get back to the Hanley of last season, the Dodgers will be a force to reckon with in the West.
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
