POSTGAME NOTES: Giants get shut out for 12th time, and this wasn’t Kershaw on the other side

No offense to Vance Worley, but he’s not exactly in the same class as the past four pitchers to shut down this Giants lineup: Cole Hamels, Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu. And yet he fell one pitch short… Continue Reading →The post POSTGAME NOTES: Giants get shut out for 12th time, and this wasn’t Kershaw on the other side appeared first on Giants Extra.

Kershaw, Dodgers blank Giants, 5-0

SAN FRANCISCO-Even a team's best is usually not enough against Clayton Kershaw. The San Francisco Giants on Saturday were far from it, playing sloppy defense and making too many mistakes on the mound. Kershaw was his usual dominating self, shutting out the Giants 5-0 to vault the Dodgers a half-game ahead of the Giants in the National League West.

Kershaw's dominance becoming routine in victory against Giants

SAN FRANCISCO – Considering all the circumstances, it might have qualified as an upset if Clayton Kershaw had allowed a run Saturday night at AT&T Park. The Bay Area ballpark is the place he has had the most professional success. A 6 p.m. start...

So, that Clayton Kershaw … I don’t see the point in going too deep into this game. Kershaw happened. You’re used to it. The Giants are, too. “He was good,” Hunter Pence said, shrugging. “He’s always good.” He is historically… Continue Reading →The post POSTGAME NOTES: Peavy arrives, has some fun with Bochy; Another zero-run night for Vogelsong; Susac gets his feet wet appeared first on Giants Extra.

Dodgers get another giant effort from Clayton Kershaw

Giants pound two hits against Clayton Kershaw, still lose

Giants pound two hits against Clayton Kershaw, still lose

Oh, but you should have seen those hits. To understand Clayton Kershaw right now, examine how Hunter Pence approaches him: with wide-eyed helplessness. Pence approaches everything with wide-eyed something -- wide-eyed itchiness, wide-eyed sleepiness -- but the eyelids stretch a little more when he goes up to face Kershaw. He has no idea what to do in the at-bat. Pence, who was given $90 million to hit baseballs, which looks like a bargain right now. Pence, who is almost certainly the best hitter on the team right now. Pence, whose freakish athleticism allows him to wow us continually on the...

San Francisco Giants drop into second place in N.L. West after 5-0 loss to Clayton Kershaw and Los Angeles Dodgers

Kershaw, Dodgers throttle Giants again

By Steve Kroner Maybe the next time Clayton Kershaw pitches at AT&T Park — say, during the Dodgers’ final visit to San Francisco this season, Sept. 12-14 — they ought to move the rubber back 10 feet. Clearly, this 60-feet, 6-inches stuff provides no challenge for him. The Giants were no challenge for Kershaw and the Dodgers on Saturday night. L.A. rolled 5-0, moving a half-game ahead of San Francisco atop the NL West. The Dodgers also assured themselves of winning this three-game series. The Giants had taken the previous five series between the two clubs. Kershaw threw a two-hitter,...

Clayton Kershaw fills leadership void

SAN FRANCISCO -- The St. Louis Cardinals treated one of the Los Angeles Dodgers' best hitters like a dartboard. Clayton Kershaw took care of that. The San Francisco Giants seemed to have regained the momentum in the NL West race and might have seized a bit more by adding a veteran pitcher to their mix before the trade deadline. Clayton Kershaw took care of that. There is an old saw in baseball that a starting pitcher can't be the team's leader because he only participates in 20 percent of its games, which carries a ring of truth to it.

Dodgers-Giants series big, but there's still more to season

SAN FRANCISCO - Clayton Kershaw said his next start would be like any other. But as much as Kershaw tries to downplay the significance of the Dodgers' three-game series against the first-place San Francisco Giants, this is reality:

Series preview: Showdown by the Bay

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Los Angeles Dodgers feel pretty good about the hands team returning: Yasiel Puig's odds of starting Friday night against the San Francisco Giants are good and there's some hope Hanley Ramirez will be in the lineup, as well. Both of the Dodgers' best hitters missed all three games against the Pittsburgh Pirates after getting hit on the hand by St. Louis Cardinals pitchers the series before. So, there's that. And weeks ago, the Dodgers lined up their top three starting pitchers, Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu, with an eye fixed on these next three games at...

Joakim Soria is not your typical relief pitcher

The Tigers traded for Joakim Soria at his peak. Can Soria maintain his recent excellence? The Tigers doubled down on Rangers' relievers by trading recent first and second round draft picks for another "proven closer." Joakim Soria is not just proven, but leads all pitchers with at least 30 innings in FIP. If you are not familiar with FIP, it is like ERA but more effective at predicting future performance. Compared to Clayton Kershaw's 1.74, Soria's 1.07 is fantastic. But Kershaw has pitched more than 100 innings this year, and more than 1,000 innings of domination since 2010. Soria has...
