Edwin Jackson gets only 2 outs as Dodgers rout Cubs

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw took the mound with a six-run head start Friday. That’s because Cubs right-hander Edwin Jackson, making his first start since Aug.  20, was in familiar form. Jackson gave up five of those six runs before getting yanked with two outs in the first inning, and the Dodgers strolled to a 14-5 victory at Wrigley Field. Kershaw, the National League Cy Young favorite, only needed to show up to become baseball’s first 20-game winner. He...

Kershaw shaky, but Dodgers rout Cubs

Kershaw wins 20th despite shaky effort - Clayton Kershaw (S) Los Angeles Dodgers

Clayton Kershaw had one of his worst starts of the season but still notched win No. 20 Friday, allowing three runs over five frames in a 14-5 clobbering of the Cubs.

Clayton Kershaw notches 20 the hard way

CHICAGO -- By the time the Los Angeles Dodgers had scored six runs and five hits, forced a pitching change and waited out Chicago Cubs trainers while they checked on catcher Welington Castillo's bruised ribs, Clayton Kershaw had spent about 30 minutes cooling down from his pregame routine and watching from the bench, antsy as always. "I'm going to have to figure out ways to stay loose," Kershaw said. "Obviously, Wrigley's not the easiest place, not a lot of places to go, but I'll probably have to go up the tunnel or somewhere else and get loose, again.

Final: Dodgers 14, Cubs 5

CHICAGO - Clayton Kershaw became the first 20-game winner in baseball this season on a day when he was far from his best. Kershaw lasted just five innings but the Dodgers’ offense picked up the slack, pounding out a 14-5 victory over the Chicago...

Rapid Reaction: Dodgers 14, Cubs 5

CHICAGO -- The Los Angeles Dodgers finally repaid Clayton Kershaw for a season’s worth of picking them up. The Dodgers’ ace was far from his sharpest Friday, but the Dodger bats pounded Chicago Cubs pitching, launching four home runs in a 14-5 win at Wrigley Field. In the process, Kershaw (20-3) became the first major-league pitcher to pick up his 20th win. With eight games left, the Dodgers extended their NL West lead to three games pending the result of the San Francisco Giants' game at San Diego later Friday.

Hunt and Peck: Links of the Week

With nine games remaining, here is how the division records are shaping up. If the Cardinals are able to get to 92 wins, the very worst-case scenario is a tie with Pittsburgh (and if Pittsburgh loses the game they have in hand, they would win the division outright with 92 wins). - Viva el Birdos what else is going on in baseball...

Game 154 Thread: Sept. 19 @ Cubs, 11.30a

Clayton Kershaw (19-3, 1.70) vs. Edwin Jackson (6-14, 6.09). If the Dodgers can just focus in their last nine games, they've got a shot at locking the playoffs by the end of today, and the division as soon as...hmm, I guess the home series with the Giants early next week (magic number is 2 for the playoffs and 8 for the NL West title). Let's start by watching to see if Clayton Kershaw can earn his 20th win, for only the second time in his career (2011, Kershaw's first All-Star year). The Giants don't start their series with the Padres until later in the day, so wouldn't it be great if we...

In Kershaw, Cubs' Jackson facing the best as he returns to the mound

CHICAGO – It’s a matchup the Las Vegas oddsmakers probably haven't seen a lot of action on. According to ESPN Stats & Information, for just the second time since earned runs became an official statistic in 1913, a starter with a sub-2.00 ERA will face one with an ERA of 6.00 or higher with a minimum of 20 starts. In this case, it’s Edwin Jackson (6.09) of the Chicago Cubs set to face Clayton Kershaw (1.70) of the Los Angeles Dodgers at 1:20 CT Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field.

Stock watch: Counting on Kershaw

RISING Clayton Kershaw, LHP: At the moment, the Dodgers are a mediocre team that has Clayton Kershaw. That’s a pretty good argument, by itself, for Kershaw’s MVP candidacy. In the rubber game of the Dodgers’ biggest series to date, Kershaw argued his way into pitching the eighth inning and got through it to provide a crucial bridge to closer Kenley Jansen and keep the Dodgers comfortably in first place. Now, he has two more starts to make sure they stay there, starting Friday in Chicago, when he goes for his 20th win.

Post-Game 149 Thread: We Make Party

DODGERS 4, GIANTS 2 My memory is a bit hazy. But I seem to recall inviting a number of friends over to watch the game yesterday and drink some beers and eat some nachos and chicken wings. And Clayton Kershaw was dominant, earning his major-league leading 19th win. And Matt Kemp jacked a two-run HR (his 20th) to put the game out of reach (a 4-1 lead at that point). And Kenley Jansen earned the save. And Juan Uribe and A.J. Ellis both had RBI, the latter coming when Uribe hustled all the way over to third, on his RBI single, given the Giants' two throwing errors trying to nab Hanley...
