Thankfully, they are now one game above .500 in the rivalry, as they rode a stellar Clayton Kershaw to a 9-0 shutout victory.
On the anniversary of his no-hitter, Kershaw brought the throwback results even if the way he did it continues to be different. Alex Verdugo Kershaw threw 100 pitches Kershaw threw 100 pitches on the night, going seven shutout innings. He surrendered just two singles, two walks, and the aforementioned "double" that Verdugo just misread.
The offense took three batters to get their engines revved up today. The Game Pederson started the stuff with a lead-off dong to the left, his 19th of the season

While the bats continued to strand runner, they at least scored some tonight. Chris Taylor it 3-0.
After a long wait, the Dodgers finally cashed in on scoring chances in the 7th and blew the game open with a six-run inning. With one out, Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger singled out to put runners on the corners, and David Freese Evan Longoria
