LHP Clayton Kershaw (15-2) admitted he was a little rusty after a nine-day layoff but was effective enough to handle the Chicago White Sox in a 1-0 Dodgers victory on Tuesday. Kershaw (15-2) extended his unbeaten streak to 14 starts since May 6, a stretch that includes 11 victories. He allowed seven hits and one walk while striking out seven. "My fastball command wasn't great the first few innings but got a little better as it went," Kershaw said. "Nine days off is definitely not something I'm used to. So I'm thankful to get out of that unscathed."

LHP Clayton Kershaw allowed six hits and struck out 13 Sunday in a 5-2 win over Kansas City to give him a major league-leading 14 wins at the All-Star break. He did not issue a walk, and he didn't have a three-ball count until the last batter of the game. He needed just 99 pitches, 73 of them strikes. His effort was a major league first: No pitcher has ever had 13 or more strikeouts in a complete game while throwing under 100 pitches. He is the first Dodger to go into the break with 14 wins or more since Sandy Koufax won 15 in 1966. He's made 19 starts, the Dodgers are 17-2 in those games, and this was his 16th quality start of the season. In his last 13 starts, he's 10-0 with a 1.98 ERA and .187 opponents average.

So, I'm going to go with the latter for now, I think."

"It's a credit to him that when he doesn't have his best stuff he was still able to keep us in the game," Roberts said.

Fortunate to get a win there and it feels good to kind of salvage the series a little bit."
