LHP Clayton Kershaw got the victory in the Dodgers' 9-5 win over the Diamondbacks in Game 1 of the NLDS Friday night at Dodger Stadium. Kershaw gave up just five hits in 6 1/3 innings, but four of the hits were solo home runs. CF A.J. Pollock homered in the third inning and RF J.D. Martinez homered in the sixth. But when SS Ketel Marte and C Jeff Mathis each connected off Kershaw in the seventh, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts came out with the hook. "I felt fine, it just wasn't coming out as good as I would have liked it to that last inning," Kershaw said. "They hit some good pitches, no, not really, I just didn't have much left. When you give up hits, you hope maybe one or two stay in the ballpark but tonight it didn't seem like that was going to happen. Obviously a frustrating way to end it but thankfully we had a big lead." The four homers were the most by a Dodgers pitcher in franchise history in a postseason game.

There may not be two American League players who differ more standing side-by-side than the Houston Astros' Jose Altuve and the New York Yankees' Aaron Judge.Altuve is a diminutive 5-foot-6. Judge is a giant at 6-7. But when it comes to the AL Most Valuable Player Award, the difference could be measured in angstroms.The members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America are sending in their votes right now for all of the major 2017 awards. There are some that will be, or should be, unanimous picks.How do you not give Judge the AL Rookie of the Year? Same goes in the National League for Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Both were by far at the top of their classes when all was said and done.Below is our take on the deserving winners in each race. AL MVP isn't the only white-knuckler. In the AL, the Cy Young Award race between Boston's Chris Sale and Cleveland's Corey Kluber is tight, too. In the National League, the MVP, Cy Young and Manager of the Year are all worthy of g...

LHP Clayton Kershaw (17-3, 2.12 ERA) is slated to pitch Monday in Philadelphia. "His routine is locked in," new Dodgers LHP Tony Watson said of Kershaw. "You always hear about starting pitchers, that they do the same thing and (are) regimented. He is probably the best I seen at that. Every day has a plan, and he attacks the plan. Everything is done with a purpose. He is one of the most prepared guys I have seen. The four days he is not pitching, he is on the top steps of the dugout (cheering). He is a great teammate. He always has advice. That is pretty special, I think."
