News: Kershaw became the majors' first 20-game winner after a 14-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday. Impact: Kershaw (20-3, 1.80 ERA) pitched five shaky innings in his shortest start in 3 1/2 months, but the NL West-leading Dodgers roughed up Edwin Jackson on their way to a 13-hit attack that included four homers. Kershaw gave up three runs and seven hits while striking out nine in his sixth consecutive win. The left-hander, a prohibitive favorite for his second consecutive NL Cy Young Award, is 17-1 with a 1.39 ERA in his last 20 starts. (STATS, 1:54pm)

News: Kershaw registered his 20th victory of the season Friday afternoon, as he allowed three earned runs on seven hits and three walks while piling up nine strikeouts in a 14-5 rout of the Cubs. Impact: Kershaw certainly was not at top form Friday, but he did not have to be after the Dodgers' lineup plated six runs in the top of the first and 14 total for the afternoon. The 26-year-old southpaw has now reached the 20-win threshold for the second time in his career and seems to be a virtual lock to pick up his third NL Cy Young Award. Kershaw is slated to make one more regular season start in 2014, which should come Wednesday against the Giants.(RotoWire, )

News: Kershaw (19-3) boosted his credentials for the NL MVP and a third Cy Young Award with another big performance in a big start Sunday.

News: Kershaw improved to 19-3 when he tossed eight innings and gave up two runs against the Giants on Sunday. Impact: ...and his ERA actually went up from 1.67 to 1.70. We could cherry-pick from among a host of unbelievable stats on Kershaw's 2015 campaign, but for now we'll just note that he's gone at least eight innings in each of his last seven starts.(RotoWire, )

News: Kershaw limited the Padres to three runs - one earned - and three hits with eight strikeouts in Monday's victory. Impact: He's won an MLB-best 18 games, has a 1.67 ERA, is holding opponents to a .188 average and has a 0.82 WHIP. Those are all MLB lows. Pencil him in for a third NL Cy Young in four years.(STATS, 6:22pm)

News: Kershaw allowed three runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks while striking out eight Padres on Monday for his league-leading 18th win of the season. Impact: Kershaw was hurt by some shoddy defense, but pitched his way out of major damage. The lefty is getting National League MVP buzz to go along with his shoo-in Cy Young Award status. Only seven pitchers have won both awards in either league, with Justin Verlander (2011) the most recent. Kershaw will continue his quest versus the rival Giants on the road Sunday.(RotoWire, )
