News: Kershaw, who is in line to start Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday, finished with a 1.77 ERA in 198.1 innings to become the first pitcher in baseball history to win four consecutive ERA titles. Impact: Kershaw also led the league in wins with 21, complete games (six), and he missed a strikeout title by a mere three punchouts.

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, )
