News: Kershaw couldn't hold a two-run lead in a ballpark that's been rough on him Sunday. Impact: Kershaw was less than dominant, giving up three runs in seven innings. He'd been 8-0 with an 0.74 ERA his previous eight starts. "It was a struggle," said Kershaw. "I didn't have a great idea where the ball was going for most of the night and I left some balls up." He faces the rival Giants next. (STATS, 4:33pm)

News: Kershaw tossed seven solid innings, giving up three earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out eight against the Cardinals on Sunday night. Impact: Allowing no more than one run in any of his previous seven starts, Kershaw was unable to match the pace he has set for himself over the past several weeks. Nevertheless, the two-time Cy Young Award winner turned in a good effort to kick off his second half. As evidenced by a 1.22 ERA, 0.70 WHIP and 11.8 K/9 across his last 81 innings, Kershaw is just simply the best in the business.(RotoWire, )

News: Chase Headley snapped Kershaw's streak at 41 innings with a tying homer in the sixth, but the two-time Cy Young Award winner finished with a three-hitter and 11 strikeouts in a 2-1 victory Thursday night over the San Diego Padres. Impact: Kershaw (11-2) won his eighth straight start and came within 18 innings of the major league record set by Dodgers right-hander Orel Hershiser, who threw 59 consecutive shutout innings in 1988. Kershaw's run tied Luis Tiant for the fifth-longest in the expansion era (since 1961). (STATS, 5:18pm)

News: Kershaw pitched a three-hitter with 11 strikeouts against the Padres on Thursday to lead the Dodgers to a 2-1 victory. It was his eighth straight win, but his scoreless streak ended at 41 innings when he gave up a solo homerun to Chase Headley in the sixth inning. Impact: Kershaw pitched his second complete game of the season, as he walked one while giving up only three hits. Despite finally allowing an earned run for the first time in his last six starts, the two-time Cy Young award winner still managed to push his ERA down to 1.78 and now has an outstanding 126:13 K:BB for the season. Kershaw is undoubtedly the best pitcher in fantasy baseball, and he'll have his usual amount of rest heading into the All-Star game.(RotoWire, )

News: Kershaw nearly had no-hit stuff against Colorado again, allowing only two singles over eight innings as the Dodgers beat the Rockies 9-0 on Friday night. Impact: He extended his scoreless streak to 36 innings before being replaced by a pinch hitter in the ninth. Kershaw bottled up the top-hitting team in the majors in nearly matching the no-hitter he threw against the Rockies on June 18 at Dodger Stadium. Kershaw struck out eight and walked one. "You don't ever want to give up a run," Kershaw casually said. "I guess that's the goal." (STATS, 3:39pm)
