  • Clayton Kershaw: Kershaw blanks Giants over seven innings

The ace southpaw needed just 89 pitches to complete his seven innings of work.

Struggling is a relative term, and Kershaw entered Wednesday with a 2.43 ERA. It happened just after Cueto's high, inside pitch flew wildly past Posey, allowing another Dodgers run home for a 3-0 lead.

The rematch was a mismatch. With Kershaw set to face Johnny Cueto in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 6.5 runs.

Kershaw (W, 7-2) was his usual dominating self as he pitched seven shutout innings, giving up only three hits, and striking out five to pick up the win as the Dodgers ended a three game losing streak and the Giants five game winning streak.

The lefty hit leadoff man Denard Span in the batting helmet with a 73 miles per hour curve on his fifth pitch of the first inning, then was called for a balk moments later. They avoided being shut out thanks to Eduardo Nunez who took former teammate Sergio Romo deep to left for his first home run of 2017.

Things didn't go almost as smoothly for Cueto, who lost at home for the first time since August 30. His ERA is now 4.50, and he is 4-3 on the year.

Grandal said there's no way he knew what was coming on his lone hit, a two-run double in the first, even though he crushed a low 0-2 cut fastball well below his knees.

Grandal said "it caught me by surprise" and insists that wasn't the case at all in the Dodgers' 6-1 victory behind Clayton Kershaw on Wednesday, but rather just him trying to get ready to move "because I'm slow". 2B Joe Panik was not in the starting lineup.

Chase Utley scored on a wild pitch in the third on a pitch that was up and in to Grandal, which Grandal didn't appreciate.

Grandal then flied out to center to end the inning. nearly.

Both benches emptied, some players from both sides not really knowing why but going through the ritual of macho posturing required of them.

Things got heated in the late innings after Kevin Pillar apparently thought Atlanta reliever Jason Motte quick-pitched him, yelling toward the mound before Suzuki stepped in to calm things.

Chris Taylor homered for the Dodgers in the sixth.

Cueto gave up a single and double with one out. Cueto struck out Joc Pederson, but Yasiel Puig delivered a two-run single to left making it 5-0. "He's our closer, why wouldn't we want to go ahead and activate him?".

"Good win", said Kershaw to reporters after the game.

A sweep only helps a slowly rebounding Giants team's confidence.

Giants rookie Christian Arroyo started at shortstop, his third infield spot in as many days after playing third on Monday and second Tuesday night. The Giants wound up winning 2-1.

The two were in the middle of most of Wednesday's drama.

"A lot of second basemen would have gone the safety route to first base".

"We've got to be happy with it", Posey said.

That trend continued on Wednesday, with Kershaw in between 84-89 miles per hour most of the day with his slider, including finishing off three strikeouts with the pitch.
