    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Aug 23, 2013
    Kershaw struck out six and walked three. Kershaw broke a scoreless tie when he hit a two-out single in the fourth to drive in the first of the Dodgers' three runs in the inning. Clayton Kershaw wasn't quite right Thursday, which for him means that he still pitched eight scoreless innings as the Dodgers blanked the Marlins, 6-0. Kershaw gave an immediate indication of his command issues when he walked Christian Yelich on four pitches leading off the bottom of the first inning. The Dodgers' Yasiel Puig hit a double that struck the center-field wall above the 418-foot sign, scored a run and had a sacrifice fly. Despite receiving a paltry 3.5 runs per game of offensive support the ninth-lowest rate among NL ERA qualifiers his 13 wins are within one of the NL lead, which would give him a second pitching Triple Crown to go along with the one he won in 2011, his previous Cy Young season.
