• Kershaw to be formidable Game 2 challenge for Cards

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Oct 12, 2013
    The Cardinals fully realize that confronting Kershaw, the 2011 NL Cy Young Award winner, represents a formidable challenge. In Game 2, they will get greedy and try to steal another win via the much-anticipated Clayton Kershaw vs. Michael Wacha matchup. Kershaw is the given here. Had anybody but Kershaw fielded the question, the proper answer would have been that it's remarkable when he loses at all. That's not surprising given that the Los Angeles Dodgers will turn to ace Clayton Kershaw , but even he hasn't been quite as stellar recently as his mound opponent - a pitcher who has made just 10 total major league starts. He will start this game coming off his first career start on three-day’s rest, which came in the decisive fourth game of the Division Series, but he threw just 91 pitches in that game while allowing no earned runs over six innings and will be on full rest on Saturday.
