Kershaw Ks 13 as Dodgers eliminate Brewers 3-0
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw, left, high-fives Justin Turner after the team's 3-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 2 of a National League wild-card baseball series Thursday, Oct. 1, 2020, in Los Angeles. Kershaw, a three-time NL Cy Young Award winner, showed none of the fallibility that's plagued his postseason career. Only two of the Dodgers' nine hitters didn't strike out during that span; five of the Brewers didn't. As if the Brewers didn't have enough injuries already, catcher Jacob Nottingham got hurt and left the game in the sixth. Dodgers: Open the NL Division Series on Tuesday in Arlington, Texas.
