Dodgers Vs. Brewers: Clayton Kershaw Looks To Avoid Sweep

Kershaw is 8-2 with a 1.93 ERA in his last 11 starts.

Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers look to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday afternoon at Miller Park. The first three games of the series have been low-scoring affairs, and the Dodgers have managed to score just two runs. They turn to Kershaw, who is in search of his 15th win of the season.

Kershaw is 14-5 on the season with a 2.72 ERA. He leads the National League with 193 strikeouts and he is in the top five in ERA, FIP (2.59), xFIP (2.79), and FanGraphs Wins Above Replacement (4.9). He is 8-2 in his last 11 starts with a 1.93 ERA, averaging over seven and a half innings per start while striking out more than a batter per inning. Roy Halladay of the Phillies is the favorite for NL Cy Young, but Kershaw still has an outside shot with a strong finish.

Marco Estrada starts for the Brewers, making his sixth start of the season. The Brewers have won 19 of their last 21 games overall, and are an amazing 47-15 at home this season.

Thursday's 11:10 a.m. PDT game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more news and information about the Dodgers, be sure to read True Blue LA.
