By retiring 11 Diamondbacks so far tonight -- in order, I might add -- Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers has joined select company. He has passed the 200 inning mark, just the sixth Los Angeles Dodger to do so at age 22 or younger:â†µ
|LAâ†µ 22 & Younger With 200 IP
Kershaw, who including the playoffs threw 184 1/3 innings last season, has five strikeouts through four innings tonight, and 208 on the season. The number of left-handed pitchers in Los Angeles Dodger history to amass 200 strikeouts in a season are Sandy Koufax, Fernando Valenzuela, and Kershaw.â†µ
Select company, indeed.
