The Los Angeles Dodgers succeeded in winning 10 consecutive games. Left-handed starter Clayton Kershaw was hit with a solo home run, but he did not waver and became the winning pitcher.
Kershaw started on the 17th (Korean time) 토토사이트 in the 2023 Major League Milwaukee Brewers home game held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, USA and led the team to a 7-1 victory.
Kershaw took 11 wins (4 losses) of the season with 3 hits (1 home run), 2 strikeouts, 2 walks and 1 run in 5 innings.
He announced a fresh start by making a tripartite inning in the first inning. After the Dodgers took the lead in the bottom of the first inning, Kershaw allowed a tie in the top of the second inning with a solo hit. However, the Dodgers started to lead again in the bottom of the second inning, and Kershaw’s good pitching continued.
Kershaw allowed a double to William Contreras after two outs in the third inning, but took a breather by catching Carlos Santana with a ground ball to the first baseman.
In the fourth, he dedicated a double to Willie Adames and a walk to Andrew Monasterio after one out. However, the crisis was overcome again. In the 5th inning, with one strikeout, he made a tripartite inning, and from the 6th inning, when the team led 4-1, he handed over the mound to Bruce Graterol.
He passed the mound with the victory requirements met, but Kershaw had only 71 pitches until the 5th inning. He could have made at least six appearances, but manager Dave Roberts didn’t overwork Kershaw.
MLB.com looked at, “Kershaw returned from the injured list after a left shoulder injury and recorded 1 run in 5 innings and 2 strikeouts in his 2nd start.” Kershaw made his return from injury on June 28 against Colorado after being placed on the injured list after complaining of shoulder pain.
He had no success, but at the time he threw well with 5 innings and 1 run. However, he only threw up to 5 innings in his second appearance. MLB.com said, “The Dodgers will continue to suggest Kershaw’s pitching method for the rest of the regular season. The club’s goal is to keep them healthy until the Hall of Fame vote.”
