The Dodgers have one more game left, which means one more opportunity to watch Clayton Kershaw pitch. Even though Wednesday's game against the Giants has no playoff implications, Kershaw will still take the mound, with medical clearance.
Kershaw has a chance to make some personal history on Wednesday. He is nine strikeouts behind R.A. Dickey of the Mets for the National League lead. Should Kershaw catch or pass Dickey, he will be the first Dodger to lead the league in strikeouts in consecutive seasons since Sandy Koufax in 1965-1966.
In 32 starts this season, Kershaw has struck out nine or more batters seven times.
