The Dodgers turned to Kershaw in the last game of their series against the Mets in hopes of taking two out of three. Yet again, Chase Utley kickstarted Dodgers offense Sunday night with a single to right field in the third inning. Two batters later, Justin Turner hit into a fielder’s choice which brought Utley across the plate and gave the Dodgers the lead.

In the fifth inning, Adrian Gonzalez’s single knocked in Corey Seager to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead. Asdrubal Cabrera homered to left center in the sixth inning putting the Mets on the board. In the eighth, Curtis Granderson tripled to right driving in the tying run. Gonzalez hit a two run single in the top of the ninth, bringing Seager home yet again and increasing their lead 4-2.

Clayton Kershaw recorded 10 strikeouts on the night. With only 5 walks on the season when he hit 100 K’s, he passed Cliff Lee’s previous ratio of 100-to-7. In the month of May, he has recorded 65 strikeouts and an ERA of 1.56. He is also the first Dodger to record seven or more innings in his first 11 starts of the season since Don Sutton in 1972.

Kenley Jansen closed out the game, recording his 15th save of the year. The Dodgers will fly to Chicago tomorrow for their four-game series against the Cubs.
