Clayton Kershaw started two of the four postseason games the Los Angeles Dodgers played. Under normal circumstances, one would expect the Dodgers to have split the left-hander’s two starts, if not won both.
However, that wasn’t the case as Kershaw was unable to solve the St. Louis Cardinals and for a second straight year, suffered a loss in the Dodgers’ elimination game. Despite Kershaw continuing to struggle in the postseason, Matt Kemp referred to the Dodgers’ ace as the best pitcher in baseball.
Kemp and other Dodger teammates voiced their support for Kershaw throughout the season and called him a viable NL MVP candidate. Kershaw will likely win his third Cy Young Award in four years, however the presentation may be more subdued than initially believed given the Dodgers’ brief playoff run.
