Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw Reaches Another Major Career Milestone



Another day, another major career milestone for the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw. The legendary southpaw added a couple of more strikeouts on Thursday night to reach 2500 through his illustrious career. Through three innings, Kershaw was up to six strikeouts in the game.

Dodgers fans have gotten used to Kershaw racking up the strikeouts over the years, so it really comes as no surprise. But he did reach that mark in the fourth-fewest games in big-league history, with a pair of Hall of Famers ahead of him. Max Scherzer is also on that list, doing it in nine fewer games. 

With his sixth strikeout during the third inning, Kershaw also moved up on the all-time strikeout list. He passed hall of fame pitcher Christy Matthewson for 38th all-time on the list of big leaguers. Mathewson played in the big leagues for 17 years in the early 1900s.

  1. Closed as though he might get in another inning. was pitching well enough but that pitch count a bit high. Interesting to note that Wiil Smith had a good game yesterday with a hit, 3 walks. and he he had the walk off hit but Roberts sits him tonight–unbelievable.
