Dodgers News: Clayton Kershaw Named July Pitcher Of The Month

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is having another Cy Young caliber season and had an incredible July that resulted in him winning the NL Pitcher of the Month.

On the season, Kershaw is 10-6 with an major league leading 1.87 ERA, but his overall record isn’t indicative to how well he’s been pitching. Kershaw has given up four runs only once this season and he’s struck out 161 batters in 168.1 innings pitched. The Dodgers official Twitter account announced he won the award:

In July, Kershaw was 4-1 with a microscopic ERA of 1.34 as he gained victories over the Rockies, Giants, Nationals and Reds. He got a no-decision against the Yankees, but he threw eight shutout innings.

To put into perspective how good Kershaw was, he gave up only seven runs in 47 innings and struck out 43 batters while walking just two batters.

While the Dodgers offense has performed better overall, Kershaw definitely gets the least amount of run support, which makes his performances that much more impressive.
