Clayton Kershaw’s scoreless streaks end
- Updated: July 10, 2014
Since June 13, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw has not allowed a run, until Thursday night. Kershaw went 41 2/3 innings without allowing a run until he gave up a solo home run to Padres third baseman, Chase Headley. Kershaw was able to battle out of the game with only the one run given up, in 9 innings, adding 11 strikeouts.
Kershaw extended his winning streak to 8 straight starts, while the MLB and Elias Sports both recorded Kershaw’s streak at 41 innings. It is the longest such streak since R.A. Dickey went 44 2/3 in 2012, and Brandon Webb went 42 innings in 2007. The Dodgers franchise owns two of the longest streaks with Orel Hershiser’s 59-inning streak in 1988 and Don Drysdale’s 58-inning streak in 1968.

This was also the first time in over a month that Kershaw had given up a home run, the last time being June 8 at Coors Field against the Rockies. Headley’s home run was only the fifth homer given up by Kershaw this season.
One of the MLB’s elite pitcher is just that, and Kershaw’s body of work is certainly exciting to watch every single time he pitches.
