With Ian Kennedy winning his 21st game last night, Clayton Kershaw needs a good outing today to match him in wins. If he can manage another great start, it will be hard for the voters for the Cy Young award to pick anybody else.
Let’s hope that the Dodgers play the “A” team today and do everything they can to help Kershaw win.
The game today starts at 1 PM which should help Matt Kemp a bit in his quest for 40 home runs.
This Day in Dodgers History
September 25, 1974 – In the first-of-its-kind operation, Dr. Frank Jobe transplants a tendon from Tommy John’s right wrist to the Dodger pitcher’s left elbow. The ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction, which will become commonplace surgical procedure better known as Tommy John surgery, enables the right-hander to win an additional 164 games games, more than half of his career total of 288 victories.
