Ks rule in Dodgers 2-1 win over Brewers

Isaac Mcdaniel | 04 June, 2017, 06:58

Kershaw and the Dodgers' bullpen put on a pitching clinic, setting a franchise record for strikeouts in a game with 26, which tied the Major League Baseball record.

Kershaw set the tone with a season-high 14 strikeouts to reach 2,000 for his career. The Dodgers are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Milwaukee, 6-1 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings in Milwaukee.

Both teams combined for 42 strikeouts. Clayton Kershaw got the spotlight for recording his 2,000th strikeout, but Kenley Jansen also hit a milestone here with four Ks of his own: he set the record for most strikeouts to begin a season without recording a walk.

The only jam Nelson found himself in was in the 8th inning when second basemen Jonathan Villar botched a ground ball of a would-be inning-ending double play. The 37-year-old has worked five frames or fewer in each of his three starts since being sidelined one month due to a recurrence of blister issues. Yasmani Grandal had tied the game with one out in the ninth by lining a 3-1 fastball from closer Corey Knebel over the wall in right-center.

"His stuff is electric", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. He recorded a no-decision in a game that lasted 12 innings. Pedro Martinez reached the milestone in 1,715 1/3 innings, and Randy Johnson was next at 1,734 innings.
