Angels at Dodgers, 7:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FSW
Repeat Pitcher-of-the-Month winner Clayton Kershaw goes after his 14th win tonight against Hector Santiago, who’s 3-7 with a 3.76 ERA. Santiago’s last outing was a scoreless two innings in relief in the Angels’ 1-0 13-inning win over the Orioles last Thursday night. His last start was July 27, when he gave up one run and three hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Tigers.
Kershaw, meanwhile, has won 10 straight and is 13-2 on the season with a best in-the-majors 1.71 ERA and 150 strikeouts in 121 1/3 innings.
