Everything came together cleanly for the Dodgers in their 6-0 shutout of the Colorado Rockies.

“It was a clean game,” Torre said. “Kershaw is showing you more and more why he’s going to be someone special.”

Clayton Kershaw (W, 11-7) did just that continuing the string of excellent outings by Dodger starters going seven innings allowing only five hits and three walks while striking out six. And in a rare showing as of late, the offense decided to back Kershaw up with a five-run fifth inning.

“I don’t pitch any differently when I get runs as opposed to when I do - I still try to put zeroes up,” Kershaw said. “It’s definitely nice to have that breakout inning, get five runs and shut them down the next inning.”
