Clayton Kershaw hurled a two-hit complete game shutout over the Giants Saturday.
Kershaw rebounded nicely after getting "knocked" around for three runs over seven innings against the Cardinals in his last start. This was Kershaw's fourth complete game of the season and second shutout. He will face the Braves in his next start and its hard not to imagine he won't dominate. ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
