Clayton Kershaw allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings on Sunday to help the Dodgers to a 4-2 win in Game 5 of the World Series against the Rays.
He allowed five hits, and he walked two with six strikeouts. Kershaw had to battle to get his 17 outs, but ultimately, it was a successful start. He gave up both of his runs in the third, and things appeared to be coming off the rails in the fourth with runners on first and third with no outs. He was able to retire the next two hitters, however, and Kershaw showed off his savvy by coming off the mound and firing a strike home after stepping off when Manuel Margot attempted a straight steal of the plate. It wasn’t a dominant performance, but it wasn’t one of the future Hall of Famer's postseason klunkers, either. Kershaw will likely be available on a couple of days of rest in Game 7 -- if necessary -- on Wednesday. Tuesday will see Tony Gonsolin start against Blake Snell in Game 6. Oct 25 11:38 pm (EST)
