(TSX / STATS) -- LOS ANGELES -- The Colorado Rockies had one shot at the Los Angeles Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw on Saturday night and missed. The left-handed ace didn't give them another.
After toughing out a 33-pitch first inning that included a bases-loaded, one out situation, Kershaw settled into his dominating form and throttled the Rockies for his 11th victory of the season. He allowed four hits and a walk in six shutout innings as the Dodgers won their ninth straight 4-0.
Joc Pederson extended the club's streak of games with a home run to 16 with a first-pitch shot to center in the third inning, the longest streak since the 1960 team hit one in 17 straight. They're 15-1 in those games.
