Clayton Kershaw gets the win in six-inning gem in Game 1

Clayton Kershaw picked up the win on Tuesday when he allowed just one run on two hits with eight strikeouts and one walk across six innings in the Dodgers 8-3 win over the Rays in Game 1 of the World Series.

Fantasy Impact:

Kershaw was locked in from the get go in Game 1, only firing 78 pitches--53 strikes--in the highly efficient outing. Kevin Kiermaier clocked a solo homer off of him in the top of the fifth inning but that was the only real mistake the left-hander allowed. He was also given plenty of run support with the Dodgers holding an 8-1 lead when he exited the ball game. Kershaw is having the best postseason stretch of his illustrious career with a 3-1 record, 2.88 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, and a 31:3 K/BB ratio across 25 innings. Los Angeles will look to take a commanding 2-0 series lead on Wednesday.
