Clayton Kershaw picked up the win on Sunday when he allowed two runs on five hits with six strikeouts and two walks over 5 2/3 innings in the Dodgers 4-2 win over the Rays in Game 5 of the World Series.
Kershaw did his job, once again, holding the Rays to a pair of runs over his five plus innings of work. He was tagged for an RBI triple by Yandy Diaz and subsequently gave up an RBI single to Randy Arozarena in the third inning but that was that was the only real damage he sustained. The Dodgers pen was able to continue the job and earn Kershaw his second win of the World Series. The veteran southpaw is having the best playoff run of his career up to this point with a 4-1 record, 2.93 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, and a 37:5 K/BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings. The Dodgers are now one win away from locking up their first World Championship since 1988.
