Clayton Kershaw tosses six shutout in final start of regular season

Clayton Kershaw picked up the win in his final start of the regular season on Thursday versus San Diego, tossing six scoreless innings while striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact

Kershaw was sensational, as he has been all year, allowing just two hits and a walk. He finishes the regular season with a 16-5 record, a 3.05 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP, and 188 strikeouts in 177 1/3 innings pitched. The lefty came into the year as a legitimate health concern but wound up making 28 starts. He wound up being a major draft-day value.
