Dodgers’ Kershaw throttles the Pirates

LOS ANGELES - Clayton Kershaw is off to an amazing start - even by his standards.

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ ace followed up his sensational one-man show on opening day with seven innings of two-hit ball and nine strikeouts in a spirited duel with A.J. Burnett, beating Pittsburgh 1-0 Saturday night and handing the Pirates their second straight shutout loss.

Kershaw (2-0) walked one and retired 17 consecutive batters after giving up a leadoff single in the first inning.

Last Monday, the 2011 Cy Young Award winner threw a four-hitter against the World Series champion Giants and broke a scoreless tie with his first major league home run.
