Los Angeles’ Clayton Kershaw has accomplished something that the hurler he is compared to (Sandy Koufax) probably seldom if ever  did....lose three games in a row. When a team doesn’t hit the ball and the defense plays “dodge ball” wins are hard to come by regardless of  how well you are pitching. The best thing in Kershaw’s favor today is the Dodgers are hosting the New York Mets who like to score runs in  bunches; two an inning in two weeks.  The question is “Not if the Mets will lose but will they score?”  Max Scherzer lost yesterday to Atlanta 2-1, another case of “no score, no wins, dude.”  Matt Boyd got a chance to start for Toronto at home against Boston and did not retire a single batter as he was blasted for six hits (two homers) and seven runs in an 8-run first inning that paved  the way for the Red Sox to win 12-6.  Want to say something to me, send it to address:  jab34@mchsi.com
