Kershaw makes All-Star; gives up 7runs on 10Ks

by @ 12:55 pm. Filed under 2011 Dodgers

ANAHEIM — The Los Angeles Dodgers and Anaheim Angels met again, this time in Anaheim to close out their season series, and again, both clubs sent out their aces to battle one another.

Angels starter, Jared Weaver, improved to 10-4 on the season with a one-run, four-hit effort, as he struck out eight to lower his ERA to 1.92 over eight innings.

Clayton Kershaw, along with teammate Matt Kemp will both play in their first All-Star game as they are the Dodgers representatives, lasted just six-innings surrendering all seven-runs to the Angels despite striking out ten or more for his third straight start.

The Dodgers offense gave Kershaw nothing, going 5-for-29 on the night.  James Loney doubled in the fifth and advanced to third on Aaron Miles groundout.  Trent Oeltjen’s sacrifice fly scored Loney and Dodgers only run on the day.

Anaheim though, gave Weaver plenty to work with as they scored back-to-back three-run innings en-route to a 7-1 victory.

Jeff Mathis doubled to start the third and ended up at third after a soft groundout from Maicer Izturis.  Erick Aybar scored Mathis on fielder’s choice for the Angels first run, and advanced to second on a throwing error.  Vernon Wells went deep as Anaheim quickly jumped out to a 3-0 lead.

The very next inning, Alberto Callaspo walked and Peter Bourjos singled to begin the inning.  But the next two Angels batters went down, now leaving it up Aybar with two-outs and runners aboard.

Aybar sent a fly ball to left that dropped in front of outfielder Tony Gwynn, allowing Callaspo to score and advance Bourjos to third.  Aybar then stole second, moving into scoring position, and the deed was honored by Bobby Abreu’s 2-RBI single.

The Angels would tack on another run in the sixth to take a 7-1 lead.

The Angels and Dodgers will close out their season rivalry tonight as the Dodgers seek a victory to split the season series with the Angels.  The Angels on the other hand are hoping for a win themselves and a Texas Rangers loss to share first with Texas.
