Kershaw re-writes the leaderboards

Part of the fun for me in posting the leaderboards before each series is to see if someone can crack them. Several weeks ago Alex Wood did just that, and last night Clayton Kershaw decided he would be mocked no more for not having a double-digit strikeout game against the Brewers on the road.

Here are the new leaderboards, and we will throw in the new LAD all-time strikeout leaderboard now that Kershaw has cracked 2,000.

First up will be game score, Clayton couldn’t knock off Hideo Nomo when Dave Roberts decided to use Chris Taylor to attempt to bunt in the top of the 8th but he did crack the 80 game score club for the 2nd time.
