Kershaw Has Never Lost To The Mets

Clayton Kershaw is having one of the best pitching months in recent memory – 5-0 with a 0.64 ERA in five starts during May – and he aims to close out his perfect month when he takes on the New York Mets Sunday. Kershaw has absolutely dominated the Mets in his career with a 7-0 record and a 1.17 ERA while averaging nearly 10 strikeouts per nine innings.

Shark Bites
  • The Dodgers are 12-6 in their past 18 games at Citi Field.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the Mets’ past five games.
  • Adrian Gonzalez is a career .444 hitter against Bartolo Colon.

The Mets will counter Kershaw with the one and only Bartolo Colon. The 18-year veteran has been especially solid at Citi Field this season with a 2.66 ERA, but the Mets have supplied him with just 2.75 runs of support in those outings.

The Dodgers enter the deciding game of the series with wins in five of their past six outings while limiting opponents to two runs or less on four occasions. Chase Utley has been one of the best batters in the Dodgers’ lineup during that span, as he has gone 9-for-23 with five RBIs.
