Kershaw's dominance in perspective

Clayton Kershaw takes the mound against the Mets on Sunday with 95 strikeouts compared to five walks this season. No pitcher in the modern era (since 1900) has had fewer than seven walks at the time of his 100th strikeout of a season (Cliff Lee in 2010), per Elias Sports Bureau.

The Dodgers' Chase Utley wasn't surprised the Mets sought retribution this far into the season series, and he's not ruling out the same thing in the series finale Sunday.

The Dodgers' Chase Utley said he understood if the Mets were throwing at him Saturday. He was more interested in talking about a 9-1 victory and how Kenta Maeda threw five scoreless innings after getting hit in the hand with a line drive.

How do you respond when a team throws a pitch behind your back? For Chase Utley it would be to hit two home runs, including a grand slam against the Mets. The Dodgers' infielder has five RBIs in seven innings to help his team to a 6-0 lead.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

Dodgers pitcher Kenta Maeda recovered impressively after taking a line drive off his right hand in the first inning. He gave up no runs on two hits to the Mets and was removed after five innings, having thrown 75 pitches.

Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda has been in complete control since getting hit on the right hand/wrist by a line drive in the first inning. The Mets are 0-for-10 since as Maeda has pitched four shutout innings.
