The Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw has given up 24 earned runs this season. Five came in one inning against the Marlins, and four came in the second inning against the Pirates.

Baseball Tonight @BBTN

Clayton Kershaw hadn't allowed more than 1 run in the first 2 innings this season. He has allowed 4 so far.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

Clayton Kershaw is having a devil of a time against the Pirates. First pitcher Chad Kuhl goes eight pitches before striking out. Then it's an RBI single for Adam Frazier and a three-run double for David Freese. Pirates 4-0, end of 2.

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

Kershaw issues his eighth walk of the season. Pirates have the bases loaded, and Chad Kuhl at the plate for first MLB at-bat.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

Make that 8-for-15 for Chris Stewart against Clayton Kershaw. Single to left field.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

Chris Stewart up for the Pirates. He's 7-for-14 career against Clayton Kershaw.

Pirates SS Jordy Mercer out of the game after the knee to the helmet. Adam Frazier goes to right field, Sean Rodriguez goes from right to short.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

Jordy Mercer slow to get back to the Pirates' dugout after taking a knee to the side of the helmet from Chase Utley at 2B. The two got tangled on a double-play attempt.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

The Pirates' Jordy Mercer took his hitting streak to 11 games with a leadoff single against Clayton Kershaw.

Is it smart to annoy Clayton Kershaw?

The Pirate Parrot drove an RC car by the Dodgers ace, who appeared visibly annoyed.

Here's an interesting wrinkle in Jose Reyes' contract: The Mets have an option for 2017. Reyes would again only cost the MLB minimum.

Still wish the Pirates' players had been given the OK to issue Stargell Stars for these Sunday uniforms and hats.

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

Francisco Cervelli is working aggressively to come back from his broken hamate bone. Figures to be back in a couple of weeks.

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

Some notes: Dave Roberts intended to speak with Kenley Jansen about being available for a 4- or 5-out save tonight, if needed.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

On May 30, the Pirates and Mets were tied in the wild-card race and the Dodgers were three games back. Entering today, the Dodgers held the second wild-card spot and the Pirates were 4½ games back.

The Pirates' Chad Kuhl throws the first pitch of his career -- on Sunday NIght Baseball, against Clayton Kershaw. ESPN.
