Dodgers 4, Padres 0: Kershaw Finally Figures Out Friars

Tonight's game in a nutshell. - Denis Poroy

With tonight's loss, the Padres are now guaranteed to finish the season with a losing record.

The Padres have had the number of 2011 SBNation Cy Young Award Co-Winner Clayton Kershaw all season, but he finally figured them out tonight.  The Dodger ace threw 7 shutout innings, giving up just 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 10. While Burch Smith threw a quality start, A.J. Ellis made him pay for a mistake, taking an 0-1 change up deep to left field. Tim Stauffer was also burned by the long ball, giving up a 457-foot bomb to Yasiel Puig. It was the second longest home run in Petco Park. If you're wondering who hit the longest, it's some other Dodger that played here for a while.

Your last chance to boo the Dodgers this season is at 1:10 PM tomorrow when Andrew Cashner takes on Zack Greinke.
