Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw on cusp of strikeout milestone

What is even more remarkable is that game lasted six innings longer (18) than Friday night's game (12). LA tied the game on a homer by Yasmani Grandal off Brewers' closer Corey Knebel in the top of the 9th to send it to the extra frames.

Nolan Ryan holds the major league record for strikeouts with 5,714.

That'll happen when you put a team with high strikeout tendencies against Clayton Kershaw and the punchout-iest bullpen in the league.

The teams will play a 3:10 game Saturday at Miller Park.

The Dodgers will start Rich Hill and the Brewers will counter with right-hander Matt Garza. Kershaw gave up just two hits in all and the only damage was a solo homer off the bat of Domingo Santana in his final inning of work.

Irving's 42 carry Cavs to win, 3-1 lead over Celtics
Irving also rolled an ankle on a drive and bucket with 1:47 left in the third but was able to stay in the game. They all know not to expect the same, unusually tame James in Game 4. "Defensively, we've got to be better".

Nelson also became the first pitcher in Brewers history with back-to-back games with at least 10 strikeouts and no walks.?The Brewers' pitchers finished with 16 K's.

It's a significant achievement for Kershaw, who is just 29 and has a chance to end up one of the all-time greats in the strikeout department.

By another measure, Kershaw will reach 2,000 career strikeouts faster than all but one pitcher.

Kershaw recorded his 2,000th strikeout in 1,837 2/3 career innings. Pedro Martinez reached the milestone in 1,715 1/3 innings, and Randy Johnson was next at 1,734 innings. The 26-year-old left-hander reached the majors for the first time this season, making two relief appearances for the Twins. To make room for him on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers moved utility man Rob Segedin to the 60-day disabled list. Manager Dave Roberts had Chris Taylor pinch-hit for Kershaw.
