Behind eight dominant innings from starter Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers easily defeated the downtrodden Phillies 5-0 to win their tenth consecutive game. It is also their 42nd win in their last 50 games, an absurd .840 winning percentage. Kershaw held the Phillies scoreless on three hits and a walk while striking out eight. Kershaw even provided some offense, lacing an RBI double down the left field line in the fourth inning to put his team up 2-0. Juan Uribe stuck the dagger in the Phillies with a three-run home run in the top of the ninth.

It’s the second game in a row in which the Dodgers have shut out the Phillies. Zack Greinke and the bullpen did the deed last night in a 4-0 victory. The Phillies last scored in the ninth inning on Wednesday against the Braves, and have yet to score in the Ryne Sandberg era.

Kershaw lowered his ERA to 1.80, nearly a half-run better than the next-best ERA in baseball owned by Matt Harvey at 2.23.

Ricky Nolasco will attempt to keep the shutout trend going as he opposes Cole Hamels tomorrow.

    Chester, does frailest mean trashiest or least trashiest?
