The Braves got on the board against Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw in the fourth inning, but they were unable to make it a big inning.

Freddie Freeman reached on a one-out single to right field before Evan Gattis worked out a walk. The next batter Brian McCann came very close to a three-run homer, but Carl Crawford was able to catch up to it at the warning track in left field. Chris Johnson then singled to center field to drive in the first run of the game for the Braves, but Kershaw was able to strike out Andrelton Simmons swinging to end the threat and stand runners at first and third. Wasting opportunities against Kershaw is not a recipe for success.

Kershaw hasn’t been on his A-game so far, as he has already thrown 77 pitches over four innings, but the Dodgers still have themselves a comfortable 5-1 lead as we head to the fifth.

    I was about to say that Kershaw doesn’t really have his curve ball going tonight, but he just struck out BJ Upton looking with that pitch. It’s crazy how good Kershaw is.

    That’s it. Cy Young Jr.
