The Dodgers' ace yielded just five hits and one walk.
Analysis: The three-time Cy Young winner served up three homers in six innings in a loss at Coors Field on April 8. In his three other starts this season, Kershaw has registered a 1.64 ERA and fanned 26 in 22 1/3 innings while winning each. Next up for the star left-hander is another duel with Madison Bumgarner on Tuesday in San Francisco.

Analysis: Twenty-two strikeouts, 14 hits and just one walk in 21 1/3 innings. It's safe to say Kershaw is in midseason form.

Analysis: A two-homer sixth inning came back to bite him. It was only the third time Kershaw has allowed multi-homers in an inning over his career. Nolan Arenado also hit a homer off Kershaw in the first.

Analysis: He struck out eight and walked none in his seventh consecutive opening day start. He tied the team mark for most opening day starts in matching Don Sutton, who started seven straight openers from 1972-78, and Don Drysdale, whose seven weren't consecutive. Kershaw is 5-0 in seven opening-day starts with a 0.99 ERA, the second-lowest behind Rick Mahler's 0.92 mark.

Analysis: Kershaw, who is healthy after missing 2 1/2 months last season with a back injury, was officially named the starter by manager Dave Roberts on Saturday, tying him with Don Drysdale and Don Sutton with seven.
