Clayton Kershaw gives the Dodgers winning edge

first_imgDodgers manager Dave Roberts sees first baseman Adrian Gonzalez (right elbow soreness) going on a rehab assignment next week to play two or three games. … The last time Roberts heard from outfielder Andre Ethier, his back was giving him some problems when he runs or bends over. “Physically, he’s just limited,” Roberts said. “If someone told me late June (for a return), I’d be very excited.” … Spectrum SportsNet LA and KTLA/5 will simulcast the Dodgers’ game vs. the Miami Marlins on Sunday, May 21 at 12:30 p.m. The game was added to the simulcast schedule after last Sunday’s game vs. the Padres in San Diego was rained out. That game was originally scheduled as the 10th and final SportsNet LA broadcast to simulcast on KTLA5 this season.Facing KershawThe prospect of facing Kershaw had the Rockies a little more amped than usual.“It’s just human nature when you face a superstar,” Manager Bud Black explained. “Whether it’s a team playing against Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, or the Warriors, or teams playing against the Patriots, you get up for it. With the big boys like Kershaw … teams get up for those guys.” The Dodgers took advantage of an erratic Tyler Chatwood (3-5), who walked four and allowed five runs over 4-1/3 innings.In the pivotal second, the Dodgers sent nine batters to the plate and drew three walks, all of which scored.
