Clayton Kershaw nearly makes history as Dodgers deal Marlins another blowout loss

Clayton Kershaw nearly makes history as Dodgers deal Marlins another blowout loss The most consecutive strikeouts ever by a pitcher to start a game is eight - a number hit twice and most recently by Jacob deGrom against the Miami Marlins in 2014. Clayton Kershaw was one pitch away Wednesday from putting the Marlins on the list again. The starting pitcher struck out the side in the first, then did the same in the second. He started the third inning with a strikeout, too, and got to a two-strike count against Lewis Brinson before the outfielder staved off history by hitting an easy ground ball to the shortstop. By then, Miami was already well on its way to a second straight blowout loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
