Cardinals Vs. Dodgers Final Score: Kershaw Pitches CG SO As Los Angeles Wins 6-0

The St. Louis Cardinals (22-18) could not find their rhythm against one of the league's top lefties as the Los Angeles Dodgers (27-13) powered their way to a 6-0 win. SP Clayton Kershaw (W, 4-1) hurled a complete game shut out against the league's top offense, allowing only 6 hits -- 5 of which were singles -- while striking out 4 batters in the 117-pitch effort.

SP Jake Westbrook (L, 4-3) did not fare as well in his offering. He managed to strike out 5 while walking only 1 batter through 6 and 1/3 innings, but he allowed a long-ball to SS Justin Sellers in the bottom of the seventh inning and got tabbed for another run when the bullpen allowed an inherited runner to score on a single, finishing Westbrook's line with 3 ER and 4 R charged against him.

The Cardinals have now lost three straight games and have only two wins in their last week of play. They still hold a 1.5 game lead in the NL Central, but will look to add to their lead -- and snap out of their funk -- Sunday at 7:00 p.m. CDT as they wrap up their series against the Dodgers.
