This is Clayton Kershaw's sixth NLCS start since 2013. In three of those, the Dodgers were shut out. Last year, he beat the Cubs 1-0. The Dodgers won his first start 5-2, but scored three of those runs after he left the game. In other words, this 2-0 lead is the biggest Kershaw has had in an NLCS game in recent years.
