Each of Kershaw’s Game Line’s Against the Giants (2008-2015)

Clayton Kershaw is good. Studies have been done, scouts have been asked, fantasy players have benefitted from his performances, this is pretty much confirmed by now. Since you’re curious about how the possibly compromised Madison Bumgarner will do against the ace of the Dodgers. The embedding is admittedly a little messy since I haven’t been doing this for a while and I’m lucky I’m able to do this post while my kid is awake. Here are the lines from Kershaw’s appearances (2008 was a relief appearance) against the Giants. Not a lot to look forward to if you’re a fan of the Giants offense.

2009 — I’m pretty sure I was at this game. It was not a fun game for the Giants offense.

2014 — Kershaw allows three earned runs in May, gets beat. Otherwise, classic Kershaw.

2016 — clearly the pattern is the Giants will go undefeated against Kershaw, scoring 1 or 2 runs in every other start except for May, where he will allow 4 runs.

Can’t wait.
