After Ryu's less-than-stellar outing vs the Giants last week, I really wanted him to go out there and dominate tonight (last night?).  Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed.

Beckett's SIERA last night was 3.17.  His ERA was 9.00.  Just saying.

There's only been one (other) game in the last century of Dodgers' history in which the pitching staff has struck out at least 16 and walked 0.  That was August 31, 2004 against the DBacks, in which Jeff Weaver had the start (and which went to 13 innings).

Biggest upside of Kershaw being broken is that the media are temporarily distracted from commenting on the Notorious Pu.I.G.

Only 3 pitchers have a SIERA < 2 over the last 3 seasons (min 20 IP): Craig Kimbrel, Koji Uehara, and Kenley Jansen.

I'll say it again: K/BB is far more informative than ERA in small sample sizes (SIERA and other sabermetrics aren't available during ST, so K/BB is the best one can do).  And Kershaw's K/BB tonight was 5/1, which is an excellent mark, and a welcome improvement from his recent outings.  Jet lag aside, I'm not worried about his performance in Sydney.
