The injury bug has hit Los Angeles' starting rotation hard, but Clayton Kershaw has been the one constant and he'll try for his 16th victory when the Dodgers visit the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday in the finale of a two-game series. With two starters (Josh Beckett, Hyun-Jin Ryu) on the disabled list and another (Zack Greinke) battling an elbow issue, Kershaw is making a case to become the first pitcher to win the National League MVP award since Bob Gibson in 1968. "Clayton's 15-3. That's significant production," former Dodger right-hander and 1956 NL MVP Don Newcombe told "You don't care what position he plays as long as he produces."Los Angeles prevailed 9-5 on Tuesday - its fifth win in seven games - to remain five games ahead of San Francisco in the National League West. The Dodgers improved their major league-best road record to 41-26 on the strength of a 14-hit attack - 13 singles and Matt Kemp's two-run homer - and a six-run fourth inning that included five straight singles.
