Kershaw vs Wainwright in stellar matchup

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) The last time the Los Angeles Dodgers met the St. Louis Cardinals in the playoffs, Clayton Kershaw had a terrible outing and the Dodgers were bounced out of the postseason.

A year later and a round earlier, Kershaw has a chance to erase those memories in Friday's NL Division Series opener against Adam Wainwright.

Kershaw was 10-2 with a 1.70 ERA at Dodger Stadium during the regular season. Wainwright hasn't been nearly as successful at Chavez Ravine. The right-hander is 1-3 with a 4.30 ERA in seven games, including six starts.

Kershaw says losing 9-0 to the Cardinals in Game 6 of last year's NLCS stuck with him for much of the winter.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly says Kershaw uses every setback as extra incentive to fuel him.
