Taylor's 9th-inning slam leads Dodgers over Brewers 10-8

The Brewers fell 2-1 in Friday's 12-inning contest, matching the record shared by their 2004 team, the 1971 California Angels and this season's Chicago Cubs.

The 29-year-old Kershaw is behind only Johnson and Pedro Martinez in innings pitched before recording 2,000 strikeouts.

Following Friday's 14 strikeouts over seven innings, Kershaw will need just three Ks in his next outing to pass Hunter. Brewers manager Craig Counsell inexplicably pulled Nelson after eight shut out innings despite 11 strikeouts without a walk on 101 pitches. At one point he retired 20 straight batters before giving up a solo shot to Domingo Santana.

Los Angeles went on to win 2-1 in Milwaukee.

Highlighted by a 301-strikeout season in 2015, Kershaw has been one of the most dominant pitchers in Major League Baseball since his arrival in 2008. LA tied the game on a homer by Yasmani Grandal off Brewers' closer Corey Knebel in the top of the 9th to send it to the extra frames.

The Justice Department on Friday distributed prepared remarks that Rosenstein delivered to Congress in separate briefings. Trump reportedly added, "I'm not under investigation".

The combined 42 strikeouts set a National League record.

"It will be cool someday, I guess when you retire you look back at that stuff", Kershaw said about the milestone.

The Dodgers picked up left-handed pitcher Jason Wheeler from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for cash considerations. On a 1-2 count in the bottom of the fourth inning, Kershaw unloaded the vaunted curveball that Vin Scully once called "Public Enemy No. 1".

Wheeler, 26, saw his first major league action this year with Minnesota, allowing five runs - three earned - in three innings in two relief appearances. Matt Garza will start game two for Milwaukee and is 2-2 with a 3.98 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season.
