Dodgers 3, Brewers 1: Stars Perform, Team Wins

kershaw_newyork_2013-04-23…funny how that works, isn’t it? All along we’ve said that no matter whether it’s Don Mattingly or someone else running this club, the Dodgers were only going to succeed if their big stars actually started contributing.

So tonight there was the much-maligned Matt Kemp, hitting just his second homer of the year.

There was the struggling Andre Ethier, tripling in the first run and homering in the second. (Before getting ejected.)

And of course there was Clayton Kershaw, one of the few who had been showing up big all season long, refusing to let the bullpen squander another lead by simply refusing to let the bullpen get an opportunity to.

Over a long season, you need 25 men — more, really — to come together to make for success. But sometimes, all you need is the guys who you expect to carry the load to… well, carry the load.
