Clayton Kershaw defeated the St. Louis Cardinals tonight and grabs his 16th victory.

Kershaw is now tied with Ian Kennedy of the Arizona Diamondbacks with the most wins in the National League. Kershaw's 8 strikeouts pushes him to 207 for the season. He lowers his ERA to 2.51.

By reaching the 200-strikeout plateau, it was the seventh-earliest date in Los Dodgers history:

Date                  Player          K's After Game
July 8, 1962         Sandy Koufax       202
July 16, 1965       Sandy Koufax       204
July 27, 1966       Sandy Koufax       201
August 7. 1963    Sandy Koufax       210
August 8, 1964    Sandy Joufax        200
August 10, 1963  Don Drysdale       201
August 23, 2011  Clayton Kershaw  207
Augut 25, 1961   Sandy Koufax       200

Can he win the National League Cy Young award?
