SAN DIEGO (CBS/AP) – Clayton Kershaw got his 21st win, taking a two-hitter into the eighth inning to make his final case for the NL Cy Young award and leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Kershaw (21-5) moved into a tie with Arizona’s Ian Kennedy for NL lead for wins and increased his league leading strikeout total to 248.

Phillies Cliff Lee will need to pitch 10 2/3 scoreless innings and/or strikeout 17 batters to unseat Kersahw according to Joe Block off KABC 790.

Teammate Matt Kemp’s pursuit of the NL Triple Crown suffered a major setback as he fell eight points behind Ryan Braun of Milwaukee in the batting race. Kemp, who started the day six points back, went 1 for 5 as his average stayed at .325. Braun went 2 for 3 and raised his average to .333.

Corey Luebke (6-10) allowed four runs — three earned — on five hits over six innings.
