Kershaw to start 3rd straight opener for LA

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Clayton Kershaw has been selected as the Los Angeles Dodgers' opening day starter and will become the team's first pitcher to start three straight openers since Derek Lowe from 2005-07.

Kershaw will take the mound on April 1 against the World Series champion San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium.

In 2011, Mattingly announced Kershaw would start opening day on the first day of spring training. Kershaw, the 2011 NL Cy Young Award winner, pitched seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory over the Giants at Dodger Stadium.

In 2012, Kershaw threw three scoreless innings in a 5-3 victory at San Diego. The left-hander, 14-9 last year with a 2.53 ERA, left after the third inning because of flulike symptoms.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly made the announcement Saturday.
