Dodgers-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- There's little doubt Clayton Kershaw will win his second straight and third overall Cy Young Award when the votes are tallied, and his influence on the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers' successful season could lead to him becoming the first NL pitcher in 46 years to be named MVP.

He'll look to improve his already impressive credentials and win a sixth straight start when he takes the mound Friday against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Kershaw (19-3, 1.70 ERA) is tied for the major league lead in victories and tops the list alone in ERA after giving up two runs in eight innings of Sunday's 4-2 win over San Francisco, which trails the Dodgers (87-66) by 2 1/2 games in the NL West.
