After pitching a pair of stellar games on short rest in the National League Division series, Highland Park alum Clayton Kershaw is slated to start Game 2 of the National League Championship Series.

The only question is: Will the opponent be Pittsburgh or St. Louis? Those two teams will decide that NLDS tonight in the Lou. Game 1 of the NLCS is Friday.

Kershaw, who went 16-9 this season with a 1.83 ERA and 232 strikeouts, is in line to win his second Cy Young Award. Now, he’s just hoping to get to his first World Series.

    What was Clayton’s overall record at HP and how far in the playoffs did the team go his senior year?

    Couldn’t find a final overall record info, but did find the following:

    Senior year he went 13-0 with a 0.77 ERA and 139 Strikeouts in 64 innings; including a perfect-game mercy-rule victory striking out all 15 batters faced.

    Also found an article from a couple days prior to the Regional Semifinals (dated May 23rd, 2006) that had his overall record at 37-8 in four years of varsity play.

    He went 38-8 at Highland Park. The Scots made it to the regional finals his senior year, but that was the deepest playoff run while he was there. Highland Park lost in the fourth round his freshman year, the first round his sophomore year, and the second round his junior year.
