LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was scratched from his scheduled start against the A's on Wednesday night because of a sore hip muscle, and the team said he will instead start against the Angels on Friday.
Kershaw, in the midst of a 29-inning scoreless streak, was replaced Wednesday by right-hander Mike Bolsinger, who had previously pitched a week ago because of the shuffling necessitated by Zack Greinke's placement on the paternity list.
