Fernandez spoils Kershaw's return, Marlins top Dodgers 4-1

Ordinarily, Jose Fernandez against Clayton Kershaw would figure to be quite a pitchers' duel.

Fernandez lived up to his end of the bargain.

The Miami ace tied a career high with 14 strikeouts, overshadowing Kershaw's return from injury and leading the Marlins to a 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.

Fernandez (14-8) gave up three hits and three walks in seven shutout innings. It was the fifth time he's struck out 14 in a game, and third this season.

"It seems like that's all I do lately. I can't pass 14," Fernandez said.

That's more than enough for the Marlins.

Fernandez was simply dominant, improving to 4-0 all-time...
