Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) -
Clayton Kershaw's 20th win was his easiest of the season, but he was far away from having his best stuff.
Good thing the Los Angeles Dodgers' bats came out smoking hot.
Matt Kemp smacked a three-run homer in a six-run Los Angeles first inning, Kershaw labored through five frames and the Dodgers routed the Chicago Cubs, 14-5, in the second test of a four-game set.

Three teams in, seven more to go.
The Los Angeles Angels were the first to join the postseason party on Monday and were joined by the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals on Tuesday, as both of whom clinched their respective divisions.
It was the first American League East title in 17 years for the O's, while the Nats secured their second National League West crown in three years. Los Angeles, meanwhile, could clinch the AL West as early as Wednesday.
