It was one of many strikeouts in what ended up being a stellar start for Kershaw.
He retired 20 consecutive batters before surrendering a home run to Domingo Santana at Miller Park stadium in Milwaukee. Hall of Famer Randy Johnson reached the mark in his 262nd career game, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

His flying bicycle kick was only cleared off the line by Frankfurt's Mexico global Marco Fabian on 64 minutes. Dortmund in the 2017 DFB Pokal Final is on May 27, Saturday at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, Germany.
Nelson also became the first pitcher in Brewers history with back-to-back games with at least 10 strikeouts and no walks.?The Brewers' pitchers finished with 16 K's.
By another measure, Kershaw will reach 2,000 career strikeouts faster than all but one pitcher.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said LHP Alex Wood (shoulder) could start throwing by the end of the weekend, and that tests on Wood's AC joint came back negative.
Nelson hasn't allowed a walk in his last 18 innings. Hill is 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA in six career appearances (five starts) against the Brewers but hasn't faced them since posting a win on August 28, 2007 as a member of the Cubs.
The Dodgers picked up left-handed pitcher Jason Wheeler from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for cash considerations. His 2.37 ERA entering play on Friday would represent his worst mark in a season since 2012.
