On September 19, 2014 — Los Angles Dodgers Clayton Kershaw becomes the first 20-game winner of the season when the team routs Chicago at a windy Wrigley Field, 14-5. The 26 year-old southpaw, who has compiled a 20-3 (.870) record along with an ERA of 1.80 is the first Dodger hurler to reach the 20-win plateau twice since Claude Osteen accomplished the feat in 1969 and 1972.
A.J. Ellis hits a pair of two-run homers and Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig add three-run shots each helping Los Angeles clinch a postseason slot with the win.
