LOS ANGELES >> Clayton Kershaw is going to the All-Star Game in Cincinnati despite a .500 record in the first half for the Los Angeles Dodgers.The current National League MVP and Cy Young Award winner wasn’t elected by his peers and he finished third in the fan vote, but that doesn’t bother him.Kershaw says he has no pride in how he gets into the game and no one will remember that he made it only because Washington’s Max Scherzer started for the Nationals on Sunday and decided not to be active for Tuesday’s game.The left-hander is 6-6 but has a 2.85 ERA. He is an All-Star for the fifth straight year. Kershaw says his family is looking forward to the trip, with his wife Ellen already selecting outfits for 5-month-old daughter Cali.Kershaw joins teammates Zack Greinke, Adrian Gonzalez, Yasmani Grandal and rookie Joc Pederson on the NL All-Star roster.
