The Dodgers do not need scares right now, not at this time of the season, but there it is: Clayton Kershaw has been scratched from Sunday's start and is headed to New York to be examined by a hip specialist. For Kershaw to be out now in the stretch drive, with only 17 games remaining, makes his injury look frighteningly serious. Kershaw, 24, had to miss a key start against Giants last Sunday with the sore right hip following a cortisone injection. He came back to pitch well Tuesday in Arizona, holding the Diamondbacks to one run and three hits in seven innings.
