Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw collected the 2,500th strikeout of his career during Thursday night’s game against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks.

Kershaw, 32, reached the milestone with his third strikeout of the night, throwing a looping curve that got Nick Ahmed swinging in the second inning.

He is the second pitcher in Dodgers history to reach that mark, joining Don Sutton, and the 11th southpaw all time to get there.

Kershaw joins Justin Verlander (3,013), Max Scherzer (2,753), Zack Greinke (2,657) and Cole Hamels (2,558) as the only active pitchers with 2,500 strikeouts.
