Kershaw, the National League Cy Young winner, led the NL with a 21-5 record, 248 strikeouts and a 2.28 ERA. He also was selected to his first All-Star game and won his first Gold Glove.
The Spahn award is based on a pitcher’s wins, strikeouts and ERA. Spahn won 363 career games in his Hall of Fame career. He died in 2003.
