(ESPN) – Chicago Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks may be a Cy Young candidate and he may have won the ERA title, but Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw showed why he’s still the king.

Kershaw proved that any concerns about his workload were unfounded as he shut down the Cubs for seven innings and the Dodgers edged Chicago 1-0 to even the National League Championship Series at a game apiece.

The Cubs managed just a pair of fifth-inning singles against Kershaw, the only real threat they mounted against the three-time Cy Young winner and 2014 MVP. Kershaw snuffed that rally by getting Jason Heyward on a weak foul out to third. Heyward is 0-for-12 in his career against Kershaw.

Kershaw outdueled Hendricks, who allowed a second-inning solo homer to Adrian Gonzalez for the game’s only run. Hendricks pitched into the sixth inning and walked four batters, his most since June 24.
