    Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Max Scherzer of the Detroit Tigers have won baseball's Cy Young Awards.

    Kershaw won the prize as the National League's best pitcher for the second time in three seasons after leading the majors with a 1.83 ERA.

    The 25-year-old lefty with a big-breaking curve drew 29 of 30 first-place votes from members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America in results released Wednesday. Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals was picked first on one ballot.
