LOS ANGELES – Clayton Kershaw made an emphatic statement on Wednesday for fans to select him for the MLB All-Star Game Final Vote.

The reigning NL MVP pitched a complete game shutout and got some help on offense by A.J. Ellis and Jimmy Rollins who each homered as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0 at Dodger Stadium.

Kershaw fired his first shutout of the season and the 10th of his career as the three-time Cy Young Award winner scattered eight hits with a season-high 13 strikeouts and no walks in his final game before the All-Star Break.

"Sandy Koufax always said throwing a complete game is always the goal," Kershaw said. "It was nice to be able to shake the guys hands at the end of the game."

Kershaw's ERA was once over four earlier this season, but dropped to 2.85 after Wednesday's 123-pitch gem.

"He's the greatest pitcher on the planet," Ellis said simply when asked why Kershaw should make the NL All-Star Team.

Adam Morgan started for the Phillies allowing five runs on six hits in four innings. Morgan was making just his third start of his career, but feels he's learning more and more with every start.

"It's a process, but I feel great right now," Morgan said. "I feel like there's more, so I'm just going to keep working my butt off and hopefully take the ball whenever I get the chance."

In a game of tic-tac-toe between former players, it was once again Jimmy Rollins turn to vanquish his former club.

Rollins hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the third inning to give the Dodgers a five-run lead. The former Phillies shortstop went 2-for-4 with two runs, a double and a homer, two days after hitting the game-winning single in the opening game of the series.

"It was nice to give Clayton the early lead and not have him scratch and claw," Rollins said. "We got him the W and that's the most important."

Rollins played the first 15 years of his career with the Phillies, winning an NL MVP award and a World Championship with the team in 2008.

Ellis also homered, his first of the season. Ellis had a season-high three hits, connecting on a fastball in the second inning for his first longball since Sept. 19, 2014.

"It's always good to take a zero off one of your columns," Ellis said. "My teammates joked with me that I should be sponsored by Coke Zero before the game, but now I need a sponsorship deal with the card game Uno."

Rollins leadoff the second inning with a double to right field, and Ellis followed with a line drive to center that just cleared the fence.

"I had the double-double, and he had a four-by-four," Rollins joked, using an In-N-Out restaurant analogy. "It was nice to get a big hit, but A.J. is the one who put us on the board early."
