    Clayton Kershaw in a battle of All-Star pitchers.But given the Miami Marlins
    recent slide out of primary contention for a National League wild-card playoff
    berth, perhaps this marquee should be shifted off Broadway.Because of the recent
    slump by the 69-71 Marlins, Fridays matchup may be bigger for Kershaws Los
    Angeles Dodgers. This will be the first start off the disabled list for Kershaw,
    who hasnt pitched since June 26 due to a back injury.If the three-time Cy Young
    Award winner is indeed the Kershaw of old, it would be hugely positive news for
    the Dodgers (79-60), who lead the San Francisco Giants by five games in the
    battle for the NL West title.Kershaw, a 28-year-old lefty, was dominant this
    year before his injury, posting an 11-2 record with a 1.79 ERA.For his career,
    Kershaw is 125-58 with a 2.39 ERA. He is the type of pitcher who can push the
    Dodgers -- if everything breaks right -- a long way in the 2016 postseason.But,
    to get back to a point in which Kershaw flat-out dominates opponents, he said he
    will need some time.At this point, its more of a pitch-count deal, making sure I
    can contribute and not just kind of go out there, Kershaw told media members
    earlier this week. Were still working the kinks out.Kershaw said that it helps
    that its after Sept. 1, and the Dodgers -- like all teams -- have an expanded
    roster and more relievers available in case he doesnt last long on the
    mound.When hes right, Kershaw features two-seam and four-seam fastballs, ranging
    between 91 and 95 mph, and mixes in a nasty curve and an even nastier
    slider.Kershaw will match up against Fernandez, who is four years younger but is
    already a two-time All-Star and one of the best right-handers in the
    game.Fernandez is 13-8 with a 3.03 ERA this season. For his career, he is 35-17
    with a 2.62 ERA. Fernandez truly shines is at Marlins Park, where he is almost
    unbeatable at 27-2.Fernandezs home-road splits have become even more pronounced
    this year. He is just 3-6 with a 4.46 ERA on the road but is 10-2 with a 1.91
    ERA at home.Kershaw, meanwhile, is 4-1 with a 2.29 ERA on the road this
    year.Fans at Marlins Park should be prepared for a show because Fernandez has
    immense pride and wears his emotions on his uniform sleeves. He will no doubt be
    jacked up to face a pitcher of the caliber of Kershaw, six-time All-Star and the
    NL MVP in 2014.I think Jose enjoys these big matchups, Marlins shortstop and
    fellow Cuban native Adeiny Hechavarria said in Spanish. He belongs in a group
    with the best pitchers in the league, but I still think he wants to prove it,
    and thats good.Fernandez will also try to prove himself at the plate, a role he
    relishes. He is a very good hitting pitcher, as his .273 batting average this
    season proves.In 128 career at-bats, Fernandez has four doubles, one triple and
    two homers, and the Dodgers cant take him lightly with a bat in his hands.Most
    of the time, though, the Marlins will let their real hitters take their chances
    against Kershaw, and that lineup of batters has received a boost this week as
    several players have returned from injuries.First baseman Justin Bour (ankle)
    and outfielder Marcell Ozuna (wrist) returned to the starting lineup on
    Wednesday. Right fielder Giancarlo Stanton (groin) came back on Tuesday but only
    as a pinch-hitter.Maybe Marlins manager Don Mattingly will give Stanton --
    perhaps the most feared power hitter in the NL -- his first start since the
    injury on Friday against Kershaw, adding to what would be a crowded marquee.The
    Marlins, who trailed the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals by five games
    entering Thursday nights action, can certainly use the boost that Stantons bat
    could provide.

    point guard Jaylen Fisher led a balanced attack with 13 points and TCU bounced
    back from its first loss under new coach Jamie Dixon with a 72-63 victory
    against Wofford on Saturday.JD Miller was another of five players in double
    figures with 12 points for the Horned Frogs (9-1) in the first meeting between
    the schools. Dixon improved to 3-0 against the Terriers after beating them twice
    in 13 years at Pittsburgh.Brandon Parrish had two 3-pointers for all six of his
    points, the first giving the Horned Frogs their first double-digit lead midway
    through the second half and the other ending an 8-0 run that got the Terriers
    within three points in the final two minutes.Fletcher Magee scored 18 points for
    Wofford (3-7), a four-time qualifier for the NCAA Tournament since 2010 but

    the Mustangs, had 20 free throws to none for the Terriers in the first half. The
    Horned Frogs finished with a season-high 41 to eight for Wofford but shot just
    59 percent from the line to help keep the Terriers close.Kenrichh Williams had
    his fourth double-double of the season with 11 points and 13 rebounds for TCU
    and Vladimir Brodziansky had 10 points and eight rebounds.ddddddddddddDesmond

    most of their losses, a solid sign in pursuit of another Southern Conference
    tournament title that would secure another trip to the NCAAs.TCU: Dixon wasnt
    happy with SMU being more aggressive and getting more free throws. His players
    answered with strong moves to the basket that resulted in plenty of trips to the
    line.UP NEXTWofford: The Terriers play Austin Peay at home Thursday followed by
    road games at Coastal Carolina (Dec. 19) and Georgia Tech (Dec. 22) before
    conference play starts Dec. 31 at home against Mercer.TCU: After an eight-day
    break, the Horned Frogs have two more tuneups before the Big 12 opener against
    No. 3 Kansas at home on Dec. 30. Texas Southern visits Dec. 18, followed by
    Bradley on Dec. 21.---More AP college basketball:
