    NEW YORK — 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.

    Kershaw went 16-9 and topped the NL with 232 strikeouts. He won the NL Cy Young in 2011 and finished second last year.

    Scherzer won the AL honor after leading the majors in wins while going 21-3. He received 28 of 30 first-place votes.
