Clayton Kershaw on the mound at Dodger Stadium against the Rockies is not a fair fight.
On June 18, 2014, Kershaw no-hit the Rockies in one of the greatest pitching performances of all time. The lefty struck out a career-high 15 that night, allowing his only baserunner on a throwing error by shortstop Hanley Ramirez in Los Angeles’ 8-0 victory.
Friday night at Dodger Stadium, Kershaw, now 34, wasn’t nearly as close to perfect, but he was dominant nonetheless. He pitched six scoreless innings in Los Angeles’ 10-1 victory over the slumping Rockies, who’ve lost a season-high six games.
In 21 starts against the Rockies in Los Angeles, Kershaw is 14-3 with a 1.81 ERA.
