Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw made history on Wednesday night for himself and the boys in blue. Kershaw pitched his first no hitter and became the first pitcher EVER to strikeout 15 batters before allowing a single hit or walk.
It was the Dodgers’ second no-hitter this season, in an 8-0 victory over the Rockies before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 46,069.
Kershaw’s was the 12th no-hitter in Los Angeles Dodgers history and 284th in Major League Baseball. He was so dominant that he came within a seventh-inning error by shortstop Hanley Ramirez of throwing a perfect game. You think he’s mad at Hanley or nah?
The 26-year-old lefty has been on a roll for a minute. In his last four games, Kershaw has struck out 40 batters and walked only one.
You knew it was going to be a special night just from the fact that the cast of your 90’s TGIF favorite, “Boy Meets World” was on hand to celebrate their upcoming Disney channel spinoff.
