We’ve been tough on Clayton Kershaw in the past, calling him names and even doing some photoshop work with him. Tonight, however, he proved he’s the real deal, recording 13Ks in 7IP, with only 1 hit, 1 walk and 1 ER. Pretty impressive, even if he was only playing the Giants.
Unfortunately for Kershaw, he left the game in the 8th and Hong-Chih Kuo blew the lead by giving up a 3 run homer to Rowand. Kershaw is still looking for his first win of the season, but it shouldn’t take long if he keeps this up.
If you want the complete Kershaw update (rather than my quick recap), one of the biggest Kershaw fanboys (who blogs) is Pyleoflist. He doesn’t have a post up yet for tonight’s game, but I’m going to preemptively link drop him, only because I’m so confident that he’ll have a Kershaw post any minute now.
