Kershaw breaks losing streak

Kershaw breaks losing streak

Clayton Kershaw took the mound today to try to stop a three game slide for the Dodgers and he didn’t

disappoint. Getting off to a slow start he managed to give up just 2 runs on 5 hits in his 7 innings of work to get his

3rd victory. Kenley Jansen got the last 4 outs for his 4 th save. For the Dodger hitters Enrique Hernandez playing for

Justin Turner at 3B tripled and doubled, and Scott Van Slyke added a homer. For the Rockies, Tyler Anderson gave

up 4 runs and six hits through 5 innings to take the loss. DJ LeMahieu had 2 hits and Trevor Story doubled in a

losing effort.

On this date In baseball history in 1890 the Brooklyn Bridegrooms who would later become the Dodgers

played their first game ever in the National league but lose to the Boston Beaneaters (who would later become the

braves) 15-9. In 1968 My favorite pitcher of all time a 21 year old Nolan Ryan strikes out the side on 9 pitches in

the third inning against the Dodgers, he would go on to strike out 11 in 7 1/3 innings. He would accomplish this

feat again in 1972 with the Angels. Lastly in 1972, Yankee reliever Sparky Lyle would come into the game with a

signature entrance song, the very first one to do that.
