Mets Meet Clayton Kershaw’s Uncle Charlie
Most batters bring a piece of useless lumber to a gunfight against Clayton Kershaw, and tonight was no different. Kershaw was perfect through six innings against the Mets until giving up a leadoff single to Curtis Granderson. He would end the night with a complete game shutout, giving up 3 hits, 0 BBs, and notching 11 K.
Perhaps nothing better illustrated Kershaws dominance over the Mets batters than this sick offspeed curveball on the black to CF Juan Lagares:
That's just cruel. Kershaw's scoreless streak is now up to 29 innings, but with stuff like that, expect it to increase.
