Clayton Kershaw no-hit the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night, striking out 15 Rockies in the process, and walking none. His perfect game was lost in the 7th inning due to a Hanley Ramirez throwing error.
Nonetheless, the best pitcher in baseball was unbelievable, dominating one of baseball’s best offenses, and entering the record books with the 22nd no-no in Los Angeles Dodgers history. Teammate Josh Beckett no-hit the Philadelphia Phillies earlier in the season.
Over his last 4 starts, Kershaw has been masterful, with a strikeout to walk ratio of 40:1 in that span. If you doubted this man after his shoulder injury earlier in the year, shame on you.
He and Warren Spahn are the only pitchers in baseball history to allow 0 runs, 0 hits, 0 walks, and strike out 15 batters in a game.
