It’s tough to have a better start to a Major League Baseball game than the one Clayton Kershaw had in Miami, Florida this evening.
Kershaw, starting for the Dodgers in game two of their series at Miami, struck out the first seven batters he faced.
The Dodgers’ ace retired the first nine batters of the game, giving up a groundout to hitter No. 8 before striking out the ninth batter.
It doesn’t get much better than this:
SEVEN straight Ks to start the game for @ClaytonKersh22. 🔥

Los Angeles crushed Miami, 15-1, on Tuesday night.
The Dodgers are off to a 4-0 lead this evening and, based on Kershaw’s performance so far, it’s looking like it’ll be another easy win for LA.
Los Angeles is going for win No. 81 on the year.
