Dodgers' Kershaw calls last start 'probably the most frustrating game I've ever pitched'
Clayton Kershaw called his start Wednesday night against the Texas Rangers "probably the most frustrating game I've ever pitched.” He only gave up three earned runs and struck out 10 in six innings, but he also gave up a monstrous home run to rookie left-handed batter Joey Gallo.
It was also the Dodgers' third straight loss to Kershaw's hometown ball club. All three games have been close. ESPN’s Mark Saxon writes:
Of course, for Kershaw this one was more personal than most, with many of his friends and family back home in Dallas no doubt watching on TV. It was his first career start against the Texas Rangers, the team he grew up cheering on. His childhood idol was first baseman Will Clark.
After the inning in which he surrendered the home run to Gallo, Kershaw appeared angrier than he’s ever been seen in the dugout.
