16 years of Kershaw’s career, nothing like this has happened… ‘Prohibited drug villain’ worked

Clayton Kershaw (35, LA Dodgers) suffered the first humiliation in his 16-year major league career by Fernando Tatis Jr. (24, San Diego Padres).

Kershaw started 메이저사이트on the 6th (Korean time) in the ‘2023 Major League’ match against San Diego held at Petco Park in San Diego, California, USA, and collapsed with 4 runs with 8 hits (2 homers), 5 walks and 7 strikeouts in 4⅔ innings. Kershaw made a big success with 5 wins and 1 loss in 6 games this year, 38 innings, 41 strikeouts, and an average ERA of 1.89 before the game, but his ERA soared to 2.53 due to the sluggish performance that day.

It was crucial that he hit two home runs from Tatis Jr. Kershaw allowed Tatis Jr. a solo shot to tie the score in the middle of the 3rd at the end of the 1-0 lead, and in the bottom of the 5th, he was hit with a left-handed two-run gun, making the score 1-3. Tatis Jr. was responsible for Kershaw’s first early rout of the season and the Dodgers’ 2-5 loss.

According to Sarah Reims of MLB.com, Kershaw allowed multiple home runs to a batter in a single game only nine times in 16 years. Tatis Jr. is the only hitter to steal multiple home runs from Kershaw twice in one game. Tatis Jr. also hit a multi-home run against Kershaw against the Dodgers on April 24, 2021. And until this day, Kershaw had the 8th and 9th painful memories in a row.

In an interview with local reporters in the US after the game, Tatis Jr. did not hide his joy, saying, “Kershaw is one of the best pitchers of all time. When I face a pitcher like that, I prepare 100% for the day.”

Tatis Jr. drew attention by signing an extension with San Diego ahead of the 2021 season for a total of 340 million dollars (approximately 451.1 billion won) over 14 years. He hit 42 home runs in the first year of his extended contract, marking the birth of a superstar shortstop.

However, due to frequent shoulder and wrist injuries, he recently turned to the outfield and returned to the field at the end of last month after being suspended for 80 games in August of last year for taking a banned substance. Tatis Jr., a bad boy, shows off his ‘devil’s talent’ as soon as he returns, embarrassing even ace Kershaw, who is likely to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
