Los Angeles Dodgers’ ace, and two-time Cy Young Awatrd winner, Clayton Kershaw reached yet another milestone in his amazing career as he recorded his first career no-hitter against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night.
For a lefty, it was one of the most masterful performances that we’ve seen in a no-no. Through nine innings of work, Kershaw notched strikeouts, looking as dominant as anyone has ever looked from start to finish.
What made the accomplishment that much more special was the fact that legendary announcer Vin Scully was on the call. For his particular career, this was the 19th no-hitter than Scully has called, in addition to his three perfect games he’s brought everyone through.
Watch in the video below as Kershaw makes history, and Scully calls it.
There really is no better way to watch a no-hitter take place than with Scully on the microphone.
This moment was almost better, believe it or not.
Headed into the seventh inning, Kershaw actually had not allowed a base runner, signaling that a perfect game could be on the horizon. Unfortunately, though, shortstop Hanley Ramirez made a throwing error to first base on the first batter.
Still, Kershaw settled right back in and got the work done.
This was the second no-no of the season for the Dodgers, following Josh Beckett’s that he tossed last month.
