Not one single Colorado Rockies player was able to get a hit off Clayton Kershaw Wednesday night, and a bunch of them struck out (Kershaw tallied 15 Ks in all). After the game the thoroughly humiliated, hitless Rockies quickly vacated Dodger Stadium, not wanting to watch the triumphant Kershaw celebrate his historically dominating performance.
All except Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who stayed behind all alone to witness Kershaw’s jubilation.
Tulo just had to stand there soaking it in, feeling the full sting, experiencing every last ounce of pain. He wanted to let that image sear itself into his brain. The image of Kershaw and his teammates celebrating one of the most thorough pantsings in modern major league history.
Tulo went 0-3 in the game, but at least he wasn’t one of the strikeout victims. He’s got that going for him. He didn’t go down on strikes three times like Wilin Rosario. He put up somewhat of a fight.
Don’t be so sad, Troy Tulowitzki. So you got owned. It’s baseball. You come back the next night and you try to get your knocks. And thank goodness you don’t have to face Clayton Kershaw again. Cause right now your butt belongs to him.
