That is just crazy.
In his last start, Kershaw struck out 11 batters and walked one in six full innings of work. However, he did surrender five earned runs on six hits, which included a three-run home run by Marlins outfielder Adam Duvall. Despite that, Kershaw secured the win thanks to his batters gaining eight runs in the bottom of the second inning.
Through nine starts this season, Kershaw has recorded a 3.20 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 57 strikeouts and nine walks in 50.2 innings of work.
Considering this video is circulating on social media, expect fans to replicate Kershaw’s challenge.
