Clayton Kershaw can do some things with a baseball in his hands that pitchers around Major League Baseball only wish they could do.
The Los Angeles Dodgers ace spun an absolute gem Tuesday night against the San Francisco Giants. The southpaw outdueled Madison Bumgarner, striking out 13 in a complete-game one-hitter as the Dodgers clinched another National League West title.
In the process, Kershaw threw one of the nastiest pitches we’ve seen all season. In fact, the filthy curveball he threw to Giants hitter Jarrett Parker might be one of the best pitches we’ve seen in a few seasons.
Check out the knee-buckler below. It’s borderline hypnotizing.
