2013 Baseball Season

Great way to start the season.

Kershaw's HR and shutout lead Dodgers over Giants

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Clayton Kershaw launched his first career home run to break a scoreless tie in the eighth inning, then finished off a four-hitter Monday that led the Los Angeles Dodgers over the San Francisco Giants 4-0 on opening day.

Kershaw became the first pitcher to throw a shutout and hit a home run in an opener since Bob Lemon for Cleveland in 1953, STATS said.

Kershaw struck out seven, walked none and retired World Series MVP Pablo Sandoval on a grounder to end it.

The former Cy Young winner began the day as a career .146 batter with only one extra-base hit in 261 at-bats. But he sent the first pitch from George Kontos (0-1) over the center-field wall, triggering a standing ovation and prolonged roar from the sellout crowd of 53,000.

After high-fiving his teammates, Kershaw tipped his cap from the dugout.

Kershaw became the first pitcher in the majors to homer on opening day since Joe Magrane of St. Louis in 1988, and the first Dodgers pitcher to do it since Don Drysdale in 1965.

''I never knew what that felt like,'' Kershaw said.

Dodgers Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax, wearing his vintage No. 32 jersey, threw out the ceremonial first ball. In 1964, Koufax pitched the first opening-day shutout at Dodger Stadium.

Oh... You're talking about Sabathia....!

I though you were referring to the Dodger-Giants game... That's what threw me... Your post was sorta vague...

yeah, just read that HAHA !!!!

feel sorry for the guy, but there will be plenty of pitchers this year that have bids to "perfect game" or "no-hit" the Astros.

this team consists of Class A ball players and 3 or 4 veterans that wouldn't be on anyone's roster except for the Astros, who are predicted to lose 107 games.....

i watch Batting Practice.

i purposely go to games a couple hours early for the "door prizes" and to sit along the Crawford Boxes in left field to catch homeruns.....

i'll still never EVER forget watching Sammy Sosa hit 3 homeruns in a row over the Railroad Tracks at Minute Maid park out into the street...

he was literally hitting balls out of the stadium......

that was about 2002 or 2003....
