No matter when he enters the game, Clayton Kershaw just can't get it done in October. With the Dodgers holding a 3-1 lead late in the game, they turned to the superstar southpaw in hopes of locking the game away. Well, the plan got off to an ice cold start in the eighth inning as Kersh served up a meatball to Anthony Rendon to lead off the frame.
3-2 ball game.
But wait, the very next pitch was to none other than cleanup hitter Juan Soto, who managed to go back-to-back off the lefty and draw the game even at three runs apiece.
The back-to-back blasts would put an early end to Kershaw's night as he was removed from the game immediately afterwards. Just another rough day at the office for Kershaw, a common trend for him in October.
The Nationals just won't go away in this one!
