With Game 1 of the World Series in the books, it’s safe to say that Clayton Kershaw was dominant for the first time EVER in the MLB Playoffs and the actual World Series against Tampa Bay Rays.
Los Angeles Dodgers got themselves a game winning 8-3 against the underdog Tampa Bay Rays, but the man of the hour was no other than Clayton Kershaw, proving his worth to the Dodgers and dominating every single Ray (except for Kiermaier).
