2. June 19 vs Dodgers. Final Score: 10-6

This was a day that no baseball fan ever expected. Clayton Kershaw just won his 10th game of the season, but at the same time, it was one of his worst starts ever. He sailed through the first two perfect innings and was up 7-0 at the start of the third.

He gave up a lead-off home run to Jose Reyes to start the third. Normally that’s about all that Clayton will give up in a game, but this was different. In the fourth and fifth innings, he gave up blasts to Jay Bruce and Gavin Cecchini respectfully, and then another to Reyes in the seventh. It was the first four home run outing of his career. It was also the most earned runs he’s given up in an outing since May 17th, 2014.
