On Saturday Clayton Kershaw started for the OKC Dodgers in what was the final chapter of his rehab. Luckily, he did absolutely fantastic.
Kershaw went 5 innings and struck out 8 batters to go with 0 walks. On top of that he only allowed 2 hits and 1 run!

Clayton Kershaw spoke with the media after the start and he had nothing but positive things to say. In regards to his health, which is priority number one, Kershaw had this to say:
I’m glad I got to get back out there and everything felt healthy and good to go so excited for the next one.

Since Kershaw exited his start early on July 23rd, the Dodgers are 23-6 and seem unstoppable. The return of their ace will make this powerhouse of a team even better, which seems ludicrous. Good luck to the Padres, who will be the first team to face a healthy, hungry Clayton Kershaw.
