When Clayton Kershaw was placed on the disabled list, many immediately counted the Dodgers out of the postseason; however, the bats woke up and rookie pitchers stepped up to help lead the team to first place! Well, there are no more reasons to count the Dodgers out because Clayton Kershaw has returned!

Let’s take a look at the highlights!

The Marlins would get on the board first thanks to a solo shot off the bat of J.T. Realmuto in the bottom of the first.

Then Kershaw would give up another run in the bottom of the second thanks to an RBI single by Chris Johnson.

Clayton Kershaw’s day would be done after only 3 innings! In the fifth inning, the Dodgers would go through Bud Norris, JP Howell, and Josh Fields and give up a couple of runs.

The Dodgers would avoid the shutout thanks to a solo shot by Yasmani Grandal, but would still drop the series opener 4-1.

The Dodgers will continue this series on Saturday at 4:10 PM PT with Rich Hill getting the start! Follow us on Twitter at @DodgersNation to get the play by play! Go Blue!
