With Clayton Kershaw on the mound Friday, the Los Angeles Dodgers cruised to a win over the Colorado Rockies. Kershaw shutout the Rockies in eight innings of work, which allowed the Dodgers to take the lead and they never looked back.
While Kershaw was once again dominant, picking up eight strikeouts along the way, he got a little help from his defense in the fourth inning.
With one out and the Dodgers leading 4-0, Nolan Arenado hit a chopper up along the third base line that Juan Uribe fielded in foul territory and made a jump-throw to get the ball in time to Adrian Gonzalez, who made a nice scoop.
Uribe’s smooth-handed play brought a smile to Kershaw’s face and he raised his arms in the air as if to thank and praise Uribe for the play.
The Dodger third baseman has suffered two hamstring strains this season but has otherwise once again been a steady glove at the hot corner and a key contributor in the lineup.
