After the series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals, Clayton Kershaw added another chapter to what is a brewing rivalry.
On Sunday, Hanley Ramirez was hit twice by Cardinals pitchers. Once on the shoulder and then again on his left hand, which caused him to leave the game. This was an all too familiar scene for many Dodger fans who saw Ramirez get hit in the ribs last October in Game 1 of the 2013 NLCS by Joe Kelly.
Kershaw responded by hitting outfielder Matt Holliday the following inning and that led to warnings for both teams. The Dodger ace discussed Ramirez’s tough evening after the game and expressed his disapproval over the manner Cardinals pitchers were throwing up in the zone near Ramirez’s head.
Ramirez wasn’t the only Dodger that got hurt during the series, Yasiel Puig was also removed from the game on Saturday after being hit on his left hand by a pitch. Puig and Ramirez were taken in for X-rays and the results were negative for both. Manager Don Mattingly said Ramirez was unavailable for Monday’s game.
