Clayton Kershaw pitched arguably one of the best games in baseball history as he threw a no-hitter Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies. However, the no-hitter could have been a perfect game if it wasn’t for one mishap.
In the top of the seventh inning, Corey Dickerson hit a chopper to Hanley Ramirez at shortstop. Ramirez committed a throwing error on the play, ending the perfect game for Kershaw.
Kershaw told Everett Cook of the LA Times that he doesn’t blame Ramirez for the error and that it was a pretty tough play to make. Kershaw did complete the no-hitter and Ramirez was removed from shortstop later in the ball game.
