Waking up to Clayton Kershaw on the DL was probably the worst thing possible for Dodger fans. Everybody was crushed but, of course, the Dodgers were still able to put a smile on our faces with an 8-1 victory over the Brewers! Let’s take a look at the highlights!

The Brewers started off strong in the bottom of the first loading the bases and sure enough would end up getting a run on a sacrifice fly.

That score wouldn’t last for long because in the top of the 2nd inning, Trayce Thompson would hit a 2-run, skyrocket home run to left center!

But Trayce wouldn’t be alone in the home run party, in the top of the of the 4th Yaz added one to the lead with a solo shot!

You know how much Corey Seager loves to be in the headlines and sure enough he also joined the home run party with a two run blast!

Puig’s recently hot bat would also add one to the lead with an RBI single scoring Adrian Gonzalez from second!

In the top of the 6th, with runners on the corners, Justin Turner hit an RBI single scoring Yaz from third which would be followed by an RBI double by AGon!

@DodgerInsider on twitter had some great analysis for today’s offense!

With an 8-1 lead, J.P. Howell would come in to retire the side and secure the series victory for the Dodgers!

Even though the day started off terribly with the announcement that Kershaw would be going on the DL, the Dodgers were still able to get the bats going and get an amazing victory! Tomorrow the Dodgers will face the Rockies at home at 7:10 PM PST. Go Blue!

  1. For those who don’t know it…Yaz…is Yasmani Grandal!  For a moment, I thought Yastremski had signed a contract with the DODGERS…
