A 43-minute rain delay during the fourth inning? No problem. Kershaw struck out nine over six loooooong innings, redeeming himself like a coupon after his disastrous start in Arizona.
Offensively, there was barely enough from the Dodgers, something Kershaw is certainly used to. It was the Dee Show in the first inning; he singled, stole second, stole third and stole our hearts when he scored on a Puig single. Crawford hit a 420-foot home run in the second inning for that luxurious second run.
In his Dodgers debut, Erisbel Arruebarrena went 0 for 3 with three strikeouts and a walk.
