Clayton Kershaw on Opening Day: Complete Game Shutout and First Career Home Run [GIF]

Clayton Kershaw, $200 million man? That’ll be the storyline tomorrow (and again and again this season) as the Franchise tossed a complete game shutout and homered in the bottom of the 8th to snap a 0-0 tie. The Dodgers beat the Giants, 4-0.

Kershaw became the first pitcher to throw a shutout and hit a homerun on Opening Day since Hall of Famer Bob Lemon did so in 1953 for the Indians.

Owner Magic Johnson approved of Kershaw’s opening day performance.
