When Kershaw fell from the tree… 4 innings, 2 runs, Dodgers 6 consecutive wins end 

 Los Angeles Dodgers’ eternal ace Clayton Kershaw (35) also sometimes falls from a tree. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers lost 1-5 in an interleague home game against the 2023 Major League Minnesota Twins held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 17th (hereinafter Korean time). 

The Dodgers, who ranked first in the National League West, recorded 27 wins and 16 losses in the season, ending their six-game winning streak. On the other hand, Minnesota, which ranked first in the American League Central Division, was 24-19. 

Minnesota took the lead from the first inning. Following Donovan Solano’s double in the lead, Carlos Correa and Byron Buxton struck out one after another, but Kyle Palmer hit Kershaw with an RBI first and timely. It was the moment when the final blow was struck. 

In the 4th inning, Michael A. Taylor, the lead, walked, and Joey Gallo was safely on 1st and 3rd base with a right-handed hit, while Willy Castro hit a timely RBI that ran away. And in the 5th inning, Buxton’s walk and steal, and Alex Kirilov’s sand ball, Ryan Jeffers, 1st out and 3rd baseman, widened the gap with a squeeze bunt.

The Dodgers, who missed 1st and 2nd base with 1 out in the 1st inning and 2nd and 3rd base safely in the 4th inning, finally succeeded in scoring their first run in the 5th inning. Following Miguel Rojas’ double from the lead, Austin Barnes and Mookie Betts retreated in succession, but Freddie Freeman hit a timely hit with one RBI in pursuit. 

The Dodgers took the lead in the 7th inning, leading the game 1-3, with David Peralta’s double and Betts and Freeman’s consecutive walks, giving the Dodgers a chance with two outs loaded. 먹튀검증
