Clayton Kershaw loses perfect game on Hanley Ramirez error (Video)
Clayton Kershaw had a perfect game going through six innings against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, but he lost it when Hanley Ramirez made a throwing error on a chopper that allowed Corey Dickerson to reach base.
Dickerson was leading off the inning and chopped a 2-1 pitch to Ramirez, who made a wild throw up the line that went past Adrian Gonzalez and allowed Dickerson to reach second. It was a clear error by Hanley and was immediately scored as such.
Kershaw escaped the inning without allowing a hit or run, keeping the no-hitter intact. It’s too bad Hanley couldn’t make the play, because that was a pretty routine ball for an MLB shortstop and it would have given Kershaw a great chance at history. At least the two-time Cy Young winner was able to lock down the no-hitter.
Nice going, Hanley.
