Watch: Clayton Kershaw kicks cooler in dugout after being pulled
Clayton Kershaw was pulled early in Friday night’s Los Angeles Dodgers-San Francisco Giants game and was not happy about it.
Kershaw was lifted in the top of the fifth inning after allowing a leadoff single and walking Kevin Pillar on a 3-2 pitch. When he headed into the dugout after being pulled, the Dodgers southpaw kicked a cooler in the dugout.

That seriously looked like it could have hurt.
The kick probably wasn’t as painful as what transpired, though. Dylan Floro came in and gave up four runs to blow the tie game (two runs were charged to Kershaw). That was the difference as the Giants won 5-4.
Kershaw has now lost three straight starts for the first time since 2015, according to the team.
