Clayton Kershaw throw no-hitter against the Rockies

Clayton-Kershaw Clayton Kershaw throws his first career no-hitter Wednesday night against the Colorado Rockies while striking out a career high 15 batters in a 8-0 shutout. Kershaw's no-hitter was the 22nd no-hitter in Dodgers franchise history and the second no-hitter in many weeks, Josh Beckett doing it against the Phillies last month.

Colorado Rockies entered the night leading majors in batting average as a team but they were no match for the two-time national league Cy Young Award winner, who threw 107 pitches and nearly had a perfect game. Kershaw retired the first 18 batters before Corey Dickerson hit a slow ground ball in the seventh inning to Dodgers' shortstop Hanley Ramirez whose throw sailed past first baseman Adrian Gonzalez resulting in a two-base error.

This is the second time the Rockies have been no-hit by a Dodger. The first time happened in 1996 season when Hideo Nomo did the unthinkable throwing a no-hitter at Coors Field.
