An Emotional Clayton Kershaw Speaks Out After Exiting Game In 2nd Inning

A bitter sweet night at Dodger Stadium.

Kershaw was making his fourth start since returning from a nearly three month layoff. But after making 42 pitches and giving up three runs in 1 2/3 innings, Kershaw left the field in "shock." 

"Kinda the same thing I’ve been dealing with and [it] just got bad enough to where I couldn’t keep going tonight," Kershaw said after the game. "Haven’t quite wrapped my head around that yet. The biggest thing was I just wanted to be a part of this team through October. 
"That’s the hardest part for me right now, just knowing that chances are that it’s not looking good for October right now. ... I've known that. I know that we're gonna do something special this year, and I wanted to be a part of that."

Manager Dave Roberts said Kershaw will have further tests on Saturday to determine the extent of the injury.
