It’s October which means it’s time for Clayton Kershaw to underperform in the postseason.
On Thursday night, Kershaw was pulled in the sixth inning of the Dodgers’ NLCS game against the Braves after giving up 4 earned runs in 5+ innings.

As is tradition, Kershaw was mocked for looking sad on the bench after blowing another playoff game.
