Kershaw led the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 8-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies with this no hitter. This gives the Dodgers the only two no-hitters in the major leagues this season. Josh Beckett threw the first one on May 25 in Philadelphia. Kershaw commented that he was amazed. He said Beckett told him he would show him how to do that and he therefore has him to thank for his no hitter.

Kershaw's wife was cheering him on in the stands as he retired his first 18 batters before Corey Dickerson led off the seventh with a slow bouncing ball to Ramirez. Ramirez threw the ball widely past first baseman Adrian Gonzalez for a two-base error therefore ending a chance for a perfect game. But that was it for Colorado against Kershaw with a crowd of 46,069 on its feet and roaring loudly as he pitched a no hitter.

Prior to this no hitter Kershaw had already gained a reputation as the best pitcher in all of baseball after winning two Cy Young Awards in the past three seasons reports Newsday. After throwing his 107th and final pitch Kershaw raised his arms above his head with a huge smile on his face as he waited for a hug from catcher A.J. Ellis. Moments later his teammates doused him with two large buckets and he got a warm hug from his wife. This appears to have been an experience of a lifetime and is the kind of moment great Hollywood movies are made from.
