Madison Bumgarner Hits Home Run Off Clayton Kershaw (Video)

Madison Bumgarner home run off Clayton Kershaw

For the third time this season, 2014 World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner and 2014 NL MVP Clayton Kershaw squared off against one another, and for the third time it was the Giants ace emerging victorious over the Dodgers ace.

But what made today’s victory even more special for Bumgarner was the fact that he didn’t just out-pitch Kershaw—he out-hit him too, smacking a 415-foot solo shot off the lefty in the bottom of the third inning.

That was the first home run Clayton Kershaw had ever given up to an opposing pitcher:

Bumgarner also pitched 6.1 innings of shutout ball, as the Giants cruised to a 4-0 victory, extending their win-streak to six games.
