Clayton Kershaw hit in face by comebacker - Watch

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw was hit in the face with a line drive Friday but did not come out of the game.

Andy Parrino’s soft liner struck Kershaw on the left side of his face. Third baseman Juan Uribe picked it up and threw wildly past first base, setting up the A’s only run.

Kershaw fell in front of the mound then was examined by Dodgers trainer Stan Conte before throwing a warmup pitch. He remained in the game and allowed one run on three hits overall. He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

Kershaw also had a hit.

Sonny Gray and Barry Zito each had solid outings for the Athletics. Gray allowed two runs on four hits in 5 1-3 innings. Zito, in the hunt for a spot in the starting rotation, pitched three perfect innings, striking out five.
