Clayton Kershaw's reaction to serving up a homer to Yasiel Puig in Puig's return to LA was perfect
Monday night in Los Angeles featured an undeniably compelling storyline:
Seeing him in red coming out of the opposing dugout makes for an unfamiliar visual, I can't lie.
It was a high-energy matchup, and Puig took full advantage. In his very first at-bat in his return as a visiting player, Puig crushed a no-doubt, two-run homer to center field on a 1-2 pitch, tossing the bat away for good measure.

Kershaw's reaction to having served up a homer to his longtime teammate and emotional figurehead of the franchise was pretty much how you'd react in the same situation.
Feels like we've all been there before, in one way or another.
Adrian Garro joined MLB.com in 2016. Throughout his travels, both Bartolo Colon and Vin Scully have placed their hands on his shoulders. Not at the same time, though. That'd be amazing.
