The Clayton Kershaw hat trick

Hockey has the Gordie Howe hat trick: a goal, an assist and a fight.

After last night, we're establishing the Clayton Kershaw hat trick: five shutout innings, a win and an ejection.

The Dodgers ace pulled it off against the D-backs, earning victory No. 19 despite the heave-ho from home-plate umpire Bill Welke in the sixth inning.

Added bonus: Kershaw also kept all his teeth.
