The glove missed the ball, Kershaw picked up the ball and flipped it to first base to erase Rutledge.
"I don't know what I was thinking," said Kershaw, who won a Gold Glove in 2011. "I do it in batting practice when I'm shagging ground balls. I think I better stop doing that. It could have ruined things. It's kind of become a habit that I ought to break. It was dumb, just dumb."
