Joe Kelly battles fan ... at rock-paper-scissors

June 4th, 2021

If you’re going to challenge a big league pitcher to any kind of competitive game, make sure you bring your best.

Dodgers reliever passed some downtime during Los Angeles’ 14-3 rout of the Cardinals on Wednesday night with a game of rock-paper-scissors against a young fan in the Dodger Stadium crowd. Kelly had a rapt audience among his bullpen mates, and it appears he at least took one round -- based on his opponent’s reaction.

It’s unclear who won the best-of-five, or best-of-seven or … whatever best-of it took for one side to be satisfied.
