Nobody could’ve predicted that Clayton Kershaw would end up saving a game that 20-year-old Julio Urias won as the youngest Dodgers’ pitcher in postseason history after Kenley Jansen came into the game in the seventh inning and threw 51 pitches.
As it turns out, the only other time that Kershaw has saved a game in his professional career came with Jansen behind the plate.

Kershaw' first save since 2006 for the Gulf Coast Dodgers over the Gulf Coast Nationals. Guess who his catcher was? Kenley Jansen.— Wes Reynolds (@WesReynolds1) October 14, 2016
