What was Clayton Kershaw to do Monday with Dodger great Sandy Koufax in attendance on Opening Day at Dodger Stadium?

How about throw one of the games of his life in complete-game 4-0 win over the San Francisco Giants?

And hit a solo home run in the eighth inning to break open a scoreless tie?

That's what he did, dialing up a dominant game by allowing just four hits while striking out seven in just 94 pitches.

Can you say Koufax-like?

Well, with the greatest Dodgers left-hander of them all on hand, a revved up, sellout crowd at Chavez Ravine cheering him on a the expectations of a new season riding on the performance, Kershaw was simply brilliant.

It sets a great tone for the Dodgers, and kicks Kershaw off to a terrific start to his season.
