Of all the agonizing playoff outings for Clayton Kershaw, Wednesday's blown save in Game 5 against the Washington Nationals may stay with the three-time Cy Young winner the longest.

The Los Angeles Dodgers ace didn't shy away from questions after the game, though, as he instead owned up to his poor postseason performance.

"It's just a terrible feeling," Kershaw said, according to Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times. "No excuses."

"Everything people say about the postseason is true right now," he added, according to Elliott. "It might linger for a while."
