Kershaw Helps Dodgers Win Game 1, MLB Player Taking Knee Denied Service


Dodgers pitching ace Clayton Kershaw made Tuesday night’s game one of the World Series look easy. With 11 strikeouts in a 3-1 win over the Houston Astros, the 2 hour 28 minute was the shortest World Series game in 25 years. The Dodgers began the night on a high when Chris Taylor hit a home-run on the first pitch of the game (only the 4th player in history to do so in a World Series game). It’s only the first game, but according to the stats, 64% of the time, the game 1 winner wins the best of seven series.  At 103 degrees, the game was also the hottest game in post-season baseball history. Game 2 is Wednesday night at 8:09 pm ET.

Oakland Athletics catcher Bruce Maxwell claims he was denied service at a restaurant in Alabama because he knelt during the National Anthem. Maxwell is the only Major League Baseball player so far to kneel during the Anthem, and according to Maxwell, the waiter was upset. Maxwell told TMZ, “He was like, ‘You’re the guy who took the knee? I voted for Trump and I stand for everything he stands for.’ ”
