Julio Urias Gives Dodgers Last Laugh as Padres Winless Since ‘Crying Kershaw’ Incident

The Petco Park Jumbotrons have been pretty bare the last two nights. After the Padres displayed their classlessness and immaturity following Friday night’s 5-2 win, it was the Dodgers who got the last laugh.

The Dodgers took the final two games of the weekend, stealing the series from San Diego, and putting the Padres in their place — third place in the NL West, that is. 

A come-from-behind primetime victory on Sunday night was the final dagger in what turned out to be a great series for the Dodgers, finally putting last year’s NLDS demons behind them.

The Padres tried to create some new demons, playing with fire with a meme of Clayton Kershaw crying. But now, a new curse has been created — one that shows that the Padres are winless since displaying the disrespectful and unnecessary meme on their Jumbotron.

Following the Dodgers’ 5-2 victory on Sunday night, Julio Urias, who started the game for the Dodgers, spoke about the incident. He put it as perfectly as anyone could, in a sentence that should show up in a Drake song sooner rather than later.

“Whoever laughs last, laughs best.”

The Dodgers are the ones laughing, as they head to Milwaukee for a three-game series with the Brewers. 

Despite all the offseason turmoil, all the injuries and people wondering if the Dodgers were finally done in the NL West, they responded.

They took two out of three from San Diego, moved to 21-14 on the year and have a nice 1.5 game cushion in the NL West over the second-place Arizona Diamondbacks. The Dodgers are three games up on the third-place Padres.

The Dodgers and Padres will meet for round two of the 2023 season this upcoming weekend, this time at Dodger Stadium. That’ll be our next check in to see how the Padres are doing in the post-Kershaw meme era.
