Kershaw makes behind-the-back snag

MILWAUKEE -- It must be more than luck when Clayton Kershaw gloves a potential base hit behind his back.

He did it again during Monday night's 4-3 loss to the Brewers, robbing former teammate Elian Herrera of a ball headed toward center field by snagging it with his glove behind his back and throwing Herrera out.

Kershaw robbed Tim Hudson of a hit with a similar play last year.
