Clayton Kershaw works out at chilly Fenway ahead of Series opener

BOSTON -- Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw got an early look at Fenway Park, working out in shorts in the bullpen ahead of Tuesday night's World Series opener.

The Dodgers arrived in Boston on Sunday, one day after winning the NL pennant. Kershaw pitched the ninth inning for the save in a 5-1 Game 7 victory at Milwaukee.

Los Angeles has one scheduled workout at Fenway before facing the Red Sox. That session is set for late Monday afternoon.

Kershaw has never pitched at Fenway and is expected to start the opener. The 30-year-old left-hander's workout was caught by a video camera and posted by MLB.com.

He wore a blue bandanna and a long-sleeved shirt with the sleeve of his pitching arm pulled up on an evening with the temperature in the 40s. With his baseball glove on his right hand and a baseball in his left, he stretched and went through the motions of his stretch and windup without throwing the ball.

A three-time NL Cy Young Award winner, Kershaw has pitched in 29 big league ballparks, including the Sydney Cricket Ground in Australia and two each for Atlanta, Miami and the New York Mets.
