For as much intensity and focus the Los Angeles Dodgers display on the field, hardly a day goes by without someone keeping the air light. From exchanges on social media to friendly jabs in the clubhouse, the Dodgers are no strangers to good-natured ribbing.
Kiké Hernandez often times is at the center of a joke, whether on the receiving end because of his love for his dogs, or because it’s Hernandez who’s poking fun at a teammate. He took a backseat to Clayton Kershaw on Friday night, however.
Right as Spectrum SportsNet LA reporter Alanna Rizzo was beginning an in-game interview with newly minted All-Star Justin Turner, Kershaw began to dance his way through the dugout.
Hernandez spotted his teammate and gave him a look of confusion. While Kershaw eventually worked his way out of the camera shot, Scott Van Slyke peppered Turner with sunflower seeds.

The Dodgers certainly have plenty to reason to dance and laugh. They enter play Saturday on a four-game winning streak and with the best home record in the Majors at 37-11.
What’s more, the Dodgers are in the midst of a 24-4 stretch and are tied with the Houston Astros for the best record in baseball.
