Austin Slater entered Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers with two singles in nine career at-bats against Clayton Kershaw,.
Everything changed for the Giants right fielder in their 5-4 win over their archrival.
Slater homered off Kershaw in the third inning, and then he did it again in the fifth inning, becoming the first Giants player with two homers off the Dodgers ace in the same game.
After the game, an intrepid (presumably) Giants fan went to Slater's Wikipedia page and made a change.
Yes, you interpreted that correctly. Slater is Kershaw's daddy. The edit lasted a few hours before "Son: Clayton Kershaw" was removed.

Regardless of what his Wiki page says, it's a night Slater never will forget. Kershaw arguably is the best pitcher of the current generation, so to take him deep twice in a game has to be a career highlight for the 27-year-old.
Following Saturday's game, Slater now is hitting .310/.394/.586 with two homers and three RBI in 29 at-bats over 10 games.
Slater's performance against Kershaw and the Dodgers makes the case that he should play more consistently. But that's up to first-year Giants manager Gabe Kapler.
Our recommendation? Put Kershaw's daddy in the lineup as much as possible.
