That Mo’ne Davis-Clayton Kershaw pitch off? Let’s call it a draw.

Mo’ne, the Little League ace from Philadelphia, had confidently challenged Kershaw, the Dodgers ace who is not of this world, to a mysterious “pitch off.” Kershaw didn’t know what that entailed, so he responded by inviting the 13-year-old sensation to visit Los Angeles.

A duel never materialized Tuesday night at Chavez Ravine, but the two pitchers showed why they have owned this summer on the mound.

Mo’ne handed out autographs, including one to a star struck Yasiel Puig, an outfielder for the Dodgers.

Mo’ne threw out the ceremonial first pitch — and fired a dart of a strike, outside corner at the knees.
