Clayton Kershaw Leads Dodgers Over Brewers 5-1

Clayton Kershaw continued his stellar season, pitching eight scoreless innings on Thursday against the Brewers, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-1 win in the finale of a four-game series at Miller Park in Milwaukee. It was the seventh win for Kershaw in his last eight starts, and it snapped a six-game winning streak by Milwaukee.

Kershaw has allowed nine earned runs in his last eight starts. He walked none and struck out six Thursday against the Brewers, giving him a National League-leading 199 punchouts on the season. Kershaw is 15-5 with a 2.60 ERA, and has walked two or fewer batters in 21 of 26 starts this year.

Rod Barajas homered in the second inning and had two hits on the day. Barajas has 11 home runs on the season, which is second on the Dodgers behind Matt Kemp's 28 bombs. The Dodgers open a series in Colorado Friday night against the Rockies.
