Dodgers Vs. A's Final Score: Yoenis Cespedes Walk-Off Home Run Seals Oakland Sweep

Clayton Kershaw gave the Los Angeles Dodgers a chance on Thursday afternoon, but it wasn't enough for a sputtering offense. Yoenis Cespedes hit a walk-off, three-run home run off Josh Lindblom in the ninth inning to give the Oakland Athletics a 4-1 win over the Dodgers and a three-game sweep.

The Dodgers totaled two runs and eight hits in three games in Oakland, where they have lost 12 of 14 regular season games in interleague play.

Kershaw allowed just one run in eight innings, striking out seven along the way. But he was matched by Travis Blackley, who allowed one run and three hits in eight innings himself. Both starters took home no-decisions for their efforts.

Ryan Cook pitched a scoreless ninth inning for the A's for his second win of the season.

The Dodgers, now 5-7 in interleague play this season, move on to Anaheim, where they will open up a three-game series against the Angels on Friday night. Chad Billingsley pitches for the Dodgers in the opener, facing Dan Haren.
