Dodgers Vs. Mets Final Score: Clayton Kershaw Helps Snap 7-Game Skid

The Los Angeles Dodgers finally scored some runs on Sunday, with a little help from three errors by the New York Mets. The Dodgers beat the Mets 8-3 on Sunday night to snap a seven-game losing streak, and matched their run total for their previous eight games.

Clayton Kershaw pitched seven strong innings, striking out nine for his sixth win of the year. He allowed three runs, but just one was earned. Kershaw was named to his second straight All-Star Game earlier in the day, and his manager had high praise for his ace after the game.

"I don't care what Clayton's record is. I'll take him any day of the week against anybody," manager Don Mattingly said. "If this guy isn't the best pitcher in baseball, he's right there."

Dee Gordon had two errors for the Dodgers, but he also had two hits and stole three bases.

The Dodgers welcome the Cincinnati Reds to town for a three-game series beginning Monday. Chad Billingsley starts the opener, against Homer Bailey for the Reds.
