Kershaw leads Dodgers past Nats

Kershaw leads Dodgers past Nats

(Los Angeles, CA)  —  Clayton Kershaw was an out away from a complete-game in leading the Dodgers to a 2-0 win over the Nationals.  Kershaw allowed five hits over eight-and-two-thirds innings while striking out 11 and walking just one to improve to 4-and-2.  Kenley Jansen struck out Tyler Moore to end the game for his second save.  Andre Ethier’s two-run single in the third gave Los Angeles all the offense it needed for its third win in four games.  Dan Haren surrendered the two runs over seven innings to take the hard-luck loss and fall to 4-and-4.  Ryan Zimmerman was 3-for-4 for Washington, which has lost three out of four since a five-game winning streak.
