Clayton Kershaw strikes out nine over 7 1/3 innings, allowing only one run and four walks to earn his fifth win of the season
SAN DIEGO — By the fifth inning Saturday, the Dodgers had built a five-run cushion for Clayton Kershaw in San Diego. There are no locks in baseball. But that’s pretty close.
A noticeably fired-up Kershaw continued his mastery of the Padres, tossing 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball in a 10-2 victory, the Dodgers’ fifth win in six games against San Diego. Kershaw’s ERA dipped to 2.00 in 31 career starts vs. the Friars — and 1.85 at Petco Park.
