Kershaw dominates in shutout over Brewers

Good pitching beats good hitting almost all of the time.  That’s the way it played out in

Los Angeles yesterday as Clayton Kershaw retired 18-straight hitters during one stretch to lead the Dodgers to a 2-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Kershaw collected 12 strikeouts and walked no one to improve to 3-2 and lower his ERA to 1.73.

Kyle Lohse was the hard luck loser again for the Brewers.  Lohse worked 7 solid innings, but allowed a pair of Carl Crawford solo home runs to suffer the loss.  Lohse dropped to 1-2 with a 2.53 ERA in five starts this season.

The Brewers dropped 2 of 3 in the series with the Dodgers.  They’ll return home to Milwaukee to host the Pittsburgh Pirates at Miller Park tonight.
