LOS ANGELES (AP) --- Clayton Kershaw scattered three hits over eight innings
while outdueling Tyson Ross, Justin Turner hit a two-run homer and the
first-place Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the San Diego Padres 2-1
Kershaw (15-3) struck out 10 and walked two, tying Johnny Cueto, Wily Peralta
and Adam Wainwright for the major league lead in victories. The left-hander was
originally scheduled to start Friday, but he was moved up to give Zack Greinke
extra rest for his sore elbow.
Pitching on regular rest after Monday's day off, Kershaw retired 12 in a row
before giving up his first hit --- a single by Ross --- with two outs in the
Kenley Jansen pitched the ninth to earn his 36th save.
Ross (11-12) allowed two runs and four hits in eight innings, struck out eight
and walked two.
