Kershaw dominates Brewers, Crawford homers twice
LA DODGERS 2, MILWAUKEE 0

By JOE RESNICK
Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Clayton Kershaw retired 18 consecutive
batters and struck out 12 in eight dominant innings, Carl
Crawford homered twice against Kyle Lohse and the Los Angeles
Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-0 on Sunday.



Kershaw (3-2) scattered four hits and didn't walk a batter while
lowering his ERA to 1.73. The 2011 Cy Young Award winner, who
led the NL in ERA in each of the previous two seasons, hasn't
allowed more than three earned runs in any of his last 18 starts
- the longest active streak in the majors. The last time he did
was July 24, 2012, when he gave up eight at St. Louis.



Kershaw stranded runners in scoring position in each of the
first two innings, retiring Jonathan Lucroy on a double-play
grounder in the first and striking out Martin Maldonado to end
the second. He gave up a leadoff double in the eighth to Carlos
Gomez, who tried to advance on a broken-bat comebacker to
Kershaw and was tagged out by third baseman Juan Uribe in a
rundown.



Kershaw's string of consecutive outs began after Rickie Weeks'
bloop double leading off the second.



Milwaukee's only other hits were one-out singles in the first by
Jean Segura and Ryan Braun. It was the left-hander's fifth game
with at least 12 strikeouts.



Kershaw began the season with 4-0 and 1-0 wins over San
Francisco and Pittsburgh, allowing no runs over 16 innings. On
opening day, he threw a complete-game four-hitter



Brandon League pitched a perfect ninth inning for his eighth
save in nine chances.



Crawford drove Lohse's first pitch of the game over the center
field fence. It was the fourth time that the right-hander gave
up a home run to his first batter in 336 career starts - and the
first one that came on his very first pitch. Crawford's second
homer came on an 0-2 count and landed in the right field
pavilion. It was his sixth multihomer game in the majors and
first since July 8, 2010, for the Tampa Bay Rays against
Cleveland's Jake Westbrook.



Lohse (1-2) gave up five hits and no walks while striking out
four. The 13-year veteran had allowed only one home run in 25
innings over his first four starts for the Brewers, who signed
him to a three-year, $33 million contract as a free agent on
March 25.



NOTES: Kershaw threw 117 pitches. The other leadoff homers Lohse
has given up were by Jose Valentin (2001), Chuck Knoblauch
(2002) and Jayson Werth (2011). ... Ramon Hernandez made his
fourth start behind the plate for the Dodgers. His other three
came in LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu's last three starts. ... Lohse reached
the 2,000-inning mark for his 13-year career when he retired
Kershaw on a grounder to shortstop to end the second. ... Lohse,
coming off a 7-1 win last Monday at San Diego, hasn't won
consecutive road starts since last April against Cincinnati and
Pittsburgh. ... Dodgers LHP Ted Lilly makes his second start on
Monday night in the opener of a three-game series with Colorado.
He is 4-0 with a 2.15 ERA in four career starts against the
Rockies at Dodger Stadium, including a two-hit shutout with 11
strikeouts on Aug. 19, 2010. ... Brewers RHP Yovani Gallardo
will pitch the opener of a three-game set against Pittsburgh on
Monday at Miller Park. He is 6-0 with a 2.18 ERA in his last
seven starts overall against the Pirates.
