After losing 3-6 to the New York Yankees on the 4th, the Dodgers, who lost four straight games, managed to break out of the losing streak thanks to the good pitching of left-hander ace Clayton Kershaw.

In the third inning, the Dodgers took the lead. After James Outman went out with a hit ball, Austin Barnes retired with an infield grounder. Afterwards, Mookie Betts also went out with a ball that fit the body, and Freddie Freeman’s timely hit came out.
After JD Martinez retreated with a fly ball to center fielder, Max Muncy picked a walk and David Peralta hit two RBIs and hit a timely hit to make it 3-0.
Kershaw, who had a scoreless pitch, received three more runs in the fourth inning following the third inning. In the fourth inning, first batter Chris Taylor hit a solo home run, and after Outman walked, Barnes hit the right time.
With a hit by Betts and a sacrifice fly by Freeman, the Dodgers ran away, 6-0. Kershaw, who received ample support for scoring, fought a scoreless effort until the 7th inning. In the 5th inning, he gave up hits and walks one after another after two outs, but seemed to be shaking, but passed the inning with a slider, curve, and four-seam fastball.
Kershaw had consecutive hits in the 6th inning, but continued to pitch a scoreless pitch with two strikeouts. In the 7th inning, Kershaw ended with a tripartite inning. In the 8th and 9th innings, Taylor Scott took over the mound and kept the victory with no runs.
