LOS ANGELES (AP) Kike Hernandez homered his first two times up against Madison Bumgarner, drove in four runs and prevented two more with a diving catch in left field, leading Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 7-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Friday night.

Kershaw (2-0) was charged with three runs - two earned - and five hits over seven innings with six strikeouts and no walks. The Giants scored their first two runs on the left-hander's first two wild pitches of the season.

Bumgarner (1-1) gave up seven runs - four earned - and five hits in five-plus innings. He struck out seven, but his teammates committed three errors behind him. The 2014 World Series and NLCS MVP was 3-0 with a 1.23 ERA in his other three head-to-head showdowns with Kershaw at Dodger Stadium.
