May 7, 2016

TORONTO (AP) Clayton Kershaw struck out 10, Joc Pederson and Justin Turner hit solo home runs and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Toronto 6-2 Saturday, ending the Blue Jays' season-high winning streak at four.

Coming off a three-hit shutout against the Padres and facing the Blue Jays for the first time, Kershaw (4-1) allowed two runs and eight hits in seven innings. He walked none and won back-to-back starts for the first time this season.

The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner has fanned at least 10 in four straight outings. Kershaw extended his major league lead in strikeouts (64) and passed Toronto's Marcus Stroman to take top spot in innings (53). He threw a season-high 112 pitches, 78 strikes.

Pedro Baez worked the eighth and Kenley Jansen finished as the Dodgers won for the third time in 11 games.


Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (1-4) lost his fourth straight decision, allowing four runs and six hits in seven innings.
