Kershaw, Dodgers pin 1st loss on Jimenez

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Clayton Kershaw bounced back from the shortest start of his brief career with eight innings of two-hit ball, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 2-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

Kershaw (2-2) held the Rockies to a pair of infield hits - including a bunt single by cleanup hitter Troy Tulowitzki - and picked off Eric Young after walking him with two out in the fifth. The 22-year-old left-hander struck out nine, walked three and fanned five-time All-Star Todd Helton his first three times up.

Last Tuesday, Kershaw retired only four of the 13 batters he faced, lasted just 1 1-3 innings against the Milwaukee Brewers. He was charged with seven runs during a nine-run second.

Russell Martin homered with two out in the eighth against Matt Daley and Jonathan Broxton allowed two hits in the ninth before picking up his third save in five attempts.
