Dodgers' Kershaw beats Marlins with two-hitter
Saturday, May 28, 2011
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Clayton Kershaw pitched a two-hitter for his second shutout and complete game in the majors, Rafael Furcal hit his first home run of the season and drove in three runs, and the Los Angeles Dodgers routed the Florida Marlins 8-0 on Sunday.
Kershaw (6-3) struck out 10 and walked one in his 95th career start, which was supported by a season-high 17 hits from the Dodgers' sporadic offense. The only hits off the 23-year-old left-hander, who threw 116 pitches, were a leadoff single in the second by Omar Infante and a wind-blown double by Logan Morrison leading off the seventh.
Kershaw's other shutout was on Sept. 14, 2010, when he pitched a four-hitter at San Francisco.
