SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Clayton Kershaw was one pitch better than Tim Lincecum in a matchup of All-Star aces, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers past the San Francisco Giants 1-0 Wednesday.

Kershaw (11-4) allowed three hits in eight innings to help the Dodgers snap a four-game losing streak and six overall to the rival Giants. He struck out 12 to improve his major league lead to 167 this season.

Dioner Nivarro’s solo home run off Lincecum (8-8) landed in McCovey Cove and was the only pop Los Angeles showed on a day hitting coach Jeff Pentland was fired. Dave Hansen was promoted on an interim basis for the rest of the season.

Javy Guerra pitched a perfect ninth for his sixth save.
