MILWAUKEE (AP) – Clayton Kershaw throttled the streaking Brewers with eight scoreless innings and Rod Barajas homered Thursday, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-1 win over Milwaukee.

The NL Central-leading Brewers came in winners of 19 of 21 and were looking to complete a 7-0 homestand.

But Kershaw (15-5) was tremendous, retiring 13 of his final 14 batters and never facing serious trouble after the third inning.

Barajas hit a solo homer in the second. Los Angeles built a 5-0 lead by scoring twice in the seventh and two more in the eight, the first runs allowed by Milwaukee’s bullpen in the last 10 games.

Milwaukee is 6 1/2 games ahead of idle St. Louis. The Brewers had won five in a row.
