GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Clayton Kershaw pitched into the sixth inning on his 24th birthday for the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 4-3 loss Monday to the Cleveland Indians.

The NL Cy Young Award winner allowed one run — his first this spring — and three singles over 5 1-3 innings. The left-hander walked two and struck out four. He got eight outs on grounders and has a 0.73 ERA in 12 1-3 innings over three starts this spring.

Carlos Santana hit the first pitch from Dodgers reliever Javy Guerra for his second homer and a 2-0 lead.

Indians starter Jeanmar Gomez pitched one-hit ball for four innings in his first Cactus League start. The right-hander has yet to give up a run in 11 innings over four outings.

Jose Lopez had an RBI single off Kershaw in the first. Lonnie Chisenhall added a two-run single in the eighth for Cleveland.
