 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Clayton Kershaw outdueled Jake Westbrook with a six-hitter for his fourth career shutout, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over the St. Louis Cardinals 6-0 Saturday night.

Justin Sellers triggered a four-run seventh inning with his first home run of the season for the NL West-leading Dodgers, who improved the best record in the majors to 27-13.

Kershaw (4-1) got the seventh complete game of his career, striking out four and not allowing a runner past second base against an offense that came in leading the NL in team batting average, runs, homers, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. He did not walk a batter for the third time this season while lowering his ERA from 2.22 to 1.90.

Westbrook (4-3) was charged with four runs — three earned — and six hits in 6 1-3 innings
