LOS ANGELES (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton homered for the third straight game, hitting a go-ahead, three-run shot off Clayton Kershaw, and the Miami Marlins rallied to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-3 on Tuesday night for their third straight victory.

The Marlins trailed 3-0 before scoring five runs in the sixth inning off Kershaw (2-1), capped by Stanton’s drive into the center-field bleachers.

Kershaw’s five earned runs allowed in the inning were as many as he allowed in his first 35 innings to start this season. He hadn’t allowed five runs in an entire game in his last 30 starts.

Kershaw finished with 10 strikeouts in seven innings but got his first loss in his last eight regular-season starts dating to last year.

Tom Koehler (2-2) pitched five innings for the win and A.J. Ramos worked around a two-out, two-on jam in the ninth to close it out for the Marlins.
