Kershaw strikes out 13, wins 7th straight by beating Giants

The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Clayton Kershaw struck out 13 in eight innings, Justin Turner hit a go-ahead homer in the top of the ninth and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 on Friday night.

Kershaw (9-1) outdueled Johnny Cueto to improve to 7-0 over his last eight starts, and with 82 Ks to just three walks during that stretch since an April 26 loss to Miami. He is 3-0 in six road starts.

Turner hit a 2-1 pitch from Santiago Casilla (1-2) to left field to start the ninth and the Dodgers shaved a game off the Giants' NL West lead to pull within three though both clubs know this race surely will be decided down the stretch.

The Dodgers have won the last five games against the Giants when Kershaw pitches, and the lefty is 18-7 in 33 starts facing rival San Francisco.
