Kershaw gives up 1st career GS in loss to Phils

Aaron Altherr hit a grand slam, the first ever given up by Clayton Kershaw, to lead the Philadelphia Phillies past the Los Angeles Dodgers and their ace 4-3 on Monday night.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Clayton Kershaw was sailing along with a shutout in the sixth inning tonight when he gave up his first career grand slam -- a monster shot by Phillies outfielder Aaron Altherr. Kershaw had been sharp with his breaking ball all night, but he threw one too many sliders to Altherr. Manager Dave Roberts pulled Kershaw for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning. The Dodgers, who have a magic number of four to clinch the NL West, trail the Phillies 4-2.

Strasburg ends scoreless streak, but Nats beat Dodgers 7-1

Stephen Strasburg ended his club-record scoreless streak at 35 innings, but two home runs from Ryan Zimmerman helped the All-Star win his fourth consecutive start as the Washington Nationals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-1 on Sunday night.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

The Nats bats awoke from their deep lumber slumber with seven runs and three jacks (two by Ryan Zimmerman) in the last three innings to beat the Dodgers 7-1 and avoid being swept at home. With the victory, Dusty Baker reaches 90 wins for the 10th time in his career, becoming the 12th skipper in MLB history to do so. The other 11 are all in the Hall of Fame.
