MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers 1, Pittsburgh 0

April 7, 2013 at 12:49 AM   |   Comments

LOS ANGELES, April 7 (UPI) -- Clayton Kershaw struck out nine Saturday and took part in his second shutout in as many starts, boosting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 1-0 win over Pittsburgh.

Kershaw (2-0) worked seven innings, giving up two hits and walking one.

In his first start of the season, the Dodgers blanked San Francisco 4-0 with Kershaw hitting a homer for the first Los Angeles run.

The only score in this one came in the third when Carl Crawford reached on a two-out, infield single, stole second and came in on a base hit by Mark Ellis.

Starling Marte singled to open the first inning for Pittsburgh and reached third base with two outs, but he was the only runner the Pirates had until the sixth.

Neil Walker reached on a two-out walk in the ninth against Brandon League, but League then retired Andrew McCutchen on a grounder to second and picked up his second save.

A.J. Burnett (0-2) was the hard-luck loser, allowing the lone run on four hits while going 5 1/3 innings.
