Aug. 17, 2013 at 11:01 PM   |   Comments

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Clayton Kershaw fired eight shutout innings Saturday and the streaking Los Angeles Dodgers tied a major league record with a 5-0 shutout of Philadelphia.

Kershaw (12-7) scattered just three hits, issued a single walk and struck out eight on his way to a sixth straight start of allowing two or fewer earned runs.

The 2011 Cy Young Award winner lowered his major league-best ERA to 1.80 with the performance as the National League West-leading Dodgers reeled off their 10th straight win.

They improved to 42-8 over their last 50 games, tying the MLB record for best mark ever over a 50-game span, joining the 1941 New York Yankees and the 1942 St. Louis Cardinals.

Juan Uribe led Los Angeles at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a three-run homer in the ninth inning.

Kyle Kendrick (10-10) took the loss despite allowing just one earned run on seven hits in a six-inning effort.
