James Loney had two RBI, and the offensively challenged Los Angeles Dodgers parlayed three errors by the New York Mets into six unearned runs to help Clayton Kershaw win 8-3 on Sunday night and avoid a sweep. Kershaw (6-4) allowed three runs (one earned) and five hits over seven innings with nine strikeouts and three walks. Last year's NL Cy Young winner, named to the All-Star team for the second straight season just hours before taking the mound, overcame a pair of costly errors by shortstop Dee Gordon in the third and improved his career record against the Mets to 5-0 with a 1.37 ERA in six starts. The victory snapped a season-worst seven-game losing streak by the Dodgers, who avoided what would have been the Mets' first four-game sweep against them. New York didn't get another baserunner after Ruben Tejada's leadoff single in the fifth. Dillon Gee (5-7) took the loss.
