Kershaw hit hard, Dodgers top Rockies; Puig hurt
DENVER (AP) — Clayton Kershaw surrendered a career-high 11 hits in five shaky innings and got the win and Yasiel Puig scored the go-ahead run before leaving with a strained right knee as the surging Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 10-8 on Monday.
Puig was called out for interference on the bases in the first inning. He then hurt his knee on an awkward slide into third base and gingerly jogged home on Hanley Ramirez’s sacrifice fly in the sixth, before being replaced in right field.
Andre Ethier had three hits, including a two-run homer, to lift the Dodgers to their fifth straight victory. They’re now 35-8 since the All-Star break.
