Clayton Kershaw (8.0 innings pitched, 9 strike outs, 1 earned run) and Matt Kemp (27th home run of the year) did their thing as the Dodgers beat the visiting Astros 6-1.  Tony Gwynn Jr. also had a brilliant night at the plate as he went 3 for 4 with a triple,  and a stolen base.  Also, congratulations to Justin Sellers who recorded his first hit of his major league career. 

WP - Clayton Kershaw  (14-5): 8 IP, 9 strikeouts, 1 walk, 6 hits
