NEW YORK (AP) — Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw pitched five nearly perfect innings and Justin Turner hit an RBI double off Dellin Betances in a two-run ninth that sent Los Angeles over the New York Yankees 2-0 on a rainy Wednesday.
The Dodgers took advantage of errors by second baseman Starlin Castro and Betances to increase their NL West lead to five games over San Francisco.
The Yankees completed a 7-3 homestand and remained two games behind Toronto for the second AL wild card. Next up, they begin an 11-game trip — their longest of the season — to Boston, Tampa Bay and Toronto.
Kershaw gave up one hit without a walk, pitching through two rain delays in his first career start at Yankee Stadium.
