  • DENVER — 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, as the Dodgers won their fifth straight. The NL West leaders are 35-8 since the All-Star break.
    Kershaw (14-8) gave up five runs as his ERA jumped from a league-leading 1.72 to 1.89. He was productive at the plate, lining a two-run single.
    Jeff Manship (0-5) took the loss in relief.
