Kershaw 2-hits Bucs over 7, Ks 9 in Dodgers' win

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Clayton Kershaw followed up his sensational one-man show on opening day with seven innings of 2-hit ball and nine strikeouts in a spirited duel with A.J. Burnett, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Pittsburgh 1-0 Saturday night for their second straight shutout win over the Pirates.

Kershaw (2-0) walked one and retired 17 consecutive batters after giving up a leadoff single in the first inning to Starling Marte. Last Monday, the 2011 Cy Young Award winner threw a four-hitter against the World Series champion Giants and broke a scoreless tie with his first major league home run.

Brandon League followed Paco Rodriguez and Kenley Jansen out of the bullpen and pitched a hitless ninth for his second save.

Burnett (0-2) was charged with a run and four hits in 5 1-3 innings, walked four and struck out nine - including Matt Kemp all three times he faced him.
