LOS ANGELES (AP) In a couple of months, Clayton Kershaw might need to make some room at home for a fourth NL Cy Young Award.
Kershaw became the first 18-game winner in the majors, pitching eight stingy innings to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers over the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on Sunday.
Yasmani Grandal homered and drove in all three runs for the NL West champions. Kershaw (18-4) allowed only Mac Williamson's home run in the eighth and was aided by four double plays. He gave up eight hits, did not walk a batter and struck out six.
