The Royals and Dodgers play again Saturday with Ian Kennedy on the mound for the Royals. He rolled through the Royals lineup Sunday with only one mistake - a two-run home run by Eric Hosmer in the fourth inning that grazed center fielder Trayce Thompson's outstretched glove as it just cleared the fence. LAD starter Brandon McCarthy gave up a run on six hits and a pair of bases on balls before Brandon Morrow and Pedro Baez allowed runs that eventually sent this team to extra innings.
Kershaw allowed two runs and six hits, striking out 13 and walking none to improve to 14-2 with a 2.18 ERA on the season.
