Kershaw dominates Brewers, Crawford homers twice

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Clayton Kershaw retired 18 consecutive batters and struck out 12 in eight dominant innings, Carl Crawford homered twice against Kyle Lohse and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-0 on Sunday.

Kershaw (3-2) scattered four hits and didn't walk a batter while lowering his ERA to 1.73. The 2011 Cy Young Award winner, who led the NL in ERA in each of the previous two seasons, hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his last 18 starts -- the longest active streak in the majors. The last time he did was July 24, 2012, when he gave up eight at St. Louis.

Lohse (1-2) gave up five hits and no walks while striking out four.
