MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Clayton Kershaw won his 14th game to tie for the National League lead, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 on Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep in a matchup of divisional leaders.

Kershaw (14-2) allowed a run and six hits with two walks and six strikeouts in eight innings. He allowed leadoff hitters to reach base in four of the first five innings of an outing that might qualify as a subpar effort for the two-time Cy Young Award winner.

Nevertheless, the left-handed ace lowered his league-leading ERA to 1.78. Adrian Gonzalez drove in two runs, and scored the go-ahead run in the fifth off Jimmy Nelson (2-3).

Kershaw also reached base three times and had an RBI single in the eighth.
