Dodgers beat Braves 2-1 on Kershaw's 9-hitter

LOS ANGELES (AP) Clayton Kershaw would have welcomed a little help from the umpires in the ninth inning, if only to end the game a bit sooner. When he didn't get it, the Dodgers' ace finished off the Braves on his own.

He scattered nine hits and struck out nine while tying his career-best winning streak of 10 games in a 2-1 victory Thursday night that completed Los Angeles' three-game sweep of Atlanta.

"Fortunately for us a lot of times he comes out on top," catcher A.J. Ellis said. "He's an amazing talent who is just as strong in the ninth as he is in the first. There's no drop-off ever. We're spoiled rotten."
