Kershaw makes rehab start

– Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw gave up two runs and six hits in five innings during his injury rehabilitation stint with the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts.

Kershaw struck out nine in his second minor league outing. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner pitched five scoreless innings Friday at Rancho Cucamonga of the Class A California League. Kershaw threw 56 pitches Friday and 86 Wednesday, including a 29-pitch first inning in which he walked the leadoff batter and allowed an RBI double. Kershaw last pitched for the Dodgers on March 22, when they opened the season with a 3-1 win over Arizona in Australia.
