Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw throws against the Chicago White Sox

Kershaw pitches Dodgers to win over White Sox

LOS ANGELES — Clayton Kershaw shrugged off a two-run homer by Jose Abreu in the rookie's return from the disabled list, pitching the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Chicago White Sox 5-2 Monday night for his first home win of the season.

Justin Turner's two-run single keyed a five-run sixth inning in which all the Dodgers' runs were unearned.

Kershaw (4-2) allowed four hits over eight innings, striking out nine and walking none. Kenley Jansen got three outs for his 17th save.

Jose Quintana (3-5) gave up six hits through six innings and was charged with five unearned runs.

The Dodgers parlayed two infield errors, four singles and a walk into the five-run rally that put them ahead 5-2. All the runs came with two outs.
