Haren 1-hits Indians through 7 in Dodgers' win

LOS ANGELES — Dan Haren pitched one-hit ball over seven innings — a single that was awarded to Michael Bourn after a video review — and rookie Clint Robinson had a pinch-hit RBI single in the seventh as the Los Angeles Dodgers opened their interleague series against the Cleveland Indians with a 1-0 victory on Monday night.

The defending NL West champion Dodgers took over sole possession first place in the division by a half-game over idle San Francisco and went over the .500 mark at home for the first time this season. The Giants led them by as many as 9 1-2 games as recently as June 8. Since then, Los Angeles has gone 15-6 and San Francisco 4-15.

The Indians, coming off a three-game series at Seattle in which they swapped one-hit shutouts with the Mariners, couldn't do a thing against Haren (8-4) after Felix Hernandez stymied them through eight innings on Sunday.
