MLB: LA Dodgers 7, Milwaukee 4

Clayton Kershaw held Milwaukee to a run and two hits in six innings Sunday, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 7-4 win over the Brewers.

Kershaw (7-4) had thrown 103 pitches when he was replaced by Hiroki Kuroda after Mike Cameron's lead-off double in the bottom of the seventh.

Brad Ausmus, Orlando Hudson and James Loney led Los Angeles, all with two hits and two RBI.

One of the hits by Ausmus was a two-out, solo homer in the fourth.

A run scored on Cameron's first-inning error and Manny Ramirez added three of the nine hits for the Dodgers, who rose to a major league best 56-32 record heading into the All-Star break starting Monday.

Three Milwaukee batters had one RBI.

A run scored on James McDonald's eighth-inning wild pitch, while six batters had one hit for the Brewers, who have lost three of four.

The losing pitcher was starter Yovani Gallardo (8-7).
