Kershaw rebounds, Dodgers go deep 5 times in rout of Rangers


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Clayton Kershaw bounced back from two bad outings with six sharp innings, Gavin Lux drove in four runs and hit one of five Dodgers homers, and Los Angeles routed the Texas Rangers 12-1. Max Muncy, Justin Turner and Lux homered in the first inning, a smashing start to open the Dodgers’ seven-game homestand. Albert Pujols and Will Smith also went deep as Los Angeles won its fourth in a row and sent Texas to its 16th straight road loss. Kershaw, who had allowed five runs in each of his last two starts for the first time since 2011, gave up only one unearned and three hits. Kershaw struck out nine and walked none. He also got two hits.
