Kershaw perfect for Dodgers through 6 innings

LOS ANGELES (AP) Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers is pitching a no-hitter through eight innings against the Colorado Rockies.

The two-time Cy Young Award winner had not allowed a baserunner until Corey Dickerson reached on a two-base throwing error by shortstop Hanley Ramirez to start the seventh.

That is the only runner Kershaw has permitted.

Kershaw has struck out a career-high 14 batters, including all three in the sixth inning. He has thrown 101 pitches, 73 for strikes.

The Dodgers lead 8-0.
