Dodgers put a lot of things together to beat the Mets, 6-0

Clayton Kershaw scattered five hits over eight innings and the Dodgers parlayed extra-base hits by Matt Kemp, Juan Uribe, Aaron Miles and Dioner Navarro into a five-run sixth inning to beat the New York Mets, 6-0, on Thursday night at Dodger Stadium to snap a five-game losing skid.
The loss ended the Mets' four-game winning streak and kept them from sweeping the Dodgers for the first time in four games at Chavez Ravine.
Kershaw (9-4) struck out nine and walked two in his last start before the All-Star break. The left-hander, who will pitch in his first All-Star game next week in Phoenix, came within one strikeout of his fourth straight double-digit game, something that hadn't been done by a Dodgers pitcher since Hideo Nomo in1995.
Kershaw got out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth by striking out Ronny Paulino to end the inning after getting a visit from manager Don Mattingly.
The Mets loaded the bases again in the ninth against Kenley Jansen before Hong-Chih Kuo got the final two outs.
Dillon Gee (8-3) gave up five hits and six runs — five earned — struck out two and walked one to lose his second straight.
