LOS ANGELES (AP) - Clayton Kershaw extended his scoreless streak to 37 innings with eight innings of two-hit ball and batterymate Yasmani Grandal hit a two-run homer, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-1 victory over the Angels on Saturday.

Kershaw (9-6) struck out seven, walked one and retired his last 15 batters while working on eight days' rest. His previous start was a three-hit shutout on July 23 at New York in which he took a perfect game into the seventh inning. The three-time Cy Young Award winner hasn't given up a run since Wilmer Flores' RBI single for the Mets on July 3 at Dodger Stadium.

Kenley Jansen, battling a virus for the past four days, pitched a shaky ninth for his 20th save in 21 attempts. He ended it by retiring Erick Aybar on a popup with runners at the corners after giving up an RBI single by Pujols.

Andrew Heaney (5-1) was charged with two runs and four hits in 5 1-3 innings.
