Kershaw gives up career-worst three homers

The Sports Xchange

--LHP Clayton Kershaw allowed three home runs Wednesday in Colorado, the first time in his career he has allowed three homers in a game. Rockies LF Carlos Gonzalez became the second player to have a two-homer game against Kershaw, joining Adam Dunn, who did it Aug. 6, 2010. Kershaw allowed five runs in 7 1/3 innings, but he emerged with a no-decision in the Dodgers' 8-5 loss to the Rockies.

--CF Matt Kemp had no intentional walks in the first 24 games of the season but was intentionally walked twice against Colorado on Wednesday. He wound up 1-for-2 with three walks, and he scored two runs.

--INF/OF Jerry Hairston Jr. hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the top of the eighth inning Wednesday in Colorado for his first two RBI of the season. Hairston, who played third base, went 1-for-5, lowering his average to .289.

--OF/1B Juan Rivera started at first base Wednesday in Colorado, his first game played in the field after being relegated to pinch-hitting duty for six games with a strained left hamstring. He went 1-for-4, leaving his average at .250.

--RHP Ronald Belisario allowed two unearned runs in two-thirds of an inning Tuesday night in a rehab appearance for Class AAA Albuquerque. The Venezuelan reliever, who missed all of 2011 with visa problems, is serving a 25-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball's drug policy. He could be activated as soon as Friday, but it's not certain the Dodgers will call him up immediately.

3 -- Home runs allowed by LHP Clayton Kershaw in Colorado on Wednesday, the first time in his career he has allowed that many homers in a game.

"I am telling each and every one of you right now. This is the last new ownership press conference I will ever attend." -- Legendary announcer Vin Scully, to the new Dodgers owners in their introductory press conference.
