Gallo homers off Kershaw in Rangers' 5-3 win over Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Rookie slugger Joey Gallo hit a two-run homer off Clayton Kershaw, and Prince Fielder also went deep to lead the Texas Rangers over the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 Wednesday night.

Wandy Rodriguez (4-2) shrugged off leadoff doubles by Yasiel Puig and Scott Van Slyke in each of the first two innings to win his third straight decision in a span of six starts. The left-hander is 4-0 with a 2.28 ERA in seven starts on the road.

Keone Kela pitched a hitless ninth for his first major league save. Regular closer Shawn Tolleson got the night off following three consecutive appearances.

Kershaw (5-4) allowed four runs and five hits through six innings and struck out 10 after going 3-0 with a 0.94 ERA over his previous four starts. It was the first career appearance against the Rangers for the reigning NL MVP and three-time Cy Young Award winner, who was born in Dallas.
